Famous old restaurant previously frequented by artists. Now it is really a tourist attraction. Staff are disinterested,verging on rude. Food was poor to say the least with cold food and some of the stated ingredients missing. When we mentioned this to the manager it was clear that we were not the first to complain and he certainly did not care.... More

We went here to celebrate my husband's birthday with our teenage children and another family. We felt that the food was overpriced and disappointing. Two of the main course meals turned up after the rest of us had finished eating, and so we sent them back. We then had to argue to get these removed from our bill. Would not... More

We had a great light lunch in 4 Gats, with lovely wine just before our Picasso walking tour. It was great to be eating in the place where Picasso first exhibited. The food was beautifully presented and tasty and the service attentive and cheerful.

Lots of history here and good food. If your in Barcelona it's worth trying. Prices are reasonable and service old school with the waiters in white jackets.

Lovely 6 course meal at very reasonable price for Valentines. The food was creative but not overly so ... sometimes "taste" menus leave me hungry. This one filled us both up. Thank you for a wonderful night out.

What a fabulous restaurant!! I visited this restaurant with my team and we all found it to be great. Food and wine were reasonably priced. Ambience was good. Only very slight issue is that the noise level can get quite high if the restaurant is half full. The staff were excellent and very helpful. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant on both... More

This was a recommended visit, however the food was rather flavourless and barely warm. Happy to pay this price for a good meal but this was not a good meal. Would not recommend.

In short, the food served was not as described on the menu. Our "Galician Scallops with ham and hazelnut picador" were simple four small scallops served on their own. When we complained, the dish was represented, this time COLD, with a shaving on ham but still no sauce! For my main course I chose "Roast suckling pig from Sergovia with... More

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.
