Apparently the tiny, no seats, Quimet y Quimet is in every tourist guide. This is good and bad. Good, because the tapas they create from behind the miniscule bar is good – some of it is even great. Bad, because the crowd is almost entirely tourists (including this boy, I guess), and the atmosphere can seem somewhat lacking.
I’ve seen Chinese tourists drinking Coke and screwing up their noses at some of the food, and even an American couple who arrived wheeling suitcases in. My advice? Pop in for a bite and a drink or two, and head off for a proper meal elsewhere.
