“Delicious pizzas at Ohope”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

We had four delicious pizzas ( including a gluten free for one of us), Margarita, a meat lovers equivalent, a special and the pizza of the week. All were delicious. Enjoyed over a good wine on our balcony looking out to the ocean! Can't get any better we thought! Friendly husband and wife ( we think) operating it; breads and French pastries looked pretty good too!

“Magnifique!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

What an absolute gem of a place run by such a lovely couple. My husband and I had a large carnivore pizza, small vegetarian, garlic bread and I couldn't resist going past an almond croissant. All amazing and for such a reAsonable price. I'm hitting myself that I didn't get a pain au chocolat as well as it looked absolutely delicious.
There is a Pizza Hut in downtown Whakatane, please take the time to drive to Ohape Beach (approx 5km from Whakatane) and meet Louis and Anais, you will not be disappointed!

“Best pizza for miles!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Louie's pizzas are the best! Hot from thewood fired oven, and all real. Once you have tried these you will not settle for Dominoes or Pizza Hut ever again! Great choice, great price and they are happy to alter set toppings to cater for everyones likes and dislikes. The only pizza I will be eating in future!

“Authentic French/Italian wood fired pizzas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

You can probably only fail to enjoy a trip to Louie's if you are in a desperate hurry for fast food. Although the cooking time for the pizza itself is very short, because of the popularity you will need to wait in line for your freshly prepared and cooked pizza. Phone ahead and collect at the informed time.

“Great gluten free pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Wood fired pizza in Ohope, good choices on the menu and the option of a gluten free base - at not additional cost. A great takeaway on Saturday night, three sizes to choose from priced from $12 to $20 (or $22 for the large carnivore choice).

During the day, pick u a delicious pain au chocolat, almond croissant or loaf of beautiful bread.

Don't be put off by the inauspicious exterior, drop in and try these excellent pizzas from the friendly owners. You'll never go back to a fast food chain for pizza again.
