Everything is totally fresh in this small tapas bar in Mercado La Boqueria. We enjoyed the mussels, they were excellent. If in doubt, ask the waiter for recommendations on the fish/meat of the day. The place is fun, not to be missed.

Every time we go to buy some food here, we stop for lunch at this place - it's wonderful. Nothing fancy - at all - about the seating, but every plate is amazing. Yummmmm

Located in the fabulous Boqueria in the La Ramblas area of Barcelona this family owned and run bar is a must. Sit down for a snack and a drink and you will get a history of Catalonia and the Boqueria from three generations behind the...More

Located in Mercat de la Boqueria this is one of the those cultural touch stones that is really worth doing. We were fortunate to be served by the elder statesmen himself. He was very friendly and energetic which is quite remarkable considering his age. He's...More

Loved the Buzz of being in the market, food was okay however they forgot mine and only after waiting a while and reminding them did it arrive.I'd recommend it for the experience of eating in the Market only and not for the food itself.

Had to wait for a bit before we got seated since they only have very limited seating spaces (it was a bar-concept). Food was really good - but we had better in Mercat de la Boqueria.

I was given the name of this establishment by a well-travelled cousin. The problem with eating based on recommendations, especially for a place that's been in business for a long time, is that although the food is undoubtedly good, you're not sure whether it was...More

Really good place in the market - open really early in the morning and close around 4pm. We were here twice and tried many different dishes. Try the chickpea and bean dishes. The acidity in these dishes is so refreshing and help balancing out the...More

We were wondering around the market in the morning and looking for a place to eat. We ended up coming here after I saw the trip advisor sign (thanks everyone). We quickly got a seat and asked for a menu. The server told me there...More

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

The joint has 10-12 bar-seats. It is kind of open air and right on the one of the entry points of the cover bazaar Boucheria. Many people come in and out and many are quietly fighting:) behing these high chairs to find a... More

Is the Bar Pinotxo open on Sundays? Their website says so, but several postings here say it's only open when the market it (and the market is closed on Sundays). Also, does anyone know if the Market will be open on Monday, October 12, National Spain Day?
