“Delicious pasta and friendly service”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We had dinner at Sale e Pepe on our first night in Jambiani and liked it so much that we went back on our last night.

The menu was varied and the food fresh and delicious - I had pasta on both occasions which was wonderfully cooked.

Good wine selection and great service. Highly recommend a visit.

“Little Italy in Jambiani”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is located directly at the beach in Jambiani and definitely worth a visit. The owner and his helping hands are very friendly and always up for a little chat. You can expect fresh made pasta and great sandwiches for lunch and extraordinary seafood for dinner. If you are lucky you can have a fresh lobster with nicely cooked vegetables for about 25$ or a 15 hour slow cooked lamp. I had a really enjoyable time there.

“Excellent food in a welcoming environment”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Sale E Pepe is an Italian owned restaurant right on the beach front and only a stones throw from our room in the lodge next door (Sea View). At first we were unsure about spending time in an Italian restaurant because we wanted to explore the local cuisine but the menu had all of the local seafood specialties and then the Italian food as well. We ended up eating here for lunch and dinner most nights we were there.

I would not say it is the best food I have ever had but I would be very tempted to say it is the best seafood I have ever had. The tuna steaks were delicious and the octopus curry was amazing! I never enjoyed octopus before coming to Sale E Pepe but they've converted me. The staff were very welcoming (as was everyone else in Jambiani) and every night there were always at least a few other people eating or watching the World Cup making a pleasant atmosphere.

As with other establishments here the food does take a long time to come after being ordered but have patience and you will be rewarded. This only means that the food is fresh (often caught that same day) and is prepared there and then and to your specific requirements. Perhaps order a little earlier than you normally would.

“Great little spot”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The food and the service was just great. Can't remember the name of the lady who was serving us but she was absolutely lovely. The food was tasty as well and they had a nice selection of wine.
