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.

We stopped by at lunchtime on a Sunday for a quick lunch. The cafe was very busy however the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We had a delicious brunch/ lunch and were very happy with the service and the food. This is a lovely place to visit. The ambience is great too.

The old “can’t be bothered cooking” suggested we head to RSC for kai. It was the famous steak night offerings on menu with a tasty range of starters Right into the steak it was, arrived in a timely manor and cooked to perfection. Served on a roasted beetroot slice. Salt roasted beats, broc pure with walnuts and ju. It was fabulous Family had toffee Browne with toffee and I had the prawn starter for desert Well down Pierre and the team - beautiful food There were vegan offerings too for those people

After several positive experiences eating at Raumati Social Club today was a huge disappointment. Based on this experience I am unlikely to return or recommend it to family or friends. On entry, no staff spoke to us. The woman behind the counter continued drying/polishing glasses, even though she appeared to see us come in. The service was slow and haphazard. I ordered Earl Grey Tea and the waiter said Mint Tea. No, Earl Grey Tea please. When my tea came it was Mint Tea. Bad points for not listening to me properly. After waiting for quite a long time, I asked at the counter whether we ordered our lunch meal over the counter or would someone take the order at our table. It was the latter. Again there was another wait that felt excessive until our order was taken. Our food came and while the chips were nice, the beef burger my friend had, and the fried chicken burger I were incredibly greasy, and were cooked and presented in a sub-standard manner. The fried chicken in my burger had a crusting on it that was seriously overcooked, and burnt in parts. I ate some of it and left the rest. My friend said the beef burger he had was greasy, tasteless and overcooked. Lunch cost $67 for sub-standard service and food. When I paid, the man who did the transaction talked about having had trouble in the kitchen with ovens. I understand this must have been challenging. If it was such a difficult situation, then we, the customers, should have been told before ordering and we could have decided whether to stay and take a risk on the food or leave. At no point were we asked how our meals were. This was all part of the sub-standard service experience. I would not recommend eating at Raumati Social Club after today's experience there.

Visiting town briefly we stumbled across The Raumati Social Club's Tuesday pasta night special - $15 for a beautiful bowl of pasta marinara - husband had the carbonara. It was delicious, plentiful and we were very happy. Casual daytime cafe turned dining at night = we had a seat by the fire and loved it. Highly recommended. Andrew, front of house, was super friendly and helpful.

Welcoming environment. $10 burger night provided excellent and affordable meals for my four young friends. Good options for the one vegetarian in the group. The desserts were beautifully presented and delicious.

We love the casual vibe and quality food served here, and I personally love that there is decent craft beer and good wine. 8 of us ate 8 different meals and all were excellent. See you next trip

Had the salmon bagel. It was awful. What else can I say. Looked awful and rated the same. Haven’t been here for a wee while now but used to love it.

Always good to drop in here - apart from great cafe fare, it’s got a friendly neighbourhood vibe. Didn’t score higher because I felt quite unsettled (in this Covid age!) when seated, by an unmasked and ultra-friendly front of house person, talking loudly to us over our heads/plates of food.

Went for a lunch with my partner today. We are local and always gave this place a wide berth because of a past bad experience (to be fair that was AGES ago). We were both bloody wrapt that we went back. The service was super friendly and helpful and the banter was spot on. But it was Maze in the kitchen that made it. He got creative with what was available and dished up the best Chicken Ceaser I’ve ever had. We’ll be back! Cheers

Some of our friends love this place and won’t hear a word against it. We’ve eaten there twice in the last six months, once for lunch and once for dinner. We won’t be back. Dinner was market fish. Two small pieces of tasteless fish plonked on a salad. Lunch was a similar experiences. A few small pieces of meat on a skewer served with basic salad ingredients. The dinner menu is limited - great if they do things well, but not if they don’t. And on the night we were there they had run out of one of the choices at 7.00pm.

We hadn't been here in a while. It wasn't busy and the staffer was friendly and quick with his services. Asked for hot coffee but it was lukewarm at best. Good coffee, just not hot at all. Ordered breakfasts which didn't take long to arrive but again, not hot. Poached eggs were well overdone, heirloom tomatoes non-existent but had a strange raw onion concoction that was inedible instead, deep fried packet hash brown, and no garlic with garlic mushrooms. Scrambled eggs average. Everything just warm. Really disappointing when paying $24 for a breakfast.

Same old fantastic place. Had a lovely night with my lovely wife ! Steph looked after us with the usual high quality food and fine drinks. Band was fantastic - unbeatable experience from our lovely local. Well done Steph, Minna and the team!

Service? What service? The two of us placed our orders,just one simple thing each. The waitress came back a second time because she had forgotten what we ordered. Two different waitresses looked at us and said they would check where our food was. They didn’t come back to speak to us. The cafe was about half full and there appeared to be three chefs working and three people behind the counter. We walked away after 55 minutes. The waitress who took our order seemed more interested in chatting to two customers she knew. Please, at least train your staff.

Love coming here, amazing food. The vege version of the big brekky has halloumi and spinach and is absolutely divine. Dunno what that other reviewer was complaining about - a “regular” coffee IS a small coffee, surely everyone knows this.

Opted for the big breakfast with the vegetarian option. I asked what made it vegetarian- they just take off the sausage and bacon! They don’t substitute the meat for anything else and I still got charged the same (even after the waitress assured me they charge about $18 rather than the usual $22). The regular hot chocolate was tiny compared to other places so I’d be interested to see what the small was like.
