Good food,great service

We came here about 5 years ago when we were last in Merimbula and enjoyed the experience so we thought we'd give it another try. Staff were very welcoming and seemed happy to help. The food was superb and wine was a great accompaniment. Not the cheapest but if you want a good meal in good... read more

The first thing I noticed when I walked into Pier One was the a,axing view over the lake, absolutely spectacular to say the least. What more can you ask for, giant Pelicans, oyster beds and tranquility.... We enjoyed a lovely lunch, the bread was warm and crusty and the accompanying oils, dukkah and tapenade delicious, my sister had a wonderful... More

We celebrated our anniversary at Pier One, had a table in an intimate area of the restaurant with a view over the water and oyster leases. The menu was very interesting and varied. Natural local oysters were a little disappointing due to size variation but all were delicious. Lamb entrée was a surprise as it appeared to be very small,... More

A visit to Merimbula and the opportunity to catch up with a dear friend was the reason for our booking a window table for lunch. Again I was not disappointed .. Service was great and three serves of crispy pork belly..YUM..all this with a great view across the lake. Our friend, who lives in Merimbula had never dined here but... More

What can I say except FANTASTIC the service, atmosphere and most of all the food, is by far the best in town. Everyone needs to give this place a go, and I guarantee you will all agree.

We had lunch at this restaurant, and the selection of food available on the menu is broad, the quality of the food is very good, and the service is fine. For the quality of the experience, we found this quite expensive, and the atmosphere was quite flat when we were there, although no doubt things liven up at night. This... More

We wanted a restaurant where we could try the local oysters and local seafood but also had good steak for my husband who doesn't like seafood. The starter of 6 mornay oysters were the best I have...
