“Great food in NE Philly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

We've eaten in Tio Pepe several time, each a very pleasurable experience. Don't let appearances fool you. The noisey downstairs bar is nothing like the upstairs restaurant. They feature Portugese dishes and really know their stuff. The octopus is fantastic. My wife ordered a few servings for a dinner party we were having. The paella is wonderful as is everything else we've had here. The servings are large and the staff is pleasant and helpful. The only negative is that you can hear the loud jukebox downstairs in the bar.

“Hidden Gym in Philadelphia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

This restaurant serves some of the best food in Philadelphia. The steaks are awesome and I would recommend Paella you will not be disappointed. The flaming sausage is also terrific and a great presentation. The only warning would be the neighborhood is okay at night.
