“Really good tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

The selection of tapas is awesome and plentiful, generous portions and washed down with Sangria. Great for a night out with the girls.

“A little bit of Jerez closer to home...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

This is a fantastic small bar just off the main drag out of Kings Cross, the atmosphere feels like Spain and resembles a typical sherry tapas bar in Jerez.
Its very cosy and fills up quickly, so be early as once you get there you wont want to leave, the food is delicately and precisely served and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly.
You drift way into another world in here and its a great haven for those want to escape from the hustle and bustle... I have been several times and its consistently excellent and I will return again and again

“Sherry Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Awesome intimate sherry bar with carved jamon and a few other tapas on offer. Great buzzy atmosphere and friendly staff, prop up the teeny bar or stake-out a sherry barrel table and stool.
It's diddy so the loos are in their sister restaurant, Camino, just opposite - slightly more hectic and commercial (or at least was on a Thursday night)

“A treasure trove of fine sherries and Iberian cuisine.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

I have always wanted to love sherry. I've spent years being told by people how wonderful it is, how undervalued it is; if, like coffee, you drink it enough, you'll get the taste for it and appreciate it like never before. Well, it turns out 'they' were right; Sherry is a truly magnificent, undervalued and delicious style of wine, and it becomes even more so when consumed with tapas. I had been recommended a visit to Bar Pepito by a few fellows in the wine trade, and having developed an interest in sherry, I made a point of visiting. I'm glad that I did. It's small, you could say bijou, but decorated wonderfully with old artwork, as well as posters from Jerez and some of the more well-known sherry houses like Gonzáles Byass. The selection of sherries is sound, about 3-4 in each category, making their tasting 'flights' a fantastic way to acquaint yourself with the types of sherry available; these are enhanced if paired with the food recommendation. Despite its size, don't expect the food to be immediate, as it is all prepared to order. Good value wines and a trio of excellent Cavas round off a very well thought-out selection. This is not a place for a substantial feeding, rather, a place to sample in the Jerez style. For the ultimate (and rewarding) experience, try the full sherry tasting menu alongside the full tapas pairing. Between two people the whole thing works out at £30 a head, but you'll leave well satisfied, fed, and with a greater appreciation of this fine drink than ever before.

“Nice mix of variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

I enjoy sitting and chatting with a wine in hand but I was lured to the many Sherries they have here. I arranged a tasting with a friend and it was very educational. Complimented with the tapas later in the afternoon/evening it made for a good visit. I will return again.

Suggest that you take it slow at this venue as prices are not cheap for the casual dining environment however you will walk away complete.
