Celebrated my birthday at Pipi and were wonderfully looked after by William and Dave. We ate our "usual" dishes of flounder and salmon salad and they were up to their usual high standard. And then a great surprise, a birthday dessert, lighted candle included! Such...More

Pipi was a cute pink restaurant, funky ambience. You serve yourself to drinks from the fridges and then just tell them what you took later, which is a nice honour system thing - the Moa cider we had was delicious. The pizza was good, once...More

I don't think so, probably not. It depends when will you travel there as they will be closing down soon.

Pipi is all about you the customer we don’t mind if you come in your muddy gumboots or your Gucci stilettos, or if you drink Bollinger with your pizza or house red. We are very lucky in Hawkes Bay to be surrounded by wonderful produce and wine and our menu very much reflects this, where possible everything is local and organic. We don’t take ourselves too seriously but we do take what we do very seriously. Using the best freshest ingredients and cooking them to best bring out their natural flavours. Pipi was born out of my love of my children and food and now 15 years later this has not changed at all and is still at the heart of everything we do.
