“Disappointing ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Good Tripadvisor ratings don't seem to mean much.
Food shockingly bad.
Flagship dish, Ottoman Beef Stew un-chewable. Crepes Chicken more tasteless crepe than chicken. Wine mediocre.
Absolute disappointment and totally overpriced for quality served.

“We had a fantastic New Year's Eve at Pepe Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We stumbled into Pepe Cafe for New Year's Eve .... and were very glad that we did! Inside we found a warm, family run restaurant with great atmosphere and excellent food. This was more like having dinner with a friend, in their home. We thank Pepe for a great night, and highly recommend this restaurant to others.

“Very friendly and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We enjoyed our experience so much, we went back a few nights later. The waiter remembered us and treated us to cay and strawberries after our meal. The meze plate was delicious both visits and the entrees good as well. We appreciated the friendly atmosphere too!
