Good Mexican-Spanish food in the heart of the Village

Located in the heart of Greenwich Village on 4th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues, Tio Pepe has a wonderful ambient and delicious food and drink. You could share a chicken salad and Mexican pizzas and make a meal of it. But just get one or the other and try the delicious entrees. Our wine by the... read more

A friend and I came in for brunch on a Sunday at around 12:30. We had a Travelzoo deal, which included one entree each, and unlimited mimosas or bloody Marys. The place wasn't completely packed but starts filling up when we left around 2ish. For my entree, I went with the Torta de Pollo (pulled chicken, avocado, black beans and... More

On a late Friday night place was dark, noisy and packed. But our sizable group was quickly ushered to the back room where we proceeded to have a very nice almost private party. As it was rather late we mostly ordered appetizers and drinks. The chicken and beef skewers were very good, grilled octopus so-so, but the calamari was excellent.... More

We were in NYC for the day and a friend had recommended trying Tio Pepe. We were able to get a reservation within 30 minutes of when we called and were promptly seated near the front windows, which slide open on nice days for an "open air cafe" sort of feeling. The food is Mexican but you certainly won't confuse... More

Had not visited restaurant during the past seven years. Went today with a friend and greatly enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. We ordered Entrecôte which is a grilled sirloin steak dish that was delicious. We also ordered a dish called Iberica which is flat bread with Serrano ham, cheese, asparagus and baby arugula. Another dish was ordered as well... More

It pains me to give this place average stars - because it has literally been my staple for about 15 years, but they either have a new chef, consulted with someone to cut corners or they have just made some fatal flaws all amounting to mediocre. Let me start by saying I really hope they read this review and go... More

We sat by the open window to enjoy a close up of the parade of various New Yorkers while dining. The seats didn't disappoint. I had the octopus appetizer, very tasty. For our main course my wife and I shared shrimp fajitas. Again very tasty. The service was a little slow at first, but as business picked up and more... More

It was not my first time to this restaurant. Was there again last weekend and had a most wonderful experience. The food was nicely prepared; the service was very good. The waitresses were friendly and welcoming. The Sangria was a steal. I must go back and try the paella. Was the food authentic? Hard to tell, but the overall experience... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
