Funky place weirdly decorated with a disc jockey operating a gramophone. Oh, and they serve food, too. It was very good, although not what I would consider gourmet. Unlike what was mentioned in another review, the night we went we had no problem being seated...More

There are so many excellent restaurants in BCN that I think you may want to try another one. If you want to experience the decor, etc. stop in for a coffee and churros.

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.
