After reading all reviews we were expecting to have an amazing culinary experience. The place it’s really charming and it might be worth seeing it. But it was packed, we had to queue outside, and the we ate with people rushing us. A bit overpriced as well

Unfortunately, I got food poisoning here this week. I ate only fish dishes and have no idea which one caused the food poisoning. I had both shellfish and normal fish. Otherwise, I had really enjoyed the atmosphere here, I had been here a few years ago so I enjoyed going back. I was surprised to find that it was 98%... More

We ate here one evening recently with friends from England, who had been recommended by other friends to go. My wife and I have lived in Spain for many years and speak fluent castellano and hence any problems we had were not a result of poor communication - all the waiters we encountered spoke both catalan and castellano.

I was taken here by a colleague. We waited a few minutes for a seat at the bar, but it turned out to be well worth it. The tapas were amazing. There is no other word for it. Friendly helpful staff, great house wine and just wonderful peppers, calamares, monkfish, patatas bravas, ... Delicious. Definitely on the "go back again... More

Arrived Monday night around 9, stood by the bar for 10 minutes with couple of beers/damms, and got to see what looked best. The clams, monkfish, green peppers, omelet, tomato bread, fried calamari - all were excellent and as fresh as possible. Price was high, as noted, but it was a terrific final meal.

Very traditional and cosy tapas bar. We have had tapas assortment. The food are delicious but a bit generous for salt. The price a bit expensive but it is worthy to live this experience.

One of my favorite restaurants ever. No menu. Just let them pick whatever the tapas they think you would like and enjoy.

Top tapas in Barcelona, ever! Queued up for 15 mins, wasn't too long, first time for us to see queue up to dine in Europe! Seafood tapas were unavoidable, you must order

Had been told about Cal Pep by a few friends and decided to give it a go. Glad we did but won't go back. If you are early enough you get first sitting - otherwise you stand behind the people at the bar waiting your turn. Having people standing straight behind you waiting for someone to leave is a little... More
