Fodor's Review

Wainscoting and 1950s' canvases are the background for the mostly Catalan crowd in this homey restaurant in the lower reaches of the Gothic Quarter. Agut was founded in 1924, and its popularity has never waned—after all, hearty Catalan fare at a fantastic value is always in demand. In season (September–May), try the pato silvestre agridulce (sweet-and-sour wild duck). There's a good selection of wine, but no frills such as coffee or liqueur.

Amazing value

You could never find a place like this in the US, with such good food at such a good value. I am surprised at the other reviews and wonder about their culinary expertise (especially miss McDonald's). This restaurant is not for you people who have little appreciation for complex fare and expect a hunk of meat and french fries as a good meal. There are McDonalds and a Burger King on the Rambla for that. Having travelled the world and eaten in many impressive

star restaurants, I must say that even so Agut stands out. The local upper-middle class crowd attests to this as well.

Don't judge a book by its cover

We were enticed by the beautiful paintings, the wood paneling and the large glass windows, but this restaurant failed to deliver, even if the price was right. What killed this meal was the service. The waiters were so unhappy, and their sadness permeated the restaurant. The food was OK, but I would have prefered tapas at a place with life, good cheer and servers who liked their jobs. Ugh!
