Pinotxo's for breakfast/brunch is a must wen in Barcelona. The Boqueria is one of the world's great food markets (and it is a real market, prices are good, selection excellent - we often shopped there when we lived in Barcelona as it was cheaper than our neighborhood market) and there is no better was to experience it than eating at Pinotxo's. It is always crowded - be prepared to wait to be seated at one of the few stools. And don't expect a line to form, Spaniards are notorious for not lining up. Just make sure a waiter knows you are waiting for a stool. I recommend the tortilla, the garbanzos, and the butifarra, all excellent.

We arrived as two people were vacating their seats - it is very busy around this bar. Much of the enjoyment of our lunch was due to the atmosphere around the bar. With the exception of one dish (which was much too fatty for our taste) the tapas were very good. However, the food was far from inexpensive.

Judging by most reviews many people have had a positive experience here - this was the worst quality food that we have had in our 4 weeks in The UK, France and Spain. We both had beef cheeks - one dish was 90% lumps of fat and the other dish about 33% fat. We noticed that locals and other tourists who ordered beef cheeks left heaps of thick fat on their plates. For what you get it's overpriced and really just a tourist trap. It is not anywhere near the standards, value and prices of Pintxos bars in San Sebastián and there is clearly far better quality and value in Barcelona away fromLas Ramblas. The waiter gave most diners 1 and a half rolls but charges for two rolls - be warned they often seem to make 'mistakes' on their bills.

We were lucky enough to grab a seat just as two people were leaving. The crowd was thick, and the seating tight, but the food was pretty good. The elderly gentleman tending the espresso machine was a hoot. Good for breakfast, but if you want another cool (and maybe less crowded experience), definitely try Bar Central at the other end. Excellent, fresh seafood!
