Our group in Barcelona had grown to 21 less 2 who couldn’t join us for dinner. Sha thought a buffet dinner would be more efficient for such a big group and Moncho’s was suggested by a local tour guide.
I wasn’t expecting much from a buffet and I was right. The food wasn’t very good except for the seafood.
I’ve always wanted to try Paella Fideuà which is a also a classic dish made with thin pasta instead of rice. I was just scared to order it in a restaurant in case I didn’t like it. It was ok but I still like the rice version more. Paella Fideuà
There were lots of cold salads which I skipped.
The usual salad bar and this took up more than half of the buffet table.
None of the hot entrees looked appetizing either.
You can’t go wrong with simply steamed seafood and there were a lot of choices.
These were on our table. On top was the classic tomato bread which was soggy and yucky. The potato chips didn’t fare any better.
Different kinds of meats were brought to our table. It wasn’t good either.
My first plate.
I really, really loved the super sweet crayfish!! Can you believe there was NO dessert in the buffet? Not even fruit.
The sausages were not edible either.
You get what you pay for. The price for the buffet cost €17.30 for adults and only €8.80 for kids. At least this was our first and last buffet. All our other meals in Barcelona were so much better.
