*BAD SERVICE* SO SO FOOD GROSS BATHROOM I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. We enjoyed almost everywhere we ate and stayed while on our trip, but not here.

This is a good place to stop if you want a quick bite and to watch the news on TV. The coffee is good and you can take it to go if you want. Most Panamanians don't as evidenced by the lack of cup holders in cars. But, the lifestyle here is more relaxed and laid back than in the... More

Good food and nice staff. A short walk from center of SC, only one server was unfriendly, I finally got her to smile.

My boyfriend has never had yucca frita and on our last day en el valle we were hunting. Among closed restaurants (on a monday) and unhelpful service at other establishments, the staff at don pepe worked it out. They harvested yucca from their garden, boiled, fried and spiced it to perfection. Kudos to the service and the food. Recommended.

We went there for breakfast twice, as the restaurant is conveniently located at the foot of Hotel Don Pepe. Outside covered seating off the main avenue is a nice touch. Expect to take your time and leave your expectations of speedy service aside as you order food at Don Pepe: both times, the second plate arrived 5 minutes after the... More

Friendly service, good local dishes, nothing fancy but surely that's part of the adventure of traveling and trying new places. We liked it and so did the locals.

El Valle doesn't have a lot of restaurants and it especially doesn't have a lot of cheap ones. Here you can get a basic American-style breakfast of bacon and eggs for around $5. It's not particularly good, but you won't find better in the area. Otherwise your options are Tiera y Mar (better tasting sandwiches, haven't had their breakfast), Restaurante... More

We had lunch at Don Pepe's last week while we were in El Valle, and it was not good. We may have caught them off guard, there was only one server working and after we sat down, the place filled up completely. My wife ordered fish, and it was actually tough and chewy, Corvina should not be tough and chewy.... More

We had lunch here and found the food was quite good. We had a vegetable soup, squid in creole sauce, and fish in mushroom sauce. The mains came with vegetables and a choice of potatoes or rice. We also had juices which were a little watery. The meals took some time to arrive but the service was fine. The menu... More

A small place in town, with local food and full of local people. Not really a tourist place but well worth a visit. They speak English and have an English menu as well. Had some wonderful Creole food there for a small amount of money!
