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.

First time we've been to this pleasant little eatery for over a year and it was as good as we remembered. A sensible lunch menu, good coffee and a charming outside area in a quiet suburban area make it one of the more interesting cafes...on the Gold Coast.More

Really good healthy fresh French style cuisine. We visit this little cafe frequently, mostly for lunch. The food is always very good. We love the light fluffy omelettes, the succulent beef burger with crunchy well seasoned chips. The burger is my favourite on the Coast....The Camembert salad is refreshing & delicious. Superb coffee. The portions are generous. The price reflects great value for money. The staff are helpful & attentive and it’s a lovely space to sit. Pets are welcome outside. Parking can be challenging when it’s busy because it’s a popular area but we have always been able to find a park.More

What a lovely cafe tucked into a little corner between two other businesses with indoor and outdoor seating. Street dining with umbrellas and stairs leading to another outdoor dining area plus further seated area indoors with kitchen at the rear. Friendly staff and great menu...all in a very relaxing location Le Jardiniere Cafe is popular with family members who live in the area.More

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting and eating lunch at Le Jardin recently. Smashed avocado on toast was delicious followed by beautiful coffees. Our waitress was most helpful, and took a photo of us thoroughly enjoying ourselves. We will be coming back for sure!!

With the majority of its tables outside and with a smidgin of greenery this eatery just about justifies its name. But a garden or not it's a pleasant spot with a certain je ne sais quoi, We had a savoury crepe and a salmon baguette...for lunch and both were very tasty. While the coffee was a little milky for our tastes we were more than satisfied with our collective offering and would recommend Le Jardin Cafe for something a little different when you're on the Gold Coast.More

Before I start any negativity, let me say the cafe is centrally located & has a lovely leafy atmosphere, but after 3 recent visits I have to leave a negative review about the owner who is, to say the least, extremely rude. On the few...occasions we have been, he is always overly abrupt & very impolite. Being a local I have given him the benefit of the doubt, however I now refuse to give my money to someone who disrespects the very people he is in business to serve. It takes nothing to be kind & considerate.More
