Some of the waiters are rude. Not to be surprised because this is almost a rule in Barcelona. Food is good for the money you pay. Be careful with the drinks...that's the catch!! Could get expensive!

There are much better places to eat near by for a similar price. The food is very low quality and the staff are unpleasant. If you want 'all you can eat', most of the Chinese run places are better.

We walked to the Sagrada Familia and on the way back stopped here for a meal. What a surprise, very low cost, E10.90 for the buffet. Food was quite good, and we got full. For Barcelona, its quite a bargain. Would definitely suggest and return again.

One evening we decided we are hungry enough to try, for the first time in our lives, an all-you-can eat restaurant (not all you cand drink, for the thirsty ones :)) We paid the fee and tasted a little from everything : sushi, salads, steaks (the roast beef was the best), fish, pasta, lasagna, pizza, some catalan potato dish, desert...

My friend and I went here for our last dinner in Barcelona and it is a cute place off the busy road. The price is amazing for all of the food you get. And the food is delicious! I give it 2 stars because this one staff member just made it so uncomfortable. Now my Spanish is minimal at best... More

This restaurant was maybe our worst decision in barcelona. Very unfriendly staff the food was awfull a bit like school meals. But the worst thing was that my wife had a broken chair which made her fall and the staff didn't even bother to apologize or make it up in some kind of way. A terrible experience!

Well, it was just fine... Left the place full but not super happy. Buffet was very average but had enough choices. Kids liked but but but from adult point of view it was not very high quality. Long waiting time in lunchtime on Saturday and had to eat downstairs in quite plain atmosphere. Made me think of diner at office... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
