Pipa's is without any doubt the place you must not miss while in the area. Having the perfect fresh fish on your plate, your feet in the sand, the sun shining and the ocean making its relaxing noise. We know and love this place for years, it has constantly grown better. Just visit them on Facebook ... Have been there... More

Friendly, beach-front establishment. Great establishment for watching the pelicans diving for food and the sun worshipers strolling the beach.

Spent a pleasant afternoon in Pippa's with a team building event and dinner. The place is in a nice beach area and people just come and spend a day relaxing in the beach. We arranged to have the team building activity in the beach from an agency and they arranged the snacks and dinner with Pippas . When we arrived... More

Not only were the "Chicken Bomba" (curry chicken), and Thai fish filet fantastic and reasonably priced, but members of the staff were extraordinarily helpful in a very difficult situation. We had an incident that required a great deal of Spanish/English translation, and Omar, one of Pipa's employees spent LITERALLY an entire day helping us communicate with doctors, nurses, pharmacy staff,...

The lunch at Pipa's was fantastic! Sitting right on the beach - your choice of sun or shade. Definitely worth the effort to find it - follow the little road right to the end - signs along the way. Only open until 6pm but does take dinner reservations.

I don't understand why Tripadvisor doesn't have a rating "Good" ! Between "average" and "very good" is a considerable difference while "average" tends to sound rather negative. Pipa's is definitely GOOD ! ...provided you go for an informal day on the beach and you don't mind happy children and a mixed crowd of active and passive visitors. No frills, just... More

The setting is spectacular, the service is excellent, and the fish fingers are to die for - (plus best lobster on the beach) This is what you hoped you'd find when you went looking for a beach bar. Go as far as you can through the village of Farallon (it looks dicey - it is fine during the day) Soft... More
