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.

Fun little restaurant with good and fast service and a great and different menu. Everything was delicious. Real standouts were the sea bass with strawberry, the pan con tomate, gazpacho, beef carpaccio and green salad with snow peas. Great vibe and very reasonable prices!

We found this when we wanted somewhere close to our hotel on our first night in Barcelona (late flight) and what a great little find.
To be honest it as the best food we had all holiday. It's a small place but oozes atmosphere. As a veggie my friend was really pleased with the choice too.
We had tapas and then a signature 'pepita' a really delicious posh sandwich (it was way nicer than I make it sound)
Really helpful and attentive staff who recommended food for us.
Would say its definitely worth a visit.

Went to La Pepita on a recent girls trip to Barcelona and somehow it managed to surpass the reviews that had made us want to visit! Menu is amazing, food was some of the best I have ever eaten and the service was absolutely exceptional!

We had a short wait in their neighbouring bar for a table on a busy Saturday night - when they came and got us we were able to take our drinks through as we were mid round. We had a mixture in our party of the tapas - the sea bass ceviche with avocado cream and balsamic strawberries is a MUST but so is most of the menu - and some of the Pepita's which were the most divine meal in themselves and SUCH good value! The staff were incredibly friendly but also bent over backwards to accommodate my gluten intolerance and a friends pregnancy related needs. Can't recommend this place highly enough and cannot wait for an opportunity to return to Barcelona to visit again

This place was recommended by our hotel - and I was reluctant - but the food was great. Also a very quaint and charming place in one of my favorite areas of Barcelona. We did have to wait a bit - even on a Tuesday night - but they have another bar two doors down and you can wait there.

I highly recommend.

Great atmosphere and delicious tapas at La Pepita. The restaurant gets busy, but we put our name on the waiting list and had a drink in La Cava bar a couple of doors down before were called when our table was ready. We ate at the bar and really enjoyed the delicious tapas, good service and buzzy atmosphere.
