“Low quality food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

You don't expect much for such a cheap buffet in the middle of the most expensive street in Barcelona. I guess you get what you pay for. The food is not very good, not very hot and most of the time it tastes like it has been sitting on the trays for hours.

“Good food, all you can eat...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Good choice of meat, salad, rice and pasta for a reasonable price. As a vegetarian, this was a good option for me, we had our main meal of the day here, which was enough to last us all day. There's also ice cream and coffee included in the price!

“Super location and decent price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

La Vaca Paca is an amusing name for an all you can eat
restaurant smack on Paseig de Gracia, one of Barcelona"s
most attractive avenues. About 2-3 block below Casa Batllo
and near to La Pedrera (both exquisite Gaudi landmarks),
you can enjoy place. At the price, you cannot expect 1st
class, but have a choice of minimum 1 soup, lots starters,
as much meat, chicken, pork, paella, etc...as you wish.You
also get one drink (soda,beer/wine), plus coffee at the end and
also ice cream or fruit.
You can eat inside (2 levels), or on a pleasant day, sit outside
and enjoy the atmosphere of people walking along the street.
The staff is very pleasant, and the food and facilities are clean.
All in all, a nice and inexpensive place to have an informal lunch.

“It used to be better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

I used to go there a long time ago, when "Eat as you can" restaurants appeared (15 years ago). Maybe I prefer something better, maybe I'm older :(
