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.

Delicious gluten free scones, safely the best I’ve eaten in a cafe. You couldn’t tell they were GF. The staff were very friendly and dogs were welcome. Very cosy little place.

We have been on holiday for nearly 2 weeks and this is our 4th visit. The location on the sea front is just lovely. It is cosy inside, with a rustic charm. They sell gluten free cakes which is great, as 2 of my 3...children cannot have gluten. Dogs are welcome and the lender has a friendly little Shi Tzu. The only negative is that there is no toilet. There are plenty of places nearby for these facilities. If you want a delicious tea, coffee or hot chocolate, with homemade cakes and a lovely atmosphere, then I strongly recommend Toni’s. They also do lovely light bites such as tomatoes and wraps.More

We live on the Island and can honestly say that we had the best cup of coffee (flat white) and the most yummy cake ever at Toni's Tea Room in Ventnor today. Try it - you won't be disappointed.

We revisit Toni’s every year on our annual trip to the I-O-W for truly great coffee and snacks. The staff have always been excellent too. Again this July we called in, had the usual superb coffees and then called in again 2 days later for...the same. We then recommended Toni’s to friends who were visiting the Island who then called in for coffee and snacks and they thanked us very much for the recommendation. …..Things then went wrong. We visited on 20th July before lunchtime, went to sit outside on a table for 4 in the sunshine and was asked by a member of staff if we would move further back (slightly out of the sun) as it would make her job easier for her to get about if anybody else came along - we kindly said we would like to sit in the sunshine if that would be ok. She replied it would be ok but it would be better if we went on the table she had mentioned. At this point we said ok, if that’s your attitude we will move on. We then went to the Met next door. We had excellent coffee and the staff were very helpful and friendly - and on the next visit too. I have given 3 stars because the coffee alone is perfection but I’m afraid we won’t be visiting again next year if this member of staff is still working there. I think you may have had an oversite when employing this woman. Sorry for the negative review especially as all week I’d been saying I’m going to give Toni’s a great write up when I get back home!More
