“Great food and the balcony is lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Good service and great food. We both went for steak main courses and they were delicious. The outside balcony area is lovely on summer evenings. Just mind that you don't sleep under sleeping (and potentially pooping) pigeons. Lovely end to our two night break in the town.

“Good food and not so good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

We visited this restaurant twice and had problems with the service both times. The food is very good value for the money though. The first visit we asked for a bottle of wine and they brought it and then the waitress was distracted by another diner and left the table without bringing wine glasses or a cooler for the bottle. We later ordered asking for the salad before the main course of bacalao with pure and they brought the main dish after 35 or 40 mins. and then the salad five minutes later. The next visit my son ordered grilled beef and they brought him the fish that my wife and I ordered for ourselves. Although the food was very good and the prices were very reasonable I won´t be coming back because the service was terrible.

“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012 via mobile

Great meal. Do be warned this place can fill up quick!

The patio upstairs provides a nice place to sit.

Had a nice big piece of beef. Perfectly cooked.

“Service with a smile !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

In a nice, quiet street, just outside the squares with tourist traps, you will find Restaurante Bar Art & Gula. The facade looks less inviting, but you are surprised by the appearance inside. It is lively and buzzing in A & G. Although it was crowded, I could get, without booking a table on the first floor. The crowd was not annoying and the staff was very attentive and friendly. I initially feared long delays, but a compliment to staff and kitchen. Very efficient, everything is served on time and with a smile. I've taken wine by the glass and was pleasantly surprised to see they are not frugal when pouring. The food was delicious, the atmosphere lively, enjoyable and definitely a place to come back.
