A great lunch venue for our visit

The setting would be as good as anywhere near the sea .in the world I would imagine. Food was as expected and service was friendly and prompt. Charges reasonable.

Enjoyed a very nice meal with the extended family here last night. The food was great and with friendly service. Went back again for lunch today, however, my son and I (we both had the same dish) have not been feeling well since. Hopefully that is a one-off, because last night was great.

Hi There, I am the owner of Peppers Beachfront, I and the team are so disappointed that you couldn't phone us before posting such a comment. Please understand the damage a comment like this can do, let alone on an International site, and without an ounce of proof that your lunch had anything to do with the way you and... More

Amazing view! Try their soft shell crab and order Millton Riverpoint Viognier! The service is friendly, prompt and professional. Food well presented and tasty and the view to die for!

We dined here for our sons 21st. The service was flawless. Meals were seasoned and cooked to perfection (my son and brother are both chefs and were very impressed with the meals) The slaw was magical :) We were dining with our 3 yr old who got a bit tired and grumpy and Alex (our waiter) quickly remedied her mood...

Went here on recommendation of the hotel operator. We had a lovely meal accompanied by the sun going down over the end of the bay. Service was really good, by pleasant people.

An amazing position on an upper level, overlooking the wonderful Midway beach. Surfers in the distance, waiting to catch the right wave, were there to entertain you. We ate there a 7pm during the week. Most of the tables were taken or reserved for later eaters. If you want a table by the windows and the view, book ahead. Outdoor... More

Peppers is located on the beach front at midway beach. On a warm day the outdoor seating is great and provides great views of the beach and surrounding area. There is also some inside tables that have great sea views as well. The food is average and is priced accordingly. The coffee isn't that nice at all - which is... More

Have been here several times and its one of my favourite "middle of the road" places to lunch in Gisborne. Food is good, prices are reasonable and I could sit and watch the sea all day!

One of us had the special, a beef dish, the other the crispy chicken. Both were wonderful, so was the Gisborne wine which accompanied them. The beachfront setting is superb, and our waiter was very knowledgable and pleasant.

My wife and I had called in for a coffee earlier in the day and it was evident this was a popular place to have lunch. It was a Thursday and we called back that evening for a meal. The restsurant was extremely busy for mid week. After 7 weeks touring New Zealand this was by far the best meal... More
