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.

Very disappointing lunch with friends. Caesar salad came loaded with red onion and cucumber, when I asked the satiated , he said it was the. Hers take on a Caesar salad, nothing on the menu about the ‘extra ingredients.they did replace it for me with...a more traditional one, that had the stalest croutons I have ever seen ( the previous oniony one had perfect croutons) COLA , they have the worst drink options , the cola is absolutely dreadful and they don’t even have cans of real stuff for the fussy traveller. I couldn’t even finish it , it was so bad. The outlook is lovely, the staff were good, but I don’t plan on returning any time soon. I hope your experience is better if you go.More

EXCELLENT CHRISTMAS LUNCH 2023..... Wonderful friendly staff, pleasant ambience, low volume background music, service at buffet well planned, food (including gluten free) plentiful, only minus the brussels sprouts were hard but overlooked as all very filling. Table settings well placed and platter on table plentiful....Desserts yummy and all gluten free thank you. Will look forward to booking for 2024. Thanks to all staff and a Happy New Year to all.More

Everything about this establishment is spot on. It’s location is fabulous with extensive panoramic views over the Sunshine Coast. Our pre booked table in the marquee was impeccably dressed with white linen tablecloth and we were quickly offered drinks from the menu. The choice of...meals was varied and, in opinion quite reasonably priced. So too was the house wine and it’s a pity that more restaurants don’t offer an alternative to their extortionately priced wines. The meals were excellent and plentiful. The service throughout was very good indeed. Altogether a memorable dining experience and we’ll certainly be back in the future.More

We tried a tapas high tea to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary which I had mentioned when making the booking. Unfortunately it was very ordinary. We were seated in an area that was used as a thoroughfare for patrons wanting to admire the view and...use the loos. We also hoped it would be a bit of a special thing (an elegant morning tea) but, we were seated with the breakfast diners and their crying babies. The food was very substandard and the egg rolls were ghastly. The sweets were okay and the fluffy butterfly cake was certainly not fluffy. I know this will come across as being very critical but we just wanted an enjoyable experience and we certainly didn't get that. We won't be going back and since our visit we've been told by some locals that we went to the wrong place for a high tea experience.More

We attended my youngest daughter’s wedding on 27.5.2023. Thank you Flaxton Gardens staff for creating so many wonderful memories for me, family and friends. It was a remarkable day made even more special by your well oiled hospitality machine. The entire event planned to perfection....Your staff so very welcoming.

I was looking forward to eating at the Flaxton Gardens restaurant as I hadn’t eaten there in a while. I had enjoyed many delicious meals there but was sadly disappointed after this last visit. I had the Cod fish & chips and the meal was...a disaster. The Cod was the South African frozen Cod & it was so strong & tough, thin & stringy. The greasy fish was placed on top of my salad making it hot & wilted & made the salad inedible. The only good thing on my wooden board it was served on was the chips. As I’ve said I enjoyed many good lunches at this establishment but it’s definitely gone downhill. I’ve had delicious salmon dishes & soft shell crab dishes there but now it’s just deep fried fish & chips & burgers, it’s become just another cheap pub like diner. I definitely won’t be returning & won’t recommend to anyone.More

I had read a bad review ages ago and decided not to visit Flaxton Gardens. Well thank goodness we finally ignored that false review. The service and food is excellent. For the quality of food the pricing is very reasonable with other local places of...this high standard being twice the price. We had the 2 course lunch of Beef Cheeks and Rasberry Soufflé and Chicken Peri Peri and Lime tart. We have returned again and will visit next week for my birthday..... ?The Christmas menu is available at the moment and delicious. Absolutely try the Soufflé. Plus we can take our beautiful Labradoodle with us....More

I like to assume the best of people so I'm hoping whoever prepared this food didn't think to taste it before sending it out. Negligent indifference is one thing, but I don't want to believe we live in a world where people would do this...intentionally. But the view was nice and there's hedges.More
