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.

If you stay in Aloha Apartments, it is a very short stroll across the road to Golden Orb. A lovely feel and setting about the place, with lots of timber used inside and a lovely shaded garden courtyard outside. I had one of the breakfast...specials on offer, shakshouka, which was cooked to perfection and with the richness of the tomato, the portion size was just right. Mum had her usual poached eggs on toast (sans bacon on this occasion) and commented “Now that’s what I wanted!” The yolks were deliciously runny and all of the white was nice and solid, no uncooked white. Coffee order came out quickly and was delicious. Will definitely be back before we leave.More

What a beautiful cafe found down amongst the sub tropical gardens! The staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was sensational. The chicken and veggie soup with sour dough toast was lovely. Other diners had the steak sandwich, cheese burger and seafood crepe -...they all looked devine and reports were they were very very good. Reasonable prices too. My soup and a cup of peppermint tea was $20. Thanks Golden Orb Cafe!More

We ate at the Golden Orb Cafe a couple of times for breakfast whilst on Norfolk Island. The menu was extensive and the pancakes were our favourite dish. The Cafe is down a side alley in the Main Street of Burnt Pines with a big...sign at the entrance which you can't miss. Very nice setting either inside or out. We found the staff friendly and very efficient, the prices a little higher than other places we ate, only down side was the opening hours. Closed Monday and Tuesday then until. 1.30pm Wednesday to Friday and even earlier on a Sunday. Not sure for the reason as most of the businesses in Burnt Pine close very early there were many tourists in the 8 days we were on the island, maybe a staff shortage! It's certainly worth a visit as there seemed to be many locals popping in whilst we we there.More
