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.

Exceptionally good cafe food for a country village. Ate one of the daily specials - Pho with dumplings of pork & chilli in perfect broth. Take away (bought for dinner) was great- salad & arancini balls and fresh sweet local strawberries and honey.

Stopped here for a really enjoyable lunch. The menu was relatively limited but I still had trouble in trying to decide what I wanted as everything looked so tempting. In the end, we ordered the burger and the beef tacos. The locally sourced meat was...delicious and the chips were good too (skins on and seasoned with lots of salt and pepper). Would have loved a little bit of salad/garnish on the plates. Overall, a friendly environment and staff, and honest, good quality food. Would definitely go back.More

Popped into here for Lunch. Staff very very friendly. Ordered the sourdough panini. Very delicious and fresh, good sized portion. They don't sell coco cola, however, sell an organic brand - very delicious. Will certainly return

We stopped over at Timboon for lunch on the way to Port Campbell. From the get go the wait staff was so bubbly and helpful with the menu and even recommended local attractions. The icing on the cake were the many options for lunch. We...were surprised to see chicken curry with rice and beef pho on the specials board! The pies were great as well. I’m glad we stopped over!More

Fat Cow has to be one of the cosiest and most inviting cafes around! AMAZING staff, even better food and it's fairly priced for the quality of ingredients and the effort put into it. Will be going back as much as I can over summer....Cannot recommend it enough.More

The Fat Cow is the best! Great coffee, friendly staff, and seriously tasty food! Fat Friday was a great experience and I am sure that the Timboon locals were very grateful for delicious tapas options. Keep up the great work guys :)

Very disappointed in this cafe. It has one set of pricing on the food in the display cabinet but then a second higher pricing charge sheet at the register. Tourists from overseas would likely be unaware that they are being overcharged. Staff were not impressed...when we questioned the reason for being over charged. They did refund the amount that was overcharged. We had to wait ages for our food. It was not great. I will never return to this cafe.More

Would highly recommend this cafe, we stopped in for lunch as we were visiting Timboon for the day. The selection of food on offer was vast and all homemade. We both had homemade pies complete with a salad and chips, although we both shared the...one salad and chips. The food was delicious and the pies were exceptional, Mine was a Beef, red wine & Mushroom and my husband’s was Chicken Mornay. The waitress who served us was very friendly and helpful.More

Recommended by locals and certainly lived up to their reputation. Fat Pho was superb, home made dumplings, fresh ginger and just a superb dish. Great menu offered with a good selection of healthy options. I would certainly eat here again.

I'm not sure. I know it isn't open much if at all on the weekends as they do a lot of private catering. They are mainly a week day breakfast and lunch venue. It was quite a while ago that we went there and I know the... More
