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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

WOW ... What a recommendation it was. This will be our go to place from now on. We booked for breakfast ... and I would suggest making a booking or you may well miss out. Hubby and I ordered the Transylvania Big Breakfast. OMG ......What a big breakfast it was. The service was amazing. Very happy and friendly staff. Ask Kate if you can sample "the black stuff". Not going to tell you what it is ... but you won't be disappointed. Will be going back over and over to taste everything on the menu.More

Visited for breakfast after glowing recommendations. Without a doubt the best breakfast for many years. Quality, quantity, value for money and exemplary service. The food was magnificent and the friendly, attentive service was incredible. Went home with a selection of cakes for pudding later on...as well. Certainly a "must go" for anyone. Brilliant!!!More

This place is unbelievably good! If you like a euro food experience this place is it! I went for a covid coffee in my 15k, to meet a friend and we were just blown away with the quality of food and passionate care it’s was...made with. Ticked all our boxes and we can’t wait until we can actually sit in this cafe an enjoy every thing on offer. Awesome price too, very reasonable for high end food.More

This family owned Hungarian cafe is nothing less than a Awesomeness that happened to us on our visit to a nearby lake. From Food to Coffee to Chai to Parties, everything that was ordered was Bang-on. For newbies a two words of suggestion: Mix Grill...A La Transylvania Must Try Gives you a peek into beautiful Hungarian home-made sausages Langos with topping of your choice. This flaky version of their Pizza is Must Try. Unfortunately we couldn't try it as we were almost full but definitely returning. Family members running the cafe are genuinely very hospitable and friendly and welcoming, definitely the cherry on the cake. Easy on pocket and yumminess served with lot of love, this is definitely a must.More

I ordered a Cherry Studel to collect and have as a desert for my husbands special birthday last weekend. When ordering the lady i spoke to was very friendly and helpful. She advised it was 10 helpings, we easily got 14 helpings, honestly it was...as long as my arm, presented on a lovely platter with cellophane and ribbon, very decorative. The taste was as i said in my title 'ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS' served at room temperature with cream. Beautiful pastry filled with the most tasty cherries. Very European tasting. It was ready to collect and the price very reasonable for homemade yuminess, the family all approved so will try the apple strudel next time we have a celebration. There coffee and individual cakes are very nice also.More

Excellent food and outstanding Hospitality. Food taste really great. Make sure you book in advance before going . This is next to hallam Coles. Dont forget to try their cakes; specially Transylvania. All foods are prepared fresh and hand made. So if you want to...try something , when you book , better to inform early itself the food you want to try . This will make sure you get it as they will reserve it for youMore

So happy to have finally discovered this place! The food is not only authentic but absolutely delicious! We knew we couldn’t finish everything but we still ordered more food! The meatball soup (ciorba de perișoare) is life-giving and the mititei (skinless sausages) are to-die-for!!! Don’t...forget the cakes too which are a must (even though you’ll need to get them in a take-away container as you will be too full)! The couple who run the restaurant are also wonderful hosts who clearly know about hospitality. Wherever you are in Melbourne it is worth travelling to come to this great place to eat!More
