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.

Really good food. Very accommodating and friendly staff, and quick service. I can't believe I've overlooked this place in the past, but it is on the outskirts of the town centre. Will definitely return now I know how good it is.

Attended Cafe Riviera for a much needed breakfast following the works Christmas night out. The staff were extremely friendly, the Cafe was clean and tidy and the girls had the option to create their own breakfasts. Perfect option as they were able to get all...the Sausage they wanted. See you soon Riveria .More

Food good, busy. All going well until payment with Scottish bank notes (for a tip!) was refused. I’ve never been more offended and I’m not a rampant Nationalist

Excellent all round, cleanliness, service, food and price. Well worth a visit if you are ever in Maidstone. I had a fry up breakfast and the other half had a jacket potato. Portion sizes were wonderfully huge. Will return soon.

So I ordered a tuna, mayonnaise and sweetcorn baguette with added lettuce and FRESH onions to takeaway. However what I got was the above but with fried onions!! I did wonder why the baguette was warm whilst begrudgingly paying almost 8 BLOODY POUNDS!!! Had I...of known it was £8 I would of gone to Greggs for a tuna crunch baguette which would come with the correct onions, not be warm and I would of got a drink and bag of crisps for half the price!! VERY OVERPRICED FOR A CAFE!More

Have always enjoyed my occasional trips here for a fried breakfast. Service is very good, food delicious and cheap, and you can mix, match and swap different breks more or less at will. You have to endure Heart Radio, but apart from that a favourite...place :)More

Tuesday(.....eat out to help out day). Clean, deceptively spacious cafe. Ordered a Mega Breakfast with cream-topped banana milkshake for myself, and a DIY breakfast, with coffee, for my friend(......where you choose individual food items to eat). Great idea!. Within only a short while, two large...plates of food were delivered to table. Everything was hot and filled the plate! My friend, who paid the bill, said it had cost less than £11 for two!. Two tasty breakfasts, great value for money, with comfortable surroundings!More

I took the family to Cafe Riviera for the great Full English experience. My wife ordered and so did my son and daughter and for my granddaughter. The staff immediately brought over some colouring pencils and paper for our granddaughter, lovely. All our food, teas,...coffee's were hot and very tasty. A great customer experience for us all, as we were eating more and more customers were arriving, what a popular place this must be, it is now with our family.More
