Second visit Pier one, June and August. Restaurant for the second time was cold and had to sit there with jacket on. The log fire was not lit and only God knows why not in the winter.Food and service presented well. Ordered large glass of wine, only to be presented with small glass and waitress saying they only do 150m... More

We had a good meal on a wintry Sunday night when a number of other restaurants were closed. We're asked whether we wanted a window seat or one near the fire when we booked which was a nice touch - and as it was dark when we arrived we were seated between the two options so had the best of... More

What a fabulous choice my colleague made with this restaurant for a dinner function. Ambience was warm and clean and the central fireplace was a welcome after coming in from the cold night air. Service was quick, efficient and friendly. Meals were ordered off the full menu and delivered to our group of around 20 in a timely manner. I... More

Beautiful outlook from above the boardwalk. Service welcoming and friendly. Very good menu that covers local treats. Can't go past the local seafoods. Eaten here couple of times now and can't fault the restaurant. Consistently good and just can't beat the view across the water. Fairly basic in my meal selection but the meats and seafood are always scrumptious. Staff... More

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 surroundings I'd give this... 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
