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.

Sociable staff and fantastic food!!

The family had a great late night "snack" that turned into a huge meal as we wanted to keep trying. Octopus was great. Carpaccio fantastic for boys' first taste. And then corn ice cream with carmel corn - YUM!!!

Worth the wait. Everything I had was good and the service was kind and friendly. It's on the more expensive end of the scale in Barcelona, but it all felt worth it. The croquettes with iberico ham were excellent. The chocolate dessert with olive oil is surprisingly good. It's a lovely place.

Eating tapas is so much fun. Little bombs of flavor they were. They were so delicious. The owner is very welcoming. Fast services. Just perfect

My husband and I loved La Pepita. These were by far the best tapas we had our whole trip. The favorite was foie gras with white chocolate - awesome. Our server was very helpful in explaining the menu and providing suggestions. Very busy place so go early - 830 or you won't get a table!

The food at la Pepita is excellent and stands out compared to most tapas restaurants with truly unique dishes. 3 examples: - their octopus is a reinterpretation of the octopus a la gallega but way better. The mash potatoes replace the boiled potatoes and the octopus is seasoned with a spicy green sauce. Must try! - the artichoke comes with... More

The reviews are accurate, a great little find, and in some ways a typical Catalan place, bright, fresh, and some unusual dishes. Some quite traditional, definitely worth stopping by for a few bites and brews. Even our 80 year old Catalan cousins loved it, and they grew up around the corner. We particularly liked the fish dishes and do try... More

One of the few tapas places that are open early for dinner. Food was surprisingly good. Not a traditional tapas place; dishes have a modern fusion take yet unforced and truly delicious. Friendly service and a lively atmosphere. Highly recommend!

We went here twice and it was our "reserve" for the third time if we had not have found another place to eat. Staff recognised us on our second visit and even remembered the wine we had. Try the smoked sardine - wow!

Sofia and her husband are an incredible team, the "leave it to us" chefs selection was astounding, suggest you don't eat for some time beforehand as its a lot of food, but oh sooooo good.

Staying in Gracia

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.
