Café Godot opened a few months ago in the heart of Gràcia, next to the emblematic Plaça de la Vila. Café Godot is a cozy bistro with a simple but effective gastronomic offer based on quality good raw materials. In addition, the friendly service, good atmosphere, and a remarkable interior decoration make it a must if you live or drop by the neighborhood.

This new gastronomic experience comes from the creators of the legendary Japanese restaurant Kibuka, the result of a comprehensive renovation of the premises. The space is broken down into different areas. Upon entering, there is a large living room that resembles a New York loft with small tables and a large one by the window to share with other guests. In the back there is the bar and a garden that is for the moment not for use (ask the neighbors). Inside, on the right, there is another room, smaller, elongated and intimate, consisting of two large tables and a play area for children. The interior details such as stone walls, space allocation and the bar are the work of Meta-Studio; and the general signage and branding are all the work of Raquel Quevedo. This helps the exceptionally-located Café Godot to become a place with a good atmosphere, a must visit.

But not everything is about image here. The dining experience, the value for money and the flexibility of open hours are the major points to consider. At a culinary level, it offers a simple but original menu featuring delicious salads and entrees, pastas dishes, meat or fish dishes, sandwiches and burgers. In the mornings they serve breakfast and a set lunch menu for ?12 that is really worth it. On weekends they serve brunch and cocktails at night. The kitchen doesn’t so you can always count on them if you’re hungry. Among their popular dishes we recommend fried calamari with wasabi mayonnaise, cod confit, roast beef sandwich, homemade pumpkin ravioli or any of the varieties with free-range eggs at brunch.

An average meal is about ?20-25 per person.
