We've been going for years and if it's your birthday you get a celebratory song and cake to go with it! The service is very friendly and quick too, the food is great and I especially like the steak. It's definitely worth a visit.

I can't really find a positive to say about a meal at pepes - foods expensive and not really worth the money. Service is poor and the experience wasn't good at all. Very disappointed after that hype.

My experience with pepe's was not great. We arrived at the venue and were welcomed to our seats. When it came to order drinks we had no problems but the wait for them was long. We waited at least ten minutes and I would expect faster. The main meals took a very long time to arrive and where very disappointing.... More

I have visited Pepes many a time and never had a problem. We were in on a Friday night, not a busy night as they had plenty of free tables. We were a group of 5, it took over an hour from the time our starters were cleared to our main meals arriving. Then we all had deserts, the cheesecake... More
