We have supported Pili Pili through the years. Now not pet friendly and managers attitude unfriendly.

Enjoyed the beach atmosphere. Great spot for a lunch after a visit to the beach or just to enjoy a few drinks and light lunch or pizza with your feet in the sand. The food is served hot and fresh and the whisky room filled...with real special whisky’s to choose from is an exciting surprise for a whisky fan like me.More

I've made two visits to Pili Pili Beach Restaurant and their takeaway during March & May 2022. Both times, I had the ribs, these are really stand out and if you ask nicely the owner will explain to you the 3 day process of marinating...the ribs and getting them to fall completely off the bone.More

This place is not good at all. The first room they gave us had holes in the ceiling, dirty/damp towels, and the cold water in the shower didn’t work. The 2nd room had bird poop on the sheets and they never changed the sheets when...they “cleaned” the room. Just flipped the sheets over. And a hair in my drink… do not recommend!More

Enjoyed our lunch very much apart from the pizza ordered by one of our group. It had too much flour on the bottom and insufficient anchovies. The Sushi which was on special was excellent as was the fish and chips ordered. The service was good...and the setting was great. Will call again when next in the area.More

We are driving from George to Knysba often for pizza. Today was such a disappointment. We had excellent milkshakes, but the special pizzas was special bad. It was the first time we ordered the special. It was dry, almost no cheese and over cooked. It...was waiting outside the oven for some time, in the cold , and we had to ask the waiter to fetch it. Then we were over charged and wait some time to get the bill sorted out.More

We loved everything about Pili Pili! The location, just a few steps to the sand, was incredible. We could see the waves from our balcony and Myoli Beach couldn’t be more beautiful. The thing that stood out most was the staff. Always smiling, always there...to help, going above and beyond to make us feel cared for. Rise and Grind, the coffee shop, was a gift from God! Literally the best coffee ever! Always delicious, always hot, and always made with love! The restaurant was an utter gem! Great food, feet in the sand, happy atmosphere, and a staff that made you want to eat there three times a day! I can’t gush enough about the lovely vibe at Pili Pili. I miss it so much and I’m going to stay there again as soon as I possibly can! Love you guys :)More

We visited the venue in March 2021, service was good and food was lovely... a year later we’ve returned and I can’t believe this is the same place!!!!! The service was shockingly bad, the food was worse. We waited over 45 minutes for our food...(prawns dish), I then enquired about our order, no reason/apology for the late food and when it did eventually arrive it was cold and tasteless with the wrong side of choice. When I asked to speak to the manager he refused to come to the table, this man just could not be bothered at all. I will NEvER ever return to this venue and strongly suggest you give it a miss too - there are so much better places in the area.More

Hmmm, as a general rule guide dogs or service dogs get in free. A restaurant probably no the best place to take a dog, but their are outside seating and this is the coast and people are much more relaxed about dogs than in... More
