Great dinner and service. Ask for Romeo. It's historical - the menu was designed by Picasso and it was a famous meeting place for artists - you can see the original menu in the Picasso museum in Barcelona. The service and food were great. We...More

We had three tapas, octopus, mussels, lobster noodle. All pretty good. Monjito is also good. The more casual sitting is in the front. The more inside is more formal food.

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.
