Very spacious and clean with a great outdoor seating area. The pizza was ok, a little bland. Took about 20mins to get a drink. There were some really loud, obnoxious and clearly drunk customers at the bar though that kept yelling at each other and swearing, even though there were several tables with young children in close proximity. The owner/manager... More

Just a bad night out. Not their normal service or food. A large group of us [about 30]. Took nearly 2 hours to get the first few pizzas ... and then came in batches over the next hour. Bad tasting, bad gut. I hope this was a one off!

The atmosphere at Pepe's was pleasant and the staff was welcoming. The food, I had their pizza, was average. I enjoyed the outdoor setting and it worked well for our group.

First time I visited this place, the food tasted delicious. So I come back in a few days with some friends and order the same dish... tastes horrible!!!.... Come back again in a few weeks and the taste is average!!! Other than that, the environment is really peaceful, great service!

We popped in to the Restaurant in the afternoon for lunch. A detatched Restaurant with its own fence, a big dinning area and plenty of space for kids to play. We ordered 3 pizzas, my own being a seafood one. The orders came back in time, with a very adequate portions and toppings. The waiter was a very kind person... More

Free garlic bread filled us up a litte, but we still had space for delicious starters and big, tasty main course. Good value for money and attentive staff. Nice garden atmosphere.

In all the time of eating pizza, I have never had a pizza served without a tomato base, without salt and pepper and without herbs. Truly....this was the worst experience ever and the worst meal. And...some of the items for the topping were missing, but you still have to pay full price.O yes...and customer service....a fat 0. We complained to... More

We stopped for lunch around 2pm one afternoon and there was only one other table occupied in the restaurant. The covered open air dining area is quite pleasent and a breeze managed to find its way through the restaurant helping to keep it somewhat cool. The waiter was on Africa time so it took quite a while to be acknowledged... More
