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.

Great service. Staff are very friendly. Busy spot though! Coffee was good and does the trick. Would recommend.

Friendly staff, fine coffee and lots of options to choose from. A bit dirty but we may have followed the lunch rush. This could be a lovely stop with a bit of a birthday and some clean tables.

We go to Westport often, when we do I always get 2 Marshmellow slices to take home (Nelson) with me from Gibbys. It is soooo yummy no one in Nelson do not have it the the same.

$2.00 to charge a cell phone TWO BUCK!! A mark up that event mafia drug dealer would be impresses with. The numbe of electrons drawn from the national grid and charged would be infinitesimal. This is all about squeezing stuck travellors.

Two of us called in for lunch. One had fish and chips,the other all day breakfast. Both meals were served quickly, both top quality. Coffee was the best we had on our holiday.Lots of locals calling in so that is a good sign.

Gibby's is like a truck stop in the middle of town. Very busy but with good staff who seem to work at great speed. While we were there the place just kept pumping out food and drinks and everybody seemed quite happy. I do think...that this may be the most popular cafe in town. RecommendedMore

We were recommended Gibby's by the housemaid at our hotel, and it was easy to see why. Not only were the breakfast portions more than adequate, the service was second to none and everything was done with a smile. The food was so good here,...we went for breakfast 3 days running - along with (so it seemed) the rest of Westport! Highly recommended.More
