Fresc Co

restaurants / Buffet & self-serve

Lonely Planet review

If you just can’t face deciphering another Spanish menu or are in dire need of a do-it-yourself salad, Fresc Co is a fresh, well-priced and all-you-can-eat antidote. OK, so the atmosphere is cafeteria-style and none too exciting, but the extensive choice of self-service salads, soups, pasta, pizza and other hot dishes more than makes up for it; the price includes a drink and queues often go out the door at lunchtime. There’s another branch just off Gran Vía in the centre.
