bcn reservation october 31 cal pep

My mother and I plan to eat at Cal Pep on Monday, October 31 but they only take reservations for parties of 4 or more. Are there any other couples in Barcelona in the same predicament? We could team up and try for a reservation together. Message me here if interested!

  1. Unless they've changed their policy, they have never taken reservations for the front counter seating. They do take reservation for the back dining room which is Siberia. Did they give you the impression that the reservation for 4 or more is for the counter? Otherwise, if you show up about half hour before they open their door, you won't have to wait..

    1. PBSF already gave the best info.
      The restaurant must be talking about the reservation for 4 or more, in the back room, the least desirable section of the resto. Believe us, the counter is much much more fun.
      I agree that if there are only 2 of you, just go - without reservation - shortly before opening. We usually go 15 minutes before and are seated when the resto opens.

      1. Just to add, if the reservation is for the back dining room, don't bother with it. Besides being completely segregated from all the action, I don't believe the back dining room is ever fully booked. Of the times I have sat at the counter, I've seen only one party, a group of young Chinese men, being shown back there.
