Gelonch is a fantastic restaurant with a really cool vibe. We ate outside on the street on a balmy evening and enjoyed the degustation. This gave us the opportunity to try things that we would not have perhaps ordinarily ordered. The food is a wonderful fusion of modern Asian and Spanish. Some really unique pairings of contrasting food that was... More

Each course on the short tasting menu was unique and flavorful. The restaurant has a nice wine list and the markup seemed reasonable. Our wine choice required decanting, which our server should have known. Other than that, the rest of her service was impeccable: informative, available and well-timed. We were the only patrons for about an hour dining mid-week until... More

Found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and since it was just up from the apartment we gave it a try. Yum. We did the short tasting menu. Not a single miss on the menu. Flavours were amazing and complimented each other on each dish. The butter fish and the pork and octopus dishes were particularly outstanding. The recommended catalin white wine... More

My partner and I had a fantastic tasting menu experience. Every course was delicious and satisfying. The waitress recommended a tasty cava and a nice Chardonnay to go along with the 10 course tasting menu. The pumpkin soup with red curry was out of this world. The food is clever, playful, and appetizing.

really nothing special. very small portions and slow service so the 5 course menu feels like a walk in the desert with a few oasis. small but also understaffed, poor table setup. we required a vegeterian menu and were served a dish with something suspect. when asked if it was meat, we were replied "well no, it's chicken". offered another...

We all thought the food was creative , excellent fusion cuisine. The waitress was extremely attentive . We were very impressed with the wine list and the mark up was very... More

We have had some experience with top restaurants and Gelonch, although perhaps not as well-known, is definitely up there. We had the Killa degustation and it was wonderful. Each course (I think about 12 in all) was very well put together and the flavours were exquisite. It was a special meal in a special place. The price is on par... More

I really wanted to 'wow' this restaurant, as a chef running a small 'fusion' restaurant deserves supporting, but our meal fell short of the standard that I am sure the chef aspires to. We took the short (5 course) tasting menu; a wonderful start with the jicama taco, followed by the rabbit roll, which was good but the filling was... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
