The paella is as good as usual, but the service is bad, even worse than before. We sit downstairs, the waiter, I guess he's indian, because of the accent, is rude, never smiles and his English is hard to understand.

For 16.85 euros, I got : A tortilla, Stewed veal with potatoes and green peas, Catalan cream Bread And 1/4 of wine. Not bad at all for that price. Of course you have more choices on the menu. Food quality is really decent. Will go back for sure.

My first time experience of this seemingly clean restaurant. Very efficient and good service. Reasonably priced. Had some not very tasty Calamares Romana for starter, a heated shoulder of a lamb (had probably been frozen in a plastic bag), ok but not very tasty either. When I bent down to fetch money from my bag for the bill, I saw... More

The food at La Fonda is really reasonably priced and incredibly well cooked. It was just want we wanted - I had the roast lamb shoulder which was succulent and came with roast vegetables, and my friend has the roasted duck leg which was accompanied by caramelised fruit. Both dishes were delicious and came to 20 Euros each including wine... More

Great food, we had paella for 2 which was very nice. Reasonable priced. Only thing that let the la Fonda down was the service, waiters didn't smile once and weren't efficient

We sent to La Fonda to times during our stay, and left the place with a good experience both times. Very nice place with good food (and a lot of it :-) ) and a fine service.

I felt the La Fonda experience is a bit over rated. The food was OK but not outstanding. The steak ordered was overdone. The drinks menu was good. The location is nice and the ambience was fine. Would try somewhere else if I only had few days in Barcelona

Service is a little slow but the location, price and food are great. We went there twice during our six days stay in Barcelona. It is just off the La Rambla street and close to the port. With wine and three course meal including seafood main course, our bill was around 50 euro. Will go back if I have a... More

Located just off Las Ramblas closer to the the statue of Columbus than to the Plaza Catalunya. Good food at a reasonable price. The "menú del día" offers the best price, and the portions are generous. Half a carafe of wine is included in the price. There is also a special "menú Catalán" - a good option if your time... More
