Amazing tapas - freshest of fresh razor clams, asparagus, patatas bravas, croquettes, squid etc etc. great quick service and good fun casual dining in the middle of the best food market in the world. Cannot wait to go back here

The choice of eateries within La Boqueria can be overwhelming, but El Quim is definitely a cut above the rest. It isn't the biggest bar in the world, so getting a seat can be a tactical, stressful and pushy process. My advice - pick the diners you're going to wait for, stand right behind them and don't budge until they... More

Loved this place. Had to wait for half an hour for seats for all 6 of us but well worth it. The desserts were truly excellent esp the cheesecake. My kids wanted to return the next day too! It was voted their best meal in our 4 days in Barcelona, despite the wait!

Went to El Quim with my sister we had no problem with seating as it was in January! I knew going back to the Boqueria that I wanted to eat at one of the restaurants there and definitely chose the right one! The menu is huge and you tick off what you want to eat with a pencil. We were... More

We were in Barcelona for a music festival at the weekend. I think it is fair to say we were slightly hungover but, having read about this place in The Observer a few months ago, we couldn't have asked for a better lunch. If you have read the other reviews you don't need me to tell you about the location,... More

We were in Barcelona for 5 days and my good friend suggested that we go to this restaurant. He has been there before and we are all fans of seafood. During 5 days we have visited twice and both times it was amazing. It is a little pricey considering that it is in a market and you have to wait... More

I had planned on visiting the Boqueria Market on my Birthday, and wanted to celebrate by having a meal at El Quim, based on the raving tripadvisor reviews. Little did I know it would turn into a real adventure just to get a seat there! The place was ridiculously busy as we entered the market, so we decided to visit... More

We stopped at this stall in the market on our first day in town and the meal remains one of our favorites. I had the mixed grilled seafood and my husband had the amazingly delicious fois gras and eggs. Go for their recommendations, they will not steer you wrong.
