This is one place which is an obligatory stop at the Key West. We came here for lunch and a drink and we had an incredible Cuban meal. The decoration is beautiful and very unique with a Cuban style.

In the mood for cuban food, we decided to give this a tray. Our first warning sign should have been that there were a lot of empty tables inside. We each had one of the special - grilled mahi mahi and the seafood combo (grilled shimp, lobster and scallops). Both dishes were overcooked and my wife stopped trying to eat... More

I can't compare this to any other Cuban food but all I can say is it was great. Will eat there on the next trip to Key West. Great live music at dinner.

Wonderful place to eat after watching the sunset on Mallory Sq. We sat outside to listen to the great Cuban combo playing and had a beautiful evening. So hard to choose from all the fantastic Cuban food, we had to go back again!! The atmosphere inside is also very special. You've got to go here!

What a nice atmosphere here...inside and out. The staff is pleasant and always available. The food was very good. I got a special...lobster, shrimp, and scallops over a mild yet flavorful spinach sauce. It was served with yellow rice and plantain. The others dishes: roasted pork with cumin-mojo sauce, tamale, and yucca. No complaints...empty dishes. Two succulent carafes of sangria... More

We asked where we could go for food, music and the world famous Key West sunsets and we were told you have to go to El Meson de Pepe. So we headed to Mallory Square, watched the sunset and then went to Pepe’s. What a treat! We were seated outside, near the musicians so we could appreciate the music. People... More

This place has a perfect location overlooking sunset key and Mallory square. The meson mojito is great and ver strong. El meson de Pepe is a great looking place and the Cuban nachos are very fun.
