“Always a Winner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Hard to go past if you are in Havelock. Great atmosphere- laid back and casual but with excellent service.
Fantastic pizzas- hard to go wrong to be fair!!

“As ever, just great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

Latest visit of many that we've made, and pleased to report that things are better than ever. Pizzas are still fantastic, but what's really been sharpened up is the service- this has occasionally been the weak point in the past, but was great this time around. Got seated in the extra tables in the foyer, which could have been chilly, if not for the lovely warm blankets which were supplied. Being seated out there also sheltered us from the noisy environment inside (which worked fine until the table alongside was taken up by a loud-voiced family-but that's no fault of the venue....) All in all, still going strong

“On a good day its good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

It has a really unique and fun charm. It can get a little irritating if its busy and you want to have a conversation without being bumped or overheard. But for a social catch up with friends it is hard to beat. Only disclaimer is the food seems to be a bit inconsistent of late....

“Noisy but nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

A totally different dining experience. Pizza's to die for and friendly welcoming service. If you're averse to pink or noise then it';s not for you. This is family and friendly dining at it's most relaxed.

“The Pink Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

Pipis is always a great place to eat. Pizzas are always fantastic, great choice of flavors,staff are courteous. The pink environment is an pleasing alternative to the traditional restaurant.

Negatives are the noise and a no booking policy. If you want a quiet conversation, then try somewhere else.
