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.

Food is ok, but service is terrible. I finished my entire breakfast before my partners breakfast even arrived, and our coffees came out in between all that.

Lovely cafe on the beach with an extensive menu. Quality food and drinks. Reasonably priced and we'll cooked. The sweet potato fries, fish tacos, barramundi and chips and the BLT we're all excellent.

small helping of overcooked fish - a lot to pay for an inside table on a windy day - choose something else!

Lovely service and outlook. The food was a big improvement on my last visit. I had the prawn and squid salad, which was fresh and tasty. We also ordered the burger which was also good. A few more chips on the side would have been...nice but no real complaints. The green juice was great too. I also loved that the outdoor seating is dog friendly. Will definitely be back to try some other menu items.More

A group of us are regular visitors to this restaurant which sits right on the beachfront at Avoca and met here recently for lunch to farewell two of our dear friends. In total there were twenty four of us and we were served an individually...selected, reasonably priced and excellent, varied lunch with wine as required by a most attentive wait staff and owner. All in all, it could not have been a better send off from all points of view - location, service, value, food and wine. Thanks again Avoca Sands and staff and long may you keep on, keeping on !!More

Arrived on Saturday after 10 am and the place was busy. We ordered two Egg Benedict one with salmon and the other with bacon as well as a full breakfast for three people and accompanying coffees. The service-it didn't take long before we were served...with very generous potions of the breakfast which we all enjoyed. The waitstaff were polite and by the time we finished, the place had emptied out and we could see ocean views from our table. Rating-a positive experience.More

When I saw this cafe from the beach it looked appetizing but when I walked in I was appalled staff were so disrespectful to one of my friends because she couldn’t afford her overpriced meal so decided to get just the chips they treated us...like peasants I am so deflated about the experience that I would never recommend this placeMore

Toasted the day with perfect Pina Coladas followed by the Seafood platter, so huge we struggled to eat it all. Plump prawns, tender salt ‘n pepper squid, delicately seared juicy salmon, crisply battered tasty fish and chips cooked to perfection. Wow!

I went there with my wife for her birthday lunch. The food was tastless and oily.. I should have made notice of the smell of old oil when we walked in. I paid before we were served, I would not have paid if we were...served first. Never again.More

Parking is right outside but it is in high demand. I think there is a disabled spot or two but on the other side. (Less then 50 metres)
