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 spot very clean and a breath of fresh air. The meals were good and the staff were excellent. Western style food that is full flavoured. There is a small sheltered bay where visiting Yachts can leave their tender for a walk into Town. Make...sure you check with staff and make a contribution in the form of buying a meal or something. I believe in the near future there will be a bakery here as wellMore

This is easily the best Cafe in the Solomon Islands. The waiting staff are amazing and the food was some of the best I've had in my life. The ocean setting is beautiful. The place is very clean and well maintained. I love eating there.

A fantastic way to start the day with delicious egg breakfast options and barista made espresso coffee options. Plus a beautiful display of fresh pastries. A better alternative than our hotels expensive buffet and unimpressive breakfast options. Air conditioned indoor dining or beautiful outdoor covered...patio with ceiling fans with a beautiful harbor view. Very charming and not part of a hotel.More

A go to place for business visitors and tourists alike in Honiara. Very clean and well planned out design. Staff are friendly. The view is something to be experienced as you await your delicious meal. The coffee is the best.

Bohemian restaurant with a nice breeze on the pier. We had the vegetarian sandwich with roasted local veggies and feta cheese on it. It was delicious, with a nice view on the ocean.

Decided to visit Breakwater for brunch and what an absolute surprise to see this extremely beautiful place set right next to the ocean and airconditioned. It was packed with locals and a few expats. My partner had Tumeric eggs with spinach, I went for a...Breakfast Bagel...hands down the best Ive had so far! Well we ended up having our breakfast and lunch for the next 14days of our short stay. Thank you to the lovely staff for making us feel welcome.More

Definitely the best breakfast and lunch spot in town. They have fresh, healthy, variety of food. There are veggies and deserts. The juices are great. I eat here every day I’m in town.

Outstanding place for bfast and brunch, clean and quality food. Management very helpful in providing local advice and with great staff. Read other reviews before coming to the cafe, all were very positive apart from one - titled Racist cafe. Not sure what the basis...of that review was, sounds like a personal problem with the reviewer. As I did meet the real owners - Fred and his wife whom are Solomon Islanders/locals and found them quite the opposite as you would expect for local Solomon Islanders. Highely recommended place by the sea with a good vibe from the many diffrent groups I seen there.More

They have just a small number (3 or 4) of luxury apartments for long term rental and they are in high demand due to the location and the turnover of tenants is not high. There are no rooms or short term rentals available... More
