    Picasso and Miró used to go there when they were young and they payed the owner with their paintings. So you can eat while admiring Picasso and Miró original art. It's a must if you go to Bercelona.

    Worth visiting for the unique design of the place and a glass of beer :) This place has been popular among the local artists, you might feel the special spirit there

    The food is delicious tough its for a bite) Beautiful cafe with artistic interiors, though the staff think that if you work in some legendary places, you don't have to work well.

    Building an Asset of Natural Cultural Interest. Modernist architecture with mixture of distinct styles (eg. gothic, medieval, modernist elements of Catalan Art-Nouveau). Source: Wikipedia

    Go here for lunch and enjoy the menu del dia. Not just incredible Catalan food, but also a very unique atmosphere. Best value for money restaurant I found in BCN.

    It's a must see place. All famous artists have spent their time there and sometimes they paid with their art - walls are full. Get a glass of cava and check the place

    Great place: there's a very good atmosphere and drinks are fantastic. But pay attention to prices! One decanter of sangria for 25€ it's a little bit expensive for every place!!!

    Inaugurated in 1897,Pere Romeu chose for an interior of refined artistic details. Picasso exhibitioned for the first time in 1899, and frequented by Gaudi. Well selected and inexpensive menu.

    This is a great place to break bread and wine with your friends or loved ones. Their food does not disappoint. If you want your meat medium rare make sure to emphasize it. they cook more well done.

    It's actually a $$$ restaurant. The place is really nice, nice music, and the food is extremely good but if you order just the second dish a woman!!!! leave still felling very hungry...

    Great hidden centenarian restaurant where Picasso used to hang. If you order the 3-course lunch (about E16), the drinks are unlimited (cava/vino). Friendly staff! Great atmosphere!

    If the restaurant is closed and you end up in the cafe, you can still ask for the restaurant menu. You have to ask and insist, otherwise you will end up eating the oil-saturated tapas crap.

    One of the best and over centenary resto in Barcelona. Picasso used to hang there.

    From tour guide, “quatre gats” (‘four cats’ in Catalan) is a common phrase for saying ‘only a few people’. “There were only 4 cats at the party last night.” 😂

    Used to be a nice place and I see why Picasso used to hang out here but now it's always full with every passerby...Despite the good service, it's crowded and noisy so you won't really enjoy your drink

    We had a lovely dinner of filet of beef and rabbit stew, despite low expectations - just make sure to book. Tuesdays have great live jazz.

    Mama Mia! High quality food, but there was a waitress that tried to kill my vibe 😅 horrible service she offered. Putting her elbows to my face, talking rude. The rest was amazing! Excellent food!!!

    Loved the atmosphere of this place. It's the old arty hang out, regularly frequented by Picasso. Very cheap good cañas.

    A bit pricey, but worth considering the venue's history. The gin&tonics are pretty damn huge, even though expensive

    Breakfastwise. They open very early but nobody seems to know. Anyway if you want to impress someone come here. It's an amazing place. Don't expect much from coffee though. Croissants are good instead.

    Tourist spot. Quite cute. The food is not worth it but the setting is interesting. Don't order calamari. Stick to the tapas area and not main restaurant. Iberic jamon and cheese with glass of red wine

    Excelent place. The staff and the food is great. Try the "bacalao ali oli gratinado" with a home chardonnay.

    This place is touristy but their food is pretty good for the price and space (it was a famous locale for artists).

    Basically a tourista haunt for those who no nothing of the past. A shadow of the artist who frequented this establishment one hundred years ago.

    The food is very interesting and tasty, but the attitude is awful. It seems like they don't welcome Asian people and try their best to humiliate us.

    The environment is nice, kind of old rich style, the dessert is just ok. The price is a bit expensive cuz of Picasso!

    A place with not a single catalan person should tell you something... The only enthusiastic one was the piano player, who made "dont cry for me argentinia" a Interpretation of Arnold Schönberg.

    Try duck with lobster and drink sangria while listening to live jazz after an exhausting day, you'll have nothing after. :)

    The place is authentic well-known for its connection with Picasso. Menu seams quite original and mind-blowing, though in fact nothing special. We ordered 3 different deserts and we're not impressed(

    Has a reputation as a tourist trap but I've been here several times and always like it. Try the padron peppers...more of a kick than most.
  • Tolga B.heart icon on user image
    Onion soup was ok, lobster salad had nearly no lobster in it. The oven cooked fish tasted like microwaved. Pretty steep prices. Oh and there is also "out of tune" piano music. Enjoy.

    What a tourist trap! The food is great but very overpriced. There is a charge in the bill that should not be included. Watch out for it. I live in Spain and I have never seen it anywhere.

    - Catalan- near cathedral- open late and every day- live piano- mix between tourists & locals- big, not hard to get a table- neither too expensive nor cheap

    Patronized mostly by tourists, but that doesn't make it a tourist trap! The service was attentive but unobtrusive, the food was flavorful without being over-seasoned. The host/owner is a treat, too!
