“Best tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Went to this place using Tripadvisor recommendation, never regretted. Enjoyed the atmosphere very much, very original, all the bottles around on the walls, the manager behing the bar. Had a selection on tapas + a beer, perfect taste experience, possibility to experiment with various foods and the personnel is very helpful with recommendations.

“Best tapas in Barcelona”

Amazing tapas bar! Traditional, authentic, serving high quality food. I just loved the atmosphere!
You have to try salmon and yoghurt combination as well as the pork cheek.

“Wonderful afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

Thanks to all the tripadvisor reviews telling us to go here, was a little bit sceptical at first being such a small place but my wife and i pushed our way to the bar and were greeted by three charming ladies who pull together to make this place so special, the tapas were exceptional, the wife had the sangria locally made in clear bottles and the belgium draught beer could not drink enough of it, very special, leave a tip and you get a spoonful of custard laced with gin, make this one of your stop off points.

“A tiny jewell”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

Walls packed to the rafters with wine and spirits. The hosts made a group of thirteen of us feel very welcome. Tapas were excellent and not expensive. Little out of way but well worth checking out

“How wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

The Guardian and the NY Times are right: Quimet & Quimet is definitely worth a visit. The owner is kind of an artist. He uses a wide range of high quality products to build the montaditos. We tried one with cream cheese, salmon, truffled honey and paté with onion chutney and one with goat cheese and dried tomato and one with this special creamy cheese and glazed marron and the one with sweet egg... They were all so lovely (each about 4-5 EUR). And when you don't like one of the ingredients, he immediately finds a matching alternative. Locals also often ordered seafood platter and seemed to be quite happy with it. Be aware that there is no opportunity to sit down in this bar and that it will be packed at lunchtime (many, many locals, too). Thank you so much, father and daughter. We had a wonderful lunch!
