This place is 100% tourist central, but the food is honestly very good, if a little gimmicky at times. They are probably best known for a hybrid between hamburger and a McMuffin with foie gras. It's awesome, but it's been around for a while and is definitely an eye roll-inducing item. But you are a tourist, after all, so you're allowed to indulge a little and give in to the comforts of like-minded people. This is the place we go when we don’t mind a crowd, don’t want to think, and know we’re just going to get easy, fun, delicious tapas. Cal Pep serves a similar purpose - if you want to try one pretty-place that your fellow tourists have probably told you about, these are your two choices.

If you want to get into Tickets, plan your reservation very far in advance. It's an excellent tapas restaurant with very fun vibes.
Although it can be gimmicky, Cal Pep is very good. You'll probably see a lot of tourists, but you'll be distracted enough by the good tapas to care.
