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.

What a pearl of a cafe. Literally on the beach with a view to die for. First time visitor with a local friend were spoiled with the food, service and energy that the cafe offered. An excellent menu with daily specials tempted us upon our...arrival. I had the special, a Thai beef Salad. Sensual, perfectly cooked and spicy beef complimented by a flavour full salad. One of the nicest meals I’ve had in a long time. A perfect location for two old friends to catch up.More

First time eating here. Made a booking as it was my birthday and they always look so busy when I’ve passed by. However they didn’t have my name on the list so no reserved table. Had to take a table just outside the kitchen. Coffee...was good but Long wait time for the food and it was average for the price. Place also needs a good clean and tables / chairs need to be spaced out as it’s quite cramped. .More

We were a family of 6 and order drinks, burgers, salmon bagel and blt. All of the food was adequate but generally overpriced for what you got. For example the hamburger was tasty on the small side for $23 but to have chips was an...additional $4 making it expensive at $27. The chips were Luke warm and minimal in number. Service and view very good but better options in the area for value for money.More

Celebrated my 80 th birthday with friends and couldn't have picked a better venue. The food, music & staff were all fantastic. Special thanks to Makala for arranging the event & relieving me of the stress. The effort by all the staff to make it...a very special night was greatly appreciated by all who came.More

My son and I had breakfast at Chill. As soon as I climbed the stairs and entered I thought how very average, old and in need of a good overhaul it needed. The cake display looked uninviting and disappointing. The front desk looked untidy and...messy. I ordered the waffles with Berry compote and maple syrup. Honestly the waffles were inedible. My knowledge of Belgian waffles is a lovely crisp outer crust and a soft interior. These were dried out which were not freshly made and were hard to cut and after one mouthful I told our waitress I couldn’t eat it. She immediately apologised and offered to get me something else. I ordered the smashed avocado on Turkish bread which arrived with a very small smearing of avocado. However it was tasty. My son enjoyed his full breakfast with poached eggs. So, when I visit our local cafés, especially when they have a breathtaking view with tourists’ looking for somewhere nice to eat while admiring our stunning coastline, I expect that the cafe should not look in need of a total overhaul and the food which was not cheap to be generous and freshly made. They should remove the waffles from the menu if they can’t serve them fresh especially as the food isn’t cheap. Overall a disappointmentMore

Beautiful location but the meals are always a bit hit and miss. VERY crowded with tables close together. Don't be surprised to have a dog nestled beside your chair. Service is only 'fair' as mistakes often occur with the order.

Been here a couple of times - it has a good atmosphere and nice food. Recommend the oysters - especially at happy hour. Waitress was hilarious.

Lovely spot looking over the water.. the local fresh Spanish mackerel did not taste fresh.. the crumbs were like sheets of cardboard and the fish had a hard crust of crumb all around it. Prawn skewers is 3 prawns for $17. The oil the fish...and chips were cooked in tasted old. Other than that nice staff and view.More

We came for breakfast on Easter Sunday & took a walk along the Esplanade afterwards. The staff/service was very good & there are great views from Chill 89 out over the water to Bribie Island. You couldn’t ask for a much better location. For $96...inc 15% public holiday surcharge it was expensive for 3 breakfasts & a coffee but it was worth it & the meals came out very promptly despite it being busy. We had veg eggs benny (mixed grill veggies), the big breakfast (big indeed) & breaky special (bacon/eggs/tomato/Turkish toast). It was a beautiful sunny day & the walk afterwards along the waterfront & through the park was good exercise. Mum and Dad were interested in how much the area had developed over the years being locals from way back & pointed out the Gemini Resort where we stayed with family in the 80s was still standing (a fancy resort back in the day).More

Ordered the ribs for lunch. $33 for Three tiny ribs and a handful of sweet potato fries with a bit of lettuce on the side was absolutely ridiculous . The tiniest plate of food for such a huge price. The ribs were tasty but would...not go back at the prices they have been jacked up to.More

Too many tables in a small area. Too many people booked in for the size of the restaurant. Staff run off their feet. Too long to wait for meals. So noisy could not even talk across the table. Took an hour from when the first...person on our table got their meal till the last person. Not acceptable.More
