Booked a table of 10 and the restuarant is bigger than I thought actually and decorated with a Mexican theme. The group all had starters and most had the topped nachos which were slightly underwhelming to be honest. Some had the combo nachos and the other having special nachos and the appearance and taste really weren't too different although both were ok. Mains definitely saved the day however and one of the party had the steak mole and the sauce / steak was to die for! I has the grilled sea food which was salmon and prawns, the bbq flavour really adding to the meal. Seeing that we were celebrating also, my partner and I we given a shot and tequila and out came the hats!! A great touch!! We will defo come back as we did enjoy ourself!

Hola Carl H,

Muchas gracias for taking the time to write your review. It does explain on the menu that the differences between the Combo and Special nachos are that the Special nachos are solely topped with beef and are served with refried beans so the taste and appearance will not be too dissimilar to the Combo nachos.

We are thrilled to hear that you all thoroughly enjoyed the mains however, and were treated to a Pepitos celebration! We hope to look forward to welcoming you again soon!

Food was amazing. We visited for a friends birthday and we're given a lovely huge sombrero hat for the birthday girl - I can't wait to go back. It's the kind of place to get food envy as every dish that came out looked so good!

I was satisfied with the outcome of our dinner. The service was quick, the portions of food were very big and all tasted very good. Although the food was spicy we did not have any trouble in digesting it! The ratio quality/price is good.

I haven't been to Pepitos for years and I don't know why I've stayed away for so long. The atmosphere was great, you're not sat on each other's knees and the service was brilliant.
The food was very tasty and we were full from started and main but had to try the pudding, chocolate cake, we're glad we did as it was beautiful. 3 courses for two with beers, excellent price and worth every penny. Can't wait to go again...don't change a thing!!
