The biggest issue I would have with brunch at Peperina is that there is an over reliance on eggs. I don't eat eggs so was. a bit stuck for choice. There are plenty of alternative options for brunches-how about smoked salmon, grilled tomato, mushroom and avocado. Or take the salmon out and have a vegan alternative. Otherwise, it is really lovely food and the staff are a credit.

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.

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.

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.
