This diminutive tapas bar, run by the 4th generation of the Quims, is a must visit stop in Barcelona. It accommodates only 15-20 people at a standing bar and several small standing tables - very popular with both locals and tourists alike. It is a rare occasion when there aren't any people also standing outside with a glass of wine, patiently waiting to get in - but don't worry - everything goes fast here - turn around is about half an hour.

Many of the ingredients have been cooked and canned by the restaurant in olive or trufle oil - of the highest quality and utterly delicious. I had several things and one of my favorites was a montaditos - an open faced sandwich - I got one with a combination of scallops and caviar on tomato jam. In spite of the high quality of the food and popularity of the restaurant, prices are quite reasonable - I had three orders of tapas and a glass of cava for around 10 euros (US$14). Open for both lunch and dinner and closed on Sundays.
