Dolça Herminia (La)
This restaurant is large, with hard-to-define decor, but is one of the most pleasant restaurants in the Barri Gòtic. It is an ideal place to recharge your batteries after wandering through the old town and visiting the cathedral, especially because of the price of their set menu,(EUR 8). The restaurant attracts a lot of tourists due to its location. They serve market cuisine, with lots of light, well-prepared dishes including salads, vegetable cakes, fish, fricassee and delicious desserts, such as tiramisu, yoghurts, and fruit and ice-cream combos.
If looks were everything then this would be a great restaurant. Wish I had just looked at the interior, given them my money and gone and eaten somewhere else.
The food was in general poorly cooked, covered in oil - so much that we had to ask for a plate to drain it away - and in the case of one item unrecognizable. The service bordered on rude. We thought that maybe it was just because we were from NA but the German couple next to us faired no better and enjoyed their meal no more. Maybe it was a bad night for them but since the menu is similar to that of its sister restaurant Les Quinze Nits go there where both the cooking and service is better.
Barcelona has some great restaurants and some not so great that still give you value for your money. This one is in a category that offers neither benefit in my view.
I use to have lunch at La Dol�a Herm�nia. Meals are good, well presented, and served with an smile. Staff is very kind (you can greet most them with a tagalo "magandang umaga" -good day- or "magandang tanghali" -good evening-). The relation price / quality is excellent. The place is decorated comfortably and the atmosphere is pleasant. White ironed tableclothes.
