We went here for lunch on our last day in esperance. We just ordered off the lunch menu and were pleasantly surprised at the portions vs price. The calamari was to die for, I have to say it was definitely the best I've ever eaten. Cooked to perfection, even the other half who doesn't normally like it kept stealing pieces.... More

My husband an I visited twice over this last week. Once just for drinks. A couple of beers at lunch time. Staff friendly and nice surrounds and atmosphere. So we thought we would call in for a wood fired pizza in the evening. Sadly this was a little disappointing. Undercooked and so flooded in cheese that it was stodgy. The... More

Although it was busy the tables were cleaned as soon as vacated and the food quality and quantity were of real value. A help your self salad bar followed by superb prawns in garlic... More

This hotel is next door to best Western on the beachfront. They have wood fired pizzas from 5 till 9, which are superb. Service is fast and friendly. The menu is comprehensive and I would have liked to try other dishes like the BLT. It has a friendly atmosphere even for non-locals.

Although I had previously heard that the food at the Pier Hotel was pretty good, after our visit today I would say instead that it is okay, but nothing special. When you go out for food you expect that the food will be better than what you can cook at home yourself (unless you're the next Masterchef) and mine was... More
