Bay burger

Went for lunch a couple times and loved it. We all had "the big bay burger" the first time but it was too massive for me to finish. Return trip wife had another with the promise to eat it all and she did. My meal was very nice too. Children friendly. Big meals and friendly staff. It asks if it's... read more

The pier hotel is a pleasant establishment with good food at reasonable prices in pleasant surrounds. Opposite the ocean (without views sadly) we found the staff cheerful and polite which is somewhat rare in Esperance especially in their supermarkets. You can visit this hotel and feel comfortable immediately which allows you to relax and enjoy yourself.

Relaxing and having a beer at the end of the day after driving from Kalgoorlie to Esperance, making a choice from the menu was taking a while, when one of the regular locals suggested we try the $10 burger. Well our eyes just about fell out of our heads when it arrived - it was huge! And not only that... More

Really nice venue to wine and dine. Drinks and food are a bit pricey but that is expected of a nice restaurant/bar. Food was delicious and I was really impressed by the salad bar. I am usually disappointed by most restaurants with their portion sizes but I couldn't even finish my meal at this one I was that stuffed! Didn't... More

We had the Chicken Baconique which was absolutely delicious. The portion is large so sadly couldn't fit in a dessert. We were lucky to get a table as it was very busy. We had a liquer coffee after dinner which was fine for me but my husband found the coffee too strong.

A recent holiday in Esperance WA had us looking for places to eat and the Pier Hotel Bistro was recommended by the owners of the unit we were staying in. We eat their 3 times for Dinner and hubbie, who is hard to feed at the best of times, was only disappointed with the veal schnitzel on our last evening.... More

Sizes of the meals are huge, staff are very friendly and welcoming. Great location would love to see some table outside over looking the ocean. Must make a booking as they are usually booked out. Love coming back each year.

Not a bad place to get a bite, but loads of nicer places around town. Staff were friendly and it gets quite busy and can take a while to order food during peak time (like over 30minutes in line) food arrives quite fast but would probably be worth waiting an extra 5-10 minutes for a hot steak and a bit...

Its a very popular place, gets packed pretty quick so make sure you book before hand. Food was very nice. Staff friendly. Atmosphere nice, can get very loud though. Slight down side not much in the salad bar

We got the last table available for the evening! We were tired and hungry so we quickly ordered the lasagne and steak medium. Salad bar and bread rolls included thankfully we didn't take anything from there as the portions were huge! Couldn't finish our meals! Food was delicious and came quickly. Steak cooked to perfection. Tried to return the following... More
