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.

I brought Takeaway Salt & Pepper squid and chips as the Restaurant was full, they certainly don't put any love into their takeaway menu, the Calamari was so ordinary and not much of it, i couldn't eat the chips, very bland. $20

The food was reasonable but, flies bothered us all through the meal, trying to land on our plates. Not just one or two, lots.

I ordered a Surf and Turf and my wife ordered two entrees: Salt and Pepper Squid and Sea Scallops. The rib fillet was very tasty (if just slightly overcooked) and the scallops were perfect - full of flavour and just barely cooked. My wife's squid...was the best! They had an excellent selection of wines, and the Rose we chose was very good. Even the bread we had before our meal was delicious. Service was fine.More

We had a lovely lunch experience at The Terrace Restaurant for our wedding anniversary. The food was exceptional, as was the service. A very nice window table was provided, which made the experience so much nicer. We ordered the seafood platter for two. You need...to go on an empty stomach as it is just amazing and everything is delicious, especially the Seafood Chowder. Highly recommended.More

Today was our second visit to this beautiful restaurant. When we booked we were asked if it was a special celebration, which it was as we were celebrating a birthday. We were given a table in a great spot by the windows to take in...the beautiful views. The food and service were both top class and our guests both commented they will be taking friends up there when they next get together in the Sunshine Coast. Thank you for a lovely day :)More

Twice we've been here for dinner and twice we have had the best steak of our lives. Ricki and the team have given us the best service and wine, dessert and schnapps recommendations and we can't rate them high enough. Even down to making sure...we made it home safe after overestimating an uber home to caloundra 😂 10 stars 10 points 5/5 Highly recommendMore

The food left a lot to be desired. The steak comes out on a sizzling plate with the vegetables, the key being you continue to cook them. There was no taste whatsoever, bland, no jus and just a waste of money.

We enjoyed the views, the waiters were attentive, in particular Raj was very accommodating and was happy to move us to a table with better views when we asked. The main meals were excellently prepared and of sufficient quantity. The desserts however were overpriced and...of poor quality eg the Black Forest desert had shop bought jam roll sliced in the bottom of the dish. If we stay in the Terrace Cottages again we will probably go back, but only for the main meals.More
