We visited this restaurant during our last trip to barcelona, it was our first and last visit for sure. The waiters were very rude, tasteless food and the atmosphere was terrible. As a group of seven, non of us would even think of eating there again.

Sometimes you get tired of Tapas and want all of your dinner on one plate! The buffet here is pretty good and simple. Its not the huge Las Vegas style buffet, but simply, several cold salads, hot pastas and a good variety of freshly cooked meats. They also have a small dessert and soft drink included. The price is worth... More

In case you are in a hurry, hungry and in need for a good decent lunch, nothing fancy, this is the place. They serve a great variety of dishes, mostly very good. It's not gourmet, but it's great given the price of 11 eur, including a drink and dessert.. all you can eat. Highly recommend it if you are in... More

My mom and I spent about 3 days in Barcelona, and since we had no idea what any of the food looked like, we figured we could go to a buffet and see what we liked and then order those items at other restaurants. We came here and #1. The food was not the traditional Spanish foods. No tapas, no... More

It is a small basic buffet located right at Passeig de Cracia. Not a huge variety but everything we tried was tasty and properly cooked. Price was reasonable and inexpensive compared to other nearby choices. We actually repeated, once for late dinner, the second for lunch as it was very easy to get there and we were not disappointed at... More

I was recommended this restaurant so I decided to give it a try. The menu is pretty basic with good choices for vegetarians and vegans as well. The menu included fresh vegetables, fries, 1-2 kinds of meat, pizza, plain rice and pasta with separate sauces to combine. For desert they offered ice cream/pudding/fresh melon slices. You can refill your plate... More

Well located on corner of passage de gracias, chicken beef, salad bar, drink including wine or beer pasta pizza and desert. Food not consistent. Timing can be crucial. Can be very good with fresh just prepared offerings to not. Overall had good luck. Varied menu allows for one to get their money's worth. Recommend? Yes.

This restaurant is located in the busy touristy centre just north of Ramblas. We had an 'all you can eat' lunch for around 10 Euros including a drink and we could not fault it for that price. The service was efficient and friendly and the facilities clean and tidy. Highly recommended for lunch at least!

I was there once, and i found the food well cooked, but basic. It îs a good place to eat when you dont have a big budget to spend on food. Also it îs a Little bit crowded, but That means That the food is fresh and tastefull.
