In the centre back of the market the location couldn't be better really. The seafood tapas are particularly lush, as are all the potatoe ones. I loved stopping off here before or after a meeting for a light lunch or snackette. And you do your groceries straight after. Delicious and convenient The staff are pleasant and super fast.

Absolutely the winner among the tapas bars in Barcelona, but the prices are not the cheapest and it can be justified by its location, just in the heart of the most picturesque market la Boqueria. But it's worth to try. We've been here twice with my 8 years old and we loved it. And Cava, don't forget to add it... More

A wonderful experience. Fast and furious (Don't be put off by the queue) with pleasant service and very high quality seafood. Watching your menu choice being cooked in front of you simply adds to the joy of the whole event. Sit back and drink it all in!

We had good patatas bravas, vegetable croquetas, and good - but expensive! - squid. The food was tasty and nicely presented and the location is great, but we paid 30 euros for 3 small dishes. The bread is not especially good and it's not included in the price.

Tapas stall is situated in the la boqueria market, you sit at the bar as your food is served. Dotted all around the counter are photos and newspaper clippings of the owner with famous people, I could certainly see it had a great reputation and the food did not displease. Food tasted fresh and was served pretty quickly, I could... More

This is a stall in the middle of a fantastic food-hall. Sitting around the outside you get a great choice of tapas/traditional breakfasts and can watch the activity in the market. It was in the market so a bit chilly when we were there in January. Food was great, coffee was excellent and because the locals were doing so I... More

La Boquerie is a great experience in Barcelona. It's on La Rambla. If you go in the morning, you will be able to see all the fish being sold. We went there at any moment several times to buy a fuet (a Catalan sausage - the best is there), Jamon Serrano, olives, cheese and fresh juices.

One of the better places to eat in the market and by La Rambas street! The squid with the egg is great and one of their specialities.
