I visited with family last week for Sunday lunch. I've been there a few times before for breakfast and always had a good experience. This time, however, the service was pretty apalling and so downright rude at times, I thought I'd stumbled into Fawlty Towers! After being hurriedly seated and left by a waitress, we had to look around and... More

We dined at East Pier on a Friday evening using a Grab-One Voucher - two mains for $40.00 My scotch fillet steak was well cooked and the potatoes were very tasty. Nothing flash but a good meal for the price. My wife had the venison which was also very well cooked - nicely rare and again she was pleased. So... More

Had a delicious breakfast at East Pier - Big breakfast and French toast. We were both happy with our meals. Coffee great too. Also a lovely waitress who was friendly and attentive. Would definitely go back :)

I have been to this restaurant multiple times and each time the food has been stunning but problems with the service. Yesterday was a whole new level of bad and would have to say the girl is only there for the money. I would guess she is a back paper. First of all we were seated at a table that... More

We ate here while staying at the East Pier hotel and had a very good meal of calamari, steak and veal. Service was friendly and helpful and the food excellent. As I have the coeliac condition, I was disappointed to find that my choices were very limited but what I could have was well-presented and beautifully cooked.

Got a grab one voucher, 2 mains for $40. I'm very glad I did as I would have been a little peeved at paying full price for what was served. Front of house staff were lovely, but forgot the small note that we wanted our garlic bread before the mains, not at the same time. The steak was burnt a... More

Fabulous evening. Beautiful food cooked perfectly. Only stink part was they lost our order so we waited 45 minutes to get our first course. They did admit it and have us free drinks to apologise. Well worth the visit.
