We held a work conference at East pier during the weekend for 30 people. What an amazing venue to use, we absolutely used everything there. We used the rooms for the conference, got break out rooms, used outside for our team building activities. Each day we had breakfast, morning and afternoon tea, lunch and dinner. WOW is what every one... More

Well, as the title says, the food was delicious and the location - right on the beach - was gorgeous... just a shame the service didn't match. Please servers/wait staff - what ever you want to be called - please speak to your customers! I think, the entire time I was there, our waitress only said, "yep" (when I asked... More

We recently organised a family birthday for 35 people at East Pier. We cannot say enough about the service and help we received from Jemima and the other staff there. We booked a private function room which had it's own deck and opening doors, with a lovely see view. The buffet meal was outstanding value, every item was perfectly cooked... More

I have never been disappointed with this restaurant. The meals are of a quality standard and the prices are appropriate for the meals they serve. I have sampled a range of pizza, pasta and chicken. Someone who dined with us said that the lamb was very tender and delicious. I have been to several functions here that were catered for... More

I was treated to a lunch at East Pier on New Years Eve. There was a group of family and friends who thoroughly enjoyed the service, food and the location. We decided to return again for brunch on the 2nd with more friends again being impressed.

This restaurant has the best views any restaurant in Hawkes Bay has to offer, yet the ambience atmosphere, service and food is average and it is a pity to see this place with hardly any customers. At least play some music to create some vibe. We ordered the platter which was a little expensive for what we got. The platter... More

This place may have a million dollar view but that's were the good times stopped. It took ages for the wait staff to come and clear the previous dirty dishes and wipe down the table. My friend ordered some overpriced wedges and paid $4 extra for melted cheese and bacon - huge disappointment however when they arrived. They seriously looked... More

Me and my partner thought it would be nice to enjoy a drink and platter along the beach. We're not greeted with a hello on arrival by staff. Male staff member was unable to crack a smile, felt as tho we were more of a nuisance. Ordered bread and dip platter and requested if was possible if could have some... More
