We had the most fantastic lunch here. There were six of us, plus a baby. The service was outstanding and the food surprising and delicious. I'm not sure I'd have the chicken donut again but the potatoes bravas, the salmon salad and the berry and...More

Lucky to find this little place just off the main shopping area in Barcelona. Lovely surroundings with wine at 4 Euros per glass (inc. taxes). Thoroughly recommend 4 Gats for service, decor and ambience.

Daughter heard about this place in her Spanish class and it was her pick to visit. Staff was accommodating. Things were good. But nothing special.

Great combination of ambiance, food & service made for a most enjoyable lunch. The Padrón Peppers were the best I've tasted in Barcelona!

The dinner was good,but the bread was not ordered, but included into the bill, so not good for reputation of the place. Hopefully, the bill was corrected then we asked.

My wife and I have just made a reservation for 3 weeks from now. We have been to this restaurant twice in the past but are concerned about all the recent negative reviews. Has it really gone downhill? Has anyone had a good experience lately. We would rather spend our money on a restaurant that we will enjoy. Thanks for the help.

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.
