Description: Based on an exhaustive selection of the best raw materials in our region, the gastronomic offer is made from simple and tasty tapas to a full season tasting menu. Paying the utmost attention in the respect for the raw materials, producers and our environment, we work to make the gastronomic experience not only pleasant and fun, but also sustainable, fair and healthy. 80% of the products we use in our kitchen, from vegetables, meats and fish, to wines, beverages and breads, come from small producers in the region. This obliges us and allows us to always work with seasonal products and update our menus permanently. We do not use gluten or lactose and the sugar from our desserts is integral and environmentally friendly. The visit of our clients, then, becomes a comprehensive event ranging from the sensory enjoyment proper to an emotional satisfaction derived from the knowledge of knowing that what is being enjoyed also contributes to strengthen the local economy and Our own health.

“10 stars out of 5!!!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Some foodie friends of mine from NYC recommended Montiel and it did not disappoint! We were very lucky that our hotel could get us a same day reservation and we ate here for Thanksgiving. We did the tasting menu and it was a real treat! The staff is wonderful and cares deeply about the experience you are having and the food that is prepared. To help you find the restaurant, it is located in a small alley way and our cab driver was a little unsure of the location.

“Supurb dinner”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

After reading the reviews we decided to try this restaurant out. First try was Saturday night and they were booked. We made a reservation for tonight, Sunday at 7. We have been in Barcelona for 8 days now and visited many retaurants for afternoon and night dining. Montiel is by far our best experience. We are both A type people but were encouraged to take our time for this slow cooking time experience. The food was supurb and the wait staff very attentive. Thanks for a great recomendation.

“Fantastic restaurant”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We went here on a business dinner, the food was amazing and the staff was incredibly service minded.

We had the Chef's 7 course menu and I can strongly recommend this to everyone going here!

After dinner our waiter even followed us to a friendly pub nearby and made sure that they put a few tables together so we could continue our pleasant evening. TALK about SERVICE! :)

Can't wait to go back the next time I'm in Barcelona :)

“Best Lamb I Have Ever Eaten!!!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

The title says it all. This place really had the best lamb I have ever had and I enjoy fine dining often. Nice atmosphere, decent wine selection, but don't miss the lamb!

“Pricey but fabulous!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Absolutely amazingly wonderful! The service is truly excellent - friendly and helpful - for both menu and wine suggestions. The best lamb we've ever had (and we get lamb almost everywhere we go). Starter of suckling pig and scallops - takes a little extra time, but well worth it. The lobster rice was paella style short grain rice with bits of lobster and spicy sausage, a whole claw and 1/2 small tail - again, lovely, and the best we've had in Barcelona. Dessert of white chocolate mousse (has a warm chocolate mousse sauce on top with a dollop of mango ice cream buried within) a perfect ending. All that said, it was 140E for two, including a 45E wine. They do offer a 50E set menu, with 25E wine pairing. No question we'll go again, when our budget allows.
