    I recently celebrated my birthday at this wonderful restaurant with seven of my friends, and I can't express how delightful our experience was. From the warm and attentive service to the mouthwatering Argentinian cuisine, every aspect of our celebration was top-notch. The staff went above and beyond to make our evening special. They not only accommodated our group but also allowed us to bring our own cake, which added a personal touch to the celebration. It's not often that you find a restaurant so accommodating, and we truly appreciated their flexibility. As an Argentinian, food was the highlight of the evening. Each dish we ordered was bursting with authentic flavors, showcasing the culinary expertise of the chefs. The attention to detail in every aspect of the meal was evident, making it a gastronomic delight for all of us. To our pleasant surprise, the restaurant generously gifted us a dessert for the entire table. It was a sweet gesture that made our celebration even more memorable. The only disappointment was the absence of Entraña, but it didn't overshadow the overall positive experience. Despite this small hiccup, the evening was a beautiful celebration filled with great food, excellent service, and a welcoming atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an exceptional dining experience, especially for special occasions. It's a gem that combines delicious Argentinian cuisine with outstanding hospitality, making it the perfect place for celebrations.

    One of the best spots in Dublin. We went for NYE dinner with my partner and could not leave happier (!and fuller). Any dish we tried was stunning, and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel like home. The signature cocktails I tried were also amazing.

    Just had an amazing dining experience at Peperina! 🌟 From the warm welcome to the delightful dishes. The service was impeccable, and the staff's knowledge added to the enjoyment. There is a before and after in your life after trying the Milanesa Napolitana. We will definitely come back and I'll be recommending it to everyone!

    Visited here for the 1st time for lunch with a pal. Really loved the experience. Had a selection of 3 empanadas to start, delish, a Milanesa of aubergine, also delish and the Almirant brown salad, the least successful choice. Service was very friendly especially the girl who is just new to the restaurant! Lovely areas, lovely atmosphere albeit the playlist could be reviewed!

    The place is beautiful, nice ambience and decoration, outstanding and pleasant staff. It’s a shame the main items in the menu are missing. We went for Argentinian classics like empanadas and parrillada but they didn’t have those. Drinks were great but no fernet, which made it disappointing. Also, the morcilla is made the Irish way which is black pudding. Not the same guys!! Overall the food was good, the sides were bad though. The milanesa napolitana was excellent. Amazing alfajores de maicena! The place in general has great potential, I hope it gets better and full of people!!
