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.

Lil Vinny, Raffa and the team did a great job welcoming us for the Wedding Reception we attended on 30th. On 1st Oct my Wife and I had lunch at the Sandstone Cafe, we know & appreciate good food and would like to say that...the food served to us for lunch was absolutely first rate, better than what we've been able to find in Noosa Heads, where we live.. When we are next in Sydney we'll make a point of stopping by for lunch or dinner, thank you and keep up the great work.More

A top Sunday! Always made to feel warmly welcomed and cared for at The Stonehouse Cafe. Food, wine and service exceptional. Our family group of 7 were so appreciative of the service, food and creative starter. My main of Sirloin and mushroom was the best...and most tender I have eaten anywhere. So recommend.More

Have been here a few times now for a work lunch and came back again to farewell a staff member. They can accomodate large groups and we had a lovely table outdoors which is under a covered area. The owner is lovely who welcomes you...and all staff also provide a great service. Good selection on the menu and everyone enjoyed whatever we ate. Better yet they also kindly allowed us to do split bills which was a great help. Good job Sandstone Cafe!More

Always love this cafe! Have been to Miramare for work Christmas functions and weddings over the years and always, always have a fantastic time. The staff are so friendly and familiar and the food is second to none! Today we thought we'd pop in for...lunch. It was buzzing, just love the atmosphere! We had the linguine with calamari and mussel special and also the Italian sausage ragu pasta. Both were very tasty and fresh; the pasta cooked just right. For sweets we shared a chocolate brownie and sfogliatelle - both delicious. The sfogliatelle was authentic and so good we had to take some more home for later! My cappucino was perfect, not bitter and so smooth. No wonder they were serving so many coffees. The staff were so helpful and cheerful. We will definitely be back soon.More

Fabulous staff and awesome food. The staff greeted us and offered us a choice of tables. The food was great and came out relatively quickly. It was very generous and very tasty.

Excellent experience with this location. Bonnie and his incredible team turned out to-die-for fresh food platters- enough to feed an army! Coffees flowed, service was quiet and well organised. Couldn’t fault a minute. The engagement for organisation was centred around what we wanted; the execution...was precise. Thank you to all for making my husband’s birthday so easy. TraceyMore

Had a great lunch with a group on a really busy Saturday, with lots of big groups. Little Vinnie was the ultimate host and very thoughtful. Everyone loved their meals and the staff were super. We will all go there again for sure!

Birthday get together with total 4 family. we sat inside and were well spaced from other tables. COVID registrations all available but no-one actually checked that we had registered. We had meatballs, chicken burger, chicken kiev and the prawn & calamari pasta. Chicken was superb,...burger and meatballs good. Pasta dish ingredients were very fresh and well cooked however the dish was way too well seasoned (salty) even for my tastes and I like a good degree of salt. Atmosphere was good, perhaps they were busier than they expected because an extra waiter would not have gone astray--although service was generally good. We would have liked to have used our Dine and Discover vouchers but they are not on the list to accept them. Maybe they did OK with takeaway during the lock downs. Will probably visit again and hopefully weather will allow us to sit outside as it looked very pleasant on their grassed area.More

I came here with my friend and we both had burgers; I had the chicken burger and she had the steak burger. Both burgers were delicious, and the chips too. I had a glass of sparkling wine too. The service was excellent and the owner...is a real character. All Covid-safe measures were taken. Overall this is an excellent restaurant/cafe in Terrey Hills and I will be backMore
