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.

The fact that I am a sucker for Italian hospitality may seem to turn this into a biased review- but it’s not :). I seriously had the best meal I have had in a very long time! Absolutely sensational - and with that I mean...all senses get engaged. The food looks amazing and pleasures the eyes, the taste of the smooth risotto with all surprisingly flavours so perfectly matching and enhancing each other, the sounds of Italian accents, the smell makes you almost want to inhale the food, and oh my goodness, your heart get touched by the love they must have put in creating this beautiful meal for me. Thank you!More

Had not been to Shanikas for years, I'd heard some bad reviews, but decided on a revisit when meeting some friends for dinner. We had first sitting on a Saturday night 5.15-7.15. Staff were on the ball, very attentive, (maybe a little over attentive due...to making sure we were out by 7pm) l was disappointed some of the menu had changed but they still had my all time favourite spaghetti marinara which l always had there. Still tastes amazing so was very happy. Looking forward to going back soon.More

Went for a 30th birthday, food and service were amazing. The entrees … bruschetta, antipasto, aranchini & calamari were about the best we’ve had anywhere. Main courses … pastas, steak & fish were excellent. Couldn’t fault it .

My husband and I visited Shanikas for lunch to celebrate my birthday. As usual the service and food were exceptional. Unfortunately the afternoon was spoiled by 3 men sitting at the next table. They were very loud and very sexist and very liberal with the...four letter word. I told the girl at reception about the unfortunate incident and hopefully it will not happen again. We are regular patrons of Shanikas and are very upset that these men turned our celebration sour.More

The vibe is great, the decor classy yet comfy. It was a family get together and everyone was happy with their meals. The food was good, high quality and plentiful. The service was excellent from the initial greeting to paying the bill. All the staff...were cheerful and efficient. Not cheap, but recommended for a lovely weekend lunch.More

First time visiting here, I’ve been told by my friends and clients that it’s a must to visit. So as a final goodbye to my parents before they returned home we decided to go. Well… we couldn’t fought a thing! The guy who seated us...was very friendly and happy. We were seated upstairs which actually was nice because it was a little less noisy than downstairs (not a bad thing), our waiter’s were fantastic the guy (not sure his name - sorry) went above and beyond to serve us. And the lady served us delicious drinks - I had a raspberry freeze just delicious, if it wasn’t a school night I could of had more. The food was delicious, each mouthful full of flavour! And then dinner isn’t complete without a pudding, so I had a decadent chocolate warm brownie with ice cream… mouthful of deliciousness! Definitely head into Berwick in your next visit and see the guys, superb service and delicious food, couldn’t fought a thing!! We shall be back!! Thank youMore
