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.

A group of 4 of us ate here for my partner’s 30th Birthday on Sunday night and it was one of the best meals we’ve ever eaten! We had the gastronomique tasting menu and every single course was absolutely fantastic (I don’t think it has a Michelin star, but it definitely should do), each dish was beautifully presented and had so much flavour. It was really good value for money too, for the quality of food that you get. The atmosphere was really relaxed – not stuffy or pretentious at all, as you would probably experience if the same restaurant was in London. The staff were absolutely lovely, really friendly and helpful. I cannot recommend this place more highly – just go!

Let me start by saying that my wife and I are "foodies" and love to scope out the top restaurants on our travels. That said, several of Barcelona's supposed finest are closed on Sunday and Monday, so we asked the concierge at our hotel, The W, for his recommendation for a Monday night. Montiel Restaurante, located in the "old city" section of Barcelona, proved to be one of our finest meals...anywhere! A tiny gem serving the freshest of ingredients--fish literally was delivered in wooden crates right thru the front door while we sat, and later wound up on our plates! The restaurant presents a choice of two different tasting menus, no a la carte. Every course, fully explained by our attentive, charming waiter/owner Marco, was a taste sensation! Very reasonably priced selection of wines (our 2009 Clos Martinet was drinking beautifully), though you can opt for the wine pairing as well. Marco even accompanied us around the corner and up the block to a point where we could find a cab--how's that for service?! Montiel is a true find, don't miss it! D. Slater, New City, NY

We travelled round Spain in June 2013 starting in Barcelona. We have visiting Barcelona a few times so have our favourite places to go to but also try out new places. We had the taster menu and wine pairing. I'd recommend having the wine pairing. The waiter was very friendly and explained each dish and wine. All the wines were from local vineyards. As we had the taster menu and wine pairing it did end up being quite pricey but worth it. Would go back if we go to Barcelona in the future.

I would like to write a better review for this restaurant because the food was OK, everyone was super nice and we were not the easiest table. Unfortunately we had a group of picky eaters and a set menu may not have been the best choice. That being said it took 3 1/2 hours to eat dinner, so no matter what the menu we would have been frustrated. At times there were 30-40 minutes between courses, not acceptable, even in Spain. Really a lovely place, but go on a weekday when it is less busy so the service is better.
