Yes - it's old fashioned (no spumes here) But by golly, what you get is great local ingredients. Freshly cooked seafood. Great wine. Amazing steak!! Endearing and wonderful service from very friendly owners and staff. Nowhere better for a special occasion. Best to book - especially Fri / Sat / Sunday

The food here is always good with freshly cooked vegetables etc, The service was brisk due to the table being needed again later. (We ate early as the restaurant was very busy.) This was not good and we felt a bit rushed. After dinner we had coffee and drinks by the bar. It was very busy and we felt crushed... More

We ate at Don Pepe - first time for me - on a Tuesday evening, 7 adults and a 2 year old. From the time we arrived, everything was handled perfectly, and the food was delicious. 100% recommended!

I'd heard so much about Don Pepe from friends who visit regularly. I'd heard the steak was arguably the best in town so my expectations were high. I've been fortunate enough to have visited most of the cities best restaurants over the past couple of years so was keen to find out for myself how good Don Pepe was. I... More

Whilst many restaurants change and owners move on its reassuring that every time we go back nothing is different. The food is delicious , great steaks wonderful fish...ice cold San Miguel and perhaps the best G&Ts in the city ! Don Pepes is brilliant and Jose and Maria are local treasures ! Can't wait to go back soon !!

Wonderful food, beautifully prepared. The staff/owners are lovely and the food is authentic and of the highest quality. Over the last 12 years I have spent at least 2 months per year living and working in Northern Spain. I have found some wonderful restaurants locally and Don Pepe's compares with the best of them. It is not 'Fine Dining' as... More

Came here for my birthday with my husband and 10 year old daughter last Saturday. We were running late but phoned ahead and they were fine. When we arrived the place was busy and everyone seemed very happy chatty and comfortable. We were seated with menus and ordered 2 (very generous) gin and tonics. My daughter was made a fuss... More
