Really enjoyed our time with you there. The staff were most accomodating. WE had a 10month old little boy with us and they were all most helpful. I hope he did not upset your clients! The meal was lovely- we say outside and talked away. Lovely place- lovely food- lovely ambiance.

We booked pepperina on the morning of Mother’s Day, as another restaurant had let us down badly. Pepperina to the rescue. We had a fabulous Mother’s Day brunch served with a smile. Really friendly neighborhood restaurant. Food fabulous and really organized generally. Thanks pepperina.

A hidden gem! I loved everything about it, I will definitely come back. The service was great, everyone treated us really good. The place is small, cosy and perfect for a date. The menu was simple, nothing extravagant but the food was definitely worth it. Will recommend.

It was a very good evening at this local restaurant. We had a chicken and vegetables broth, nachos, chicken Kiev, and the steak. The broth and the chicken were very good; nachos were not impressive; I won’t have the steak again. Service was top notch as always. Ambience very friendly!

I found restaurant staff welcoming helpful enthusiastic and overall service very good. Restaurant felt cool for a December. Overall ambiance and atmosphere was ok but as it was early tables were not full so allowing for that I will return for brunch or Sunday lunch in the future. Food was of a high quality taste very good choices were also good and specials were explained in an enthusiastic fashion.

Dunville avenue where Peperina is would normally during the day be a hub of activity but at night it’s probably too tucked away for the competition of all the eateries in Ranelagh Village. But keep the good work up as feel this will become a popular new dining venue for Ranelagh.

We love Peperina! Excellent food! First class ingredients. A really lovely restaurant! Prawn Bruschetta and goats cheese salad were superb. Moretti Beer on tap! We highly recommend Peperina!

Found this lovely restaurant on my way to eat in Renelagh. Had a quick look on their website at the menu.
Looked good so booked a table. The restaurant itself is nicely laid out inside. We got seated immediately by a really pleasant waitress. Ordered a bottle of wine, and dinner, no starters. My wife ordered off the special menu which was a chicken dish, which she really enjoyed. I ordered the French burger and 3 times cooked chips in a brioche bun. The burger was really lovely, the bun a bit heavy and didn't taste like brioche. The chips should have been cooked only once, as they were floppy and tasted overdone.
It would have been nice to have the burger with sweet potato fries, or fresh skinny chips.
We did enjoy our meals and will be returning shortly.
This is a lovely restaurant, good atmosphere, the waitress was friendly and helpful, and the service was good. I would recommend this place to friends.

Pepperina is a really nice restaurant located on Dunville Avenue in Ranelagh. We got a really friendly welcome and the staff, as always, were extremely helpful , nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely meal and the food was really good. The only downside to eating at this restaurant is that is is seriously lacking in atmosphere and also the fact that you can't get an Irish Coffee/Baileys Coffee after dinner probably due to the fact that there may only be a wine licence in place. We left the restaurant at c.9.30 p.m. on Saturday night and we were last to leave, there has to be something they can do to "up the ante" in relation to atmosphere, that is a huge part of the dining experience when we eat out as we like to stay on in the restaurant if possible. Having said all that, please go and try this restaurant for yourself, you will be pleasantly surprised.

The food and service were really excellent. Everyone was very friendly and attentive when seating and serving us. The food was delicious, I had a Quesadilla followed by the bread and butter pudding which was recommended by the waiter and it really did not disappoint.

While I have no complaints about the food or the service I do think it is a little over priced for what it is.
