“Not recommended”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

We went here on our first night as I'd seen it recommended on TA. The service was quite poor and whilst we there a couple walked out fed up with waiting. I wish we had done the same. We ordered a bottle of wine which they didn't have - the waiter returned to tell us and suggested another wine. Luckily we asked him how much that would be and he told us 38 euros. The wine we had asked for was 14 euros so why he thought we would want to pay that I have no idea. As it was we ended getting one for 20 euros and it was no great shakes.
The meal was not very good - our pork was overcooked. Needless to say we would not return.

A good night was marred by a dodgy bill . Many items not charged but, more expensive items on the eventual bill . When we challenged ..... no english ... Thank goodness for our tour leader

“So, so Tired”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

We were guided to Dona Pepe by an out-of-date travel book and what we got was an out-of-date restaurant with a tired menu and a head waiter more interested in up-selling us than on serving us. Too bad. Ronda is such a beautiful city, filled with history and "ambiente". We'll definitely get a new guidebook before this trip is done.

The "grandmother" spoke to us outside the restaurant and invited us in. Lots of choice of menus to suit everyone we had menu del dia which was delish!

“Below average!”
Reviewed 30 July 2010

Have been on this restaurant 4 times before between 2004-2007. These times were very good experiences, the food and service were excellent. But this year (2010) I went back, and the experience was not good. My wife had a fish dish, and the sauce was a sauce intended for a meet dish, a brown heavy/meaty sauce? And the fish should have been sole, but was in small peaces, so it was hard to be sure that it actually was sole. My disc was (Entrecote) was average. My wife’s desert (crème brulée) was burned.
