We went here as I had been missing Indian food over the last few months in Spain, and as a vegetarian this seemed an obvious choice. The food was okay, but was very simple and not particularly flavoursome. Service was slow

I was referred by one of the Indian shopkeeper in Barcelona to Govinda for Indian food. The food quality was not even above average. Only name is Indian but preparations are Spanish. They are trying to do fusion instead of desi food. You can visit...More

Not tasty, just have to see the waiter and chef... Unfriendly as well as the food, which was expensive and with no taste. Waste of time and money as paying 6€ for 2 samosas is like...a bit too much

As an Indian, I can say that this is the worst Indian restaurant of Barcelona. I went for a weekend menu. The food was not enough and horrible.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
