It used to be one of my favorite places in Barcelona but now the menu is quite short. One thing to consider if you are paying with USD credit card they use an very abusive exchange rate and they didn’t allow you to chose if...More

We went to 4 Gats on a rainy day. Upon arrival, we were asked if we wanted a full meal or tapas (snacks) for lunch. We opted for a full meal and we were promptly escorted into a rear restaurant. A very classy dining room....More

Amazing atmosphere. Lots of artwork by artists such as Picasso. Food and wine was really good. I would highly recommend.

Of course, we had to go to El Quatre Gats in Barcelona, just experience where Pablo Picasso and friends hung out. It was great. Good tapas. Good, but somewhat abrupt service. Lots of energy in the place. Prices are a little high, but it was...More

The service was decent and the place was clean. The tapa was horribly expensive and poor quality AND quantity. The cava was a decent price and quality. You can certainly to better. In summation, I doubt you’d find Picasso there now.

There are so many excellent restaurants in BCN that I think you may want to try another one. If you want to experience the decor, etc. stop in for a coffee and churros.

Description
Landmark of the city of Barcelona and Catalan modernism, it opened on June 12, 1897 in the basement of a building designed by the architect Puig i Cadafalch, on the street Montsió 3a and once was intended to bring to Barcelona the most bohemian Parisian atmosphere. Place of worship of intellectuals and artists of the time, it was the first refuge of inspiration for Pablo Picasso. In 2008, it was chosen by Woody Allen to host one of the main scenes in its film 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona', dedicated to the city. All this cultural and historic experience comes with exceptional gastronomy. All the dishes are prepared with proximity products and cooked with all the care and passion by our chef. Whitout any doubt, 4 Gats is a unique experience in Barcelona.
