Eat out for less in Barcelona

Posted on 28th February 2012 by

Eating out doesn’t have to cost the earth – and not paying a fortune doesn’t mean that you have to settle for second best, either. For some of the best tapas in Barcelona and an atmosphere to match, head to El Quim in the busy and beautiful Boqueria market on La Rambla. This family run business will serve you traditional Catalan dishes from just 3€ – though you may have to wait because it is so popular! The key to getting a table is to hang round one that looks like the occupants have nearly finished and jump in there quick!

If you haven’t the time to hang round, don’t worry – Pinotxo is another fabulous tapas bar in the same market so you won’t go hungry for long. Just remember, both of these places don’t open in the evenings, and in keeping with most eating places in Barcelona, or on a Sunday or Monday.
