It is not enough to rest on memories of a memorable restaurant owner. Pepe is dead and the food has gone downhill.

Amazing view on the sea (sunset from there cannot be missed), a very nice and colorful restaurant, with delicious fish and Lebanese tipical cuisine! Next to the restaurant there is also a mini museum on Pepe's history :) Recommended!

This restaurant was opened by Pepe Abed sometime in the 1960's. Has been very popular ever since and has had a large amount of celebrities who have visited over the years. Their photos are put on the wall in the restaurant. Excellent fish and sea food.
