We had to wait 10 minutes for two seats but it was worth it. We had mussels starter, seafood platter and bulls tail risotto. All of it was extremely tasty and it was a fun atmosphere in the market. We also had a glass of sangria each which was great. Cost was around 65 euros but was well worth it!

Went there early for breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed or food and experience there. It is an unassuming place that you wouldn't think had great food but this place does. We had squid with ink which was cooked well and eggs with mushrooms was outstanding.

We ate breakfast here twice. First time we had the tortilla and patatas bravas. The second time we had bocadillas. Both breakfasts were great. Fun and entertaining watching the orderly chaos of six people putting together hundreds of plates in a very short time. We also had lunch. We had the squids and the sardines. Very tasty! We will be... More

This place was recommended to us by a total stranger sitting beside us in another restaurant and what a recco! Lucky for us that artichokes are in season and the artichoke chips here are just awesome! We also had scallops and mussels. All amazingly good.

Definitely one of the best spots to grab food in the market. Amazing how 6-7 people can work behind the tiny bar! We went for breakfast and it was yummy. Looking just for eggs and a more typical 'American" breakfast and found it here. The coffee was delicious too! Hard part is getting a seat at the bar! Don't expect... More

El Quim is a not to be missed place for breakfast! The food is great (simple ham and fried eggs or you can get much more exotic), the coffee is aromatic, fresh and hot. The atmosphere of la boqueria is electric! Nice way to start the day. Not cheap, but places with celebrity chefs in even in the most modest... More

Even months after visiting this place we still speak about the experience! Fantastic! Even after waiting, standing behind a crowd for close to 2 hours, it was worth it! Chiparones, Wild mushroom with Foie Gras, Griled Steak...EVERYTHING was outstanding. The staff was toasting and dancing behind the counter...a truly memorable experience.

You can't go to the la Boqueria market without having a meal here. It's a sin! Sit down, order yourself a cava and their 2 fried eggs specialty with the baby squid. If you can order another dish, add on the Incredible Cod of the Day! Both were exceptional 5 star dishes. The bf had the boneless braised bull tail... More

Truly delicious lunch in the bustling Boqueria. Food was excellent, but a little expensive. Will definitely return.

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.
