Found this restaurant during our visit to Poble Espanyol and chose to eat here because the menu clearly states which dishes are gluten free. The waiter was friendly and helpful, explaining the Catalan tradition of rubbing the bread with garlic then tomato, which was delicious, and bringing me gluten free bread. The wild mushroom pie was wonderful, the tastiest gluten... More

We have spent the day in there for a special event for the kids. It was lunch time and we were searching for a restaurant with no knowledge at all, and we have found this place. Quite a good discovery. A tasty menú for 20 EUR with a good number of starters and main courses with an ending good choice... More

We enjoyed outside dinning, during a visit to Poble Espanols resturant La font de Prades. We had the fixed price menu, at 19.90 euro each our food was very good, we had salad, a mushroom dish, mussels and a pork dish, and very nice garlic bread, and drinks.

We booked a table for 20.00 hrs on 22/07/15 all confirmed over the phone that afternoon for a special occasion .After walking up from the metro on a very hot evening we were told the restaurant closed at 20.00 hrs. The website stated opening hrs were 20.00-22.00.Very disappointing!!

I was excited to have dinner in this restaurant, as it is located in Poble Español and the reviews very pretty good. It is a shame that such a nice traditional place it’s a complete trap for anyone who does not have a clue of Catalan cuisine. I have said it before and I will say it again that service... More

This restaurant, located inside Poble Espanyol, is a must. Food, wine and sangria all excellent. We sat outside and enjoyed our evening with friends.

We spent a lovely evening wandering round Poble Espanyol and, undecided where to eat, followed our noses to this restaurant. It's not on the main square so it's not quite as noisy as some of the other bars and restaurants. We sat outside and really enjoyed the food, lots of tapas, and the atmosphere. The service was efficient and friendly... More

When we visited the place for lunch it was chokka with what looked like a senior citizens Spanish coach party! There were ten of us too so you can imagine - dealing with all this was a feat for any restaurant! The fixed price menu (19.90E for 3 courses) had loads of choice but most offerings were very simple -... More

Good basic food, reasonable price, good service and atmosphere. VIsiting Poble Espanyol itself was a treat, but sitting outside under shade and taking it all in while eating good food with good company was the real treat. Highly recommended.

There are so many restaurants to choose from at Poble Espanyol, but this one had cherry tomatoes and garlic and oil at all the tables and even before ordering they bring out toasted bread for you to rub the raw garlic in and top with the tomatoes and oil. They have an excellent choice and the best part is you... More

Staying in Montjuic

Neighborhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colorful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
