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.

I paid £10 for spaghetti pesto which was boiled spaghetti with a little bit of pesto out of a jar. Not fresh, nothing on the side. The coffee is horrible - bitter and thin. This cafe is in a great spot but really needs to...up its game. The Lido Cafe just down the hill has proper coffee and very good food.More

Staying locally for 10 days. My new favourite place for a sausage sandwich. Very friendly staff, decent foot. Coffee could be better but still fine. Very clean and staff are hardworking and making this place what it is. Will support this local business whilst in...London. Well done and keep it up. Great place to visit 👍👍More

The coffee is bitter and thin and completely undrinkable. I threw mine away and went to the Lido café down the hill for a MUCH more flavourful coffee. And the apple cake is amazing at the Lido one too. I had what looked like an...apricot Danish in the parliament hill café but the apricot turned out to be a blob of apricot shaped jam. very generic, the lido café is far superior in almost every way. (there is some shade and more seating at the Parli café)More

I haven't been in for a while but am glad to see this place hasn't changed much in 40 years. I had an aubergine parmigiana which was a large portion with plenty of aubergine, cheese and tomato sauce. It was good value at £8 as...well as being delicious.More

As a pasta lover I have travelled to Italy and Sicily - Rome, Firenze, Syracuse, Venice, Taormina etc and....I love eating pasta here. Their vongole and tomato is wonderful - slightly al dente pasta and a sauce that picks up a great amount of flavor...from the clams, garlic, tomato etc...served hot and good size portion and....delicious!!!! Really I have been eating £18 a plate pasta in some trendy London places and the vongole tomato here is much, much better. I also tried the Fusilli with mozzarella and peppers - which I was hesitant about, not really being used to mozzarella in pasta and this was also delicious. Can't wait to work through the menu and would recommend to anyone. Unpretentious and delicious. Have a feeling that someone in the kitchen has a real flair for cooking. For making food tasty!!!!!More

Hampstead Heath is an amazing location within London! However, the cafe near Parliament hill is such a let down! Very unwelcoming! Look elsewhere if you want a friendly experience

We went to the cafe yesterday as it is so convenient when visiting the playground. The food is fine, although my coffee was undrinkable which, considering it was made with a machine, is quite a feat. The problem with the cafe, and it may be...that it was an exceptional 'off' day, is that some of the people working there give the impression they just don't want to be there. Almost to the point of rudeness. The location is convenient for walkers on the Heath, but 2 minutes away is a choice of friendlier places, so next time we will keep walking.More

We were taken here by some family we were visiting in North London, a short walk from their home. The food was delicious, especially the pasta dishes and a very good selection of deserts too. Very well priced for central London - and live music...on the bandstand. Very friendly, helpful staff. Oh... good coffee too!More

This cafe may look a little unpretentious, but the food is delicious. The people of Hampstead have long known this, and campaigned long and hard to stop the restaurant from being replaced by a bland chain cafe. Now they’ve succeeded, they deserve our support. Simple...Italian pasta and pizza, with some British standards, and good service.More

I seem to remember there was pasta with tomato sauce, which would most likely be vegan. Hope that helps.
