Respond to Review of Gopal

Review: Gopal is an absolute must-visit for vegans in Barcelona (and not just vegans - my omni boyfriend loved it too!). I went there on my first day, lured by the reviews, and it was so good that we ended up going there every day of our holiday. There are so many things to recommend about this place. First, the staff are really friendly and helpful. Second, there is a decent choice of main courses, from bocadillos (sandwiches Spanish-style, delicious and really filling) and a variety of burgers to a daily special. Third, it is fantastic value for money - a very satisfying main course and dessert plus a drink will leave you with change from 10 euros, and you won't need to eat again all day! Finally, and most importantly, their desserts are out of this world - so much that they get their own review! Mmmmm cake. Oh, to be back in Barcelona! As a huge fan of cake who has made a lot of cakes in my time as well as sampled vegan cake wherever I go, I would rate this cake as up there with the best I have ever tasted - rivalling Vegan Treats in New York (and that is really saying something!). They do the most beautiful layer cakes with amazing cream fillings, biscotti, cupcakes, cheesecakes, cookies, brownies - if you have a sweet tooth, you will never want to leave this place. And because everything is 100% vegan, you can order with confidence (just as well, as it tastes so good that you would otherwise worry that they had given you the non-vegan one by accident!). The cakes seemed to vary daily, but a staple was the vanilla and strawberry cake - try it, you really won't be disappointed. I'm normally a total sucker for chocolate cake, but I never even tried the chocolate cake here because there were so many other interesting combinations to choose from (raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake; layer cake with coffee biscotti, praline cream and chocolate fudge - I'd better stop writing before I keel over, oh boy...). Last but not least, if you are lucky enough to come at the right time (after 4pm in our experience), there is a waitress who speaks amazing English and who is really really nice. She explained what all the different things meant (although there is also a helpful English menu), and was happy to customise sandwiches for us. In short - we loved this place, go check it out!
