Great little Chinese restaurant amongst a sea of Pizza places.

Very quick service, very fresh food, decent portions. We liked it

Average food, average service. Price not high but in line with the the overall experience. Only good point: the speed (but to pay: no one looked interested to get my money...).

We've been coming here for years. It's a bit eccentric (noticed a lawnmower under one of the inside tables this year) but the food is good, fast and cheap. They have branched out into sushi recently - served in a small bamboo boat - and the party of Japanese guys who were having it next to us seemed to be loving it, so may try that next time. Don't change, Grande cina.

Every so often you find a place that makes you rethink all your ideas about what makes a great place to eat - welcome to La Grande Cina. Clean, tasty and great value - all boxes ticked.
First off, the staff. I've read a review here expressing surprise that they don't speak mush English - that didn't bother me. The town is visited almost exclusively by Italians so English is not essential. They made a great effort to try to explain things to us and we managed without difficulty - its tricky trying to explain to an Italian speaking Chinese person the restrictions of a halal diet! But we all managed - no problem. And when we did have a misunderstanding about the ham content of the Cantonese fried rice they swapped it out without hesitation. And when we originally arrived in the town at 11:30pm tired and hungry, La Grande Cina were the only people to welcome us in and feed us.
The food is really good - it tastes as good as any Chinese I've had. The dishes are simple and well presented. The prawn fried rice is excellent - as is the spicy duck.
The prices are very good. In a town where bland-18euro-starters are the norm La Grande Cina stands out as offering very tasty food, cooked well, presented well, in a spotlessly clean environment with excellent staff

The food was very good and they served us with a great speed, but the waitresses couldn't communicate in english. it was hard to even understand us when we asked for the check. in a town full of tourists i find this unacceptable.
anyhow, the food was good, the prices more than good ( a main course 4 euros, rice 1.5 euros).
