Staff at Pepitos are really friendly and make you feel very welcome. Food was very nice and price was reasonable. Only let down was it took a very long time for the food to arrive when it didn't seem particularly busy. But worth visiting nonetheless.

Visited this restaurant for the first time last weekend and was impressed by the service and food. The starters we tried were very tasty and the mixed skewers tasted excellent. Would go back.
