    Frosty welcome because we dared to arrive 5 mins before they opened , my starter nice fish soup which was actually muscles in tomato sauce with a couple of prawns my friend advocado ok but too much cheese my main of liver well cooked but covered in too much balsamic and onion my friend sea bass very good but both accompanied vegetables were cabbage and carrots I have them for Sunday dinner! My dessert awful supposed to be lemon and orange cheese cake so much cheese stuff hardly any base and virtually no taste of lemon, no one asked did we enjoy our meal or thanked us for the tip , throughout our meal it seemed there were far more important guests to look after than us

    Excellent meal and service

    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.

    A good meal, as was the case on my only previous visit, and attentive service.

    Excellent service. Fabulous food. Flexible with menu to accommodate children as they don't have an actual children's menu.
