Value for the money - reasonably good

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...

This restaurant was maybe our worst decision in barcelona. Very unfriendly staff the food was awfull a bit like school meals. But the worst thing was that my wife had a broken chair which made her fall and the staff didn't even bother to apologize or make it up in some kind of way. A terrible experience!

Well, it was just fine... Left the place full but not super happy. Buffet was very average but had enough choices. Kids liked but but but from adult point of view it was not very high quality. Long waiting time in lunchtime on Saturday and had to eat downstairs in quite plain atmosphere. Made me think of diner at office... More

I visited here with three friends on Tuesday 30th September. We were eating starters, outside. The first two gentlemen that served us were perfectly genial and all was fine with the food and drinks. I asked a third, slightly older waiter for an ashtray, if possible. He put in front of me the that we used to dip our sushi... More
