I would definitely recommend it for a quick lunch. The price is very good, you pay 11 euros and eat all you can + drink + desert. The buffet is good, with fresh salads and very good meat. The hot plates are not amazing, but very decent. Quick service and fast to get a table.

Very good value buffet lunch munu, not the best quality food but being a buffet you are in control of what you eat. At 10 Euros for lunch including drink on the Passeig de Gracia it is good value.

Having in mind that barcelona is a very expensive place to eat, weather its the main meals or even breakfast, the food and price here are acceptable. It's in a central location, worth a try.

We found this buffet-restaurant while looking for a place for lunch, and were really surprised by cheap price and rich menu. It was really nice to find such place in city center, were most of restaurants and cafe can offer only moderate business-lunch for higher price.

We were walking down Passeig de Gracia and stopped for dinner. Excellent! Good variety, atmosphere and great price. We will eat there again next time we are in Barcelona.

Usually I'm not interested in all-you-can-eat buffets, but this one was decent, especially for the price. The food was adequate and tasty, and provided a modestly priced lunch.

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.
