A very buzzy and busy place with friendly service and good food. Quirky ambience. A full house when we arrived is testimony to its popularity. You get to share tables and meet the locals.

Pipi's is by far the noisiest restaurant in the little Village of Havelock...so if you want to have a serious conversation or are with anyone who seriously cannot hear, limit the talking and focus on your eating -- or go somewhere else. Pipi's thin crust pizzas are simply the best in the 'hood. And their topping combinations are creative and... More

Food was awesome, unique atmosphere, fun! We enjoyed their approach to serving; help yourself to drinks and tell them what you had when we paid. Loma (?) our server was very warm and pleasant.

Great pizza with a light crispy base and exceptional toppings. Loved the cosy atmosphere and the drinks fridge is a great idea. The ice cream desserts were delicious and I loved the way they were packaged. A great family friendly place.

This restaurant is popular for reasons that escape me. It is noisy, crowded and the pizza based menu delivers good but unimaginative food quite expensively.

Yummy and reasonable priced food. Good atmosphere! If you enjoy eating off old doors and sitting on bench seats and candles in bottles then you will love this. Can be very noisy. O and you must love pink. Good food, nice and tasty

Great choice of mains salads and desert in a fantastic atmosphere. You can help yourself to beer from an old bright red fridge. You sit besides people you may not have ever met. Fantastic atmosphere.

It has been 3 years since we visited Pipis and were disappointed and unfortunately same again. The staff are great but the pizzas are average and the ambience poor. The bases weren't right and the additional ingredients to classics spoilt them. It is really noisy and certainly not the place to take friends if you were hoping to enjoy conversation.... More

A funky cafe, a delightful find in Havelock North. Take a late afternoon trip up Te Mata Peak, watch the sun set and then drop into Pipi's for a pizza. Inexpensive food with cheerful and quick service. The rustic bench seats and to the charm of this cafe. While the pizza's were a little light on toppings which made them... More
