This amazing Pipis is a building not to be missed in Havelock North with its hot pink colour. The service and food match each other of being amazing. The atmosphere is cozily relaxed and is never cold inside. It is a great place for going out with a group of friends and as a couple. I would definitely recommend the... More

Hard to go past if you are in Havelock. Great atmosphere- laid back and casual but with excellent service. Fantastic pizzas- hard to go wrong to be fair!!

Latest visit of many that we've made, and pleased to report that things are better than ever. Pizzas are still fantastic, but what's really been sharpened up is the service- this has occasionally been the weak point in the past, but was great this time around. Got seated in the extra tables in the foyer, which could have been chilly,... More

It has a really unique and fun charm. It can get a little irritating if its busy and you want to have a conversation without being bumped or overheard. But for a social catch up with friends it is hard to beat. Only disclaimer is the food seems to be a bit inconsistent of late....

A totally different dining experience. Pizza's to die for and friendly welcoming service. If you're averse to pink or noise then it';s not for you. This is family and friendly dining at it's most relaxed.

Pipis is always a great place to eat. Pizzas are always fantastic, great choice of flavors,staff are courteous. The pink environment is an pleasing alternative to the traditional restaurant. Negatives are the noise and a no booking policy. If you want a quiet conversation, then try somewhere else.

I've always loved Pipis, we often go there for a quick bite to eat as it is our go to place. Knowing that they are always very full, I booked a table for about 15-20 of us in their covered outdoor table. We arrived at different times, so the first half of us ordered, then the second lot ordered once... More

You see it all over Hawkes Bay and the pizzas are as good as the Pippi Restaurant in Havelock easily. I usually get the families when they are at Westshore Beach at the local pub so get to enjoy a few crafty biers.

Amazing atmosphere. We went on a very busy night and were lucky to get a table. Everyone enjoyed their time, all meals were fantastic. Only one small comment regarding the gnocchi being too oily.
