The place is very small and crowded and you need to stand at the tables. I went there alone, therefore I had no problem with this situation. I really enjoyed the tapas and the red wine which I had there. Highly recommended.

Nice bar with good atmosphere and well chosen wines in a very interesting part of town . Prices reasonable. Standing was not an issue although we suspect the reasons for having no stools are strictly commercial. Service was professional from the team behind the bar....More

This is the home of original tapas and they are fabulous. A very small space but give them your favorite food choices and let them create a perfect bite. Great beer and wine to accompany your apps!

A quirky little tapas bar which serves a wide range of freshly made cold tapas in a great venue. Absolutely heavenly food! Mostly standing room only, but that wasn't an issue. Highly recommended.

Wow, this is a tiny establishment that puts out a wide variety of tasty specialties. There are very few standing tables. If you get there right after it opens, the tables are likely to be filled and it will feel crowded. If you wait 45...More

I have been there a couple of times before - now back with the family. I love it. Very cramped and a good local atmosphere (many tourists, though). Good tapas - mostly out of tins/cans. Good wine. Not to miss. 20 minutes walk from the...More

Visiting our friends in Barcelona and coming here was the best we did during our time in Barcelona. The Quimet bar is quick, attentive and very delicious. The wines, especially the half-dry we tried there as excellent. Same goes for the tapas, very good, as...More
