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.

Every time we go to Ocean Grove we get food from Zebra bar and bistro. Last night we had the eye fillet and the fish. The eye fillet was the BEST steak I have ever had. Thank you Karen it was sensational.

Service is terrible, not friendly and we felt like an inconvenience. The food was the only thing that saved the night, although quite pricey.

Love this place for lunch or dinner with friends.The menu is extensive. The food is divine & so reasonably priced. The service is faultless even with a large group which we have experienced. Very highly recommended

Amazing venue and excellent location, however the staff gave the impression that they did not want to be there or serve us. When ordering food or drinks we ended up asking what was available after attempting to order 2 drinks and 3 food dishes that...were not available due to various reasons. When we did find something that was available to order the food was quite nice.More

My score 3.5 stars. J & I had dinner here a while ago while on hols. Service was good, very helpful & the waiter allowed us to alter a few bits of the Seafood platter for 2. We REALLY enjoyed the Battered oysters, Moreton Bay...bugs, King prawns & Greek Salad. The battered Flathead was nice enough but TBH the Crumbed scallops & S&P calamari were average (as were the chips). Too much food & marked down for some items being a tad salty AND overall a bit expensive. However we would return & have the 4 items we really liked if we came down this way again.More

The food at this restaurant is amazing! Great portion sizes, superb flavours and fresh produce. By far the best restaurant in Ocean Grove and the surf coast.

Visited with my partner for a nice dinner, the waitress seems to have no idea what she was doing and was more interested in having a chat. The food was quite average and not as expected. Kilpatric was undercooked a smothered in bbq save which...ruined the taste and feel of the food. Partners meal came out undercooked and smothered in cracked black pepper. Won’t return.More

Seafood was fresh and flavoursome. Different tastes, loved the activated charcoal garlic prawns. On the pricey side but well worth the dollars. Wine complemented the meal beautifully. Staff were very attentive, fresh cutlery and serviettes per course. Nice atmosphere with relaxing background music. Glad we...had a special night out.More

Sunday afternoon seafood feast with cocktails was fantastic. We spent last Sunday afternoon here and we were blown away by the food and the service. 6 courses were served over the sitting and each of them were amazing. There was so much food we could...not finish, and we’re all big eaters. The best oysters kilpatrick, and I don’t normally even like oysters. Everything was cooked to perfection and the side salads were just a party in your mouth. Cocktails, beer and wine a plenty. The value at $100 a head cannot be beaten. Staff were lovely and very attentive. Can’t wait to go back.More
