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.

From the moment we walked in to check in, we were greeted with a warm smile and friendly attention. Aman served us at both lunch and dinner, and the smile never wavered! She will also be on at breakfast and I have no doubt she...will be equally as welcoming then. The design and layout of the bar has clearly been thought about and the combination of that plus the well laid out menu and lovely staff proved a winning combination. The food was lovely, the room very comfortable. Good choice of beers on tap (Aman rhymed them off effortlessly) and the Sauvignon Blanc was very good (I’ve yet to find out the origin tho) (Good deal via 5PM, nice room with cocktail on arrival) I’ll be keeping a close eye on future offrtsMore

Really nice spot with fun cocktails, great staff and good food. We went on a Sunday evening for dinner. The place wasn't super busy and the staff was very attentive. We had a chicken sandwich, a Cobb salad and steak frites. Good portions and tasty....Don't have anything other than positive things to say.More

After a week of traveling around the EU for work, checking into Rabble was dreamy. As soon as I walked in i felt welcome, the bar and restaurant looked incredible and the staff were great. The room was amazing, clean and comfy. Exactly what I...needed. Asked the staff if they were ok with me working on my laptop in the restaurant, of course they were! Ordered a steak and a few beers. Food was perfect and the service followed suit. I dont write reviews...but Rabble deserved one.More
