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

Located in the Gothic Quarter and a place Picasso use to visit. We had Lunch here and it didn't disappoint. We ordered several things including Anoxes sobre brioix, Les braves mes canalles, musclos al for de llenya, and tartar de tonyina amb amanida d'alvocat. Everything...tastes grand. The presentation and atmosphere were beautiful. My favorite dish was the Les Braves!More

This was a great restaurant with wonderful staff. We arrived in town late and didn't know if they would serve us or we would need to hurry as they closed in 30 minutes, but they stayed open to serve us and were not rushing us...at all. The servers were very friendly, kind, enjoyable to talk with, and helpful (Robert/Paco). We were in Barcelona for only 4 days, but we ate here several times as their food was so delicious. The history of the restaurant and pictures on the walls of everyone who ate there was really neat as well. Cannot say enough nice things about this restaurant.More

My third time here — and it couldn’t be most amazing. Love everything about “4 gats”: cuisine, ambience, live music, staff. Roberto and Gonzalo, you are my idols of Barcelona hospitality! Thank you for being such awesome guys! Going to be back!

A long standing dream of our group- breakfast in London, lunch in Paris and dinner in Barcelona- was achieved. This was the final stage. Having got off our train and checked into our accommodation, we were ready to walk into the old town for a...late dinner. We were booked in for 10:30, but were a little late. That didn’t seem to matter. We chose the tapas bar. Beers and guns& tonic came quickly and we asked them to choose a mixed tapas for the seven of us. The food was prompt and varied, and rounded off our day perfectly. The ambience was good, with many portraits and pictures. This was reputedly a haunt of Picasso.More

Decided to give it a go anyway even though we knew it would be a bit of a tourist trap. The food and service was OK, just wasn't as "atmospheric" as maybe we'd hoped.

Had not been to this restaurant for MANY years. Returned recently and had a great experience (again). 4 Gats, meaning 4 Cats, famously became a popular meeting place for famous artists throughout the modernist period in Catalonia, known as Modernisme. It was founded in 1897...and still going strong. The decoration of the restaurant was unchanged and it's worth a visit for his history and the food. Perfect quality served by a very friendly waiter who had some good suggestions on mains and deserts. Price-wise, maybe on the higher end, 79 Euros for two, but worth it. The hours are from 12 to midnight.More

Just went for coffee. Great setting and the well known history. Staff per good, especially as obviously catering to tourists mainly.

We were looking for somewhere to rest, have a drink and some a coulpe of tapas. The service was correct and the dishes were delivered promptly. All were tasty. There is a bit of a price / quality and serving size. The food was great...but left us hungry. A couple of nearby tables where a bit high speaking so we worked around that. I have a hearing diffiuclty. Our rating is ok and you will have a good experience.More

Awesome restaurant great food. Pablo Picasso’s favorite restaurant, he designed their menu in his heyday. Gin and tonic is their signature drink atmosphere quintessential! If you are 2 or more you can order the paella which looked amazing! I was solo so could not order...it. I had the margarita which was crazy-good and strong! Service staff was typically euro rude, but I feel that’s part of the ambience personally. Know what you want before the waitress gets to your table she had no patience or time for indecisive Americans.More
