Friendly enough staff but not the best food

Went here on the first night for one of the deals - meat and wine offer for two. This was pretty good value and quite tasty (think of barbecue meat. However the beer was quite pricey and there seem to add on another 10% as IVA which in some restauarants is included within the price stated on the... read more

to cut a long story short, choose the couple seafood platter for 55€ - it comes with a fine bottle of wine and is spectacular and can feed 3-4 people easy, we enjoyed it a lot

Typical tourist restaurant with competitive prices. Personnel seems good in attracting tourists but lacks good cooking. One of the many restaurant's but its worth looking for something better.

Great staff and food at reasonable prices. Got a grilled chicken meal for €7.50! Bargain! Intimate setting for couples and only bad note is the menus are very vague but the waiters are always happy to advise further.

The worst dinner we have ever had in Barcelona. The waiter recommended us grilled meat platter and we ordered. The beef was very chewy, chicken was yellow and smelly, rabbit was tough. The dish came with a plate of salad and it was dried and bitter. We barely touched the food and paid the bill. The waiter asked what's wrong... More

We ate here with our two 10 year old boys twice during our five day visit to Barcelona, mainly because all the staff were so welcoming and friendly on both visits, but also because the food was lovely. We ate outside. Would return again and no hesitation in recommending to others.

Having read other reviews I had to check the photos to make sure this was the right place! We are a family with twin 10-year-old boys, all of whom enjoyed our food at La Roda so much the first time that we went back for more a couple of days later :-) Adults ate seafood paella (delicious) on the first...

There seems to be mixed reviews on this restaurant but my husband and I went back a second night as we thought for the money it was good value, we had the paella for two with sangria the first night and the tapas share for two with wine the next night, for thirty euros we thought it was good.

This area is up and coming and La Roda offers a warm welcome with excellent food. Generous portions and reasonable prices. If you are staying near here do try this place and you will probably go back. The meat plate for two with wine was excellent value.

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
Poblenou
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centers catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
