What can I say more than 'THIS IS THE PLACE" for me in Barcelona. I come to this city often and never miss EL QUIM. As my hotel is near I love eating breakfast there (Never never take a breakfast in the hotel this is much more fun) and if not I come around noon stand in line and wait... More

We ordered ribs and beef kebabs in the market...all cold. Went to sit in front of the restaurant and was told we could not sit down at that location, and pointed to my 3 young kids. I told them we just paid for lunch, but they were too ignorant/arrogant, and still told us to move. With dozens of choices nearby,... More

This has been on my mind since I left Spain!! That's how much I loved the food at El Quim. The freshness, the flavours, even how the food is handed to you over the counter, that's all such fond memories for me. We had the patatas bravas, the spanish omelette, artichoke, blood pudding (or sausage), but what I really miss... More

All I can say is it was some of the freshest and tastiest food I have ever had. The baby squid with two fried eggs at El Quim de la Bouqueria is unbelievable very simple but very good. It's not cheap but it's wort it . The Atmosphere here is also super.

We have been coming to the Boqueria for many years and we found El Quim about 5 years ago . The food is off the scale. Try the Bulls Tail or black pudding with onions its fantastic . Never fails to impress and they are such friendly staff

Good fresh seafood cooked in simple garlic and oil. Long queues to get a table, service was relatively quick once the wait for table is over. Try the seafood platter, good value and tasty.

One of many seafood and tapas bars in the market of La Boqueria. So you've wandered the market, perhaps had a juice shot, taken photos of the fish on display and the chilli stall named Jesus! Now you can pull up a stool (if you're lucky) have a drink and watch while a team of 6 cook your food, serve... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood 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.
