Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our first time to Sale Pepe for years and we loved it. Really excellent service and quality of food was top notch. Lovely to visit a restaurant with ‘normal’ food. There were four of us and started with classic prawn cocktail special, chicken wings, breaded...mushrooms & deep fried Brie. All were very tasty & devoured. For mains two of us had steak which was cooked perfectly, the other two had the seabass special which was also excellent. Finished off with a warm apple crumble. A lovely atmosphere with very friendly staff. Will definitely go back soon.More

With all the hassles around flying these days we've decided to stay on the island this year. 1st trip - short break in Malahide. Last night dinner in Sale e Pepe put the final seal on a pleasant couple of days away. Food, wine list...and service faultless. Arrived just after 7.30 when the room was almost full due to the obviously popular pre-7 pm early-bird offer. But even at normal prices our meal represented real value for money. Highly recommend, but book first.More

We booked this restaurant based on customer feedback and weren't disappointed. The food was so good I had the jambalaya and it was excellent. My wife the red shrimp scampi which was done in a tempura batter which was so light. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the...meal. Service was very very good and the owner a class act as good an ambassador for Irish hospitality as you could ever hope for. Our group number changed from 4 to 7 and at the last minute we asked if we could bring forward our booking by 30mins – no problem was the answer. Super meal with even better service.More

first time here even though i live close by - i usually go elsewhere in malahide but i noticed this was number 2 on the malahide list for TA so i tried it out. I have to say i wasnt blown away with the decor...which is a little old school, but the food was just really really tasty and the service was great. fairly pricey but the food matched in quality. a nice surprise and will be back.More

After a week of travelling round south west Ireland, we were desperate for a meal that actually contained vegetables (chips do not count).... and this meal exceeded our expectations! Excellent service with a smile, and food speedily and efficiently produced. Wild red prawn piri piri,...and chicken cooked with Marsala and a tomato and cream sauce. And the accompanying vegetables were divine. So much so that we just HAD to finish off with amazing pecan meringues with luscious cream, almonds and caramel sauce. Decadent, but not too sweet. Best meal we have had in Ireland, and very good value for money. Highly recommend.More

Went for family meal and from the time we arrived in the restaurant Louise and all the staff went above and beyond to make our evening so enjoyable. Food was top class as always. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. Definitely the best restaurant in Malahide.
