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.

In the city centre, near one of Gaudi's houses, it offers a vaste range of food all-you-can-eat at very low prices!! The food was tasty and the atmosphere was okay. It's worth a visit!!!!

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.

It's a buffet so don't expect a really tasty meal, it's very cheap and you can eat a lot, that's what counts here. You also can have a drink with that and if you eat outside it's better so you don't feel packed inside. We went 2 times with y friends when we were in Barcelona.

We initially ate dinner here as their buffet looked good. I did find the staff to be very rude though, you are not allowed to pay before grabbing a plate which is stupid as you have shopping and bags in your hands. I asked if i could pay first and the guy behind the cashier said i had to go... 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.
