“Nice food, good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

I appreciated that it wasn't noisy (we could talk with each other and relax) and the service was good. The food was definitely good, and also compared to the price.

The food was simple, good and not greasy.

We shall most likely return and can recommend it.

“Biggest Mistake of my Holiday!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013 via mobile

Our experience at Tio Pepe was so horrendous that we now describe terrible things and events with the phrase: 'Tio Pepe'. We were charmed into the restauraunt by the charismatic man out the front. Do not make the same mistake we did! We all ordered nachos which were dry, flavorless and over cooked. We were then charged 5 euros per person for guacamole even though the menu states that nachos comes with guacamole. When we pointed this out to the staff they became rude and aggressive. Terrible food, terrible service. There is beautiful food in Amsterdam. Do not go here!

“Impressivo Mexicano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Great food with warm welcoming ambience. Top quality steak, ribs and king prawns cooked to perfection rounded off with a nice warm Cafe Tio Pepe coffee (they do not hold back on the brandy). Well worth a visit but a bit too costly to afford every night!
