Cheapest beer in WA I've found so far! Surf and turf good for a pub. Salad bar part of meal makes up for expensive pub grub. Wait staff not very friendly or untrained in food side of business. Went on Monday night as it appears to be the only "restaurant" open.

Just another hotel bistro. With the show on in town we were glad we booked - the place was packed, but the service was efficient. Average chicken schnitzel. A very nice, large serve of grilled, groper fish - about $32. Wine - from $25 bottle. Salad served with the fish was much better than the salad from the salad bar,... More

Don't expect any cozy pub atmosphere whatsoever. The night we went the pub was packed, and the dining area is very close to the whole bar and TV area, so it was like eating in a noisy barn, and frankly a bit rough. Every time a goal was scored in the footy the pub errupted. Table was not at all... More

We were surprised to find, on a Tuesday night, that the Pier Hotel bistro was absolutely packed. Always a good sign. We ordered our meals and helped ourselves to the salad bar while waiting for our food. Considering the number of people, the meals came quickly. The lasagne was excellent and cheap. The fish in broth was a little expensive... More

The service is good but the food was a pretty bad let down. The oysters and nachos were really bad but I have heard that the steaks are good so I don't know.

All meals were great fully enjoyed. We would all recommend this place. It was also walking distance from our motel. Service was... More

Ate here with my wife and 4 young kids. The place was really busy but our meals were still delivered quickly. Pizzas were fantastic and they gave us a box so we could take the leftovers home. Top spot to eat in Esperance
