“Excellent Food in a wonderful setting”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

The restaurant is located on the Quayside of the River Orwell at Ipswich, in a very modern building with excellent facilities many of the tables look out to the many yachts moored on the quay which provides a very picturesque outlook.
The Food was excellent, the staff friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.

“Not as good as Lloyds Avenue Pizza Express!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

You go to Pizza Express because you know the menu, service etc. It's a lovely easy place to eat, however, now having been twice to the Pizza Express on the docks, I would still rate Lloyds Avnue. The food of course is the same & yes, lovely for the price. The views are better at the docks and a great place for people watching, but it's the service that fails. Staff are friendly and welcoming but are not as efficient as the Lloyds Avenue restaurant - this really needs to be addressed as when the weather changes, there will be fewer customers for this reason.

“Good service great food”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

MARINA STORE.

I cant really fault this place. I've eaten here a bunch of times. its always nice and clean with friendly staff & quick service. Its unfortunate for some of the people who have been here and not received good service or good food.. maybe you caught them on one of their bad days.

The only thing I will say is, last time we went, it was slightly drafty where we were seated and we were sat next to a couple who were quite loud.. fortunately I was out with a friend for a birthday so we werent actually too bothered about how loud it was, but I can see how that would annoy other people.

Regardless, I'd recommend this place to anyone, even people who have been before and got bad service.. maybe give them another chance, they are quite good when they are on the ball :)

“Perfect place to go on a sunny day!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

My Previous review as seen below was obviously on a bad day for them. Since going back the service and the food has improved dramatically!!

Really good food, with a really good bunch of staff behind it, very friendly & nice and quick too!

Great place to eat; Especially if you sit outside in the sun! Lovely breeze and a beautiful view too!

“Great pizza!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Even though Pizza Express is 'just a pizza place' and not a fancy restaurant, I wanted to write a review as we had a really lovely meal there on Sunday night and feel we should give credit where it's due. It's a really pretty setting, the staff are quick and efficient and the pizzas are great - what more can you ask for? Also, we used some Tesco vouchers so got £70.00 of food for £17.50!
