Best for Cheap eats - Expert review of La Farinera

Great value three-course menus in this converted Art Nouveau flour factory.

If, like me, you love Modernista architecture – the Catalan version of Art Nouveau - you’ll love this place. This grandiose ex-flour factory is one of the city’s most famous Modernista buildings and if you eat in the restaurant in the basement, you get good, simple, good value Catalan food and the chance to the see the building into the bargain.

Food and drink: 

It's traditional Catalan. They do a particularly good arroz a la casola – the Catalan version of paella, cooked in a deep earthenware pot rather than a shallow pan. I’m also a fan of their homemade flan de huevo – crème caramel.

Ambience: 

It's modern and minimalist in contrast to the swirling splendour of the building.

Service: 

It's good, prompt and very friendly.

Location: 

It's about a five to ten-minute walk from the cinema museum and the main city shopping area.

Price advice: 

The menu of the day is nine euros.
