Such an amazing "wine & cheese" experience! Quiet ambience in the middle of Barri Gòtic. 110% recommended. Francesc (owner) is so friendly.

Great little wine bar in the centre of Barcelona. When I say 'little' I mean little but it really added to the friendly atmosphere. Fantastic wine and tasty tapas (in particular the artisan cheese from the lovely cheese shop next door). Loved it!

We went to this wine bar for a glass of wine, what a great place. Small and quaint with a limited but great selection of wine. It had character and a great host. I will be going back this week while I'm here.

We accidentally stumbled in this quirky little wine bar as it just started to rain. So glad we did. Two choices of white wine, so decided to have one of each! The chappy who runs it (on behalf of a Scottish lady) certainly knows his stuff too! We also were given free tapas and made to feel very welcome. Can... More

Imagine if you owned your own little wine bar and were from Barcelona, what you would get would be Zim. This place is owned by a gentleman who remembers the way wine bars used to be. Small selection of quality wines? Check. Free tapas with a glass of wine? Check. Tallies written on the bar top? Check. Tiny place that... More

If you looking for a cozy small place to have some tasty vine with friends Zim is what do you need. Very small ( I think maximum 12 people can be there in the same time) with just one bartender who will serve you small snacks and cheese. On the plate you will find some different types of cheese which... More

You hardly notice the bar when you walk by, Hidden behind a door and a small window with room for maybe 12 people inside. The owner will gladly recomend a wine suitable for a plate of coldcuts or cheese. The sobrasada is delicious and the cheeses come from the equally small cheese shop next door (make sure to buy some... More

This tiny bar is full of character and has some really good wine and cheese. The owner likes a chat and it's a bit expat/ touristy now but still fun
