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.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

La Pepita is one of the best restaurants in Spain! The service, food and wine list were all amazing and we enjoyed every bite! Highly recommend making reservations because this restaurant will become more and more popular as all the 5 star ratings it will earn. Every single tapa dish you order will be wonderful - you can't go wrong. The corn/popcorn ice cream intrigued me so of course we ordered that and it was so good. Thank you La Pepita for a true Spanish tapa experience.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We went there twice during out 5 evenings in Barcelona. Everything we ordered was great. The vibe was great. The first evening we had a booked table for 10 people and tapas were just piled on the table as fast as it disappeared into hungry bodies. People were queing at the door to come in on both evenings. We had to sit at the bar the second evening we went there. This did not disappoint either - we chatted with other customers and staff and had a great time. We left at well after midnight! I DEFINITELY recommend La Pepita for great food and a good time.

“Amazing tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We read the reviews on trip advisor and had high expectations. Luckily we weren't dissapointed. The food was so good we had to go back another night during our vacation. The restaurant was busy and full so I recommend that you reserve a table.

“La Pepita es mi Favorita”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

This was hands down the best place that I ate in all of Barcelona. Sofia is the most gracious host I have ever met. This is ultimately reflected in the service and quality of the food. The food is so flavorful. The Pepitas are not to be missed and there is one for everyone's taste whether you are a vegetarian or meat lover. I had the aubergine fritters which had a lovely smoky flavor and texture. Inthen followed with a sampler of Belotta hams and pan tomate which melted in my mouth. This was followed by a Jamon Pepita which was delicious. To top it off I had the carmel corn ice cream which was incredible. All of this was accompanied with Sangria and Mojito's. do yourself a favor and don't leave Barcelona without eating here at least once. I eagerly await my return. Thanks Sofia!
