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.

Local restaurant, clean and comfortable. Not very welcoming but professional. Busy with patrons snd takeaways and looked understaffed. Expensive, I had the salmon which was a d very small piece and loaded salad. My husband had the black bird hamburger which had virtually no meat...but loaded with salad and bread. Drinks selection average for a suburban restaurant.More

Meals have become smaller with not as much food. Very disappointed and contacted them to discuss and the manager was very rude and hung up on me. Used to be amazing value and great food but won’t be going back. The beef brisket for $27...was an entree size! And the chips weren’t even full.More

Excellent food - both the burgers were fantastic! And the chips are to die for. Some of the best squid I have had and the half chicken was so moist and tasty. Great value for the family - and will become a new regular dine...out option!More

Deserves to be a 5 star rating. Can’t fault the food or the service. Looking forward to going back. Must book in advance. If you don’t grab a takeaway, you will not regret it.

Found through the Entertainment book and OMG so yummy & fresh. My hubby said it was the best chicken burger he has had. I had the chagrined squid and a small side salad of greens. The small salad was a very generous serve. Will definitely...go back. NB at these prices we didn't use the voucher as it must be difficult for them with the covid restrictions.More

I’ve only recently found this little gem. Have been here a few times and the food is consistently delicious. The menu looks pretty simple (eg beef brisket with slaw) but the flavours are complex and unusual. If you want to keep it light you can,...but I just can’t go past the salted rosemary fries. The “small” serve is quite generous. They have dessert but I’m always too full to try it! The red wines are consistently good as well. Service is friendly and excellent. You’ll find it set back from Goodwood Rd, tucked away on Rochester Ave (opp Chemist King car park).More

This place has become our local favourite. The food is always fantastic and the service polite and generous. Last night we had beef brisket and chargrilled chicken with a tomato salad and a glass each of pinot grigio. Almost more than we could eat and...all simply delicious.More

This is a small modern cafe/bistro that serves delicious meals. Specialising in charcoal bbq. The prices are small the serves are big and the service is friendly. What mire do you need?. Note that the menu is small. Thats a plus. Our table of did...over order a bit, not realising their generous served. Chips are a must. Small drinks list with craft beers and local wines are well thought out and at refeshingly modest prices. Well done Blackbird !!More

Another one of our local favourites and definitely a hidden gem. The food is always delicious, fresh, and generously portioned. Service is excellent and their prices are ridiculously good (I've almost considered suggesting that they charge a little bit more!). Believe the reviews—Black Bird is...superb.More
