If you want rack of baby lamb, you won't be dissapointed with Costillas de Cordero at Pepin Restaurant. It was the favorite dish of the table and we all decided we would return again, just to have the lamb dish. We were also enthusiastic about the Paella de Arroz Negro -  black rice paella with lobster, shrimp, chicken, chorizo, mussels, clams and calamari and the Paella Valenciana -a traditional paella of shrimp, chicken, chorizo, mussels, clams and calamari with saffron rice. The house wine was very reasonable and went well with our food selection. On our Saturday evening visit we were pleasantly entertained by a guitarist and flamenco dancer.  Our server was polite, informative, and and efficient.

However, a visit at lunch time proved dissapointing.  Items on the lunch menu did not fair well, nor did the salad. The bread (on both visits) was served with a mayonnaise concoction - something none of us were impressed with. Service was slow on a Saturday with hardly anyone in the restaurant. We arrived to the smell of strong bleach which surely would have turned us away if our previous visit hadn't been so successful. In summary, our first visit was a great success; our second was a great dissapointment.
