About La Paloma Restaurant
La Paloma is a Swedish-owned cosmopolitan restaurant on the iconic street known as Apuntadores, in the atmospheric district of La Lonja. The historical building in which it is located has a corner position and is more than 500 years old.
Open and serving food all day from lunchtime, it’s an ideal place to know about when hunger strikes between the conventional lunch and dinner service times elsewhere.
The owner carefully restored the property to provide three different dining spaces. The main dining area is on the ground floor and accommodates 70 people. The elegant Sala Noble is on the upper floor, where 90 people can sit. Their VIP room is perfect for private dining, for up to 30 people, and a choice of set menus for groups is available. Otherwise, order from their à la carte menu (which includes tapas) or the good-value weekday set lunch menu.
La Paloma is well-known for its grilled meat dishes, but there are also dishes suitable for vegetarians.
