Beautiful fresh food, artfully presented and excellent service. The Snapper was catch of the day and very tasty, cooked with a light wine sauce. My wife had the Beef Cheeks which was so tender it almost fell apart at the touch of a knife. All...the meals served to adjacent tables seemed to be just as eye catching as ours and very much enjoyed. The prices are mid-range but value for money given the quality of food, service and decor. The restaurant couldn't be better placed in the heart of El Born, the trendiest district. Enjoy a walk after the meal around the local cafes and bars. We are in Barcelona for a few more weeks so I'm sure we'll be back many times.More

Christmas Eve was a delight. Having just landed, we were a bit nervous about the combination of jet lag, a holiday night in a foreign city, and an unknown restaurant. Well, it was an extraordinary night - though the tab for the set menu was...72 euros (without wine), the meal was magical and one we will long remember. The cannoli appetizer was especially scrumptious!More

A fabulous dinner for two in Barcelona. My husband and I both had the tasting menu and we enjoyed every course. The accompanying flight of wines were beautifully chosen. Our two favourite courses were the tuna starter and the duck ravioli. We would come back...just for those two courses alone. The restaurant was very considerate at adjusting the menu for dietary requirements (I am currently pregnant and there are some things that I cannot eat). Would happily return next time we are in Barcelona.More

If you are looking for flavorful dishes with excellent vine pairing Montiel is the restaurant you should visit. We recommend the tasting menu with vine pairing as the combination of food and the chosen beverage for each dish is superb. This was our fifth or...sixth visit since 2010 and we will be back next time we visit Barcelona.More

What a thorough treat this turned out to be. An excellent two and half hours being served dish after delicious dish with great wine to accompany each. The final dish was the ultimate; passion fruit that tasted, well, like delicious bacon! Really well done to...all there.More

Eleven of us dined together at Montiel. It was a delightful experience with exceptional flavors. I enjoyed every course with exception of the dessert course. The little white cookies tasted like baking soda to me.

My wife and I dined here for our last night in Barcelona which happened to be a Sunday. I came across the restaurant whilst trying to find the best places open on Sunday the day before. I will admit I tried to book a couple...other places first which were already booked solid - so glad we ended up here! During our three week Europe adventure we made advance reservations at a three star Michelin restaurant in Rome as well as a one star Michelin restaurant in Florence. I noticed a Michelin sticker on the window as we arrived for our reservation which was a pleasant surprise - I’m unsure if they are still rated but our meal and wine were fantastic and up there quality wise. We had the cheese tasting plate as an app, wife had the ravioli as the vegetarian option while I had the traditional ravioli which had foie on top with duck filling. Both were exceptional. We shared two bottles of a red wine blend from Mallorca which was also some of the best wine on our trip. Service was good. Only complaint would have been the extremely loud group of 6-8 biotech/pharma convention women at the table next to us, yelling over one another the entire night. Absent of that the meal was excellent and would absolutely return / recommend!More

Great food, great wine, great time! The food was tasty, so delicious. We ordered 4 different entrees and shared. Very close to the Picasso Museum.

I have been to Restaurant Montiel 2 times now, and both times they deliver an absolutely perfect restaurant experience every time. The service is very warmfull and precise. The food is an amazing variation of local Spanish ingredients which in the tasting menu is put...together in such an amazing way. The wine is very local and tasteful and matches the food combination perfectly. You get a lot of value for your money, absolutely. The restaurant is very small, quite and cosy, which makes it perfect to visit with family, friends or business. I'm definitely gonna visit this restaurant again!More

We enjoyed our first meal here so much that we returned with our friends another night. The food is truly delicious and beautifully presented. The service is excellent.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
