Buffet type restaurant. Located at “Paseo de Gracia”. Ideal for lunch. Variety of Spanish dishes. The restaurant´s whole setting is very nice, decoration and furnishings. Fun environment, gets a little crowded. They have a lunch value menu, which was good.

Tried out this cafe based on a few friends' recommendation. Partner and I each ordered a sandwich and got the soup of the day "carrot-coriander" to share. The sandwiches (BLT + Reuben) were both very good. Not large, but also not small. The coleslaw and salad it was served with was also good. The soup was perhaps the worst soup... More

At €11.90 for buffet dinner, it was a steal. They had good spread of food, and their beef and chicken were really good. The price includes a glass of wine, beer or soft drink. Service was great too. I could have given them 5 stars if only they could clean up the dining hall; I spotted dirt and dust on... More

Very good selection of salad items, pasta, pizza and bbq style meats and chicken. It's obviously canteen style eating but it's as much as you can eat and you're first drink is included in the price.There are no children price concessions but for our party of four we thought it was great value for money.

People were lined up out the door. We assumed it must be good. It did not disappoint. The process to get food is very slow. But no issues with the service or food.

In Italy we use the sentence "dripping fat" to refere to something we really love. Me and my friends really loved La Vaca Paca for its small price and for its GREAT meat.

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.
