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.

Have been here several times on business, as one of my go to’s for breakfast. Usually order Eggs Bene, but felt like a change so ordered the Pancakes. Was a little surprised that it was either Bacon or Banana & I had to pay an...extra $4 for the banana (At the price it should have both as that combo is a common dish!). The pancakes were great with taste and portions, but I only had 2 small pieces of Bacon and they were over cooked - crunchy. Plus not enough Maple syrup, would barely cover 1 - 1 1/2 of the 3 pancakes. Hopefully this will be read, and they will look to improve. More syrup and more properly cooked bacon.More

In Napier for the weekend and stopped here for lunch. Chosen as the selection for GF was ok. A few people were in the restaurant but I would certainly not say they were busy but told that the lunch would be 30 minutes, which we...did appreciate being told there was a wait. 1 hour later we still hadn't received anything and couples who had come after us had received their orders. Maybe because there was a GF item ordered I don't know but no real apology, just it will be here in a couple of minutes. Customer service just not really there. Having said that when the order did arrive the food was delicious - chips could be arrange a little nicer but perhaps I am being picky!More

Especially the coffee, the fresh milkshakes/smoothies and the seafood chowder are the best....Burgers great too. Nice location right in the city centre, super clean bathrooms.

We were in town for a company weekend with over 100 people. Due to some last minute logistical issues, we had to arrange breakfast for the group for Saturday and Sunday. The crew at Adoro were more than happy to help and even opened up...for us specifically on Sunday (only asked on Saturday). The food was amazing and the staff were fantastic - particularly given the numbers of people that came though. Whilst this is only one review, I can comment on behalf of the 90 or so people that dined over the weekend when I say that we would all come back here again in a heartbeat!More

It’s often difficult to get a table at Adorno as it’s so popular but it’s worth persevering. I had a delicious classic sandwich, filled with fresh delicious ingredients, with a great coffee. Prices are extremely reasonable and the service was solid.
