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.

Highly recommend Montiel. The owner, Marcos, is very friendly and will accommodate every guest's gastronomic request. He and his staff are very knowledgeable about the food and the wines. My husband ordered the wine pairing and was very pleased. The wine was perfectly selected to complement each dish. Either go very early or make reservations and enjoy the experience.

If you want to eat gourmet food at a reasonable price i Barcelona, Montiel is a great choice! A little hard to find but it is worth the search. And the staff coped fine that we were a little late.

We ordered the Tasting menu of 8 dishes and wine package. We asked in advance if we could replace Tuna Tartar with White fish ceviche from another menu, and it was no problem.

Food and wine harmonized perfectly throughout the meal. Not everyone in the group (we were 10) enjoyed everything, but mostly people were very happy. Personally I thought everything was wonderful. The only thing that not appealed was Beetroot textures, five different textures of beetroot. Strange ...;) The highlights were fish; red mullet with parsnip puree, the lamd shoulder and the surprise Alcohol Free Beer. And I do not like beer!!

The service was brilliant and you feel really taken care of. Staff presents dishes and wine in an understandable way. So it was a perfect evening!

This place was an absolute dream! The food was amazing and amazingly created, the service was wonderful, and the ambiance pleasant. Went for my husband's birthday and I cannot give a better review of Montiel! We also chose to go for a bottle of wine, and the waiter got our taste perfect, and what's even better, the wine cost only 15.50 euros! I would recommend Montiel to anyone going to Barcelona. Wonderful wonderful experience!

My wife and I had the gastronomique tasting menu at this wonderful little restaurant. We were greeted warmly upon arrival. Each course of the tasting menu was presented and described in a very inviting way. The meal was spectacular and unique. Each dish was a delight. Some regional wines were recommended, which were very good and spot on to our taste. This was the best meal we had in Barcelona, and we had some very good ones in other restaurants in Barca.

This is one of the best meals I ever had and I have been at serveral Michelin restaurants. We had the 11 course gastronomique tasting menue and the wine tasting menue. All courses were very delicious and the wines matched the dishes perfect.
The restaurant itself would be more atmospherous if it was more tastefull decorated. The food is highly qualified for a Michelin star or two.
