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.

The cafe was short staffed but they still produced great meals with a great attitude. Had such a fun time there - pretty sure they won’t forget our travelling group in a hurry

This is a wee cafe and backpackers in the middle of nowhere where in the Buller gorge, with views out to the gorge pretty stunning! I’ve seen it a few times and never stopped but did today. A busy little spot, great for cyclists and...travellers alike, a nice small snack menu but also a bigger menu to choose from and selection of cabinet food. Stop here for a bite or a stop. Friendly, welcoming staff & quick serviceMore

Dean went out of his way to make us feel most welcome at his quirky basic little place. We were a group of tired hungry cyclists & it was a great place for us to stop for the night & refuel. Very cheap, Dean, put...your prices up😁More

Really enjoyed our coffee and chatting with the manager. Best was my cuddles with Mr Puss. It's funny how a cat targets you and just wants your lap. A good roadside stop.

We were on a shuttle off the Heaphy Track - and the driver had a compulsory stop here - it was such a treat - delicious coffee and carrot cake, and our daughter craved a banana (we'd been without fruit and veg for 5 days...which seemed like ages :) - super friendly vibe and excellent customer service - this is definitely a must-do and so grateful we stopped - recommend to all - stunning view to the river - a perfect spot to stopMore

This isn't the right email for Berlins - this is Trip Advisor. I have been told that their hours are a bit erratic as it has frequent staffing problems. We were there for brunch on a Saturday & had a really good meal.
