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.

“Amazing Gastronomic Delight”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We went to the restaurant on my partners birthday it was a revelation. They offer a choice of two menus we chose the 11 course menu, each of the "taster" courses was beautifully presented and explained in detail by the staff when it was served' most of the food was local and organic. A choice of wines to complement each dish was offered.
The Restaurant is in a little narrow street in the Born area of Barcelona and is in a pedestrian area. If travelling by taxi you are dropped of about 200 mts away and it is very easy to miss.
I booked the table on the internet from the UK and this is necessary. I have eaten in many restaurants in many countries the Montiel is among the very best

“Very accomodating for different dietary restrictions”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

I have eaten at several amazing restaurants. This one is just below some of the best. I am vegetarian and my partner is gluten free. I emailed them ahead of time about our diets, and they were more than willing to design a menu around them.

But on top of that, the food was creative, delicious, and well-presented. They need to up the air conditioning level, as it got pretty warm.

Most excellent service. People who work here are dedicated to their art of serving fabulous dishes and wine and making sure you enjoy the experience. Tasting dishes were absolutely excellent. The best meal I have ever had - tastes were sublime and well presented. Wine was delicious. Interesting and interested staff made it a most memorable experience - Go here if you can.

A couple of friends recommended the 7 course meal at this place and said they would pay for our food if we didn't love the place. Well, we loved it! The restaurant owner had a genuine love for good cuisine. The food was very special and original, I hadn't had eny of the courses before. Good beer and local wine. I really recommend this place if you want an all nigth food adventure whith your friends or as a couple!

“a true delight”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

From atmosphere, to food, to service... this was a special experience. The pacing was perfect. The wine-pairing was perfect. And every bite was a revelation. We'd dined at several other very highly rated restaurants (which were quite disappointing) before finding ourselves in Montiel. This blew everything else away. Truly. Nothing compared. Special thank you to Marcos and the lovely lady who were our wonderful *guides* through this amazing tasting. And we bow to those in the kitchen whose creations we will long remember.
