We reserved this restaurant during the Restaurant Week so we had a special low cost menu. The dishes are presented in style and flavors were really good. The service was fast and the staff was nice.

We had read about this restaurant in a number of articles and the way it fuses Spanish food with eastern flavours.

Gelonch is a fantastic restaurant with a really cool vibe. We ate outside on the street on a balmy evening and enjoyed the degustation. This gave us the opportunity to try things that we would not have perhaps ordinarily ordered. The food is a wonderful fusion of modern Asian and Spanish. Some really unique pairings of contrasting food that was... More

Each course on the short tasting menu was unique and flavorful. The restaurant has a nice wine list and the markup seemed reasonable. Our wine choice required decanting, which our server should have known. Other than that, the rest of her service was impeccable: informative, available and well-timed. We were the only patrons for about an hour dining mid-week until... More

Found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and since it was just up from the apartment we gave it a try. Yum. We did the short tasting menu. Not a single miss on the menu. Flavours were amazing and complimented each other on each dish. The butter fish and the pork and octopus dishes were particularly outstanding. The recommended catalin white wine... More

My partner and I had a fantastic tasting menu experience. Every course was delicious and satisfying. The waitress recommended a tasty cava and a nice Chardonnay to go along with the 10 course tasting menu. The pumpkin soup with red curry was out of this world. The food is clever, playful, and appetizing.

really nothing special. very small portions and slow service so the 5 course menu feels like a walk in the desert with a few oasis. small but also understaffed, poor table setup. we required a vegeterian menu and were served a dish with something suspect. when asked if it was meat, we were replied "well no, it's chicken". offered another...

As a group we eat out a lot and had read reviews of this restaurant. Go for the longer tasting menu the portions you are eating are very light. We all thought the food was creative , excellent fusion cuisine. The waitress was extremely attentive . We were very impressed with the wine list and the mark up was very... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
