New concept of tapas, reinventing our spanish beloved pepito sandwich, feminizing it and using new ingredients under this same concept. Taking care of the traditional receipts, product´s season and tapas eating way. La Pepita is a place to come for an early aperitif, some beers and bravas, late lunch or dinner, at the marble bar or in the cozy small saloon. It is a familiar restaurant, where the value for money and treat is something we take care about.

Best tapas ever

When you are in Barcelona you have to eat here one night. The food is really special and good. The atmosphere is nice.

I have lived for about a year in Barcelona and this was by far my favorite place. Staff is so friendly, food is awesome. The calamares are the best I've ever had but basically everything on the menu is great, fresh and not your 'ordinary' tapas. If you have a larger stomach than me, then do try one of their... More

Not a big place but it has a lot of character. They don’t accept reservation but we went there on a Wednesday night at 8:45 and we found a table right away. 15 minutes later the place was jammed. Tapas are very original, a sort of “fusion tapas” blending traditional tapas with French and Asiatic touch. I think we tested... More

Good tapas and service. Very nice environment. The place is very small so i do not recommend for large groups. Usually it's very busy and you will have to wait until getting a table.

We were in Barca for 4 days and this was by far the best tapas in town. Food, service and atmosphere was excellent. We will come back.

Great selection of interesting tapas and pepitas. Great service from the young lady waitress (in English) so explained the dishes to us. Place was full which says everything. Highly recommend for a value meal.

Went here with a few friends to have some tapas to share and the food was exquisite. I particularly recommend the chocolate desert with bread and olives (such a strange combination, yet it works so well!). Will return :)

I tried this place yesterday and will surely go back. Location is nothing special, but the place is nice and lively and the tapas were outstanding (I think only tried something similarly good in Barcelone in quimet y quimet, in the Poble Sec). Plates are not inexpensive but they are also not small and well worth their price. We spent... More

We absolutely loved this place so much so that we dined there twice on our 4 day stay in barcelona. Good music, buzzing atmosphere very helpful staff. The star of the show is the food with a modern take on tapas classics. The aubergine fritters are a must.

La Pepita was one of the best meals I've had in Barcelona. The menu is based on traditional tapas but with some unique changes, and then of course their "pepitas" which are sort of like small sandwiches with crackers instead of bread. The two of us had the salmon with a ginger sauce, fried artichokes, calamari, chicken croquettes, homemade hummus,... More

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
