Els Quatre Gats

Catalan in La Rambla & Barri Gòtic

Once the lair of Barcelona's Modernista artists, Els Quatre Gats is a stunning example of the movement, inside and out, with its colourful tiles, geometric brickwork and wooden fittings. The restaurant is not quite as thrilling as its setting, but you can just have a coffee and a croissant in the cafe (open from 9am to 1am) at the front.
