This restaurant was suggested in our guide book. We went for lunch and had to wait 30 min and it is a very small area. The atmosphere was very fun at the tapas bar and the food was great. Next time, I will pick what I want instead of having the chef choose for me. He was pretty heavy on... More

So this place was reccommened to us by a tour guide. Other than a great place to eat, we didnt know what to expect. It was mind-blowing. The waiter gives you basic options: seafood, beef, red or white wine, then brings you what comes out of the kitchen. It was a blast to see what would come next. You have... More

In this visit to Barcelona we went early to get a seat, after a 30 minutes waiting we tried the best tapas in my life. Do not expect to read a menu, just eat what they recommend, and leaves room for delicious crema catalana. Is not a good choice for vegetarians

We went in, asked for suggestions, the guys said leave it up to them... It was all surprise food, and absolutely fantastic. The clams... Omg... They were the most amazing thing ever.... The others were pretty good, but the clams by far were the best. Expensive (cost us $50aud each for lunch) but we were full and it was delicious.

I heard about Cal Pep a couple of years ago when I stayed in Barcelona but never had the chance to go. This time I went there with a couple of local friends and I really liked it. I was told that you should come in the early evening as it gets really full afterwards. Food was great, service had... More

A group of 11 went here for dinner and it was very fun. The friendly weiters told us that he would serve us a selection of food and wine. The food was excellent and we drink a lot. We even had to tell him to stop opening bottles of wine. At the end 35€ per person, which I consider cheap... More

We joined the queue as they opened for lunch, but as the bar filled up, they seated us in the back dining room. We ate several tapas, and a small plate of paella followed by meat course and pudding, 6 beers, a bottle of decent white and coffees for four was €177. Good food and atmosphere. Better value is Sensi... More

Had lunch with my family at Cal Pep. We were on foot but found the place using a map. The restaurant is in a corner and may not be easily visible. It was full at lunch time and we had a 10 minute wait. The restaurant was small and had a counter table and about 6 tables at the back.... More

A friend suggested this restaurant and I've never disliked one of her picks until now... The servers seemed nice enough and they were quick to offer me another plate and a refill on my wine. I wasn't terribly hungry and was having an early dinner, so I wanted to keep things light. I had three dishes and two glasses of... More
