Gotta love this Baltimore tradition of fine Spanish cuisine. Easy self serve off the street parking, ($7.00), right across the street from the restaurant. Down a few steps leads you to a small bar that has everything you could want. We choose a pair of salt laced, Cuervo margaritas, Ahhhh! On to the table, no wait about 5:30 pm on... More

My first trip to Tio Pepe and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the spanish omelette, black bean soup and flan. It is restaurant week here in Baltimore, so they offered a lunch special. Take advantage if you can. It saves $$. If you can't afford a meal here, come for coffee and dessert. Yum!

Tio Pepe has been in business for many years. The restaurant is located below several of Baltimore's famous rowhouses and features an exposed brick interior. The food is elegant Spanish quisine. Fabulous and always far more than we can eat. They have 2 types of sangria - red and white. Both delicious. And even though you are stuffed at the... More

All had the same appetizer-"Gambas al a Jillo"(shrimp in garlic sauce. 1 entree was the Paella, the other 2 were the Tenderloin filet. For... More

The food and service is excellent. The manager is actually from Spain, so he supervises that the dishes are carefully cooked in a Spanish way. I definitely recommend it.

Every time I go to this restaurant, I have a wonderful dining experience. I have been going to this restaurant for the past 20 years. From the moment you walk in the door you are treated like a true customer. They even make some meals at your table. The chef always comes out to talk to you. Same chef for... More

I've been going here since 1968 and it has never disappointed me. The very best preparation of fish I have ever had anywhere in the USA. Succulent, lucious and delishest - it is the best.

Great meal, just as good as I remember. Had been there several years ago and were not sure if we would find it or if our high expectations would be met. They did not disappoint.
