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.

Always good food in a great location. We ordered the soup of the day which was delicious. The restaurant is licenced too. Excellent staff friendly and efficient even when there was a crowd to diners

Had a great ragu and a large coffee the size of a swimming pool :). We loved this alternative to the generic food courts at the Base and mid-station.

Great little coffee bar, located at the foot of Chairlift 8. You can stop by for a coffee, a wine with a bowl of soup or a delicious burger, friendly staff and great atmosphere. Feels like one of Melbourne's laneway bars!

It's in the last place you'd ever expect - opposite the Village Idiot (I mean Village 8), under the Perisher Manor Hotel. Amazing coffee, beer on tap, excellent range of spirits, home cooked specials made by an Indonesian chef - and run by a passionate...and hardworking husband and wife team, supported by the loveliest people on the Hill. It will be your home away from home, just like mine! Tell Dearne, Tim, Monique and the team that Gav sent you!!!More

We took a long weekend to Perisher with the family and discovered this little gem. The food was excellent. I loved the specials. They were so different to anything else you could get on the mountain & delicious too! Loved how they had little touchs...like having high chairs available etc which made our visit way easier when dining with our toddler. Highly recommend a visit this place when in Perisher for the snow season :)More

Located under the manor right by the main chair lifts. This is a hidden gem! Serving five star food at a reasonable price with friendly staff and great service we would highly recommend stopping by for a feed whilst hitting the slopes. Very family friendly...too which was awesome for us as we had two little ones with us. We also loved the happy hour with very tasty espresso martinis!More
