Food disappointing and too busy. Food not ordered but charged for. Noisy from large table near us and lighting too garish. The lights were very bright all evening, no subtle ambient lighting.

We arrived at the restaurant at 1650 to be told in no uncertain terms that they do not do bookings and that the... More

Ended up here after a day exploring Montserrat. We were cold and hungry! We split the paella and gobbled it up! Very tasty, not sure it's anything amazing, but did the trick for sure!

La Fonda is a nice restaurant decorated in a modern but yet traditional style, although it might feel too dark inside for my taste. Its location in an alley, just off las ramblas, make it a perfect spot for tourists and locals alike. I've only eaten during lunch. La Fonda offers a lunch menu, four first courses, four mains and...
