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.

I ordered the Avo Smash, but what I got was bacon and eggs on toast splotched with avocado that was acidic (too much lemon juice). It was.very unpleasant. Avo Smash is meant to feature creamy avocado as the hero of the dish. This is not...the first time I have felt underwhelmed by Robert Harris.More

Although Robert Harris has a good selection of food the quality varies. From the menu, the breakfast stack is generous and tasty but the avo stack is miserly (not enough avocado to qualify as a stack). The cabinet good is a bit if a lucky...dip.... sometimes fresh, sometimes not, but the coffee is good and the staff are nice.More

The food selection at RH looked good. I chose a flakey chicken filo parcel. It was unrecognisable when presented as it had been pressed flat into a toaster and the ‘pastry’ was tough and very chewy. The point of filo is the flakiness. Big fail.

Premises neat and tidy. Typical shopping mall cafe. Cabinet food standard for the type off business. Prices par for the course. Service reasonable although maybe things could have been sped up a little. Coffee could have been a bit hotter. Staff polite

Not like it used to be. Value for money average. Small bowl of vegetable salad was SMALL! The blueberry muffins didn't have a lot of blueberries in them, & we were not asked if we wanted them heated or not. My friend's hot chocolate was...on the small side too, & the marsh mallows didn't taste fresh.More

Lunch with friends for a catch up. Service was slow. Cakes were slightly dry, not as fresh as expected. Food on the expensive scale.

Have been patronising this cafe every week for over two years now. While there are many positive aspects to it, there is two issues that continue to be on-going. When i ask for my coffee to be made to specific requirements, I very seldom get...what I ask for. Even though they write the specifics down, often the result is not what I ask for. I ask for my food to be extra, extra hot but I usually have to go back and ask for it to be heated longer. Most of the staff are pleasant but I am starting to feel like they are taking the mickey by doing as they please.More

If you like a good "flat white" then this is the best Robert Harris shop in Hamilton to go to. Food I've had has always been good too. I am definitely a regular customer here, so although this review is dated January 2017, I probably...visit this cafe on average once per week!More

Robert Harris was a nice place to stop and grab a bite to eat. I ordered the lasagne and thought it would be far to much to eat but ended up eating it all as it was that delicious! Would highly recommend getting the lasagne...great mix of beef and vegetable as well. They should invest in some number holders that aren't crooked and sit nicely on the tables though. Quick and happy customer service so all in all was a great experience - will be back if I need a quick stop again.More

Eating at Robert Harris is a bit of a Time warp. Suiting generally an older group, there is a standard mix of scones, savouries and cabinet slices. Table Service can be slow at times. The food is always fresh, coffee always good. Pricing is on...the lower side of average. We keep returning.More
