Enjoy the good life in El Gotico!
The first of five restaurants by Sensi, the tables of this charming locale in the Gothic Quarter are some of the most sought-after anywhere in Barcelona.
Their motto is come, bebe, la vida es breve (“eat, drink, life is short!”), and Sensi Tapas is certainly a place where people live well.
A menu of classic Spanish tapas like padron peppers, patatas bravas and Iberian hams, are complemented by several more daring options from the “chef’s suggestions” and Sensi’s selection of Oriental tapas. So don’t be surprised when you see the likes of melted burrata with aubergines confit, truffled mushroom duxelle and olives crumble on the menu, nor grilled scallops, peas, prawns reduction and truffled cauliflower mousse… nor roasted pork ribs, teriyaki sauce and honey, apple and ginger purée.
The wine list is also excellent, and includes wines by La Mundial Barcelona, a local brand acquired by the Sensi group, which produces handcrafted wines made from 100% naturally grown grapes from the Penedès region.
Given the restaurant’s popularity, it’s best to reserve ahead of time via their website (see links on the right).
