Storyline

Sergi Roca, owner of the twelve-Michelin-starred Cool Roca restaurant in Barcelona, is a world famous chef who has it all. Pepe Leal, on the other hand, is the down-on-his-luck owner of El Chiringuito de Pepe, a beach-side greasy spoon in the town of Peñiscola. What could these two possibly have in common?

As it turns out, Sergi's father confesses during an illness that his estranged childhood friend Pepe is in fact Sergi's real father, but knows nothing of it. Wanting to make up for stealing the Italian woman his former pal loved and for hiding the truth about their son, he asks Sergi to go to Peñiscola to revive the eatery, which has been in Pepe's family for generations.

Puzzled and needing to know his true roots, Sergi moves to Peñiscola where he buys into the restaurant, claiming that he wants a new challenge, but without revealing to Pepe, or Pepe's son Vicente, the real reason. At the same time, Sergi's ex-wife sends their son Manu to spend time with him there -- a boy Sergi ...

Humor, Warmth, and Family

"Chiringuito de Pepe" is the story of Sergi Roca, a superstar of Spanish gastronomy, who leaves the big city and all the Michelin stars behind to take over a small beachfront restaurant in the seaside town of Peniscola. Why does he make such a drastic change? In the first episode, the man who raised Sergi tells him that his biological father Pepe is in dire need of help with his failing chiringuito. Sergi buys the restaurant and takes over, but without telling Pepe, Pepe's son Vicente, and nephew Dani who he really is.

The series tells the story of the ups and downs of transforming the disastrous chiringuito into a successful restaurant as well as Sergi's discovery of and connection to the family he never knew. Often the series is funny, sometimes corny, sometimes a little too silly. But while the humor is uneven at times, the theme of family always keeps the show watchable. It's one of those shows where you get to really like the characters, enough to forgive the show during some of those groaner moments when the attempts at humor miss the mark.

Sergi also gets to know his own son Manu a whole lot better because his ex-wife leaves Manu in his care. We get to see Sergi figure out how to be a father, how to turn around a failing restaurant, how to connect with the family he never knew he had, and through it all, Sergi learns to be a better person. The series is sweet, funny, and definitely worth watching.
