This is an excellent find. Very traditional and full of character. The staff are great and very friendly (even when extremely busy). Food is simple but excellently put together. Note: they are/were closed for August which may be frustrating for summer tourists, but definitely make the effort in the other months.

We had a lunch here. Great place to just drop into and eat a fast and cheap lunch, with ingredients of high quality and cool interior. This tapas bar has a very good selection of wine from many regions in Spain, so you combine a good meal with some serious shopping.

we had one of our best tapas meals/experiences at this little lovely place. it is small so expect it to be crowded. expect to rub shoulders with strangers and fight for attention. but also expect quick and friendly service and very, very, good food. we loved the small sandwiches (available in a great variety of flavors). almost everyone will be...

Went here last year and liked a lot, but this time it is closed for august. Recommend salmon with honey. There ara no tabels, you stand at street. The bar is small, service is great.

I used to live two blocks from this bar, so for many years it was my local place to meet with friends or bring people who was visiting Barcelona. It was a well kept it secret for many locals. Well seems like no a 'secret place' any more, the last time I was there I could see many tourist, but... More

I have a thing for hole-in-the-wall restaurants when I'm travelling because that's usually where I end up finding the most authentic local food. Quimet & Quimet was no different. We got to Q&Q around 1:30pm in the afternoon and it was the perfect time to get there. It wasn't as crowded and we didn't have to wait at all. It... More

... A pity I can't be there every day. I went on recommendation of the concierge. The restaurant is owner operated and Quimet makes the tapas himself. I didn't look at the menu but instead asked him to. Ake me 3 tapas and a glass of white. 5 min later I was enjoying a dance on my tongue! Will certainly... More

Quimet & Quimet is tiny, crowded, loud, and absolutely perfect. My party and I visited this family run Barcelona institution two of our last three nights in Barcelona. Do not be intimidated by the loud and cramped nature of the place. Walk in, grab a menu, and place an order. Every last things we tried on the menu was delicious.... More

Got this place recommended from a local Spanish lady that brings her family here for tapas. The place is smaller then I expected but the tapas are really worth it. You have to push your way to the front and order what you want. The staff is amazing in keeping control on what you have ordered and the tapas are... More
