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.

Dispite receiving a reminder text from the restaurant the day before we arrived to find the restaurant permanently closed. Didn't have the decency to advise us of the closure. If they can send out reminder texts they could have advised us of the closure and...avoided a lengthy journey.More

We hired Balchao Restaurant to host our sons birthday party on the 31st December. The staff were attentive in our pre planning, even taking the time to video call us through the setup for the day. On the day, they were fantastic at managing our...guests, serving food and drinks with no delay and most importantly - the food was delicious! Good people skills & hosting ability really makes a difference, and I have to truly say I enjoyed the experience and would not hesitate in booking again. Highly recommend.More

Just a lovely experience. Had an afternoon off from the kids and couldn’t have picked a better place. Food was delicious and we were really looked after. We’ve pretty much decided to book for next Christmas Day.
