Very relaxed restaurant with good menu choices. Want a beer or soft drink then help yourself from the fridge (not free).

Great food. Warm and open staff and welcoming to visitors. Good fun. Want water? Go serve yourself; find the glasses and the tap. Hilarious.

Ordered two takeaway pizzas, quick production...too quick! Got them home and they were undercooked, the dough was sticking to the cardboard on one of them. After cooking them ourselves in the oven, we realised it was a complete rip off! The salami is cheap, olives...More

We spent three nights staying at Pipi Hotel just across the road & feasting at Pipi Cafe-best time, low key fun! We were looked after like kings and queens- bodies and souls were nourished, leaving feeling restored. Thanks Debbie & everyone who makes Pipi special

This authentic family run resturant is loud and lively, as famikies rub shoulders with strangers seated at trestled tables. Help yourself to the beer fridge or enjoy a local wine. Marry this with hand made italian focussed foods made with fresh Hawkes Bay produce and...More

Handmade gourmet pizza heaven, fresh figs, feta, and a home smoked salmon salad, gorgeous. Followed by the jelly tip ice cream (you know, for the kids 😉) and a golden peach shortcake, just like Nana's. Great spot for pizza in havelock north 🍕

If you come here you have to try the garlic bread, it is soooo delicious! We had the Salsicci pizza and then the tiramisu for dessert both of which were divine. The restaurant has a lovely cosy atmosphere, with a well stocked beer fridge and...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.
