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.

Great spot, new manager Nico was very warm and friendly. Had the house made muffin which was amazing. Was having such a good time stayed for 2 cups of coffee, would have stayed for a third if I didn't have such a busy day ahead of me.

Arrived at 1 pm on a Sunday. The place looked moderately busy but there seemed to be plenty of staff and were immediately shown to a table. I had to step over spilled food on the floor to get to my seat. Ordered a flat white and the Ozmosis Benedict with pulled beef for $27 which took 8 and 23 minutes respectively to arrive. The food was fine, but rather expensive for no particular reason (no view and certainly not in the city). We were also brought warm water to drink (on a humid 30°C day). When it came time to pay we had to queue up behind other diners because it took 3 people to operate the payment system which had apparently broken down (there was some mumbling about the Internet, etc), but it looked more like incompetence to me. We thought we would be enjoying an experience in the suburbs rather than staying in the city, but it was not to be. It wasn't worth the trip.

As part of our weekly check up of breakfast options in cairns , Ozmosis scores well . The service was friendly and fast .. menu offered lots of tempting options and the presentation of the meal was spot on .. if I am going to be at all fussy my breakfast tea was a little bitter , it was loose leaf which is good .. but would have preferred a smoother taste .. but I am a connoisseur of English breakfast tea !

This was our favourite coffee place a few years back when we lived in Cairns. We decided to have a late breekie. Didn’t let us down although one staff member seemed as though we were interrupting him.

We are locals and would love to make this a regular gig (who doesn't love $10 margaritas?!). Unfortunately, we've received miserable service here too many times and been made to feel like an inconvenience by staff. Lucky for us, neighbouring competition is doing a great job.

We sat down for dinner at 8, only us 2 at the restaurant, the guy that served us took our orders with complementary story telling of his life in Australia, I don’t mind a little conversation but I’m a customer not your bestie especially if I’m having dinner with my partner you should understand when to drop the conversation. Then they served us the mains and nobody came back to us, we sat with dirty plates in front of us for half an hour, 5 people working too busy doing not sure what. Then when they finally decided to come to us we asked for desserts and we got told kitchen closed at 9. Manager brought us the bill and didnt even apologise. If I sit down for dinner I espect to have dinner from start to finish or at least to be informed if kitchen is about to close, especially if 5 people are working and we are the only customers in the restaurant and we could have had our dessert if someone would have come to us. So food was okey but service was terrible. And the manager seemed very annoyed too… very disappointing.

Dined with 3 friends. We ordered only mains and cannoli each for dessert (ordered at same time as main). It took 1.5hrs to get our mains despite asking where they were a couple of times… we were given a free garlic bread but no real apology for the delay. To be fair the meals were nice when they finally arrived. 20mins after we finished mains our preordered dessert had still not been brought to the table… we asked for dessert… and we asked again for dessert only to be told it was “being processed”… half an hour later still no dessert. We cancelled the order for our desserts that we had placed 2.5HRS earlier. Seriously it does not take 50mins to put a cannoli on a plate !!! (We also watched as the table of four next to us got up and cancelled their orders because service was taking too long and they had somewhere else to be.) No apology for the extremely bad service was offered. As a born & breed local of 53yrs I definitely won’t recommend dining here. Extremely bad service !!

Nice vibe. Food was well presented and tasted good. Nothing to rave about but still very enjoyable. Seating is all outside (mostly undercover)

Complete lack of service. Stinks like urine down the side section and zero service in this section too. I know they are busy - but the staff just ignored us and served others. Waited for someone to take drinks order - had to follow up. Waited for meals - had to follow up - yes there was ‘a mix up’ . No apology or acknowledgment - from waiter or manager. Not an enjoyable breakfast.

Food and service was great and a really nice location and atmosphere. Had breakfast here twice and poached eggs on toast did not disappoint.

We had a stopover in Cairns with our cavoodle so our friend booked this spot for brunch. What a delight. Wonderful food and service and some bacon for our dog. All happy! Thanks so much to the team.

We had coffee and breakfast. Coffee was good but the service, or lack there of, is poor. Claim to be table service but I ended up ordering from the counter because no one showed up to take our order. Really need to pick their game up with the completion in the area.

Went to Osmosis for dinner we sat there no service because the floor manager was to busy doing other things took 15 minutes to get a glass of water but in saying that we had to ask and it was warm water on a very hot night . Very unfriendly woman . Another 15 minutes we wanted a drink we had to ask again and her face said it all how dare we ask her to do her job . She is the rudest person l have ever met my friends could not believe her bad ,rude behaviour and we decided just to have drinks and we went on to Noah for dinner . Where we were welcomed ,immediately given cold water and staff was polite and happy .

What could have been a great last night out in our trip to Cairns was a rather terrible experience. We did have a table booked, got seated, but then it took 20min until someone cared about taking our orders. Not yet knowing what would be coming next, this was actually speedy. While waiting for for food, we noticed that the majority of other guests had no food yet and where nervously looking for staff and started complaining. Some even left after the starter. Well, we better would have as well. It took nearly 2h until we finally got our mains, while staff already had started cleaning up the place. And while almost all guests that night waited for ages, people frequently popped in to grab takeaway orders - something obviously handled at much higher priority. Staff finally more or less openly confirmed, that they don't really mind if guests would come back or not.
