Was starving in Passeig de Gracia in the evening and ended up here. It felt a bit like both the staff and the customers were embarrassed to be there. The premises are far too fancy for a random buffet selection of some meats, tasteless pizza, dry noodles, totally unnecessary (and poor) sushi etc, with ice cream from a machine to... More

Where can you get a great lunch in Barcelona for 10.90 Euros? then try La Vaca Paca. This is one of the best buffets we have sampled. For salad lovers there is a great choice. For meat lovers the roasts are yummy. You can have 3 courses or just have seconds on your mains. We saw lots of locals do... More

This is a place to have lunch or dinner on Passeig de Gracia where you will stay on budget ! Buffet lunch costs 10.9 EUR/person, dinner costs 11.90 EUR/person - all you can eat + 1 drink included, you can choose white or red wine (not so good), beer or soft drink (fanta, coke, etc.) plus dessert (melon, ice cream,...

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...

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.
