Excellent restaurant close to the La Rambla area. Food was SUPERB, especially the swordfish entre, Salmon entre and Crepe with Nougat Ice Cream Filling with Chocolate Sauce. The sangria was delicious as well. We loved the food so much we returned for a 2nd evening. Service was good & waiters were attentive & helpful. Shall most certainly return next time!

For two couples, the cost was 108 euros, including first course, second, shared desserts and two bottles of wine. Recommend the warmed goat cheese salad and gazpacho. For the main, I had entrecôte...

The food was well prepeared, the service was fun and friendly, and there was a very great buzz among the diners and the staff. My... More

The environment was good. We come because many people recommended. Perhaps we did not order the right dish? But the food is just average

We saw the long line outside La Fonda and thought "must be good", came back a couple hours later and got right in. I had the gazpacho - best I ever tasted!! We even got some to go!! Also, the steak, the lamb, the salad and more everything was yummy.....came back another night. Oh yeah, sangria, too.

Absolutely fantastic! We had a paella meal for two. The starters were great: black noodles and a salad. And just when we thought it couldn't get better they served the paella! Mmmmmmmmmm Nothing else I could possibly say! Strongly recommend!
