An excellent restaurant serving exceptional food. Inside, a bar area and beyond, a restaurant on two levels. The service is impeccable.

Recommended by my wife's father who had a good birthday meal here many years ago. If you can, try to get a table in the first, smaller, room which has better ambiance than the larger dining hall further inside. We were early for lunch, having been up since 4am to catch the flight to Barcelona, and got a table along... More

This restaurant is a Barcelona landmark, site where artists and writers would congregate. The atmosphere is very nice and interesting; the service and food not so much. Dinner for 4 was 140 euros and that included 3 drinks. We were there at 7:30, early for dinner but were going to a show. Although few people were there, it took quite... More

If it was good enough for Picasso, it's good enough for you! Yes, a little touristy, but great turn of the century vibe and the gin and tonics are definitely not a distraction. Food is good too and priced reasonably. Great place to sit for a bit while and soak in the historical ambiance walking the Barri Gotic.

4 Gats is a really busy place. Some say one should book a table to make sure he find a place. We were lucky to come just before the lunch time in Barcelona (14:00) and find easily a nice table. Food is good, service is quick and the atmosphere is cosy. They have 3 course menus every day for 19€... More

We had a nice enough meal in the evening. A live guitarist was playing, which added to the overall atmosphere. The wrong entrée was brought to us, the staff did offer to bring the correct one, but we did not want to wait. I am certain you could find better values, but as long as you realize you are going...

We had booked this restaurant several days in advance as it had been recommended by friends for our trip to Barcelona. The building and atmosphere are lovely, and the restaurant is easy to find. We had an early evening booking. There were plenty of tables available when we arrived so we were very surprised and disappointed to be initially shown... More

If a restaurant is famous for someone who visited it and not the food, some warning bells chime. But as most other tourists this might be the only time you will be in Barcelona so why not? Anyway, everyone in the restaurant who has not yet been served their main course looks happy and excited. I have to admit here... 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.
