The decoration of Cortijo de Pepe takes us back to the 70s. Not only because it was then when it opened its doors, but also because of the old photos and elements of the Andalusian tradition that decorate the space.
It has an unbeatable location: the Plaza de la Merced, the same that saw Pablo Picasso be born and grow up. With its rustic and informal style, in this tavern good atmosphere is also linked to rich and traditional cuisine.
Forget about innovative techniques and flourishes: here it’s simple, it focuses on the best essence of the product, which can be tasted in two different levels: both in the bar and in a small room.
Salpicón de mariscos, gambas al pil pil, avocado salad, porra antequerana with tuna and ham or loin in lard are some of the best tapas in the house. Tasty specialties that have their origin in the countryside and the sea of the province of Malaga, perfect for practicing the art of tapeo.
