Overexagerated/ nada especial por precio alto

Food was ok but not the best food in Barcelona, there are many more restaurants and tapas bars in BCN where they serve same food for 1/3 of price. Noone from service speaks english. Noone explaines how this restaurant work, that they bring 8 dishes, no menus. Its about 70-80 euros without alcohol... read more

A unique and charming restaurant. This restaurant tucked away in Barcelona. It is unusual in that there is no menu and you are brought dishes according to the set plan. This is a hard core seafood restaurant that brings you excellent food. The service is attentive and warm.

I loved everything about Passadis del Pep - but as a note of caution, it's for seafood enthusiasts only. I've read some reviews expressing dismay about "having to peel our own prawns", and yes - if the idea of that bothers you, don't visit this restaurant. For me, it couldn't have been better. A seemingly endless stream of small plates... More

My wife and I arrived in Barcelona and ate at Passadis del Pep for our first dinner in Spain. What a great way to start off a great trip. The extensive and creative meal set the stage for us wanting to explore more of the food of Spain ..... and we did! All of the courses were excellently prepared. The... More

The fresh food and creativity of their cousine is an experience, what I disliked is the little portions for the high proce of them. But I would repeat if I could.

I was taken to this restaurant for dinner by a business colleague so I didn't see the bill but I don't think it's a cheap option. But in this case you probably get what you pay for. Both food and service was great. All very very fresh and perfectly cooked - shellfish overcooked is not nice ! 7 courses each... More

Hidden inside a not so good looking building in the neighborhood of Borne, Barcelona, this restaurant has satisfied guests with their fantastic seafood for more than thirty years. They have no menu, a very relaxed atmosphere in what’s got to be amongst the best service in town. The waiters crack jokes, explain the dishes and make sure you always get... More

This restaurant has a very good reputation, the reason for our visit. It has a clever marketing ploy of offering you no menu, but to trust in their choices of food on the day. The seafood is very good indeed, but there is no meat (apart from some Jamon and cheese at the start). If you don't love seafood don't... More

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
