My friend, son and I decided to have lunch at Pepenero. We arrived at 13h30, ordered drinks then had starters. Immediately afterward, our waiter (Allan) took our main course order. After waiting half an hour, I inquired about our meal. Allan kept saying that there was a backlog. Finally, at 15h35 our food arrived. We waited an hour and a... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner and especially to have some seafood. View is great as it's on the beach road and close to V&A Waterfront. We all had seafood, from baby kingklip to sea-bass, and all four of us were impressed, with the quality and taste of our food. Highly recommended but expensive though. Worth it!

Had a great time having dinner at Pepenero in Mouille point. The ambiance and setting are superb.....right across the street is the beach and we managed to get a window view. Food and staff were excellent having tried the Seafood platter as well as their Lamb chops. Surprising part of this establishment was their prices ranging from R125 for main... More

We picked up our friends at the Mount Nelson and drove to the restaurant. The city roads were packed and very busy. We arrived at 8pm. I... More

There were four of us, and we all had different meals. All of them were exceptional. Great service, very nice atmosphere (not many people inside) - we'll definitely come back if we are around.

Just wanted to leave a note to say thank you for the excellent service and the superb quality of food. Enjoyed excellent wine, steak, oysters and sushi. Will definitely return when next in town. This is my favourite restaurant in Cape Town.

Ive been here and reviewed it before, but my last lunch here was once again so good I just feel compelled to recommend it again. Take a hot February afternoon, add a Haute Cabriere Chardonnay Pinot Noir, add the Sushi special, add the Pepenero Salad with avocado, and you have a Cape Town experience to remember.
