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.

Came in for dinner a few weeks ago, the meals were amazing, waitressing staff were so kind. A chef was absolutely screaming at the others around him in the kitchen and it was so unpleasent to hear, my family and i didnt like to be...around that it made us feel quite uncomfortable and yelling at the young blonde girl on the register who was trying her absolute best:( Aside from that horrible experience the waitress of the name kiara i believe was so lovely to our table and other tables, and the manager lisa was kind to us. I will be coming back and maybe sit away from the kitchen area.More

Great Lunch Menu. Ideally situated in the heart of the Cranbourne Shopping Precinct. Fantastic ambience, diversified Menu to suit all tastes (e.g, ASIAN, MEDITERRANEAN, AUSSIE) at very affordable prices. Highly recommend that it is worth trying if you are in the area.

A large dining area spread over a number of areas, obviously a favourite with the locals. The menu is extensive and would suite all tastes, extending far beyond the usual pub grub. Staff are friendly and efficient, and willing to assist with any request. The...food when served is as described, generous portions and served hot. We had different dishes across our table and each of us could not fault either the taste, portion or freshness.More

Kelly's Motor Club in Cranbourne is fantastic. We had a 21st here on the 14th of October that went really well. The staff and service were excellent. The place was big enough for all our family and friends but still had a lovey intimate feel...to it. There was a great gelato bar for the kids where they could get gelato and slushies and the adults had a great time with Jell-O shots & the food was delicious.
