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.

Guyala never disappoints, but OMG, their lobster mac and cheese special today was next level! The most delicious mac and cheese I’ve ever eaten with the added bonus of copious amounts of beautiful lobster! Was lucky to get it as it was a carry over...special from the previous day’s public holiday special, but rumour has it, you can get it any time if you preorder a few days in advance, so I’m definitely going to try that in the future, as I can’t wait until the next public holiday!More

Walked by and stopped for lunch as the cafe looked very nice. The menu had classic brunch dishes with a Vietnamese twist. I had ‘Good morning Vietnam’ which is a rice flour & turmeric pancake with twice cooked pork belly and Asian veg with a...green paw paw salad. Everything had great flavour. Loved it. My partner had the Roo ben with chats. The chats were excellent, the roo great snd tasty but they thought the focaccia it was served in was a tad dry. The prices were a little more than we Melbournians are accustomed to paying for brunch/ lunch goodies, but this is Cairns and cost of produce has always been higher and naturally cafes need to pass that through. Nice service, nice cafe , good music playing at the right volume and tasty food.More

You can stroll the Cairns Esplanade and find this lovely spot for breakfast at the end. It was buzzing and we were grateful to be sat inside for breakfast. The food was enjoyable and freshly made. It arrived quickly too. Lovely ambience also.
