Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

How is it so hard for a presumably trained chef to prepare food that is better than I can prepare at home myself. Ordered a Caesar Salad with chicken at a cost of $31. Out it comes looking interesting. Wrong. The chicken was fridge cold and cooked yesterday. Back it goes to the kitchen to be replaced by freshly cooked chicken closer to the grilled chicken the waitress had described. Menu described sour dough croutons. Is that what you call the tiny squares bought in bulk at any supermarket. Not that hard to toss bread slices in a pan with garlic butter and cook until crisp. And shaved parmesan may also have lifted the dish.
I have been consistently disappointed with the food here for far too long and paying customers deserve better. You get a million dollar view of the sea and below par food. That's it. Go elsewhere.

DO NOT GO HERE!!!
All we wanted was a coffee and a cake1 Shouldn't be hard at a prominently located Melbourne cafe should it?

FIRST: You can't order by going to the register or talking to a waiter. No, just spend 10mins punching in your order using their App (via QR Code) - which btw wants your all your personal details inc credit card, email address, etc, etc BEFORE you get anywhere.

SECOND: No cake, dessert slice or anything available a 'full monty' dessert costing around $30

THIRD: One coffee arrives with about a quarter of the contents spilt all over the saucer. It's my job to to clean it up as well.

FOURTH: Very ordinary coffee as well. Get a double shot if you want to taste the coffee.

I actually dislike negative reviews except when a place is really terrible - but believe me, this place is awful (NB: Only talking about the downstairs cafe - not the restaurant upstairs)

Worst customer service experience I have had! Staff were incredibly rude and insulting! I walked out pinching myself thinking ‘did that really happen’. This business has forgotten the importance of the ‘customer’. They don’t deserve a business, honestly nothing more than appalling- do not support this place!

Bought a latte and a slice of orange cake. $9.50. So disappointing. Coffee was bitter and so was the cake. I expected better. Supposed to have been a large coffee but the cups are just taller and skinnier. It would be interesting if we tested quantity against a regular cup size. Won’t be rushing back.

Dined before noon so we could only have an outside table . The problem is that you must order via an app. When we wanted a coffee later we had to order on the app again . Then later we wanted a cake that wasn’t on the menu app . Service was poor . Food came but not cutlery yet . We look forward to chicken wings but when we ordered buffalo wings there were only 2 wings, the rest drumsticks . Meal was dry too . Presentation was ok .

Did not even make our way into the restaurant. After being spoken to rudely by the front of house staff member, we decided to leave and go to the Royal Brighton Yacht Club where we were greeted warmly and had a lovely evening.

I went to meet a colleague at Middle Brighton Baths. My colleague was already there when I arrived, and we waited for 15 minutes. There only appeared to be one person working behind the bar, and she was very busy. Eventually a chef appeared from the kitchen, and we asked if there was anyone around so that we could place an order. He said he'd try to find someone. After another 10 minutes (25 minute wait in total) we gave up and left. My colleague spoke quietly to the person behind the bar, explaining why we were leaving, and was simply told 'ok'. Really disappointing as our team used to meet here semi-regularly. We won't be back.

We will never come back here again, after spending many weekends here with my kids over the years. The owner was rude and unreasonable, and I left the minute I paid. Thats how bad it was.

Really loved the enclosed space on one of the last days of summer. Perfect opportunity to take a dip and reflect on bathing trends over the years. The kids are safely enclosed and busy jumping off the boardwalk. Fantastic :)

This is such a great spot but the cafe downstairs is tired and needs some love. Food is overpriced and we were disappointed with our dinner. We ordered the beef burger, mushroom burger, fish and chips and kids chicken strips and fries. Chips seemed to be re-cooked and very oily. We left hungry and dissatisfied with the meal.

Take the kids for a play but stick to the drinks.
