Tim, the bartender upstairs, is just fantastic. He engages with with clients, and is just amazing. A real asset to the place. He is a proper beer assistant, and keeps the drinks full.

I want to give this restaurant four stars but my husband is adamant that his pizza was average at best. I ordered the battered fish with salad. The food arrived quickly and the service was very attentive. Give this place a try!

We had a wonderful time at Pili pili. The food was excellent! We were referred by a friend to this gem of a restaurant to have fish and chips - the best fish & chips along the shoreline and gosh we were not disappointed. Keep...up the good work.More

The service is terrible. The waiters take for ever to serve you that is if you get a waiter to help you. The drinks take ages to get to you and the food also takes a long time. The food is good but the service...is bad. The manager also has no regard for his clients he has a bad attitude as if he is doing you a favour.More

The owner and the lady serving ice cream were so rude to us. I am a local resident and have supported this restaurant many times. I hope you remember the hard times out of season Mr Pili Pili.

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants and we frequently visited since the day this restaurant opened. Nothing remained of the once awesome place. The waiters are so arrogant with bad attitudes. It felt like we did them a favor. The pizzas were...still great, but the cocktails tasted horrible. The restaurant used to have a great ambiance and vibe with great music. We couldn't hear any music outside. The toilets were dirty and disgusting. The worst is that my daughters cellphone disappeared off the table minutes after she showed us some photos. I made a hell of a scene as the GPS clearly showed it was on the premises. About 3 hours later we got a call that they "found" it in a menu. What a lie! The menus have wooden outsides, so it would have been seen clearly and the menus were already taken when she showed us some photos. The manager Vaughn was extremely unhelpful in this whole situation and he just said. His staff will never steal a cell. Pity that this restaurant has this horrible attitude after the whole Covid experience. Our advice. Stay away. Many other restaurants that really want to do business.More

This place used to be too notch. The service has become really poor with a "take it or leave it" attitude. We had to ask the waitron to sanitize the table before we sat down. The response was that they do it once a day,...the food is on the pates not on the table. All the meals arrived cold and then the replacement was raw. Time to stop frequentingMore
