La Fonda

Spanish cuisine worth queuing for

The queue licking their lips outside probably tells you all you need to know… La Fonda restaurant serves up food well worth waiting for. Even though it’s located in the heart of the touristic Gothic Quarter, La Fonda’s core clients are locals, who clearly feel they’re getting their money’s worth in the restaurant’s elegant interior of crisp white table clothes, tropical fronds and subtle lighting.

Despite the upscale environs, the restaurant is surprisingly cheap with the lunch menu (‘menu del dia’) in particular an absolute steal – three courses and wine just 12 euros on our last visit! The a la carte menu includes classic Spanish cuisine such as paella, arroz negro and several more tasty fish and meat dishes, plus delicious desserts like Crema Catalana.

  • "One of my standby places" - by Jess
    I've lived in Barcelona for a couple years, and this is one of my standby places to take visitors. The lunchtime menú del día is really reasonably priced, especially for a place right in the city center. The paellas are good too, and really inexpensive. I especially like their paella valenciana.
