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.

Had a lovely breakfast here. We were shown to a table quickly and the staff were helpful and friendly. Excellent veggie option available for my partner (omelette with mushrooms, spinach and cheese) which he was delighted with. My full english was good quality and well...cooked. The coffee was fantastic (black americano). I would recommend booking as they seemed very busy!More

Cafe by the harbourside in the old part of Plymouth harbour We sat outside on the pavement and watched Plymouth happen around us.  Could have done with an umbrella to keep the sun off, but probably not enough room  Friendly service Shame the espresso was...not very nice.  Something they could easily fix I'm sureMore

Brilliant breakfast! One of the best omelettes I have ever had. Substantial, moist and packed full of my chosen fillings. Very pleasant and efficient service. Would have photographed it but couldn't wait to eat it! Highly recommended

Lovely meal for lunch. Had the crab sandwich and the seafood pancakes. The pancakes were wonderful and were full of loads of fish. Also had a portion of the chips which were also wonderful. Wine by the glass very reasonably priced.

Monty’s allows dogs in the front part of the cafe. When I visited with my two little dogs, they were also treated to a biscuit each!
