    We love Pepe Sale; we came for the first time about a year ago and it has quickly become our go-to place for nice dinners out. The staff is friendly and informative; whether it's asking for descriptions of dishes (for the 8th time) or letting us know the kitchen is busy so one pudding might take an unusually long time to prepare.

    Their dishes are authentic and delicious. We've brought friends and family and nobody has left unimpressed.

    Lovely dinner as usual and thoughtful and personalized service. Fresh special food and always come here for special occasions. Love spaghetti allo scoglio with prawns and mussels and the steaks are great.

    The welcome was warm and friendly, as always. We were shown to a lovely table in the window and our drink order taken. Fresh bread arrived at the same time as the drinks.

    The specials were explained and we took our time to choose before ordering.

    All courses for all of us were amazing. Good quality, fresh tasty food. The wild boar and my dessert of basil panna cotta were outstanding.

    Although the restaurant doesn't look from the outside very much, I have to say that the food was exceptional and I used the venue to take a group of customers for an evening meal, all had different meals but all of them said that their wood was amazing. Personally I had the sea bass baked in salt and it was out of this world and definitely a must have!!! The restaurant was busy even for a Tuesday night so I would book ahead for large parties. I will be using this restaurant to take all my customers to, as it's menu caters for all and is delicious.
