As we were hungry and passed it on the way from metro, we decided to give it a go especially that no wait for food was expected - all you can eat buffet. It also sounded like a good idea to be able to try a few different tapas. Well, unfortunately hot food wasn't hot at all, rather luke warm.... More

Poor service, waited about 10 minutes to be served, was just about to leave when waiter approached. Orders three beers, 7.50 each, most expensive beers in our week long stay in Barcelona.

I have been travelling around Europe for about 6 weeks and this is hands down the worst place to eat. Me and my boyfriend sat down for the 10€ buffet of cold meals and salad. We filled our plates a few times with some mediocre salad but figured for 10€ it was alright. When the bill came our drinks were... More

Was on holiday and visited Barcelona for the day and decided to try some of the local food. We walked around for a while and found this place which looked great from first glance. We sat down inside and asked for drinks as it was boiling hot outside, half an hour later, we were still waiting. My partner went up... More

First off, do not raise your expectations, it's an all you can eat buffet; the drinks are overpriced, food is served from warming pans so the temperature varies and it is normally packed. Took my girlfriend, who has never had tapas, to introduce her to it. Food was great (considering that it's mass cooked) and the staff are very friendly,... More

A one price buffet with a good variety of tapas, hot and cold. The quality of the food was better than expected at the price and service and atmosphere were pleasant. 56 euros for 3 people, with a drink each.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
