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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Met up with family in Invercargill and we all went here for dinner. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient and Im sorry I cant remember her name. Food was good and atmosphere was nice too. Plenty of parking as you can also use the...carpark over the road at the school (afterhours of course). Pricing is mid range, but we really enjoyed our night out.More

A plain simple looking Cafe/bar/restaurant from the outside. Great surprise to find a cosy appealing cafe culture inside. The staff had a genuine interest in looking after everyone, fantastic meals from a menu with a wide range of options. Southern hospitality at it’s absolute best

My partner and I came here for lunch on Sunday. Arrived approx 1:30 so post lunch rush. Or so we thought. 1 hour later we’re still waiting for the food we ordered which required minimal cooking. Raw oysters, chips and a rare steak sandwich. No...update on how long the food will be and no warning that the wait could be this long. Extremely disappointing.More

Ate here last time I was in Invercargill and enjoyed the pie but this time it was a hot night so opted for a salad. Loved the chicken salad, it wasn't just lettuce so much stuff in it. Stopped here on a Wednesday night and...it was booked out we had to eat in the bar but that was all good. Good menu with loads of options. Lots off street parking outside.More

Late lunch on a gorgeous sunny Sunday with hubby. I ordered the chicken burger and my husband the chicken pasta. Both enjoyed the food, nice flavors and well presented. Service was a little slow but fortunately we weren't in a hurry... I did think $10...for a Somesby cider was a little steep.More

I've been to this place a few times now and one memorable experience is the oyster soup when the Bluffies are in. They make a great chowder and it's at its best when the Bluff Oysters are in season. Just perfect with a little glass...(perhaps big) of sauvignon blanc to add to the liquid.More
