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.

We celebrated my son’s birthday at the Waffling Whale. Though we had booked a table everything felt very haphazard and it did not feel like things were under control. We eventually received a table. The staff were friendly, though a little difficult to get hold...of at times. The waffle options and milkshakes were great and this was the main reason for heading through. Though the sugar overload can get a bit much. We had a good time.More

Best waffles in Plett! The Chicken & Maple syrup is a must! Friendly staff and delicious food. Ideal outing for breakfast, lunch or after a long day on the beach.

On recommendations from family stopped in for coffee and a light lunch. Ordered two coffees and two savoury waffles. Twenty five minutes later (I kid you not) nothing had arrived. My requests for service went unheeded. In the end we got up and started walking...out when the two waffles arrived (still no coffee’s) I again I had to ask for the coffee’s which then finally arrived. On observation, yes they were busy, but there were some seven waitrons that I counted all falling over themselves but with no direction or guidance from anyone in charge. Certainly won’t be back in a hurryMore

Thought we would give this place a try today as the big waffle whale caught our attention. The establishment is clean and has been renovated, so it looks great! The waffles are delicious and the whale shape is a quirky touch! The service is slow...and their is no atmosphere so hopefully they can work on this!More
