Looking for a good restaurant in Barcelona this restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel staff. I got there with a friend and it was quite empty (it was 7:30pm). The waiter warned me not to take so long to come backk since it could get pretty full. Didn't believed him and were back an hour later only to find just a few tables left (this is a huge restaurant with 700 seating capacity). I have to say the service was excellent, our waiter was very friendly and efficient and food kept coming promptly. We had the 26eur. menu which included 4 appetizers (nice portions), 2 entrees and 2 desserts. We ordered the goat cheese salad, calamari rings, garlic shrimps and grilled langostinos. Everything was very good. Then, and this is the only reason didn't gave them an "excellent" rate, the fish I ordered as entree was kind of cold (has to return it to be heated) and my friend's beef was too rare (she ordered medium well) but then after that there were ok. We were offered an after dinner drink and little cake squares by the house with dessert. Our bill came for 67eur. which is not bad considering we also had a bottle of wine and water. Yes, I could eat here again anytime. (Also have to try another rest. down that line called "El Cangrejo Loco"(The Crazy Crab) which also had heard strong recommendations).

Excellent. Service is exceptional. Seafood was fresh and well prepared. Wonderful ambiance. La Fonda was packed; other restaurants nearby were vacant; that says a lot about La Fonda,

This was our second day in Barcelona and we thought of trying the seafront .. It was a total disappointment .. The bread which is served at the beginning was soggy with olive oil and tomato .. Fish was fresh but we have definitely eaten better tasty fish than this .. Sangrilla didnt have much fruits was just diluted with Ice and 2 slices of tangerines. Patata bravas which is actually supposed to be served with spicy tomato sauce is served with some salad dressing and chilly powder !! Monkfish is served undone not sure is that the way u are supposed to eat it . I have always eaten fish well cooked ! We have definitely eaten better fish and hot tapas . It's a total waste of time and money ..

MOST IMPORTANT THING - at 1:00 pm the place gets full within minutes, so get there earlier or make a reservations (really !).

The food (especially seafood) is just lovely - the lunch menu is 26 EUR per person and includes 4 startes per table (Cesar's salad is quite good, so are clams and fried prawns) and a main course (to be chosen from a quite a long and solid list - it did include a lobster :-) - see pictures).

The service is good and fast enough, with nice attitude - you will fill quite relaxed and comfortable.

The wine selection is wide enough to match almost every dish served.

This was a recommendation by a local who went regularly for family Sunday lunches. It is one of many large restaurants in the Port Olimpic area but we hit it on a bad day. A party of four, we booked early by Spanish times so the restaurant was nearly empty. We chose our meal and waited. After 45 minutes the main course for two people came, The other two had to wait another 15 minutes and both their orders were incorrect. Our waiter was then replaced and the new waiter made strenous attempts to recover the situation including a free dessert. His efforts were undone when the bill came and they had charged us for five main courses.
