This restaurant has so much going for it, location, menu, surroundings but is sadly let down by its staff. I received my coffee shortly after I was seated and my tasty, tangy crepes were delicious. But then I was ignored and had to approach a staff member to order another coffee. The place was far from busy, and 15 mins... More

Food and views are fantastic - it is the service that lets this restaurant down. We found one of the wait staff to have an attitude and not want to take orders, another wait staff member was trying to cover for him and seemed to be rushed off her feet and then was told off in front of us for...

Hello from Pippies, Thank you for your review. My husband and I own Pippies and have read your review with total disappointment. As you can imagine we cannot be at the restaurant 24/7 although we are there most of the time. We do have a new male waiter who has been training and this is probably why he was hesitant.... More

We had been recommended this restaurant by a local. They had eaten there themselves recently and said the food was good but the service was slow. They gave good advice. I would add to their view and say that the service was bad humoured. It is a shame when great food is let down by a sub-optimal client / service... More

Puppies is well situated. Beautiful fresh food,well presented. Simon, the chef has great attention to detail. Service lets them down. Sulky wait staff does not add to ambience.

A nice meal. Good Service we were on the Ship wrecked package. We did look at the full menu and it looked good and if it was as nice as the package food a great experience to eat here. Over looks the water but we didnt get that view as we were at the back of the restaurant. If I... More

Ate here before seeing the Sound and Laser Show at Flagstaff Hill. Great experience. Staff were all very happy and helpful. Nothing seemed to be any trouble to them. Food was good quality and service was good. Quiet location and great views. Would recommend.

Great casual dining in stylish surrounds. Affordable modern menu with a wine selection to match.Friendly efficient service with breathtaking views of the Lady Bay and Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village.Open for Breakfast, lunch & dinner as well as morning and afternoon teas. Maybe just pop in for a glass of wine and just soak in the atmosphere while taking in the view.
