Why We Love It: 

Every inch of space on the walls has writing on it, but don’t be fooled – this place takes tapas seriously. Their patatas bravas are some of the best we’ve had, and they’re known for their vermouth. It’s a great tapas place without pretense.

Menu Recommendations:

  • Patatas bravas, or “bravas” as they’re commonly known here, are a staple of Spanish tapas, and are excellent here.
  • They also have a “mediodía” or “menu of the day”, which is a condensed menu of three courses for around €14, if you’re in the neighborhood in the afternoon. It’s not far from Sagrada Familia or Park Güell – both are highlights of any trip to the city.

Other Tips:

  • La Pepita doesn’t take reservations, so make sure you go early, or plan to wait.
  • They also own a delightful bar a couple doors down where you can wait until a table frees up. They’ll send a server to get you, if you’re willing to wait.
