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

From stepping inside this establishment the clocks rewound by some 40 years. The decor the furniture even the staff. Rushed meal , expensive, handwritten bill. I know retro is king but this is still in it's original packaging and perhaps needs a relaunch.

An early dinner on a Friday night proved a hit for my wife as another celebration of her birthday. Attentive staff, a massive choice of food, our choices were all excellent, and a bottle of fizz were also great value. A popular venue which was ultra busy as we left. I recommend booking at the weekend. Loved it. Traditional, established... More
