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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went to this very quirky restaurant in Leigh on Sea on recommendation. It was an amazing atmosphere in a small but buzzing venue. Sally the chef and co owner was amazing. Her food was excellent and cooked to perfection. Her Sister and all the...staff couldn’t do enough for us. Sally told us the moving story of how she came to take on this adventure and all I can say is “Sally Dad will be immensely proud” A mention also for the amazing singer ( Lisa I believe) her singing was the perfect accompaniment to our whole night so thank you. We will all be back very soon and couldn’t recommend this restaurant enough xMore

Fantastic brunch with friends, 3 had breakfast and I had cheeseburger with hand cut chips and homemade coleslaw. Our friends thoroughly enjoyed their breakfast and commented on the quality of the ingredients. Can’t believe we had room for deserts, pavlova to die for, tasty lemon...cake and tiramisu. Friendly service as always.More

Visited recently for a Christmas catch up with friends. Food is superb and the service is always wonderful. We all left the restaurant stuffed. The puddings are out of this world 😋. The whole evening was faultless and I can’t recommend this place enough.

What a fantastic little cafe bistro! People couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful- babies and dog in tow, and nothing too much trouble. Menu was splendid and food really well cooked and presented. Nothing was left on our plates! We were there for breakfast...and between us had a variety of dishes and all equally lovely - thank you Cabanos we will return 🥰More

One of the tastiest meals I have had in a while. Friendly service and cozy atmosphere. We were a group of 12 people and the food was great with efficient staff and a fast turn around and food prep from the kitchen.

Had a wonderful roast dinner with family yesterday. One of our party needs to have gluten free food and the chef catered for him without any problems. There was even a g/f dessert, which is absolutely delicious. The price was really reasonable and we were...all really impressed. Thoroughly enjoyable and we will definitely return soon. Thanks so much.More
