We all loved our visit/meal in the restaurant. For two out of four of us it was a return, because of previous excellent experiences. Everything: décor, historic ambiance, food, patience of the waiter and the interaction with him made the visit perfect.

Recommended by a very sharp young man who spent a few hours with us. We were very happy with the results, the service, food and ambience of the restaurant was worth the price.

Came here on thanksgiving with my friend while on vacation. Service was lovely and dinner was equally as good. During dinner there was a singing duo. Made the evening very special, especially for two Americans away during the holiday. I had the lamb and my friend the beef. The carrot cake for dessert was delicious. The ambience and decor of...

Great food, lovely setting but the star just try and sell sell sell. This place has a great atmosphere in a very traditional setting. The food was great but the staff just continuously try and sell extras too you to the point of embarrassment. It spoils the whole experience

Interior and history of the place are the only worth things to experience here. Too expensive, food quality is low.

We escaped the heat and many overpriced alternatives to have a lovely lunch in 4 Gats. A sense of history and some very famous past patrons assure the restaurant has both style and substance. Service was warm and attentive. Would love to lunch here again soon.

We had mussels and wine which were excellent and well-priced. I loved the art and tiles on the walls! Even the bathroom was decorated with tiles! The waiters were very attentive, nice and not obtrusive.

We wanted to dine in a historic restaurant in the gothic section of Barcelona. As an added plus, this was a hangout of Picasso, Dali, Miro, as well as Gaudi. The food and atmosphere was perfect. Only a few blocks from the Palau De La Musica. One of the numerous hidden treasures of my favorite city..

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.
