Description: Welcome to Gilda Tapas y Platos! 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).

Stopped in here at around 8 on a Friday and were lucky to get a table for 2. Food was superb, service fantastic and the selection of drinks excellent. We had vol au vent and camembert with patatas bravas to start and stew and the spicey chicken for mains. Couldn't speak highly enough about all of it.

Dear guest,

Indeed, after just one year of operation it is getting more busy and even at 8pm it can be full already, we will try to add some tables in the months to come. I am glad you liked our Catalan style vol-au-vent ...and more guests commented that our bravas are the best they've had during their stay in Spain. Your comment is an additional motivation for the team to keep the standard up !

Best Regards

Michel

I really liked this little place, the menu looked interesting so we booked a table and ate a few hours later. I had the mussels to start which were beyond yummy! I then had the beef stew for main course which was lovely! Great food, and I would eat here again. The man and woman running the place, were lovely and friendly, it had a real homely feel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for visiting us and sharing your opinion with other users here. Indeed the mussels are done the Belgian way but we source them from Galicia (Spain). Again, the beef stew proves to be a real hit, we cook it carefully and it comes with our Belgian fries.

Best Regards,

Michel

We found the place on the web. They have Belgian food, and very good tapas. Kinda dark place, small, maybe for 50 people maximum. The waiter helped me to choose a veggie dish; he was so lovely that he brought me some fruit after the meal. The wine was good as well; they had cocktails and some other drinks. Not a very long list on the menu, but absolutely good quality!

Dear Guest,

A pleasure to read your positive comments. I do agree on the lightning remark: we are working on it and are planning some design and lightning improvements in the next few months. The capacity is limited to about 34 persons and by re arranging the tables we hope to increase to 44. We don't want more as our adagio is "small is beautiful" ;-)

Best Regards

Michel

After fabulous tapas at Sensi a few doors down my daughter was unwell, so brownie points were on offer here.....and I racked them up big time!

Nice intimate setting and attentive service. Conventional international style menu with local flavours.

The tuna was excellent as was the duck - remember to order sides with the duck though!

Another nice rioja, a stroll down Calle Ample afterwards.... and you can guess the rest.

Well worth the effort.

They periodically change their main courses. A nice mixture between Spanish and Belgian cuisine.
