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.

Excellent atmosphere and service was very, very good even though the restaurant was fully booked on both occasions we went. On both occasions meals were of high standard and value for money.

As expected on New Year eve the restaurant was fully booked. Our meals arrived about 40 minutes later. We ordered garlic prawns and they were happy to substitute rice for fettuccine instead. The Jack Daniels baby pork ribs were delicious and there were 10 of...them and I ate them all.More

Arrived in Portland after a day touring GOR. Went to two hotels and was ignored. Went to Royal Hotel and they had both the AFL and NRL on which was great. Nil at the other establishments. Service was friendly and obliging. I ordered a fish...dish off the specials menu. Immediately could tell it was fresh and plentiful. Was one of the better fish dishes for sometime. All in all was a comfortable experience and would go back.More
