    Probably the best restaurant I've eaten at in Barcelona. The place looks beautiful and very high end but the prices are very affordable, especially if you consider the quality of the food which is exceptional. I think I've eaten my best hamburger ever here. The staff is also very kind. Totally recommended.

    Tourist trap. Tourist food. If you need source of calories - eat here, if you want flavor and good food - go somewhere else. The Only good thing was sangria. Locals don't eat here from what it looked like. Only come if you are super hungry. Seems like owners gave up on service and quality of food, location is good enough for people to keep showing up. Why did I not believe you Google!

    Very nice ambiance with white linen. Price is excellent for overall quality. Set menu weekday lunch is a good deal. I had seabass and vegetables, sorbet and sparkling water. My daughters ordered from regular menu, a roasted lamb and a chicken mushroom dish. They were all very delicious.

    Great atmosphere, and food was really fresh and very tasty. Friendly and helpful staff with a buzzing vibe and reasonably priced given how close the restaurant was to La Rambla. Tapas meal for two with bottle of wine, a desert and a glass of Bailey's was €62. Would go back for sure.

    The food is good, but with small portions. Why I gave 1 star: 1st - they bring items that you didn't ordered. And they put them on your bill.... not big items but stuff like coffee... etc 2nd - the prices don't include VAT. Even if on the outside menu it clearly states that VAT IS INCLUDED, WHEN YOU GET THE BILL IT'S WITH 10% MORE...

    I have been to this place whenever I come to Barcelona. The food is the same, but the attitude is becoming unbearable. The Asian waitress tonight at the first floor come asked me twice: are you finished. Trust me, the tone of voice is the kind of tone as my mum rushed me at dinner table when I was ten. I explained I want to have the appetizer and main dish together, so just bring it. She basically ditched the main course on my table’s corner. No other words. This is the attitude you are not going to get a tip, and definitely you are getting a bad review. Being a Asian in a restaurant serving tourist, actually I am prepared to NOT get the top notch service, but this is purely lack of respect. Yes, I come alone, and I didn’t see a queue until I leave. So I m not taking a table too long. BTW, I am starving and looking forward to a quick dinner after a long day flight. Bye la Fonda. Never coming back. And will make sure to write on Chinese review websites as well.

    Overall decent restaurant. Attentive & pleasant service. Great variety of food options. We went on a Thursday noon and since Thursday is the day of Paella obviously we opted for the seafood paella. We thought it was €14 for the plate but it is actually per pax hence for 2 of us that would be €28. Price & quality of food are on par with other restaurants with similar standards in the touristic zone of Barcelona.

    Lovely place, really warm and light inside. Food was delicious, we ordered the mixed paella, but got mixed seafood paella instead. We didn't know but it appeared to come with chips, we ordered the bread too which was nice. Paella was a good size for two to share. With several drinks, dessert each, and a paella, we paid about €50. Service was a little slow, but I think that is because we were sat in the corner. Menus in Spanish, English, and more. The staff speak several languages too. Family friendly place, with clean cutlery which is always reassuring.

    Definitely a place for tourist. Full house at around 7 pm with only two waiters, waited for more than 20mins until finally would have someone to take order, and i had to go to their stations to call them. the food was not very expensive but the paella was not impressive either.

    The food is not fresh, avoid the meat it was awful... The prices are reasonable but the quality is so low it is not worth it. The only good thing is that they cancelled the bad dishes and we were not billed. Go to other restaurant I don't know why people wait outside in line in the evenings...
