    This was a return visit to Pepe Sale. The greeting was warm and friendly as always despite the restaurant being busy with the pre theatre dinner rush.

    We were seated and given menus and wine list and offered bread.

    Our order was taken swiftly and with help where needed. As always the specials were described (and in my case ordered)

    The device was efficient but friendly. We ordere pudding and coffee after the meal. Which was brought quickly and tasted great.

    This was my fourth visit and our friends first. We will all be back for more.

    The authentic family feel of Pepe Sale is always a winner for me.

    Excellent meal and service. We were early diners but the atmosphere was building nicely thanks to the professional and friendly staff. The classical calves liver dish will be hard to resist on future visits. A good start to a very enjoyable evening.

    Long established for good reason. A family run, welcoming atmosphere with a varied menu of consistently high quality. Our party of six had pasta, fish and steaks on our last visit and all were very happy with our choices. Wine recommendations were spot on. Very pleased that we chose Pepe Sale for a birthday celebration.
