How to make reservations at GRESCA BARCELONA

hello chowhounds!
Does anyone know how I can make reservations at GRESCA as their website is not working, there is no email, nothing...

    I just called Gresca tonight and got a table for tomorrow (Sat) for the tasting menu (50 euros). They open at 20h30. The lady who picked up spoke excellent English. Hisop and Cinq Sentis were booked up so I should have thought of making reservations at those places much earlier! Too bad Gresca wasn't smarter in developing their Website and taking online reservations like all the other restaurants.

      Hi Yesi!
      Their website is always like that. Just a name, address, phone number. Simple, like them. Just ask your B&B to call for you.

        I searched all over for an email and found nothing--which deterred me from reserving there, as I didn't want to try and call from the US. (Staying in an apartment, we had no concierge etc.)

          Too bad, Jinx. It's a good place and very reasonably-priced. Imagine a tasting menu for 50+Euros. No worries, though! I know you had lots of other delicious meals.

          It's a small restaurant and they will confirm (and double-confirm) your reservation. They DO speak English. And I've seen them turn away people without a reservation, even when the restaurant was nearly empty (just my son and me). Of course, it filled up within 30 minutes.

            Well instead we chose Hisop--also a tasting menu for 48 Euros, which was excellent--and they had an email address :) If we hadn't been going during such a busy period (Easter week) I would have risked calling when we got to Spain, but didn't want to cut it that close. Maybe next time.

            They speak excellent English. Call just before opening times (lunch or dinner) and, if you want the tasting menu, order it when you make the reservation. Have a contact phone # available - or if you don't have one, promise to call them a day or two ahead to confirm.
