Fantastic views

...dined here for Mothers Day Luncheon, booked this morning and pleased to get a table. Set menu of three choices for each course. Eager to please but not enough to check on each course. My sisters chicken was dry and the mixtures of flavours too much for her taste buds. My de-constructed salmon salad caesar was delightful, salmon cooked to... More

My partner and I ate here on the same night as the previous reviewer. I am not sure why they continually commented on the pricing and content of the sandwich board outside instead of the quality of the food and the great staff and pleasant surroundings. I can only assume they were looking for a cheap meal and not a... More

We went to Pier one for dinner and we felt somewhat miffed about a number of things. Firstly the menu displayed outside at street level was not the menu we were offered once inside the restaurant. We wanted Fishermans catch and fish and chips. These however did not appear on the dinner menu. When we questioned the wait staff she... More

Four of us ate here in March 2015. The food was excellent, including the vegetarian choice for my veggie wife. The serving staff were engaged and extremely knowledgeable about the dishes - especially the fish. I've been coming to the Merimbula/Pambula area almost every year for the past 65 years. I didn't know that Pier One existed. We will certainly... More

Lovely restaurant with a great view over The Merimbula Lake. Some meals are a bit pricey, but they are yummy! Cappuccinos are great and staff friendly. Highly recommended.

We wanted a special night to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary and we couldn't have picked a more romantic place. The staff were fantastic (especially Phil, a big thank you) they were all friendly and helpful. We were lucky and had a window table and the view across the lake was just superb. The food was just sensational, only problem... More

We had a lovely meal last night. The eye fillet is a winner. And the explosion of taste in the dessert called Carnival. Friendly helpful staff. Attentive but don't hover.
