Passadis del Pep or Cal Pep?

Are they sufficiently different to merit a visit to both? I already have reservations for Passadis, and have heard from friends that Cal Pep is amazing, so I don't want to miss out on an unforgettable experience, but is there really a reason to go out of my way to try both?

Also, I'm wondering what time Barcelonans eat dinner. I know that the Spanish eat dinner much later than we do in America, but I've heard that this is most extreme in Madrid, and that in Catalonia, they eat at an earlier hour than in the rest of Spain. Any insight you can give is appreciated.

  1. I have only been to Cal Pep and it is indeed amazing.

    1. I ate at (or after) 9pm every night I was in Barcelona. (Both times) There are a number of places that I ate in that did not open until 9. One night I needed to eat at 8 (long day travelling) and places were pretty much empty.

      1. Don't miss Cal Pep - go there for lunch! We usually ate around 9, but were often the 1st people in the restaurant.

        1. I'll be in Barcelona this weekend, so any further discussion on this would be great.
