Stopped off to get out of the rain for a quick meal at Cheddos on our way home. In summary the food was excellent and keenly priced. We only had a main meal each plus a beer and coffee and were well satisfied with both the quantity and quality. The tapas looked interesting and maybe next time we will go... More

We were driving from Sydney to Jervis Bay and happened across this cute little restaurant. The dinner menu is short but amazing and unique. We each had one of the specials and it was a quality gourmet dinner that tasted fresh and healthy. The house wine was also wonderful and a surprise at $7 a glass. It was the best... More

We wanted to try somewhere new so had a late breakfast here the other day. The food was nice and service was pleasant. Coffee was good. Was disappointed to find out that they had no avocado which was in both the dishes we ordered, so I had to select an alternative dish. It's not really a good sign when they... More

We haven't been to Chedo's for a couple of years so decided it was time to try again. The decor was pleasant and the service was friendly but there wasn't much else to be said in its favour. A fairly straightforward shared starter took more than half an hour to arrive. One main meal arrived ahead of the others. Two... More

What a wonderful evening we had at this little gem in the northern suburbs of Wollongong! The atmosphere was warm and friendly as were the staff. Every request was answered politely and with a smile. We shared entrees. - garlic prawns with chorizo, salt and pepper calamari (so tender) and haloumi with chick pea purée and roasted hazelnuts in honey... More

I have previously written a review about Chedo's which now sadly no longer applies, this café serves underwhelming and overpriced food, have had much the same experience as other reviews, 45 minute wait for staggered, cold and stale burgers. Won't be back

Arrived for Sunday lunch, ordered beer battered barramundi & salt and pepper squid, baby octopus with rocket & pine nut salad. Our meals were served, mine was missing the baby octopus & the pine nuts. I notified the waitress who then went to speak to the chef, the waitress returned with a small bowl of raw pine nuts, unfortunately not... More

Good afternoon KAY My apologies on the lack of pine nuts on your squid , this was a kitchen error most defiantly , I'm glad they were given to you eventually, As for the octopus yes the staff were made aware by the chef that it had run out , this happens from time to time due to its popularity...

Dropped in by chance. Pretty basic menu for lunch. But dinner looked a bit more exciting. Prices are a bit high but service ok. Ordered the fish which was fantastic! Angus steak burger was ok. Prices range from 18.50 up. Nice atmosphere with music. Staff happy to let you sit and chat !

Visited Chedos for lunch on a Friday. There were three or four other parties there; by no means busy. There was only one person visible in the café - and maybe that was the problem. This poor lady seemed to be making coffee and juice, as well as running the floor. We sat at a table and looked hopefully at... More

Rating this restaurant 1 is too much, 1 hour wait to be served stale hamburgers is not good enough, don't know what is happening with this restaurant it's service and food have declined drastically, will not be back
