We have dined several times at the Pier Side Cafe and each time it gets better and better.
The staff are friendly,courteous and nothing is a problem.They go the extra mile, and on top of that the food is simply divine.I would highly recommend that you take a trip out to New Brighton and visit the cafe and try it for yourselves.I guarantee you wont be disappointed. Well done guys. See you soon.
Last night I went to this place with my friend, who lives in New Brighton. There really wasn’t allot of choice in the area and she raved about it so off we went.
Being from out of town, I didn’t really know what to expect, well, am I glad we did. The location is stunning. The Pier. The Beach. You could smell the salt air
The service was friendly, despite the fact that the wait staff were very busy but the food was incredible. We started with the garlic loaf and the mussels which were both beautiful but it was the steak that left me speechless
I have traveled the world and it has to be one of the best I have ever had. There was nothing flashy about the meal, although it was presented beautifully, but it was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth. I could have cut it with my spoon
It was suprising in that you simply don’t expect this quality and standard at these prices. Highly recommend. A+++++
Four star rating would be for the food ONLY. The restaurant was really cold. I like to be warm and relaxed when I eat. The service was terrible. I was dining with my partner and the waitress was foreign and extremely flirtatous with him. It was hard to communicate and understand her heavy foreign accent. Both waitresses had a turn at banging into the back of my chair when serving a large group behind me and no apologies were made. The food was lovely and presented beautifully though. The service and the cold dining area lets the place down. We won’t be back unless they sort that out.
Based on my meals and meals friends had (separately), we agreed this is a surprisingly excellent place to dine. The steak was cooked to absolute perfection and amazingly tender — like you could nearly cut it with a fork. The best I’ve had in many years. The salmon was brilliant also (but could be a tad larger portion for the money). Super service that was sincerely helpful. Pleasant surroundings. The location could hardly be better –we strolled down the pier to walk off our meals (the plaster-you-against-the-wall wind could have been lighter, but can’t expect a restaurant to arrange everything for the evening!).
Great food, good service, great bar!
At last, something in New Brighton that offers a nice environment, and a bar that does food from a kitchen rather a deep fryer
I just had the best meal at Pierside cafe, with their primo location and delicious food how could I not enjoy sitting outside lapping up the sun and sipping on cool pre-lunch drink .
The staff were friendly without being in your face and are very knowledgeable about the menu. I had the Lap Lap curry and my partner had the fresh fish salad both of our meals were fantastic and we left full and happy! I would highly recommend Pierside Café and I will definitely be back for another visit or 2 or 3……. YUM!!:)
As an avid supporter of New Brighton Businesses I was interested to see if the newly introduced menu would warrant a second visit to the Pierside Cafe. I took my friend who had been visiting from the UK there for lunch on Sunday before her afternoon departure and prayed that the food and service would leave a positive final impression on her. I’m pleased to say that not only was the food exceptional but that I was very impressed with the pricing as well. With specials of the day at an affordable price which I felt suitable to the area we were impressed to see variety that suited a range of tastes. I indulged in the Salad from the specials menu which was a hearty helping of fresh greens with large chunks of deliciously marinated chicken and my friend had the pasta with a well spiced and freshly cooked sauce. Our waitress was on the ball, friendly and endlessly helpful. The ambiance was lovely and we both agreed that the place was comfortably decorated and spacious. I would recommend to all even if you have been here before the new menu is well worth another visit … or 3.
