This little tapas bar opposite Plaza de la Merced is well worth a visit. Great friendly service, food at the bar or tables outside. I think probably family owned and run - the tapas seem like the genuine article - you can choose from the display at the counter or menu. They are good value and very tasty! wine also... More

We visited last night as part of our anniversary celebrations and started at Cortijo de Pepe for a glass of wine and some of our favourite tapas. It was still relatively early for the Spanish (8pm) and there were mainly tourists in the bar. The fried potato balls with ham, the avocado salad and the flame grilled chorizo all were... More

Yes it's rustic, but in my experience the best food is found in the most authentic places. It's right off the Plaza de Merced and you may not necessarily think to go in, as it's not glamorous, but the food is lovely. Prawns amazing, the chorizo grilled in front of you on an open fire. Iberico ham, hand carved.... so... More

We were starving when we arrived and ordered a bunch of dishes. There was an avocado salad that was excellent and I really enjoyed the croquetas casera (though my friend, a Spaniard from Madrid, was not impressed). The price was very reasonable. Personally, I think it's worth a try. Service was poor because one waiter was handling a lot of... More

We had a lovely time in this low key restaurant. The service was a little slow on a busy night but lovely and helpful. We had fried calamari, pil pil gambas and pulpito which were all good.

We have eaten here 3 times due to their tuna in tomato sauce. It is the best tuna we have had as well as the meat balls. Reasonably priced tapas and there are loads of choices. Service was efficient and friendly. The only downside was their wine wasn't the best. But it's worth coming to Cortijo de Pepe and try... More

There is nothing we had that was out of the ordinary here, and although recommended to us, we wondered why. The service was slow and uncaring, the food OK, and the decor a bit shabby and uncared for.
