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.

We ate here on Saturday and were very pleased with our meal.
Booking communication was very efficient, and we found the restaurant location easy enough. Its a good 15 minute walk from Las Ramblas, so took us into a different quarter of the city, which was interesting.
There was a 50euro or 65euro tasting menu, and the matching flight of wine was 30euros each.
I dont eat shell fish, but this wasnt a problem, as that course was substituted for tuna without fuss. I particularly liked the poached egg on pork course, and enjoyed the red wine that was served with the lamb.
I thought they could have been a little more generous with the flight of wine, but apart from that we had a good experience.
Yes, many of the other diners were tourists, but then thats hardly surprising given the restaurants ranking on TA. We would happily return.

It's really nothing special (there's nothing wrong with the place) but the dishes are a little boring and you'll probably forget about it - I wouldn't recommend it to a friend

2 gastronomic menus (it's a lot of food) + wine pairings = 200 euros

We managed to get a table this evening, 4 persons, and we were highly impressed. Superb food and great value for money. 1/4 th the price of restaurant Maemo in Oslo but at least 4 times as good. The Norwegians WILL be back!

I used trip adviser to find this restaurant when in Barcelona for husbands birthday and I am so glad I did.

It is located on a side road so I would never have found it otherwise. The food and wine were sublime and the service excellent. The waiter really seemed to engage with each table he served which gave the experience a more personal touch.

We chose the smaller of the two tasting menus, the only course we were not to keen on was the salted cod, but I think this is due to our taste rather than anything else.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and would definitely return.

After traveling through France and ending in Barcelona we wanted to end our trip on a great meal and Montiel did not disappoint. I have a severe dairy allergy and they were so accommodating. We both got the tasting menu and it was all very good. Go here, you won't regret it! Best service and attention we have ever had and we had. Wished we hadn't wasted our time at Lasarte and gone here instead earlier.
