These are the 5 reasons why -for many- we offer the best Tapas Gourmet of Barcelona in the Gothic Quarter
1) tapas made with a selection of high quality ingredients
One of the requirements of a genuine Tapa Gourmet is that this made with high quality ingredients . In Gilda Tapas we will fulfil this to the letter. Both in our famous tapas, as in any of the dishes and desserts coming out of our kitchen, we only use carefully selected quality products.
The best Mediterranean bluefin tuna, selected meats from New Zealand and Belgium, Mussels from Galicia, fruits and vegetables from the fresh market, cheese from Flanders, Organic Duck, Free range Chicken... just glancing at Gilda's menu it's easy to realize the care and effort we make to use only high quality products. This daily work is key to make our Tapas and dishes unique and exquisite .
2) experience and creativity to create amazing Tapas
Creativity and strong personality is one of the main values Gilda : Being a different restaurant.
To achieve this, when designing our Tapas, we apply large doses of imagination, professionalism and love to get really rich and surprising Tapas offering for its taste, aroma, texture and nice presentation on the plate.
In Barcelona's Gothic district, there is a wide range of tapas restaurants and nice places for dinner. Our success is based precisely on the fact that we feature tapas that differ from the rest by their originality, quality and the gourmet touch that has made Gilda Tapas so much appreciated among its customers.
Good food, good service, good atmosphere. What more could you want? Gilda is a small restaurant, intimate touch and in the treatment and attention to detail make the difference. The menu is varied but consistent: the various dishes I've tried, they all deserve top marks. Belgian cuisine, creative and intelligent - suitable for curious !!
3) The Tapas are eye popping
One eats with the eyes. Wether tapas or any other dish; enjoy the mouth-watering view from the moment the waiter deposits your order on the table.
At Gilda we take care of all elements which impacts the presentation of our Tapas : nice cutlery and plates, aesthetic display of the food, combination of colors, appealing appearance of the fresh ingredients we work with. All this makes that our Tapas are a food lovers' pleasure even before you actually taste them in your mouth.
From the first moment we walked in , Michael gave us a warm welcome and Daniel escorted us to the table with a unique attention, it's been quite a while since I experienced such a warm and personal service.
Wonderful dishes, with care to detail. I recommend the stew with Leffe beer, the tataki, the Belgian beef tenderloin, the prawns and the chicken with curry and ginger ice cream. If you are a wine lover like me, I also recommend you to see the wine list with selected small wine producers from all parts of Spain, all with a good price quality relation.
I'll definitely come back !
4) tapas menu which fuses at it's best Mediterranean and Belgian cuisine
With our Tapas Gourmet , we offer an open, creative and cosmopolitan kitchen, inspired from our Mediterranean and Belgian origin and basically offers the best of both culinary cultures, without sacrificing elements and recipes from other parts of the world we live in.
In our choice for fusion cuisine we always use talent and common sense. Even when we feature famous and traditional recipes, it will always carry our Gilda touch.
I loved the food and atmosphere. Light is very cosy, the food varied and exquisite. I have had the chance to try Belgian food, and at the same time international dishes. The service is very good thanks to the very dynamic and friendly staff. I recommend it and I will come back every next visit to Barcelona. They also have very good Belgian beers which are not easy to find. It is highly recommended for dinner or just for drinks as the bar area is perfectly separated from the restaurant lounge.
5) Tapas are enjoyed better in a nice and welcoming place
Our place, with its indirect lighting and intimate decor, is a space to relax and enjoy the best Tapas . Gilda features two ambients, the bar area for a more festive and informal tapas experience, and more quiet, the restaurant area which fits both romantic dining as small dinner parties.
We like our customers to feel at ease from the first moment they enter and that they feel welcomed with a discrete and polite attention under all circumstances.
From experience, we feel that a friendly atmosphere in a restaurant can be achieved by the sum of several factors (ambiental care, good treatment, professionalism, commitment, ...). And we also know that the good atmosphere adds value to our Tapas and makes our guests eager to repeat the experience and recommend us to their friends.
