Don Pepe is an ICON on the Dominican Republic restaurants. Expect nothing but the best both in quality and service, but also be prepare to pay for the best. The wine list is great, as well as the hard licor variety. The climate inside and the overall appearance of the place is spotless. Great place for a bussiness lunch. NOT... More

The food, the service, excellent, but it's quite expensive. Still, if you have the chance you should come and enjoy, it's basically in the center of Santo Domingo.

I came here with my boyfriend due to its popularity and amount of good reviews on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately their seafood quality is very underwhelming. I had the mushiest octopus I've had in life, and their seafood quality in general is a boo for us. The only thing we slightly liked was the prawns, which are mediocre as well. Waiters never... More

I was mistaken in believing that Don Pepe is a stuffy place for old people. Yes its classic, refined, old fashioned, but what they do they do great. Being twice in one month and if I could I would go every week, yes they are expensive, but not soo much that you can enjoy a treat from time to time.... More

Visiting DR and wanted to go somewhere really nice and upscale. Don Pepe is a gem in a really nice neighborhood. Ambiance was fantastic, I loved that you could see the wine cellar from your seat. I don't even like wine, but I bought a bottle anyway. The service was perfect, i speak no Spanish, and the server still accommodated... More

Don Pepe is neither unassuming nor subtle. When you get there you understand how this restaurant has survived decades through several financial bubbles and crises. Their food is consistently impeccable, their service is precise and respectful almost to a military quality. Good for family meals, celebrations and business lunches.

Large dining room and separate bar and tapas section. Good selection of appetizers (try the Iberico and Manchego cheese), great Salpicon de Marisco (a spanish style ceviche)... More
