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.

Unfortunately, the great breakfast was undermined by the rude server. There was no tolerance for me not understanding what the breakfast was comprised of—I was supposed to know this without asking. There was no thank you at any stage and I felt I was inconveniencing...her by asking for a meal. In fact, I got the feeling she didn't care less if I ate there or not. When the businesses are clearly struggling to stay open, I would have thought looking after customers would have been a high priority.More

Missed half our lunch order, surly response when I checked to make sure it was coming. After asking twice to actually check, they did and the kitchen acknowledged they'd forgotten the second half. No apology. An hour after getting the first part of our order,...we then got the wrong food. After asking, we were told it was what was on the docket. The order repeated back to us was correct, must have been messed up on way to the kitchen. Food was OK.More

Nice feel to the place. We were the only ones in there ... briefly. There were soon other people in there. They serve tea in a tea pot made with leaves not tea-bags!! Nice muffins.

We ordered at the counter inside and ate just outside the cafe on the sidewalk. The chicken wrap was large and very good, as was the grilled halloumi sandwich. Staff was friendly and service was fine.

The food was great however they had major issues with the Eftpos machine and they weren’t inclined to split the bill between 3 of us. They also forgot my coffee order so I had to ask for it when we went to pay

Our first visit to Utopia Cafe and hope it won't be the last! Very good selection of food, menu and cabinet, at reasonable prices. European chef, and food beautifully cooked. I had eggs and these deliciously fresh and obviously free range. my husband had a...toasted sandwich - wide choice of fillings and bread toasted to perfection. Service prompt and friendly and staff most obliging. Premises spotlessly clean and comfortable seating. Plenty of space for elderly and/or disabled patrons. This is far and away the best cafe in Ohakune. Made our day! It was a real find.More

While in Ohakune came to Utopia twice. First time was just for coffee. Coffee locally roasted. Very good. Next day returned for toasted sandwiches and coffee. Great to have so many choices for our 3 fillings! Also a choice of fries or salad. Very generous...in the fillings. Great service. great food!More

We have had breakfast here twice while travelling through from the Chateau. There is an extensive breakfast menu, and reasonably priced. Bacon and eggs, and pancakes with blueberries and bacon, were as expected. There is a nice ambience to the cafe, and we'll definitely be...back.More
