If you want to have a good bargain lunch in Barcelona, this is the place to go. Also, if you arrive after 2:30 pm, you will probably get in right away for lunch. For 11.35 euros - there are 3 courses plus wine and bread included!

La Rita opens at 1pm for the main meal of the day. Get there, say 12:40, and you'll be near the front of the line. Arrive at 1pm and you might not get a table. Obviously, a great place and a great value. A mix of locals and tourists. Take the plate of the day and you'll get everything you... More

Ate here two nights out of our three nights in Barcelona. Excellent service. Lovely food. Very popular. Reasonably priced. Doesn't open until 8o'clock - gets very busy very quickly. Tasty food, portions a little small, but very tasty food. Very quick food service. Staff very polite and helpful.

La Rita is a lovely restaurant with decent food. The atmosphere is top notch with linen tablecloths and napkins, but the food is just average. The place was packed today at 2:30 with locals. And the price is right - about $13 for a fixed price lunch with a glass of wine. While I would go back, I would not... More

This is not a review of the quality of the food, that I found neither good nor bad, just the average value for money that you can expect in this type of restaurant. The problem was the courtesy of the management. First let me tell you that I am spanish so the issue was not caused by language or cultural... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
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.
