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.

Amazing breakfast, great coffee, very reasonably priced. A nice quiet spot to stop on Sturt Street. Service was an ask for what you want/need approach which we found refreshing. Planning to come back sometime to sample the moussaka!

We popped here for a lunchtime meal. The staff were okay, but not particularly friendly. We ordered Spaghetti Bolognaise which was pretty tasteless and instead of a good Italian meal tasted more like something out of a jar, meat was in clumps and tasted poor...quality. My advice steer clear.More

no gloves used at any time in preparing the steak sandwich or the chicken roll,steak was tough as boot leather, the egg could have been used as rubber ball,for a restaurant it was disgusting,the only thing that was any good was the coffee.

Fortune smiled when I parked car outside this establishment. Open at 11 am and knew my darling at home might like some Greek-style lamb and salad. Grabbed a souvlaki for myself. Friendly owner chatted delightfully about our respective struggles in crazy times. Added baklava to...my order. At home all found wonderfully fresh and delicious. Happy eating.More

This cafe has a casual feel. There is a good range of traditional meals to choose from. The Greek style lamb chops, spaghetti bolognaise, Napoletana and fresh juices were all good.

I went in to this restaurant to get a takeaway coffee. There were two men behind the counter, both of whom saw me come in and neither acknowledged me in any way. They continued to go about their business, exchanging conversation with each other for...around two minutes without even looking at me. I was about ten seconds away from walking out the door when one of them asked me what I wanted. While I waited for the coffee to be made another lady came in. One of the men looked at her and acted like she wasn't even there whilst continuing to go about his business. Eventually, after being ignored, she left. The same man then asked for my payment, no please or thank you at any point. The other man eventually dumped the coffee on the bench, said "there's your coffee" and walked away. I may have only been buying coffee but based on this experience, I will definitely not step foot in this place again.More
