La Rita was recommended in my Barcelona travel guide book. I also checked on Trip Advisor and saw it was highly rated too. And the front desk at the hotel also recommended it, so we were expecting a great meal, and that is exactly what we got. Our hotel advised us to be there at 8.30pm, when they opened for... More

We had a truly wonderful meal at La Rita. The restaurant is beautiful inside, service was wonderful, and the food was excellent. I highly recommend the fish soup, beef tartare, and creme brule. Of the dishes we got, they were the best.

First discovered La Rita years ago upon my first visit to Barcelona and happy to report that it still is the gem of the Grupo Andilana chain of Spanish restaurants. On a recent visit all aspects of the service, food quality and decor have held up well and should be a model for their Sister locations. The hallmark of Andilana's... More

We ate here when we last came 10 years ago and hoped it would be every bit as good - we weren't disappointed at all. Admittedly, it's hard to get a table. Brilliant value for money though. Four peoples, 3 courses with beer, wine and coffee - for only €102 altogether. The swordfish was divine and other guests praised the... More

Truly bad service, items ordered but not brought to us yet still on the bill ! Waited ages for the bill , had to ask twice. Food was lukewarm, bland at best. I certainly would not recommend this place. It was very busy so locals must be easily pleased as there are far better eateries around the area.

I visited the restaurant twice with friends and, overall, I strongly recommend this place. The restaurant is very close to the Passeig de Gràcia (downtown Barcelona) and offers clients a very good proposal, including 1) a nice atmosphere, 2) excellent food at a more than fair price (in the case of a dinner, one can pay between 15 euro -...

A great menu del dia for an unbeatable price. The weekday lunch deal is only €10.90 and includes bread, water or wine, a starter course, a main course, and a dessert. The quality of the food is fresh and has complex flavors. They also have a rotating menu del dia menu based on what is available or in season. At... More

As a couple we ordered different items. Both were delicous . She had Tuna and I had chicken stripes in curry and coconut milk sauce. Both were delicous. Even we spent only 4 night in Barcelona we decided to eat at La Rita twice and we really do not regret.

Very close to Paseig de Gracia, this is a nice looking place with delicious food and great service. First ordered some tapas, my favorite was small octopus in a spicy sauce. As a main dish I ordered the trufled risotto which was very good also. Would definetly be back when I visit again Barcelona.

We ended up eating here for 2 of the 4 evenings we were in the city. The food quality is excellent and the value is unbelievable. On both evenings we enjoyed starters, main courses, desserts and wine for under 50 Euros. Highly recommend - friendly staff, and smart setting. Make sure you book!

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
