If this is the restaurant and bar, see what I said about it before. If it is not, I do not know what you are asking about.

Els Quatre Gats is one of the most famous bars/restaurants in all of BCN. It is on the main floor of Casa Martí, which was designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch ( One of the main founding architects for the modern BCN ). They serve typical Catalan food in the dinning area and Catalan and Spanish tapas and appetizers in the bar area. It is quaint and filled with ambiance. They have art hanging on every wall, including the bathroom, ranging from Casa to Rusiñol, and of course Pablo Picasso ( who had art shows at this location ). It was a hang out for those in the forefront of "Modernisme" that ran rampant in Catalonia in the late 19th century.

The relation between price and quality is just. The real reason to dine or visit here is for the sake of being in a place that was frequented by revered artists.

The chicken pate in the bar is a must! AND the classic dishes in the restaurant never fail. Finish with a "crema catalana," typical creme brule of Catalonia.

Hard to find, worth the search. Metro Urquinaona

Great place, not to be missed on a trip to Barcelona. History, style and medditerranean tastes to remember. Lunch menu for those on a budget. We ended up visiting the place every single day of our stay to try something different.
Reccomended!!!!

The best part of Els Quatre Gats is the atmosphere and soaking in the experience of dining where so many famous people have done before. If you are looking for 5 star cuisine and snobby service, this is NOT the place for you! The food has always been good (consistent) and the service is good considering how busy it gets. The boisterous atmosphere and the piano player make the dining experience even better!

I have dined in many restaurants in Barcelona and I ALWAYS look forward to taking friends to Els Quatre Gats!
