I was sweating bullets trying to put together a last minute rehearsal dinner for my wedding - everything had been falling through for one reason or another. I was pointed toward El Meson de Pepe by our wedding planners, and am I ever so glad! I only wish we had just looked at them right away, would have saved me... More

Had the pulled pork with rice and instead of beans, I ordered the garlic soup. Yes, garlic soup! It was really good. Fun place to eat and drink.

It was busy when we went but sat at the outdoor bar and listened to live entertainment while we waited for our table. The musicians were very good and we didn't have to wait long for our table. After that things slowed down and we waited too long for drinks and refills and our meals. When they finally came the... More

El Meson de Pepe was recommended by the bike tour company we used. Loved it!! I had the antojitos as my meal. It was way too much food and I so enjoyed every bite. My wife got the Cayo Heuso Cuban Mix. She thoroughly enjoyed it too!

Outrageously decorated restaurant. You could spend an hour just walking around looking at all the entertaining decor, it is like being in an over the top cartoon, and I mean that in a good way. So fun. And the food is different than the fare you will find elsewhere. A great diverse selection of Cuban cuisine. Everything we got was... More

We had a great server, he told as later this was his first day. He spoke very good german. The appetizer and Dinner where very tasty, our cocktail also very good. The only thing I did not like to much was there very filthy bathrooms.

The nicely appointed interior of this restaurant is a bit pub looking with brick walls lined with tin signs and black & white photos, a high ceiling with fans spinning, wood tables and chairs and a bar against one wall. There is also outdoor seating under an extended roof line. Walking down a corridor in the rear of the restaurant... More

The service took a while. We got the app sampler and one of the items was frozen solid in the middle. When we were finally able to get our servers attention, they apologized and took it away. When they brought it back, it was the original they had taken away that had been cut in half. So all they did... More

Superb live band playing Latin music- sit outside to enjoy the weather and the atmosphere! Several folks doing Latin dances to the music by the outdoor bar. Excellent food!!! We got dinner items 80,81,80, & Chicken Tenders- all were great! Service a little bit sparse but it was friendly and we were in no hurry so suited us just fine!... More

I only eat chicken and this place had very limited chicken options. My food was very bland with no test Cuban style rice and beans were Ok but its not worth the price. If you only eat chicken I would not recommend this place

Thank devtale
