The menu is always updated with seasonal ingredients and the dishes are always mouth watering. Went there for friend's birthday and still enjoy the atmosphere and their food items.

We stayed at the hotel, and had dinner twice! First night with kids on the a la carte, second night kids have been at the Kids Club party and we enjoyed the 5 course menu and a tete-a-tete. Great presentation, great flavors and lovey service. We enjoyed both dinners and when back in KK will for sure stop by again... More

Just ate in Peppino and thought it was the best meal we have had since arriving. Yes, it is pricey but you get what you pay for. My partner had the striploin and I had the lamb and we both ordered mash. It was insanely good. We ordered the chocolate desert to share, which was very rich but worth it.... More
