Description: New concept of tapas, reinventing our spanish beloved pepito sandwich, feminizing it and using new ingredients under this same concept. Taking care of the traditional receipts, product´s season and tapas eating way. La Pepita is a place to come for an early aperitif, some beers and bravas, late lunch or dinner, at the marble bar or in the cozy small saloon. It is a familiar restaurant, where the value for money and treat is something we take care about.

“Yummy Tapas with an Authentic Atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

My husband and I stopped at La Pepita during our stay in Barcelona. It was a small, authentic tapas restaurant that was VERY crowded! Needless to say, it was a great sign that the place was packed. We went on a Monday evening and had to wait about 45 minutes (we grabbed a few drinks next door while waiting). The service was good, the wait staff was helping in telling us how many tapas or order and what may be to our liking! Overall the food was good and we enjoyed just about everything. My only complaint is that we felt slightly rushed as the restaurant is small and they were probably trying to seat as many people as possible.

“Delightful tapas with a modern touch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We went to Pepita because of the reviews I read on TripAdvisor and they were right. The tapas were simply delightful... They reinterpreted classic tapas in a modern, subtle way, keeping the core and sometimes adding new flavours. We just loved the galician octopus and the aubergines with goat cheese. We also took a Pepita each (for those of you who did not go their yet, their main course is called Pepita - a sort of bruschetta withe very slim bread slices and different toppings). Although Pepitas were good, I would only take tapas now for the entire evening.
Besides, the service was very good and prompt although the bar was really-really full.
Keep up the wonderful work, guys!

“Amazing Tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We stumbled across La Pepita after a waiter at a nearby restaurant that was totally full, recommended we try La Pepita

In short we had stunning service matched with stunning tapas. The wine was superb and the waiter had some great knowledge and recomendations to match our tapas.

She expertly crafted a wide range of tapas for us to try and matched the wine to suit.

Some of the flavours were simply outstanding like the Sea Bass and Strawberries. WOW

I cant recommend La Pepita for anyone wanting some superb tapas and wines
