Went for dinner with my parents this week to Pepe Ric, while visiting for a few days. Worked out that we've been coming to this restaurant for 25 years since my family first bought out here. It's a great place, the food is outstanding and the service and staff lovely. We have never had anything other than a superb meal... More

The last time I was in Nerja was 22 years ago and we used to visit this restaurant a lot. It hasn't changed but that for me is its charm. It is a truly traditional Spanish restaurant with a large international menu choice. The terrace area is pretty. The staff are friendly and service is good. There is a large... More

A real find if you like traditional silver service. Really good to dine on the terrace under a tree. Excellent food and service with a smile. Enjoyed the house wines very much. To start I had what I think werethe best prawns pil pil in Nerja so far. Fish mains were very fresh and tasty. A good choice of side... More

We have walked past Pepe Rico many times and really not been interested in going in. However we were recommended it by a long-time Nerjan who told us that she had been going for years and liked the (unchanged) menu and (unchanged) interior. So tonight we gave it a go. If you like 70s food (admittedly not bad quality), decor... More

Great restaurant to look out for whilst visiting Nerja , a touch of class , the food always nicely presented and cooked. For people who like to dress up , make a special occasion of the night or feel in refined company. The set menus are not to be overlooked with wine even included at a really competitive price ,...

All four of us in our party had the pizzas and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the al fresco dining and the entertaining guy who served us

This Restuarant has been going since 1962 and there are certain clues to this effect from inside, all very interesting.The food I believe has been a constant and of a high standard. I do think the owners might be a little slow to change and also confused with identity since you have 20 euro plates or a full three course... More

Have dined here before, and had excellent meals from the a la carte menu. This time, I chose the table d'hote, which offers 3 courses for just under 10 euros. Starter of pate was excellent, but the main course of spaghetti carbonara was very, very disappointing. Just a pasta conglomeration, with hardly any ham. Will probably return, but be more... More

Always a must visit place for me. The courtyard terrace is lovely in the summer & inside is nice & cosy in the winter. The food is good & the service too. Last visit I had the steak & it was perfectly cooked with a nice sauce. My partner had fish which was cooked well & not overdone as can... More
