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.

Had breakfast here today and returned for dinner. The scallops with leek and saffron were tasty, my wife’s salmon and vegetables tagliatelle were to her liking, and my steak frites was cooked perfectly. The Béarnaise sauce was delicious and copious. Great for dipping the frites into, as well as the steak. However, it really needed a small green salad with vinaigrette to accompany it, which is common in most French restaurants. The micro herb salad was no salad at all, just a couple of micro herbs scattered. I think this is a necessary improvement, as that was the only disappointment of the meal. I wouldn’t mind paying an extra few dollars to have a small side salad included as part of the meal if that is what it takes (not a full salad which is the $10-$12 side, which would be too much), after all, the duck has beans with the potato so where are the veggies/salad to accompany the frites? The chocolate dessert was tasty and well made, and the accompanying scoop of vanilla ice cream was lovely and creamy. A little lost on the large plate though. Maybe a smaller/different plate will enhance the presentation. Top marks to the front of house team tonight. The wines are very well priced. I enjoyed the champagne and glass of the Beaujolais and my better half enjoyed the Rose. I was also very appreciative of the staff sampling the wine first and presenting a fresh bottle of the Beaujolais after the glass poured from the bottle opened the day prior had lost its edge. Very well done - that kind of attention to detail will get me back and was deserving of a tip. FYI, the Bas Armagnac was a delicious digestif to finish. Great to see a Bistro like this in Byron. Keep it up. A few tweaks and it will be even better!

I'm not kidding, I love it when I'm made to feel like a pain for asking twice for the side of milk I already ordered from a man with half his shirt buttons undone. Our food took ages but it was perfect. Except for my friend who just didn't get her toast. The fifth star was left off because of the poor girl who somehow messed up that order. We asked her about it when our other two meals arrived but she had just gotten in trouble from the kitchen about something else so after looking idly at the ipad she just wandered off. We were nearly finished our meals and our friend's still hadn't arrived, the girl saw us looking so sort of looked back at the kitchen, but I guess she just hoped we'd forget that toast was ever ordered? Then she got in trouble for not clearing our glasses. She was having a bad day. We then asked the sexy arrogant barista about it who actually approached the kitchen to enquire but the toast wasn't coming. He told my friend she should have spoken up sooner. We said we did and then he was apologetic and made her smoothie free so that's something. She's eating a burger and fries now.

Beautiful and tastefully decorated cafe. Good food especially the pancakes. It’s unlike the normal fluffy pancakes. This is a bit bready yet super delicious. They top it with fruit compote. If you are hungry they serve big breakfast , avocado toasts, or light breakfast like a coffee and croissant. Indoor and outdoor seating. Good service.

I'm a middle aged man from Sydney and this is the first review I've felt compelled to write. Notwithstanding the food was quite nice, I've never experienced ruder behaviour in my life in a cafe from the male staff. Two of them expressed an arrogance to our family that I've not experienced previously in a hospitality setting. My wife and I have been to the cafe several times under previous management, and it's obvious the new owners are not suited to this type of business (the female waitress was very nice). I recommend that patrons avoid this cafe and also that the owners (the male staff appeared to be the owners) consider another type of employment which does not involve customer contact.

Hi Russell, Thank you for your honest feedback. We have passed on your comments to the team for further improvement in these areas. I can assure you that dip still has the same owner after more than ten years and as majority of reviews indicate our culture at dip is not reflected in your comments on this occasion. As a return visitor to our venue it is of the utmost importance to us, that we can ascertain what happened to ensure it does not reoccur. One of our managers will be in touch with you soon. Please do let us know via dipcafebyronbay@gmail.com if there is a best time to contact you. We are very disheartened to hear about your experience and we look forward to being in touch with you soon.

My partner and I went here for breakfast the other day, service was slower than usual. The waiters were a bright, happy face though which made up for it! We ordered a juice each alone with our breakfast. We both received our food, my partner got the pancakes and I had the Coque Madame - food was nice! However I could t taste a hint of blue cheese in the bachemal sauce, but it was still yummy none the less! However the biggest let down, we didn’t receive our juices until AFTER we had finished eat our meal! The waitress apologised for the wait, however neither of us had an appetite for a drink after we’d already eaten! We then watched around the restaurant and noticed that all the tables around us had the same problem - not reviving drinks until after they had been at least half way through their meal! Overall, yummy food just a bit disappointed with the service and timing!

Had breakfast at this busy spot. The food tasted so fresh and delicious. I was seated in the sun and the waiter later let me know when a table in the shade was available, even without me asking. Great service makes a huge difference :)

This cafe is just the best. Beautiful French-inspired food, friendly professional service and a great vibe. I spoke with the Manager when we had lunch here the other day and he is clearly passionate about providing a quality experience for his customers. Cannot recommend highly enough :-)

We had a lovely French lunch here and ordered some takeaway frozen pre-prepared meals too. The food was good - we would have preferred more vegies with the mains to create more balance. The place has a good vibe, friendly staff though the service was a little slow. Will go and try brunch there one day too. It's on the more expensive side but definitely worth a visit.

Delicious food and friendly service. We had the buttermilk pancakes with crispy bacon, Russian eggs and a sweet pastry (rhubarb). The pastry was really fresh with crisp pastry, if you’re looking for a croissant or other pastry then this is the place. There is a small range of fresh smoothies, my boyfriend had the Berry smoothie which seemed packed full of fruit, my coffee was also excellent. A decadent breakfast that was worth every bite.

Ordered a bacon and egg roll on a baguette. Spent about 10 minutes draining the yolk and hollandaise sauce, it was the sloppiest bacon and egg roll I’ve ever tried. I ate half of it, the other half fell onto the plate. It was disappointing to watch a $16 meal fall apart like that. Atmosphere was nice but the seating was cramped and tight.

Loved reading the reviews and decided to check out for ourselves. Being from Melbourne, we’re lucky to have brunch options everywhere....this place is an absolute standout and the food (we had the big breakfast) was tasty and so flavoursome. Also had a banana milkshake and having real banana in it was just so refreshing. Staff were super friendly too - Amazing eatery 👌

Was disappointing considering so many good reviews. Service was slow only 1 waitress on a Sunday. The barista seemed to do nothing while the waitress was super busy and just hang out at his coffee machine. Won’t be going back

Stumbled upon Dip on our last visit to Byron and it has become a staple for our family ever since...the eggs benny is the best I’ve ever had, the croque madame is devine and the croissants usually sell out by 9am cause they’re delicious. They also do dinner on Friday and Saturday nights, good old fashioned French cooking full of flavor...if u haven’t been here, make sure you visit when next in Byron!!!

An outstanding breakfast on a very nice day. Found this on TA and decided to give it a try. Had a couple of coffees, made to perfection, the buttermilk pancakes (delicious) and the croissant with ham and cheese. We will be back.
