Like many restaurants you should expect a long line between 1-3pm but it runs fast. Don't forget to get your gazpacho! Prices lower at weekends.

My title says it all. If you have to ask yourself this question, turn around and walk away.. I was craving some salad/vegetables and this place was 20 meters away from my hotel(Violeta Boutique hotel) on Carrer de Casp, so I decided to check it out. What a mistake! 13 euros for all you can eat garbage.. Tasteless salads and... More

Visited the branch at Maremagnum. There are a few places to eat at the mall, but unfortunately we tried the buffet, and were asked to pay before we had seen all the food. As we went along choosing food, some of the items had numerous insects crawling over them. When we reached the desserts the amount of bugs was quite... More

They a big variety of cold salads, they have a few hot dishes but it would be nice if they had much more hot variety. Im sure every day they must change the hot dishes. But on the day we went...

I did not gave them one star just because of the very cheap price and the quantity of food you can eat. but you must be very hungry or palate blind. All the dish are greasy, store-bought, frozen, cheap, tasteless and not very fresh, you can easily eat large amount of food, feeling uncomfortable, ashemed and regretting all and all.... More

The restaurant offers decent food but there are several levels to its 'all you can eat'. You can save quite a bit of money if you choose a limited part of the buffet instead of it all. Otherwise a lunch for 4 could end up costing you 50 euros. Free refills are a rarity in Spain.

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
