Buzzy, busy and always lots of fun, Pipi's is the sort of restaurant you can go to with a crowd or as few as two

Buzzy, busy and always lots of fun, Pipi's is the sort of restaurant you can go to with a crowd of 8 (or more) and make your own party, or as a few as two and simply enjoy the buzz of the passing parade. Either way the food is great, the wine choice more than ample and the atmosphere always... read more

Always love the pizza at Pipi but tried a new item on the menu and wow - honestly the best steak I've had anywhere! Beef fillet on a yummy creamy mash with rich Paris butter on top. The steak was cooked to perfection - rare was exactly that. Can't rave enough about it!

20 of us joined the writer & publisher to celebrate a very successful book launch. Easily fed on a variety of pizzas.

Pipi's is an eccentric pizza restaurant that delivers exceptionally fresh and tasty food in a unique restaurant. If you want a quiet romantic night out go somewhere else but if you want good food and a lively atmosphere you would have to travel a few more miles to find anything like this place

The atmosphere of this family friendly spot is a bit frantic, a bit noisy and a lot of fun. Food is simple but excellent in taste and presentation. Ask for the apple crumble with a little pot of pouring cream.

Quirky decor and a very friendly atmosphere make this a really great place to eat- especially with a family. A great seasonal menu of pizzas and other main courses. The chocolate ice-cream is to die for!

When you travel you want to experience something you cannot get at home. What's the point of flying thousands of miles simply to eat out at generic chains? Pipi is unique. It's always busy and bustling because the food and wine is locally sourced from Hawke's Bay, beautifully cooked and presented artfully. Be prepared to make friends.

Enjoyed a great night at Pipi's after a round of business meetings. One of our team had never experienced the unique atmosphere at Pipi's before & they loved the place. They couldn't get over how busy the place was & the warm & friendly buzz from diners & more importantly the staff. We started with garlic pizza bread & peppered... More
