Out on birthday date night with the partner, decided on Pier One. Best meal I've had yet, amazing steak and cooked to perfection. I am quite a picky eater and didn't understand what a lot of the ingredients are but went with my gut and was amazed at the flavours. I'd also like to add, the cocktails were delicious. Even...

The menu is extensive and offers a variety of seafood and other dishes including weekly specials such as wild caught barramundi. First visit we shared an... More

Firstly the staff were fantastic, friendly, not over your shoulder every 2 minutes and quite funny. The food was amazing, had the pork belly while my wife enjoyed some tasty seafood dishes. Beer and wine selection great and the coffee I finished on was probably the best I'd had during my visit. Note...sitting near the window facing the bay with... More

We ate here on Saturday night. Everything started off well, waitress staff were friendly and efficient. We ordered garlic bread as a starter, unfortunately it never arrived. We were then given the bread with our meals. I ordered the lamb on risotto. The lamb was so tough that the knife would not cut it. When asked by the staff how... More

Dined on a Saturday night and the place was busy but we had a good table, having booked two days prior. The interior is looking a little tired but still ok except the upholstery on our chairs was ripped and the tiled floor was dangerously slippery due to the humidity. I hope it wasn't grease. Service was acceptable and I... More

Our last visit here some years ago was very good so we decided to take our friends here this time. We booked and the restaurant was quite busy but there were ample friendly and attentive staff.
