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.
