Yes, it is true. Picasso frequented this place early in his career. The place was a veritable center of the modernism movement back in the day. The name comes from the local Catalan expression “four cats”, meaning just a few people. There were also four founders back in 1897, and the “cats” was a tribute to the legendary Parisian café...

While in Barcelona, we visited Els 4Gats. The restaurant's decoration, design, and aesthetic ambiance is the attraction. One feels transported back to the early 20th century when Picasso, Casas, and other literati frequented this locale. The food, however, seems dated, very traditional, and served in a fuzzy fashion. I wasn't impressed by the tapas; they seemed quite ordinary without flair.... More

Popped in for lunch today. The building is amazing with awesome history, and the interior is quaint and charming. The food, however, was just okay, and the service was terrible. Potatoes brava are chips with sauce on them. The prawns were good but salty and served cold. The sausage dish tasted like potatoes mostly. Had to ask multiple times for... More

We went here and enjoyed decent food in nice and historic surroundings! If you are 3 or more reserve a round table in the restaurant, if you are 2 maybe on the first floor - that gives the best experience...

Picasso and Dali used to eat here. Good enough for them, then for sure good enough for me. I came here some years ago and really liked it. Same this time, same staff. Wonderful main dining room with high vaulted ceiling a verandah around the wall with tables for two on it. Super food, great service, real, genuine feel of... More

Judging by the fact that only tourists enter the place, we should have left in a second, instead we stayed for an overpriced and mediocre meal. My Girlfriend ordered the squid with butifarra and it was terrible (it can only be described as the result of a talentless chef's idea to stuff a saussage up a squids inkhole) I had... More

I wanted to go here for the history of the restaurant even though I had heard it was a bit of a tourist trap. Didn't feel that at all. We had reservations and the place was somewhat busy. We were seated at a table right next to a service station. When we asked to be moved upstairs we were immediately... More
