Located on Holdenhurst Road in Bournemouth, Casa Pepe is a blend of Steakhouse and French Bistro with a little Scandinavian wood cabin feel thrown in for good measure. I once visited this same restaurant some years ago at which time it was certainly a little worse for wear and rather sad looking. However, since its redesigned and redecoration one is greeted with a little more class and style – definitely more character and most welcoming too. As to the culinary offerings, the Paella was delicious and freshly prepared. I never get a good French onion soup here in the UK but this was not bad at all. Lamb Shanks were a little over-cooked on the outside but a tasty flavour and quite tender on the inside. Round it off with a very delicious apple crumble and custard and you have one very happy customer.
I’d definitely recommend Casa Pepe for casual dinner in Bournemouth and I am more than sure the new owners will be taking on-board any suggestions. Just drop by, they’ll find the perfect table for you.
