El Quim de la Boqueria is truly a family business: mom, dad and son serve traditional catalan dishes around the bar when there is space.


Even the regulars have to wait for a place to sit, as El Quim is a stall in the most beautiful and bustling market in Barcelona: the Boqueria market.


Boquerones, chipirones, arroz negro.. From 3€ to 9€... Best tapas around..



If there is no table for you, go to Pinotxo another tapas bar in the same Boqueria market.

T2 No smoking and no other food shops
Really not happy with this airport. Travel assisstance takes forever to get to you, language barriers and you're not advised of any area restrictions or limitations before during or after security. Security rush you through with"""rapidos"" which honestly made me want to cry with all the attention while struggling with a toddler in pushchair and autistic elder child . To find out then travel assistance don't stay with you, they leave and come back just before boarding if they bother to. Can't smoke or buy any other food other than sandwiches which where spotted with black bits?? Cant smoke after security. the last leg of our holiday and its been shite

  2. yep a good one - boccatino (16 Feb 2015 - 10:15)

    perfect.. we loved being ther like locals eventhought we had to wait to seat. A great market, a crazy city.

  3. a book - tracy (22 Jan 2014 - 09:30)

    The chef wrote a book about el Quim.. The story of el Quim and of course about the best receipts. Really cool and a nice story. You cook tapas at the market and you became a celebrity ;-)

  4. What a surprise! - Nancy J (4 Oct 2012 - 09:00)

    We came across El Quim de la Boqueria while walking through the market off the Ramblas in Barcelona. Had a great lunch, grilled shrimp (whole) and octopus with beer and wine....the best! Hectic during prime time, its worth the wait for a stool.
    No comfort creatures but the food was fabulous! Not cheap either....but worth it.

  5. j'adore ce petit bar - virgile (8 Aug 2012 - 21:15)

    une bonne adresse. Mille mercis

  6. Elquim - Nicole (26 Mar 2012 - 11:45)

    Trop cher pour le service et les plats proposés. Hygiène douteuse.
    Le folklore ne justifie pas qu'on prenne le touriste pour un pigeon.
    À éviter.

  7. El Quim - Flavio (1 Feb 2012 - 19:30)

    Cucina senza emozione, seduti su sgabelli al freddo, 4 piatti, 3 birre, una pessima cava ( prosecco ) conto 74,80 euro, cava offerta perché non mi era piaciuta. Infatti non uno spagnolo ma solo stranieri!!! Da evitare

  8. un super moment - miam miam (9 Oct 2011 - 19:00)

    belle adresse.. c'est vraiment charmant et délicieux. quelle belle ville!

  9. absolument charmant - miam (22 Aug 2011 - 10:30)

    des tapas aux petits oignons dans un marché débordant de couleurs et d'animations. Super!

  10. El quim - samia (8 Aug 2011 - 21:00)

    nous y avons dejeune il y a deux semaines: malgré la cohue de l endroit,( apres tout on est au centre d un marché), le temps d attente était plus que correct (nous etions 5) et le dejeuner etait excellent; A conseiller vivement pour la qualité de ses tapas et l ambiance

  11. Enfin de l'authentique - José et Emilie (19 Mar 2011 - 18:45)

    Dans le superbe décor du marché de la Boquéria, une équipe souriante et sympatique nous a servi (enfin) une cuisine typique et authentique. Enfin, parce qu'on cherchait reelement ce genre d'endroit tant pour son ambiance que pour ses tapas.... Et voila El quim..... Nous avons tres bien mangé, tres bien bu, et enormement rigolé avec eux et tous nos voisins de comptoir, et tout ça pour une somme raisonable au vu du prix de Barcelone. Rien de plus à dire, juste soyez ouvert à eux et ils le seront d'autant plus..... A ne pas manquer (PS: evitez le petit dej avant et gavez vous plutot des tapas d' El Quim.... nous en salivons tjrs a+++)

  12. quel beau souvenir!! - Simon T (23 Nov 2010 - 02:56)

    un grand souvenir, une vraie ambiance de marché, un peu d'attente pour avoir une place mais ensuite un grand bonheur. une cuisine simple et délicieuse. Ce ne fut pas cher. juste parfait. Je le conseille à tous pour ses poissons du marché!

  13. tout le charme des tapas - yvonne (25 Jul 2010 - 19:45)

    ce bistrot à tapas est juste parfait... effectivement c'est une histoire familiale. Les habitués sont tordants.. quand aux petits plats on a simplement envie de revenir tous les jours pour les gouter tous. Un petit bonheur à ne pas manquer.

  14. EL QUIM - [email protected] (24 Jul 2010 - 14:46)

    Trés déçu par EL QUIM et pour cause : j ai pris une assiette de jambon ,quand je l'ai vue arriver j ai cru que c'était pour l'apéro : 10 tranches de 3cm de long sur 1 de large épaisseur 1mm : 15€ ! De même 8 soi-disant gambas à l'ail ( plutôt des gros bouquets ) 19€ et tout ça sans le sourire .J ai tout arrêté , me suis rabattu sur le PAPITU ( derriére la BROQUERIA )pas mieux et en plus ils m ont compter une bierre que je n'avais pas bue !Horrible journée pour mon porte-feuille point de vue bouffe .Je vous conseille EL JARDI , 10€ entrée/plat/dessert , au milieu d'un parc ,à 2 pas de la broqueria , 56 carrer del hospital .

    di ritorno di Barcellona, questo tapas bar è una piccola maraviglia

  16. El Quim Barcelona - tim (13 Oct 2009 - 21:00)

    Love Boqueria market.. and in this market you have to go to El Quim if you have a chance to get a seat.. friendly and delicious..

  17. Wonderful and authentic - Bonita van Lier (18 May 2008 - 18:51)

    I went to El Quim because a friend in Holland told me it was great and authentic. He was perfectly right: I enjoyed every single bite! While you are seated you have this wonderful view on the market. Treat yourself on the purest Spanish flavours you can get in this part of town.

  18. Ahhhh El quim!!! - Oscar Aparicio (30 Jan 2008 - 23:17)

    Estube en el Quim la primera semana de noviembre en mi visita a Barcelona. Probé 4 platos, más 2 cañas, me traje de recuerdo el papel impreso que dan de mantel y lo tengo pegado en mi refrigreador. " El Quim...el arte de comer en un taburete". Definitivamente, fue algo impreionante estar en el Quim y saborerar sus deliciosas comidas. Volveré...de eso no hay ninguna duda! Les saluda Oscar Aparicio, San Salvador, El Salvador. América Central.

  20. El Quim is king - John (1 Jun 2007 - 15:44)

    One great souvenir from Barcelona... go there.. taste every dish.. El Quim is king.

  21. J'adore - Robert (11 May 2007 - 13:52)

    Les couteaux à la plancha sont un véritable délice !

  22. el quim - peter (20 Dec 2006 - 12:19)

    el quim is great.. delicious... beside the fact that you can buy what ever you want in the bocqueria market at the same time..
