We recently had our daughters 21st Birthday party here. The preparations leading up to the event was first class with every detail taken care of by Nicole. On the night the staff were exceptional, not only making sure everything ran smoothly but also making sure our guests were looked after. The Barman, James, was very entertaining and professional. The atmosphere... More

I recently had my engagement party upstairs and we found everything was perfect and went smoothly. The room was beautiful with a stunning view of the beach and the staff were amazing and extremely accommodating. The following day I received dozens of messages saying how lovely the venue was and how delicious the food was. We were beyond happy with... More

Started brilliantly when shown immediatelyt to a table and given iced water. Bottle of wine served was not properly chilled. Food arrived and waitress decided we could do with knives and forks. Fish and chips ...good but light on quantity. Service was ordinary..untrained backpackers and a manager too busy talking to his regulars.

Went to the Pier on 23 Feb 17. Very nicely set up. Fast service. Staff were very helpful. Had the calamari for entree. Good portion and super delicious. I had nocchi which came with Parmesan sliced cheese, peas, spinach and prosciutto. Very nice. Wife had the tacos which she stated were also delicious. Great meal. Great service. Will definitely return.

Great food, great location. Beautiful atmosphere. Friendly and comfortable. Highly recommend. Pizza was very tasty with an authentic Italian base. Good selection on the menu without being over the top. Seating is really and outside is very comfortable.

Food here is very nice. Mid range priced so not cheap but the venue is very nice. Could do will a bit of maintenance but it's still good. Food has consistently been nice and the waiters/waitresses are always friendly.

We went to the Pier for dinner with a friend and had a relaxed and enjoyable evening. The staff all appear to be backpackers which adds to the experience (especially when one doesn't understand you!) and the pub never seemed to fill up which kept the evening low key. The food was very nice, although some of the starters were... More
