Authentic Puerto Rican & Cuban Food. Many people write about it in their reviews of the Rio Mar in Rio Grande, PR. I would love to write a review about this place as it was the best Mofungo (fried mashed plantains) we had in PR (and we tried it in 4 restaurants).

Excellent appetizers and atmosphere. Entree's (lobster, pork chop, and t-bone) were all over cooked. A good idea to discuss with the staff exactly how you want your meal done. All in all - not great but I'll give them another try.

The food was okay. It was quite pricey actually.The place itself is quite comfy and has a nice atmosphere. The service was disappointing. Our waiter went missing and we have to ask another waiter to go look for him. We were about to leave and not order anything because we spend almost an hour waiting for someone to take our... More

The food was okay, too pricey. And the waiter was missing in action. We had to ask another waiter for water and napkings. Bad bad service.

Being Puerto Rican, I wanted to really good, home cooking like I remember having when I visited years ago and they definitely had it... I enjoyed every bit of my food.

One of the best restaurants in PR...I lived in PR for 7 months and i've had my fair share of great food but Don Pepe's exceeded expectations. Love this place!

If we were by ourself probably we would miss the opportunity to experience this wonderful place. An authentic Porto Rico restaurant - service, atmosphere, style and the food was incredibly good! For appetizer we had fried cheese with a goiaba sauce. What a combination! For the main course I am vegetarian and they make a superb mofongo both for me... More

We were staying at the Wyndham and found Don Pepe's thanks to TA reviews. What a great "find"! We had a reservation and likely needed it on a Monday night. The front door never stopped opening with people coming in from 7pm until we left. Mostly it was locals coming in (great sign), but we saw others from our hotel... More
