An oasis in the bustling gastronomic experience of La Boqueria Market. A tough seat to muscle during lunch hours but waiting 15-20 min is well worth it. It's a lively experience just to be in the market but once you have a seat at El...More

Little place in the middle of the boqueria market. The food is great. The atmosphere is great. Food is fresh and tasty.

Small, busy spot in the middle of Mercat de la Boqueria, a must visit foodie heaven. First come, first served, but you must stand behind seated diners and wait for someone to leave. No numbers and no reservations. Somewhat barbaric, but well worth the wait!...More

So a heads up, in order to sit down at El Quim, you simply stand behind someone until they're finished, feels a little territorial but hold out, because the tapas is worth it. Our overwhelming feeling about this place was tasty! The padron peppers (which...More

We visited this place twice! Tapas, seafood, veggie, meat dishes...you name it they are all very yummy! As mentioned by other customers you need to wait behind people to get a seat. You will then have people standing behind you and watch you eat because...More

We go here at least once every time we visit Barcelona. It's well placed in the market, a bit pricey which is to be expected but always great! We had the fried eggs with baby squid - absolutely yummy! We also had the slab of...More

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
