Be ready to stand in line for a while in order to get a table, but once you're inside you'll understand what's all the fuss about: it's a very nice budget restaurant with the feel of a more expensive place. Service is not that fast, but waiters never stop running between tables and the restaurant is always full. You may... More

The waitress was extremely rude, she raised her voice at my 12 years son just because he moved his chair to a different side of the table. Through our dinner it was impossible to catch her eye, when we finally got someones attention, we had to ask three or four times for check. We ended paying at the cashier downstairs,... More

Nice location, good service and reasonable price. But the taste is not what we expected. We tried paella in at least 5 different restaurant and this won't make top3. Sangria is nice though.

This is my restaurant of choice in Port Olimpic where I keep a boat. It is has a large dining area under cover separated by a narrow alleyway from the kitchens and some limited outdoor seating. Open from breakfast until very late, it can cater for virtually any size of party and as a consequence gets groups from cruise liners... More

Had eaten at one of the restaurants by the marina near the casino back in 2009 and enjoyed it so planned to have a meal there again on this trip. Saw that La Fonda had good reviews so made a reservation with 3 business colleagues for 8pm. Ended up not needing a reservation as there were several tables available inside... More

A pleasant and very busy restaurant with reasonably good service. Unfortunately, the food was very average. We had gaspatxo and beef carpaccio that are both rather poor, follow by veal cheeks on potato which was pretty tasteless. We were in Barcelona 10 days and decided not to go back.
