We were there for dinner with our 14 month baby. The food was very nice, the prices were reasonable. I would go again.

You stand outside looking at the menu and everything seems to be around or under 10 euros. You figured it's fancy from the outside and the inside looks nice so you go inside. That's exactly what happened to us. The food portion is on the small side so you need a starter and finish off with desert. You'll end up... More

Hubby and I stumbled upon this restaurant and managed to be seated right away for dinner. After being seated, we saw that queues started to appear outside and thought this restaurant must be good! Service was quick and efficient and it is clear that due to the queues they tend to turn tables quickly, however we did not feel rushed.... More

My daughter Kate and I were here for lunch on a weekday, very busy downstairs so we were seated upstairs. Quick and friendly service for such a busy day. The menu was full of surprises, so choosing a main course was a challenge. I had the Rosemary Tuna which was wonderful. It was fun sitting above the main dining area... More

We had the €60 per head taster menu and it did not disappoint, the flavours were immense and the pairing of the Wines to the courses( which was included) was very good. We finished the evening off with a cocktail on the a very comfortable rooftop bar. A great night.

La Fonda restaurant is good food but not fine dining, there again it does not come at fine dining prices either and is quite reasonably priced. There is a great buzz about the place and gets quite busy any day of the week. I would return to La Fonda for a casual evening meal.

The food is good, but bad service. It is easy to find this restaurant, just near the Teatre Principal. A girl name Lilian is the worst waitress i've ever seen. No smile, no patient... Won't be there the second time. And the meal may be the worst experience in Barcelona.

Just left this restaurant. We were a party of four, seated very promptly but then left for a very long time before we were offered drinks. We had to request glasses! Waiters flew by dropping cutlery on tables, no smiles, no social interaction whatsoever. Food order eventually taken by a waitress, no pleasantries, no smiles ... we ordered salads, one... More

We were starving and we passed by the restaurant remembering that there's always a line here so we went in. The food was ok minus (taking into consideration that we were really hungry means bad things) - it was food that would be acceptableish maybe at a over touristy place on the beach or something. We had a honey samon... More
