Direct Reviews

“We would like to pass on our sincerest compliments to your fine chef for one of the most memorable meals we have had in a long time. Equally, the rest of the staff we met on the night were just amazing. Thomas was our waiter and he’s a complete gentleman. His recommendations regarding the wine were spot-on. The manager at reception deserves a mention too, she was just delightful. It was a special occasion and you guys made it exceptional. Kind regards”

“I would like to thank all of your staff for the excellent meal we had Friday evening. The food was the best I have had in a long time the Foie Gras with the pear jelly was Christmas on a plate for me .The Miso Salmon with Coco Pampol was lovely, I have never enjoyed beans so much. My sister was delighted with her choice of menu.  She loved the kidneys cooked to perfection. What impressed us both was the selection on your early bird menu, well done.  A big thanks to all your staff for making our meal so enjoyable.”

“My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous Sunday lunch in Peploe’s recently – the quality and portions of the food served were the best we have had in Dublin and the service was impeccable. The live guitarist was very enjoyable and he really added to the ambience of an already relaxed and friendly restaurant. We have been raving about it to all our family, friends and colleagues since- many of whom plan to visit very soon. We will most definitely be back to try out other dishes as it was just so hard to decide what to choose from the delicious lunch menu, at such good value too. Diner tip- leave some room for dessert, the chocolate fondant is divine!”

The food was simply brilliant, well proportioned and our waitress, a young lady from Brazil was impeccable in her manner and timing…I have sent many friends to your restaurant over the years and I can genuinely say that I have never heard of a poor experience from them either…Thank-you and we will be back again – for longer next time!…”

One of the best meals I’ve eaten. I came to Peploe’s recently as a party of ten celebrating the end of a project with work. We had reserved a table and ordered off their standard evening menu. The food was over and above what I expected. To start I had mozzarella salad followed by the lamb. The main event for me was the dessert which consisted of praline profiteroles with ice-cream and it was safe to say my head did not leave the plate until all was cleared. This is a really cosy and atmospheric place and you can tell the staff are well trained. Our evening went flawlessly and everyone walked away satisfied. 5 star.

One of the best restaurants in Stephens Green with superb dishes for brunch, lunch and dinner. Along with regular lunch menu on Sundays they are serving brunch in a lovely atmosphere with live music. This Sunday we went to try out new brunch menu. Dishes we had were delicious and way more sophisticated than in any other place that serves brunch in Dublin…though very affordable!! Top it up with mouthwatering prosecco cocktails and Sunday afternoon is sorted 🙂

“The four of us had lunch at Peploe’s last Sunday and it was one of the best dining experiences we have had in Dublin. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful with the long mural, and the service is top notch. Our various dishes included a sublime crab tortellini, perfectly cooked sirloin rump, and a huge, and very tasty, portion of monkfish. Desserts were equally excellent as was the wine list. For a top restaurant like this it’s very good value at 29.50 for a three course menu. We’ll be back!!”

“We had a really nice experience. The food was amazing. Got the calamari and shrimp fry with peppers for appetizer. Tuna steak was very good. The chocolate lava cake and pavlova were to die for”.
