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

An easy place to pop in for a relaxed, no frills pizza or meal. Very friendly and prompt service. Lots of families dining and kids clearly feel very at home here. It's nothing flash but great for a group or family at a reasonable price...More

Very popular busy eatery, I wouldn't go there if I was the kind of person that worries about having her table cleared but I'm not so I LOVED it!! Awesome value, great vibe

Looks like the place to be even on a Sunday night. As always, fantastic atmosphere, food, wine and service. Cannot fault. If you're after silver service and quiet table talk this is NOT the place for you. This is like a family cantina with a...More

Tuesday evening in August. Cold night. Warm heater at the door. Caroline had bought the cookbook by Alexandra Tylee earlier that day and wanted to try a few of her recipes - one, possibly the original recipe Cafe de Paris butter. Pipi doesn't take bookings...More

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.
