Do not waste your time or money at this awful place. Service was pathetic with the drinks and food to match. Do not be fooled by the extravagant window displays. Keep walking, there are much nicer places further down La Rambla.

Went there two times during my trip. You must have some time becouse this is not a quick lunc. Everything a had was either good or suoer good. Spend over 80 € (two persons) both times but it was worth it.

We have visited La Boqueria market after we have settled our hotel. You were charmed as soon as you have entered the market. Sea foods, colourful fruits, juices, cheeses, meats etc were everywhere and have looked like very fresh. We have gone to El Quim since we were very hungry. The kitchen of here was buffet style. It was in... More

Fried egg with baby squid and boca quim sandwich were amazing. Other food were also spectacular and fairly priced. Highly recommended.

Fresh, wonderful food at this small place in the middle of the market. Very popular but wait for some chairs, you will not regret it. Delicious food!

I ordered the BocaQUIM even though my seat mates were eating everything from fish and eggs with beer, to chocolate desserts with coffee and cognac! It's wonderful to eat with people who will eat and drink anything they like at 11 AM :) The BocaQUIM may be the best hot sandwich I have ever eaten! It's the perfect brunch combination... More

El Quim is a fantastic tapas bar in the heart of one of the world's best markets. They do the usual patatas bravas and padron peppers - all tasty - but the seafood dishes really shine: fresh razor clams, meaty tuna cheek, prawns in cava, tender baby squid with beans, or leeks, or eggs... Or go for a juicy Catalan... More

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
