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.

We had stopped in for lunch a couple of days before and booked for dinner for the night a few days later. The place was packed so lucky we had booked. A young boy was on a stage singing and the place was cheering him...on. Sat at out table and ordered our meals. Then there was a steady parade of people getting up and singing - mainly country or folk songs - and all quite good. Lots of cheering and clapping. The whole night was most entertaining and very noisy. Friendly people everywhere and the service was outstanding with very cheerful and happy wait staff. As an aside I had a ribeye steak which was okay and my wife a vegetarian dish which she pronounced as absolutely fantastic. I can see why people like Riverton - it's friendly, happy, and full of life. Would certainly go back if in the area again and we all highly recommend Jacob's River BakehouseMore

Great food and service. The restaurant has a focus on organic and local. Food was delicious, clearly made with love. A highlight was the shared mezze platter, the poppy seed bread, yum, and the blue cod that came with a super side salad. Worth a...detour if you are in the area.More

What a fabulous night. What a fabulous meal. Every single mouthful was amazing. The entree of hummus and bread was mouthwatering (home made bread). The blue cod, salad and hand cut fries were amazing and the desert, which I don’t normally have, was spectacular. Loved...it. The service and the staff were also amazing. Highly recommended.More

Lovely converted older house which provides organic and great tasting food. We had great coffees (organic beans and made hot), eggs Benedict with home made Holland wise, and blue cod pan fried with a light egg batter, fresh and mixed salad (including a variety of...seeds). Food was delicious, and service great. Definitely recommend!More

Absolutely fabulous place to stop. Very tasty food, perfectly cooked. Lovely vibe inside and the staff are just wonderful. All the food is made in house from scratch and it shows. We are just touring but had to review cause this place deserves it.

We ducked in at about 6pm on a Saturday hoping to grab a quick bite before a long drive. We were told it was takeaways only, but we were welcome to sit out in their lovely garden to eat it. The kids got the kids...nachos and fish taco, while we had a roast vege salad and adults serving of the fish tacos (3). It arrived in good time and was so fresh and crispy and just so good! The kids wanted a real fruit ice cream. They'd already cleaned the machine but had no problems cranking it up again. We'll definitely be back.More

Fully organic cafe which is difficult to come by. We have been here a dozen times and always receive great service. It is a great that there is no microwaving, no wifi, and minimum plastic used. Tastefully decorated, plenty of space and clean toilet out...the back. The food is delicious and prepared from scratch. Of course they back their own bread too!More

Dropped in for a light lunch. So much to choose from. Had amazing soup of the day, full of flavour. Cheese & onion scone. Raspberry slice was perfect, not full of sugar, full of flavour again. Coffee excellent. Owner made us so welcome, friendly &...relaxing place. Will try homemade kombucha next time. So refreshing to have owners running a cafe with passion, it makes all the difference. Keep up the fantastic work.More

Great coffee, with equally great cups to drink out of. Coffee made with fresh milk out of a bottle and a tasty muffin to go with it.
