Lovely outlook, staff fantastic and food was tasty and well presented but overpriced for portion size. Fish of the day $27 and received 2 small thin fillets in thick batter that wasn’t overly fresh and salmon $29 for 2 chicken nugget size pieces.

I went with a group of 12 friends for a celebration dinner that we had all saved for. We were all disappointed with our outing. The meals were expensive and of poor quality. Three meals were returned. They didn't even have enough chilled wine available.

What a great place to eat. The meals were amazing and what a great view. The service is quite incredible really. The staff couldn't have been better. Good wine list and the cocktails aren't too bad at all!

Delicious food with an exquisite view of Gisborne beaches! Family friendly and welcoming staff. I am a regular customer and I enjoy selecting a different meal each visit, there's a variety to suit everyone's taste buds.

We all enjoyed our delicious meals at Peppers, with attentive helpful service, the setting sun and to top it all off, an unexpected fireworks display along the beach as we were there on Saturday before Guy Fawkes. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
