Worth a stop and patatas bravas and croquetas totally yum. The albondigas (meatballs) tasty but have to knock off a point for raisins in the sauce! What was heartening as a customer (although I appreciate an issue in terms of food waste) was that as we only got there at about 3.45 firstly they still served the us and prepared for us the cooked items requested) but as 4pm is close time all the fresh fish and seafood items from counter we saw binned. The place is so popular they could easily try and pass it off or preserve some way but fresh is what they are offering so has to be binned. Kind of a shame items not offered out to those left at the bar to just try 😉

Curious about the hype on social media, we headed to Quim for lunch. The place was packed. We had to wait 45 minutes, standing behind seated customers. My spouse ordered a slab of steak and I ordered fried eggs with baby squid. Food was great but pricey, but I guess it is what it is when you’re famous on the internet.

The most delicious market restaurant in Barcelona. the quim is a restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch. A varied menu and undoubtedly delicious. Always full of people and you have to wait patiently for the place but don't despair because the food is worth the wait. All the dishes ordered that afternoon came out at exact intervals for the time we were. The restaurant staff always makes sure you don't stay hungry. This is by far the most delicious restaurant in the Boquria market in Barcelona.

We heard a lot about this place so we weren’t going to miss it. It was packed but we were able to get a seat within 15mins. We ordered their famous Huevos con Chipirones among others and some local wines. The food and wine were good but when combined with the atmosphere, the buzz of the market and energy coming from the kitchen, I understood why this place was highly recommended. The downside is that it has perhaps become too popular resulting in unrealistically high expectations and a little overcrowding. All in all, we really enjoyed our time there and we recommend it to anyone visiting Barcelona.

This place serves very good food but I had two complaints about this place. Dishonest staff. They almost in every case, over charge you for things they either never serve. For example, we had ordered for salted anchovies but was served anchovies fillet but was charged for salted anchovies which was twice the amount. Also, one couple sitting next to us was also charged for something which was not served to them. This is clearing done on purpose. Secondly, they almost in every case don’t serve you what you have ordered. However, the food they serve is very testy and that perhaps is the only reason they have a good clientele. However pls check your bills!

This is a popular tapas stall in La Boqueria. The service is friendly, fast and the food is delicious and fresh. For two, we had the ceviche (€20), octopus on 2 fried eggs (huevos chipirones) and prawns (without the shell) (gambas ajillo) washed down with sangria. Perfect. Not inexpensive, however tasty and worthwhile.

We were lucky to grab four seats in a row around 10:30. Ordering was made easy by marking ticks on the menu and handing back to the kitchen staff. The food in prepared in the busy kitchen directly in front of the seats. We really enjoyed cava and delicious seafood. The total bill was just under €50 and the experience was well worth it.

The tapas were very good, very tasty. We loved the gazpacho, the pimentos del Padron, the pan y tomato. The Iberic ham served was good but not worth 18 euros, because we saw that it was served from a supermarket package. All the rest was very good.

We were recommended this bar by multiple guides and it was our first stop in Barcelona. We had baby squid with two fried eggs, roasted green peppers, artichoke chips, olives as well as two glasses of Cava. The wine was good and all of our plates were very tasty. However, we paid total of €48 for our meal. This was largely because of the €20 baby squid and eggs, which was good but not worth the price. My advice to future diners - get a lot of smaller cheaper dishes and avoid the slightly more pricey options. Other than that, very tasty food.

Excellent food even if you’re not hungry, order whatever you fancy and just sit back and enjoy the lively atmosphere. The fried artichokes are delicious, it’s a must try. The wait staff is pleasant, friendly with readily smiles.

One of the most famous “to go too” places in Barcelona. We were lucky to get space for 6 of us and we thoroughly enjoyed the attentive service and quality food. Definitely try the signature squid with eggs. It’s a must visit place, you will not be disappointed.

The food is delicious and there are tons of options to choose from. But the place is super crowded! Actually, the whole area is jammed packed! You have to wait for people to finish their meals to grab a seat. Once seated, you give them your order and the food comes out fast. Everything is fresh and delicious.

I came to this spot with my partner and there was quite a que, which we were fine with. We were told to stand behind a specific couple who were finishing their food, and once they had finished we could sit. We were then moved, twice, to stand behind another couple, then another, by one of the chefs to let someone in front of us. On the second time that the chef let another couple push in, we complained, stating that we had been waiting for quite a while and were next in line to be seated. He first tried to argue that they had been there first, which wasn't true as we had been there for close to 40 minutes and had been standing behind the couple eating for a while, as he asked us to. When I tried to push the issue, at first he said the new couple he had stood us behind would only be a few minutes, but this clearly wasn't true as they had only just been served, in comparison to the previous two couples we had been asked to stand behind, who were getting ready to leave. When pushing the issue further, he ignored us until we left. There are plenty of brilliant places to eat in Barcelona, but the poor service of this place made it not worth the wait.

A little overpriced, but the tasty, deliciousness just makes it worth it. We waited for maybe 5-10 minutes and luckily we got a seat. It's very challenging to dine because it's in the middle of the Boqueria market which is crowded already. We sat and got their best-sellers: oxtail risotto, fried eggs with baby squid and patatas bravas. All delicious. Most especially oxtail risotto which is one of the best risottos ive had. The service is quick and easy, but the food is very tasty! Come here

We visited around 2pm (towards the end of service) and got seats within only 10 minutes of waiting. Service is quick as is the food coming out. We had the more traditional items on the menu and were impressed. Highly recommend the tomato bread, bravas and the sausage. Was a great authentic Barcelona experience

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.
