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.

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.

Arrived at Merimbula late afternoon on Sunday 22/3/15 to find that most eating places were closed. Not being real fond of CLUB food we thought we would walk the town to find something better, as it turned out Pier One restaurant was open but my wife was hesitant as she wanted to save it for our last night, I suggested...

Not child/baby friendly at all and very very expensive we left after reviewing the menu and the somewhat snooty waitress

Lunch on 5 March for our wedding anniversary was superb both from a service and ambience perspective. The food was good as it gets on the South Coast Bernard
