Quimet y Quimet


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.

Bianco Noir Bistrot

More a bar than bistro really, though there are some actual meals to be had along with an interesting selection of bar snacks, leaning towards more traditional French fare. The home-made hipster furniture is taken a bit too far, so you’re likely to find one half of your table reclined in a discarded sofa, while the others are on straight-backed dining chairs. Just about gets away with it though, as the staff really know their stuff, and the food and beverage offering is actually quite good.
