Description: 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.

Celebrated my birthday at Pipi and were wonderfully looked after by William and Dave. We ate our "usual" dishes of flounder and salmon salad and they were up to their usual high standard. And then a great surprise, a birthday dessert, lighted candle included! Such a delight. Many thanks guys.

It was a busy holiday weekend - I knew it wasn't going to be possible to get a table, so ordered takeaway pizzas instead. Great flavours and excellent base - much better than your big brand options.
The service and kitchen staff seemed to have the completely full restaurant under control.
Only had to wait a few minutes longer than predicted to have my order all packaged up and ready.

My friends and I go to Pipis for dinner every time we go away to Havelock together, once or twice a year. We always make this a feature of our visit because we always have so much fun! The staff are amazing and kind, all of them slight characters. The food is always delicious and fair priced, and the ambience is good! A must visit!

lovely and rustic and at home feel.
lots of families getting pizza. in door and out dining. get your own drinks out of the old fridge.
We had whole fish a flounder and a petite streak. Both were good.
Great stop in a small rural town in hawks bay area.
