Before Bodegon Pepe moved to its new location, this was a place to go for simple spanish food, in lovely surrounding with not knifes and forks(you had to use your fingers) They mainly served sardines, mussels and other finger food and it was super fun. Now in there new location, the food is average and overpriced. A real shame that the real Bodegon Pepe has disappeared.

As a family we ordered sardines and mussels which are just what they say, gorgeous fresh sardines, fried to order with garlic and served with bread and olive oil - and the mussels are a mountain of mussels to be devoured with the fingers. Been to Pepe's whenever i'm in Altea and it never varies in quality or friendly service. Those who are looking for "meat and two veg" go to Benidorm

I live in spain and generally eat in the more reasonable restaurants.As a special treat i visited Pepe which has a fab position on the front in Altea.
What a mistake.When i ordered i checked to see what came with my steak.Yes it was saute ang fresh veg.When it came it was with chips.ok..............I accepted but where were the veg?The waiter eventually brought them after pulling a face and being generally un interested.My friend ordered a fish dish.When it was put down i was shocked.It looked like something you would put on the floor for your cat.i kept quiet ,but when she tasted it ,she pushed it away in disgust. They were not interested in a complaint.A rip off.
