Group meals: €25 max
Go out for an affordable group meal with friends or family – no one pays more than €25
La Góndola Italian restaurant is your budget’s best friend with set menus ranging from €15 to €22 per person. You can get things going with a selection of six starters, such as Neapolitan fritters, cold cuts, bruschetta or aubergine with mozzarella, carry on to mains with their outstanding pizzas cooked in a wood oven, or expertly executed pasta dishes. And to drink you get a bottle of wine between every four people, and a Lambrusco on the house. A group is defined as between 10 and 50 people.
They’re not joking around at Ofis. The daytime version of the Sifón bar does one of the best set lunch menus in Barcelona in their price range (€10), and you won’t be disappointed by the nighttime menu either. Chef Jorge Runnacles talks in terms of ‘flexibility to do what the client wants’. So you can ask for what you like, but for €25 they suggest, for example, a crunchy chicken salad with lime dressing and cream of courgette with truffle soup, and for mains they have gnocchi with Osso Buco ragout or baked seabass. The house wine is Ca N'Estruch, and the value for money is supreme. If your group is three or more, you’ll dine in Sifón next door, and if you’ve got 20 or more to go round the table, they’ll open Ofis just for your group.
