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 stunning Kangaroo Point location this was. Waterfront views of Brissie- we were there on a stunning winters day. We shared the tapas plate between two (could easily feed three) so I had leftovers to take home. The meatballs were filled with flavour, the...cauliflower was absolutely delicious and chicken kebabs perfectly cooked. Will be back.More

I had previously visited Medley several times a few years ago and was looking forward to breakfasting there again this morning. I was very disappointed in the quality of the food and the high prices now charged. The ham was very ordinary, over salty packet...stuff and the mushrooms didn't taste freshly fried either. Even though the menu is comprehensive, several items we asked for were not available. A disappointing experience. Thank heavens the view hadn't changed.More

Came across this cafe while on a walk from our hotel and stopped in for lunch. Had the share plate for 2 for lunch between 3 of us. Yummo! Well worth the stop. So good! Great location and atmosphere, even in the rain.

After heading to Medley to Celebrate my father in laws birthday, we unfortunately had possibly my worst experience at a restaurant. 4/5 meals were served, when the fifth was asked for, we were told it’s coming…20mins later we ask again, oh shock horror when we...hadn’t received yet. After 30mins of waiting and a cold meal served and a very disappointed guest we were asked if a coffee would make up for the issue… Once the issue was raised with the waitstaff, we were ignored and avoided. Very disappointed in venue that has so much potential. Don’t waste your time or your money.More

Took my sister here for special birthday breakfast. After an hour 2 of the 3 meals arrived. 10 minutes later staff came to say sorry they had forgotten to order the 3rd meal. Said it was being prepared now and offered a complimentary coffee. A...further 30 minutes later, still no meal and no complimentary coffee. We had to leave due to parking timing out. I noticed we were not the only ones waiting a long time for meals as staff did go around to many tables apologizing. Great location spoiled by very bad service.More

Café hopping at Brisbane. Riding the e-scooter along Brisbane river and spot the @medleykp . Enjoyed my brunch with flat white there. The omelette was full of crab meat! A silent and relaxing place for me to spend my morning.

This used to be a good restaurant, but seems something has changed. Food was quite ordinary, service team seemed inexperienced and not very happy. Me he was severely limited with only 3 lunch dishes and all day breakfast….but they ran out of bacon at breakfast...so go figure. Definitely will not return.More

Had around 25 people for a birthday get together. Sit down meal and drinks for all. The wine selection was fine, lots of non-alcoholic drinks to choose from too. The location of Medley is fabulous and the service from Nick and his team was just...right - attentive but never pushy. Everyone was happy with the food, starters, mains and cakes were all delicious. We are very happy with the experience, would happily recommend.More

Hi there - Would Medley be open for dinner this Wednesday by any chance? I'm hoping you may have extended your opening hours in the build up to Christmas, as iId like to try the dinner menu out with a friend who's never been to your R estaurant. Also, after reading some of the reviews here, I'd like to confirm that I too found the Asian-looking waitress abrupt, bordering on rude. On the other hand, the French waitress with the pretty lipstick is a real gem: friendly, efficient at her job and a compliment to the splendid view and tasty breakfast food we've tried on several occasions. We always hope to get her as there's never been slow service with her looking after us, but a couple of times when we went to the counter to pay, the abrupt one undone all her good work with poor service. I don't know how she could be so grumpy with such a pretty view to enjoy at work. I must say there was a new Asian waitress that served us this weekend, who was just as sweet as the French lady - maybe you've already rectified 'the problem'!! I'm very happy to recommend your restaurant all things considered 😊
