Plaça de les Olles, 8, 08003 Barcelona, Spain
Cal Pep doesn’t do reservations so it’s best to plan ahead and be prepared to wait. The restaurant is rather small, diners sit on high stools at a bar that is also an open kitchen. This cramped space creates a welcoming, casual atmosphere but more than that – an overly delicious smell of grilled everything in the air! *(There is a dining room in the back, but the real action is up front and it’s worth the wait). Pep died a few years ago, but left the restaurant in great hands. He is missed, but the food is still every bit as good.
