Yes, this place was packed and there are some bites that can be tasty, but it all stems from canned seafood...which is a tradition in Spain - hence the popularity of this bar. It's a SMALL place and trust me that striking out while ordering...More

This was my favourite hidden gem for some wine & selection of meats for two. Great service and nice relaxed atmosphere. Everyone should try this place for tapas 😍

Enjoy the great atmosphere while you sample some of the best tapas we've had in Spain. Come early and be prepared to queue in the street. Worth the wait.

If you're a group (more than 20) I strongly reccomend you to go to Opera Samfaina in orther to get a general impression of Catalonia (about tapes). Quimet & Quimet is "good" for couples, lately is more people with cameras... More
