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.

All of our meals were absolutely delicious. There are lots of vegetarian and vegan options and a kids menu. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Had a wellness bowl with falafel and an iced coffee. Sat outside with a lovely view of the harbour.

This spot has a great atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating, including dogs allowed outside. You will enjoy a view over the port while being served by pleasant and friendly staff. The coffee is amazing and the menu is full of delicious choices. We have...returned and will be again before we leave Portland.More

Today we went to Bahloo intending to have lunch. I ordered chai lattes in a mug (as I have previously) but when our drinks arrived, they were in glasses. I said that we had ordered mugs, and the waiter took them back inside. Shortly after...the person who took our order came back with the glasses and told us she’d taken the order for our drinks in mugs but that they serve chai lattes in glasses as they are ‘saving’ the mugs for other drinks. So, not only did she not explain this when I was ordering, she was borderline rude when she came back out insisting that we accept the drinks in the glasses. This was despite the fact that the cafe was not busy and I could see mugs on top of the coffee machine, so it was clearly not that they could not have served our drinks in mugs. Obviously if you have any sort of accessibility issues and need a mug you cannot have a chai latte at Bahloo.More

Highly Recommended. Pleasant indoor and outdoor settings, outdoor is overlooking Portland Bay. Short wait, though busy times. Food was presented well and delicious. Chap riding a Penny-Farthing bicycle arrived for coffee while we were there.
