When you come to Santa Gula it feels like stepping into somebody’s Eat With-event. The place is small, one wall is covered with shelves filled with glasses and used as a dry storage, there are a few small tables and it all makes it feel like someone’s apartment. They also have a terrace outside on the little plaza next to the restaurant.
The menu is always interesting and fresh, but my curiosity is sparked with the seasonal dishes. There is nothing like seasonal food that’s been done well. I still remember the spring-time morels with nostalgia…
The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I like the fact that the restaurant is in Gracia and not very close to anything in particular, otherwise it would probably be very challenging to get a table. Even so, you need to book in advance.
IN A NUTSHELL
Atmosphere: Cosy, even romantic. It’s small and the decoration is really nice.
Recommended: Everything we’ve had has been delicious, but particularly recommendable is the seasonal dishes. And the desserts, save lots of room for that.
Specifics: The menu is really fresh, you won’t find the usual jamón iberico and croquetas. It’s inspiring, new and is successful in maintaining it this way.
Reservations: Usually necessary.
