And all the cava one can drink! Each dish was fantastic: 4 different shrimp; baby clams; sea snails; sea cucumbers (yummy)! Terrific service!

What a great restaurant, hasn't changed in 7 years. Fantastic service, 12 courses and each was better than the last. The seafood was outstanding, especially the little tiny clams and the prawns. The sea bass was beautifully cooked, my husbands steak was over cooked and uninteresting (his fault, should have ordered seafood!). Anyone complaining about this restaurant doesn't understand great,... More

The concept here is no menu. This is something we liked. Nice waiter. The food, really fresh, but simple cooked seafood. No gastronomic dishes. For the main course you could choose, fish, lamb or lobster. My brothers choose the lamb and my father and I choose the lobster. The first bite of my (half a) lobster was really salty and... More

DO NOT EAT at this place! We - a party of six - had dinner at Passadis del Pep on april 23, 2015 and four of us went down with severe food poisoning the same night. The restaurant has sort of apologized, but insists its seafood is "fresh and cooked", which it obviously is not - at least not sufficiently.... More

We took our college age daughters out for a nice dinner our final night together in Barcelona. We were welcomed with a bottle of champagne, and delicious bread. Things started off great! Soon our dinner began to be served. We were not consulted regarding preferences, or choices. Our first course was a plate of ham. My family does not eat... More

This dinner was our last meal in Spain after travelling the Andalussian Region for 10 days (Granada, Seville and Barcelona). I must say that this is simply one of the best dining experience I had in my life! This restaurant serves the freshest, best seafood in "omakase" style. In Japanese, omakase means "I'll leave it up to you, Chef." There... More

What a find. Down a small unmarked doorway, you get what is on offer. Totally fabulous food, service and atmosphere. 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.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

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.
