Description: Welcome to Gilda by Belgious! Dedicated to the fading art of good service and fine, flavorful food at a good price, we seek out the freshest, quality ingredients to ensure your experience is of the highest calibre from beginning (our delectable gourmet tapas) to end (our mouth watering house-made deserts)! Since we are part of Belgious, don't be surprised to discover that some of our dishes come with wasabi, ginger, curry or even cannabis ice-cream ! Our kitchen opens every evening from 18:30 till midnight (even later during weekends), meaning you can even walk in at 23:45 and still enjoy dinner with us. If you would like to try our gastronomy at noon, we do open the restaurant -prior reservation- for private groups from 14 to 38 guests (Ideal for celebrations or company related luncheons).

“First class Tapas with the occassional twist”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a wonderful evening at this restaurant which compliments wonderful Tapas with first class service.

Every dish we had was enjoyable and it's not every day you can enjoy Shrimp with Curry Flavour ice cream which as strange as it sounds was delicious.

Don't let the above put you off as most of the Tapas on offer is traditional and done very well.

The restaurant lacks pretentiousness which allows for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

We would definitely return and would recommend booking.

“Yummy dinner”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We ate here with our almost 2 year old daughter so didn't try anything too exotic, but everything we had was delicious. To start, ordered the fresh pea soup with shrimp ice cream...yum! The meatballs were a hit with our daughter, and I kind of wish she left me a bite! For mains had the chicken, which I never usually order in a restaurant, but had read in an earlier review was worth getting, and they were right. Perfectly cooked with some tasty accompaniments. The Belgians have it right serving ice cream (this time ginger) with mains! My hubby had the duck, which was rich and super tasty. All that plus a glass of cava and a mojito was 52 Euro plus tip. Pretty reasonable for this area. Took away a star for having to wait a bit long between courses, but we may have been more aware of that eating with a young child! Highly recommend !

“Everything was good, nothing was great”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We had a few different tapas, some belgian beer and desserts. Everything was just fine, but nothing really impressed us. The place is nice though a bit chilly in April, bring a sweater. Good, friendly service, the waiter spoke good English, Spanish, French and Flamish, and I think German too.

Dear guest,
Thank you for sharing your comments with us. I don't know which day you visited us, but it is true that it has been cold this week. Probably you came in early since we use to put the heating the first hour, after which it usually is more than warm enough. Then again it's a personal feeling and you could have asked the waiter about the temperature. By limiting yourself to a few spanish tapas, you missed out the real interesting creative cuisine featured in our menu list, or how would you explain that one family of four came back 3 times this week ? ;-)
Regards
Michel

“So delicious!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Just ate at this restaurant where other diners were returning for their third time in a week . I had a chicken dish with Green Thai curry sauce and ginger ice cream which was sublime and my partner had the steak and frites - wonderful tender steak and crisp fluffy chips . We both had the chocolate mousse for dessert made with fragrant African cocoa - just as richly chocolatey as the owner described to us ! We asked for Sangria , which wasn't on the menu, and because we were early and they weren't too busy they made some up for us . A really memorable meal . We will join the queue for a rerun ! Thank- you so much. Even better it's just 3 mins walk from our apartment .

Dear guest,
Thank you for sharing your comments about Gilda with other tripadvisor users. Indeed it has been busy this week and several guests repeated -as you mention- up to 3 times during the same week. This is a sign that we definitely are on the right track, offering a nice and affordable dinner experience in the Gothic district of Barcelona.
Best Regards,
Michel
