A short walk from the Ramblas is Biocenter, a deceptively fronted restaurant with lots of space and offerings, mostly buffet style. For lunch (when we were there), there are a few choices in terms of fixed or a la carte menu prices. The food is well prepared, unpretentious, filling and flavorful. Salad bar is OK. The gazpacho was disappointing but the vegetable soup was OK. We didn't try the desserts. Good value for the money.

The food was good, the desserts not so much...
The place looks like a simple cafeteria- NOTHING fancy. Good value. Self serve. Imagine hippy-like setting...

Well a few streets north (and on same side as) the public market, off La Ramblas. Number 25 Carrer, Pintor Fortuny, this deceptively spacious cafe-cum-restaurante has a narrow frontage but goes back for miles! On offer only vegetarian quisine in a buffet self-serve style.
You can have a soup, piles of salad, main and a pud for 10 euro`s, or have composte bits, individually priced. We were a group of five. All had salads - a good selection from pasta, potatoes, boiled eggs, pulses, peas grains, olives, tomatoes, peppers, mixed beetroot etc etc. Good dark grain bread.
I had plate of very varied salads and hot tofu curry and couscous. The pasta with Rocefor sauce and the Carrot Pie got the thumbs up too. The chocolate brownie was dense, dark, moist and delicious, choice of teas, juices etc. The bill for 5, all consuming no less than two courses, but some three..with drinks was under 48 euro`s.

Biocenter is 1 minute walk from the Rambla. You can get 3 different experiences based on the time of the day you go. From 1pm to 4pm there is the set lunch with eat as much as you like salad buffet and hot meals.
If you go from 4pm to 8pm, you can have a coffee, fresh cakes and few tapas.
Finally after 8pm there is a quite unique “a la carte” menu, with original combination of vegetarian ingredients served in huge portions. A must try is the meat-like seitan (wheat protein) in white wine sauce.
And if you have the luck to go on Thursday or Friday you can also enjoy a class of salsa or tango before or after your supper.
