Neighborhood: Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
Description: Landmark of the city of Barcelona and Catalan modernism, it opened on June 12, 1897 in the basement of a building designed by the architect Puig i Cadafalch, on the street Montsió 3a and once was intended to bring to Barcelona the most bohemian Parisian atmosphere. Place of worship of intellectuals and artists of the time, it was the first refuge of inspiration for Pablo Picasso. In 2008, it was chosen by Woody Allen to host one of the main scenes in its film 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona', dedicated to the city. All this cultural and historic experience comes with exceptional gastronomy. All the dishes are prepared with proximity products and cooked with all the care and passion by our chef. Whitout any doubt, 4 Gats is a unique experience in Barcelona.

Found this on our walks around Ramblas and back streets of Barcelona. What a great place to eat, although not cheap, but then where is?
Waiters were attentive but not pushy, clearing plates and bringing next course without leaving too long between. They made a big fuss of the large table of young people who were obviously locals, laughing and joking with them, which made for great atmosphere.
Reminded us very much of upmarket Cellar Sa Premsa in Palma, Mallorca.

Feels like you stepped into an artist's retreat. Food is great, but undoubtedly there are other places with similar fare - come for the history.

We were treated like superstars from the moment we walked in, I went with 8 girls for a friends 30th, the waiters gave us 5 star treatment and free bubbles to celebrate ! The food was reasonably priced with good deals on set menus! The venue has links to Picasso and is referenced in the book, shadow of the wind by Carlos de Ruiz! Loved it

Nice place to visit, but only once. It is very tourist so everything is extremely overrated. It make sence to have a fixed menu for lunch (but mind there is no English translation for this) otherwise you will remain hungry. They have a very small portions from main menu. But I need to say the meal is good!
