“A Great Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We were looking for somewhere local to go on a quiet Saturday night, looked on trip advisor and found "Tio Pepe" saw the reviews and decided to book and go.
Well we had a most wonderful evening, great atmosphere all inspired by the owner who supervises everything, welcomes his guests, both new like ourselves and obvious regulars.
As for the food, we have been to good Spanish restaurants many times over the years and enjoy tapas, this was on a par with anything that we have had even in the best tapas bars in Barcelona.
It is only small, seating about 40 people so booking especially on a Saturday night is essential.
The prices are very reasonable and sensible too.

“Never ceases to amaze”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

After several visits to this fantastic restaurant, we have never been disappointed in any way. Quality of food, service and atmosphere are always consistent, EXCELLENT!. Miguel is passionate about his restaurant and the food he serves. Always a great night out and well worth every penny. From Sharon and Franco.

“Fresh and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Lovely fresh, flavoursome food and good service – we ate at Tio Pepe after reading so many positive reviews on here and had a really nice meal. It hasn't replaced Viva Cuba as my favourite tapas bar (although the food is probably of a better quality at Tio Pepe because it all tastes freshly cooked!) but I would be very happy to eat there again, nice restaurant.

We live close by and have eaten here many times. The food is fantastic and always using the finest produce. Only a small place so remember to book and say hi to Miguel!

“Amazing food, lovely wine, brilliant service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Couldn't ask for anything more from this restaurant. We went as a group of 8 girls and the staff couldn't have done any more for us, we felt very looked after. The food is lovely and not just the usual items that you get from a tapas restaurant, but some fantastic specials. We ordered so much food because we wanted to try so much. The house wine was lovely and a very resonable price. We had a great night and even though we were last to leave the restaurant, we weren't rushed out. Can't wait to go back!
