The best Spanish cava which signifies the end to any more tourist activities for the day. Our waiter Vincent was the best - fun, friendly, and generous with the refills! Get in early. You won't be disappointed.

The food was fantastic, but is very overpriced. I think the food was great very original and authentic food. There seafood is exquisite, the quality of the the food is great, but be prepare to splurge. We have a Luis Cañas, tempranillo wine that was great.

My wife and I had a memorable experience at Passadis. It may feel a bit expensive (eur80 per person) but in the end it is well worth it given how many amazing dishes are served. And you also get a free bottle of cava. Staff was so wonderful they kept serving us free cava!!! We must have eaten 15 dishes... More

I visited Passadis del Pep with some co-workers and friends this past February and had a great time. The atmosphere, staff, and experience was among the best I've ever experienced. Some of the dishes, like their Jamon Iberiza and Octopus, were to die for. However, other dished were merely okay, like their Lobster which was hard to get out of... More

As expected. And that is good. More food than expected. Loved the different shells and shellfish. Well prepared. The lamb leg was very tasty, but too much food. A good thing I guess. . You will not be disappointed as long as you don't focus on the price tag. Go there If you find it. Pretty hard to locate.

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 or dessert per person. Other restaurants that... 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

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.
