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.

A small but delicious breakfast menu, beautiful setting & environment, friendly & efficient staff, and adequate parking all makes for a great morning experience. They are dog friendly and even have a dog menu (something I've never seen before)!! We will be back.

Lunch today at Guru was terrible. Service wasn’t good. The waitress didn’t want to be there and we felt her total disinterest. The menu was very disappointing. My grandson ordered fish and chips from the kid’s menu. Okay, there was no chips, not their fault...the waitress said because of a lack of potatoes. However after lunch I visited Erbachers and there were bags and bags of potatoes. Ever heard of ‘make your own’. So then my daughter and grandson went to the counter to buy some ground coffee to take home, and as a side note, the waitress said “By the way there is no fish”. This was after we had discussed him having a salad in place of he chips. He then ordered a cheeseburger. But quite some time later, out came “The big cheese”. This was on the adult’s menu NOT the kid’s menu! But we were charged for the adult size which wasn’t eaten. Price gouging! I could go on but I will finish with…don’t bother!More

We visited Guru Life this week for their special curry evening. The food was delicious...sweet chicken curry, goat and a very tasty dahl and naan bread, combined with a relaxing atmosphere in jungle surroundings, made our evening perfect. Excellent service. Friendly staff. Recommend highly.

As Colin had this on his show, of course we had to visit as we drove to Brisbane. The place is clean, has a nice atmosphere & serves good coffee. I think if you’re visiting from a ‘city’, you may find this service slow. But...what’s the point in rushing right? The place is serene and has birds chirping away whilst you wait. The locals definitely seem at ease with the slower pace. We ordered the Brekky roll and muffin which were both tasty and the service was super friendly. Overall, experienced the guru-ism of life.More

I had been looking forward to dining at Guru Life since seeing the revamp on TV, and I was very disappointed. The staff were friendly and prompt to take my order, but the menu could have been more inspiring. I decided on a Gado Gado...salad, which took 20 minutes, and I was the only person waiting for food in the restaurant. You have lost me for good.More

We visited after seeing them on TV and all I can say is I don’t know how bad they were before but we didn’t experience much of an improvement, except that the staff were friendly, well at least the lady that served us was. We...ordered 2 beers and a flat bread wrap and cheese burger. We had to ask to for the beers again after 15 minutes (it was not busy) the waitress chased them up and apologised but mentioned that she didn’t work in the bar(?). The cheeseburger was really nice but the flatbread wrap was inedible, the flatbread was hard, the chicken that was on it was nice but definitely not worth the $20 price tag. Thankfully we are only visiting the area but would not go there again if we lived closer. A total waste of a driveMore

We were looking forward to the new revamped guru life. Unfortunately the service was lacking. We were sat for 15 minutes before our order was taken. We ordered drinks too. One drink came and the other I had to remind the staff 10 minutes after....45 minutes later our food arrived nothing to rave about hamburger very oily and bun fell apart. The Morrocan wrap was very spicy and quite oily too. Well we have had our experience and won’t rush back. Good luck hope this comment helps to improve the service and quality.More

Aware of recent makeover via TV show thought we would support a local. Sadly we were seriously underwhelmed. Service ambience and general feel was great showed definite improvements. However the food/menu was lacklustre meagre and limited. I had something that was called The BIG Cheese...- it was neither big or cheesy - small burger bun with transparent slice of processed American cheese and a sad piece of lettuce with an average pattie. My wife had a chicken salad which had exactly four small pieces of chicken (After ordering we heard a waitperson telling others that they had run out of chicken and it seemed most other things.More

Used to enjoy this cafe regularly when I first moved to the Coast 6 years ago. Sadly, both food and service then suffered a decline in recent years. However, after a visit with friends today, I am delighted to see the turn around. Back to...good customer service and tasty food served on real crockery with real cutlery. Despite a minor hiccup with one coffee, the ambience was lovely and the staff friendly and helpful. Will be spreading the word and returning regularly again.More

40 mins after we had ordered, I approached the staff to find out there was an issue with the printer and our order was missed and “slipped through the cracks”. We were finally eating an hour after ordering.

We booked in for the Mothers Day set meal. We saw the price and thought. It was expensive for just a drink, small meal and dessert but we thought It’d be special! We’d also been to there Valentines Day set menu. We rocked up excited...and was left feeling super disappointed. Absolutely nothing was done to make it special. NOTHING! They charged a fortune and couldn’t even put a flower on the table. Staff were miserable and whinged about being tired because they had a wedding in the night prior and didn’t get home till late.. so that’s probably why no effort at all was made to make any mums feel special on the day. Other families around us felt the same way….. left feeling ripped off and deflated. Such a shame .. this place used to be amazing. I’m late to righting this but had to share my experience…More

Yes I saw a dog there but the owner was in the outdoor area so it's probably ok.
