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.

Came here mainly due to the reviews and let me tell you, they’re on the money. Great little restaurant, great decor (funky) and great nice staff. Not a criticism but the menu is a bit mixed of various foods but there a good thing as...there are many themes but we chose from the tapas menu. We started with some chicken tenderloin skewers which were tasty but better things to come with sizzling prawns in a tomato inspired sauce followed by the best meatballs I’ve ever had with some delightful crispy toasted bread. The salmon came next served with a different type of salad I’d never put with salmon with walnuts and cranberries but it worked. Last but not least the seafood hot pot came again with a nice tomato sauce and crunch toasted bread. No room for dessert. The wine list was small but covered all the necessary items for me and I can recommend the Hay Shed (WA) Cabernet Merlot. The staff were attentive but not intrusive and he even apologised for our 4th tapa not coming quick enough but it gave us time to recover a tad. A great little find and I can see this becoming a regular venue to come to. Loved it.More

Very interesting location next to McDonald’s on one side and a 7/11 store on the other side. Parking was easy. Food was very nicely cooked and presentation was also good. I wouldn’t call it amazing but had no complaints. The decor is also a little...quirky but I say this as a positive and not a negative.More

Just a short walk from the heart of Burleigh is this little gem. Food and staff were amazing. Our waitress assisted us with our tapas selections which were fantastic and the chef personally presented my husband’s desert with a written birthday message and sparkler. Highly...recommend, we’ll be returning again whilst we’re here on holidays to try the beef cheeks.More
