I mean, if you eat outside or inside it's a good place, but never go downstairs, it smells so bad, but it's a good place for taking the buffet and having the food on your way.

This place is perfect for those who want to have lunch while strolling along Passeig de Gracia, one of the main streets in Barcelona. It displays a wide choice of dishes, from pizza to sushi, even though its speciality is meat. However, vegetarian options are available. The offer of an all-inclusive buffet is quite affordable and allows everybody to enjoy... More

This is an open buffet type of restaurant. The food was really good. Very nice atmosphere. The waitresses spoke English which was very helpful. You get a choice of drink beer, wine or soft drinks for €10.90

At least I found some food I like, such as salad, fruit, soup and meat. For the price 13 euro including drink and desert you cannot find better deal in Barcelona. We walked so much in the morning until 1 Pm, which is a good timing to have plenty food choices.

A great price for a lot of food. The secret is to grab the items as they come from the kitchen. Always go back for seconds to see if there are any new hot items. This place is tops in my opinion for value.

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.
