From the same team that brought Barcelona the mouthwateringly innovative Belgious ice cream parlour and creperie, comes this Mediterranean restaurant in the heart of the Gothic district. Here at Gilda traditional Catalan, Spanish and French cuisine is given a Belgian twist so that, for example, your beef tenderloin with Bearnaise sauce comes with a side order of Belgian-style fries, and amongst the plates of Iberian ham and Catalan pan amb tomaquet tapas you'll find Flemish beefstew made with Leffe beer. (Hint: you can also order Leffe and Stella Artois behind the bar!). Best of all though is Gilda's use of its sister venue's signature ice creams in the menu. Try the crispy grilled salmon with wasabi ice cream to see what we mean! An intimate interior, with low tables, candlelight and rich red and black tones make this the perfect place for impressing a special senor(ita)...
Dropped by for some really sensational tapas the other night. Tried the famous shrimps with curry ice cream which is served with pesto and dark leaves and also a lovely cerviche tapas with crispy wafers. And the pa amb tomaquet would make any Catalan proud. All enjoyed with a nice red wine from Madrid. Looking forward to going back and trying the cocktails.

Intimate with great food and great service we selected this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and it turned out to be the perfect choice. All of the dishes we tried were superb - the ones that stick i n the memory are the beef stew (I believe it was a Belgian specialty) and the flavoured ice creams.
