Respond to Review of CLOSED: Illa de Gracia
by kyvegan

Review: This restaurant was a bit tricky to find (there is a similarly named street a few blocks away with no connection to this one) but well worth it! I had a bit of trouble expressing my dietary needs (vegan) to the waitress (my fault: I don't speak Spanish or Catalan) but after much patience on her part I wound up with a tasty (but simple)seitan dish. When desert time rolled around, she brought out a well worn, no-frills, computer print out menu that was in English and had all of the vegan dishes marked as well as dishes that could be made vegan via substitution. I definitely recommend asking for this upfront as it saves a lot of time. Portions were small-ish but sufficiently filling. Vegan deserts included a number of sorbets and compotes. Definitely worth a stop, but I wouldn't put this on my list of Barcelona musts if your time there is limited. Try Vegetalia or Amaltea instead! (side note: my friend had the veggie burger but it turned out to just be a patty on a plate with a couple of vegetables, not the hearty bun-and-fixings that she'd anticipated. maybe this is a naive american mistake, but be aware that this is no-frills dining)
