About Pepénero

Located along the golden mile of the Mouille Point beachfront, a short stretch from the V&A Waterfront, Pepénero is a luxurious restaurant and bar with an exciting take on Italian cuisine. With views that stretch towards Robben Island, generously spaced interiors and fresh, contemporary décor and styling, Pepeneros has established itself as a destination up-market dining experience, rivaled by few.

Jazz plays lightly in the background as patrons gaze out to sea over their artfully presented salad platters, seafood or perfectly prepared rump. Peering out over the ocean over lunch or admiring the beauty of yet another exquisite South African sunset with the oysters, sushi and champagne crowd, your experience of Pepénero will be one of the best that the ‘Mother City’ has to offer.

Owner, Paul Kovensky has said that Pepénero, meaning “black pepper”, refers to the spice we add to both the social and culinary scene. "Our food is based on variety and simplicity. The philosophy seems to speak of understated luxury, echoed in every dish and every detail. The menu beckons with dishes such as expertly prepared sushi and rocket salad, or bowls of mussels in white wine sauce.

For mains, we recommend everything, but the Tagliata - sliced fillet topped with rocket, shaved parmesan, olive oil, balsamic and avocado, and the Pepenero, sautéed in honey, lemon and onion caught our eye. Vegetarians are well catered for with starters such as the parmesan crusted aubergine and the phyllo parcel of goats cheese and sundried cranberries, or spaghetti with asparagus, spring onion, pea and mint. Couple your dining experience with champagnes and wines from an award-winning winelist.

Wickedly indulgent desserts include white Lindt chocolate cheesecake and Lindt chocolate & banana beignets.
