We were not really hungry, we ordered just two tapas and beers. Patatas brava and pan y tomate are for real the best we had in town! Well presented and genuine taste. Not expensive even if the place is very old and famous.

4 Gats does very good food and has a great selection of wines. The food/drink and atmosphere of 4 Gats is great, although it is a little pricey. The history of 4 Gats is interesting and is definitely worth visiting.

22 years ago we ate here and kept salivating for our return; the only basic change was the size of the 'grande' beer which is smaller now; food and service as I expected and the history of the restaurant makes the restaurant a stop!More

The Bohemian, fin-de-siecle decor is reason enough to visit this cafe, which opened in 1897 and where artists of the day, including Picasso, hung out. The food and service are pretty good too, though we discovered that 11:30 am is too early for lunch (just...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.
