7.40pm on a Sunday night, we walk into Pier 1. There is a sign out the front stating dinner is served until 9pm 7 days. "I'm sorry, we're closing. It has been too quiet tonight". There was another group of 3 people behind us, so 5 customers were turned away. Don't bother going there. False advertising!

We enjoyed our meal and experience at Pier One. It was quite pricey, but no worse than most fine dining places. The food was excellent, and overall it was worth the cost. We shared our entrees - oysters with beetroot and prosciutto, and banana prawns with a mango salad. Both dishes were excellent, and a highlight of the meal for... More

The waitress was very nice, but there's obviously no care shown in the managing of this place. Generally a poor experience, our visit was toward the end of summer so maybe the manager has had enough, I wouldn't know, got out as soon as possible and went for coffee and desert next door.

This was recommended to us by a local and. It was much better than we expected. Friendly service, but not over attentive, delicious food and good value. If you want fine dining in Merimbula then go here, and ask for a table near the window(you may need to book in advance in high season) so that you can enjoy the... More

We went there on a Monday night, not our first choice, but definitely it was the better decision. From the moment we arrived until we left the service staff was friendly, always asked for more drinks and you become the impression you are very welcome. Food- tasting platter seafood, a little bit to much deep fried, but it was tasty... More
