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

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.

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.
