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.

This restaurant had good service and you can order on your phone, but don’t order eggs over easy because they will cook it way overdone and it is not runny at all. I enjoyed the bacon but my brother ate it all.

I love how they have come up with creative menus. Moreover, I find their tea and coffee drinks to taste the best, because they have so much variation to choose from. The place has calming vibes as well, making it a perfect spot for brunch...with friends and family!More

Gibraltar and piccolo both were good while not exceptional as is touted. Egg benedict brooklyn style was surprisingly good , surf and turf was acerage. Croissant was fresh and very good my baby loved it but a bit pricey. Overall a better than average experience

I am not usually inclined to write a negative review of any establishment, and I believe there are two sides to a story when I have a poor experience. However, I felt we had been taken advantage of as a consumer by Toby's Estate. I...live around the Robertson Quay area, so I am familiar with the restaurants along and around the river. There are many different cuisines, restaurants, and price ranges to fit any budget. Today, I visited Toby's Estate for lunch and ordered Meatballs Spaghetti. However, what came to the table was most disappointing; it did not resemble the Meatballs Spaghetti. It was presented in a platter bowl with a wide brim and a small shallow bowl in the middle. Nestled on top of the two forks full of spaghetti were four tiny meatballs (each meatball was about the size of a grape). If you meshed four little meatballs together, it would make half a standard-size meatball at best! My bill for the plate of pasta was $20.85 + 10% service + 8% tax, making the total around $26. In the overall scheme of things, it was not a lot of money. But when one orders a main course dish, one expects the portion to fit its description. On top of that, the ingredients were not even up to par; the meatballs, given their size, were not top-cut, and the beef sauce tasted like it only contained sugar and some onion. It was a complete letdown. My advice to the management is that if you don't think you can satisfy your customers within budget, don't offer it. By the way, your service leaves much to be desired. I paid you 10% for scanning my QR code, and we did not receive even basic service. What a rip-off!More

Very disappointed ! We used to often have brunch here and food and service was excellent. Yesterday we went for the first time in a while. No hard copy menu. Must order from a Q code. Hard to follow. Sent an OTP to confirm phone...number...received a possible scam warning. Can not order without paying first. After quite a few minutes I managed to speak to a staff member. Informed if I want to pay cash I must go inside to the counter to order and pay. I am totally against paying for food before I receive it. Part of the bill was 10% service charge... WHAT SERVICE ????? You want me to do it all myself ! We decided to walk out without ordering. That's $55 you missed getting and another cafe that actually gave service got. Will not return.More

Excellent coffee. Tasty food. Ineffectual staff. Coffee was amazing. We had 2 rounds. Food was good. I had the Brooklyn eggs benedict. Husband had the avo on toast. Kids had scrambled eggs on toast. So many of the staff hanging around. The online ordering system...means there’s not much need for staff interaction, but they also needed to be prompted to remove used plates/cups/etc.More

Can not fault Toby’s Estate! Great service, beautiful food (we had Bircher, Breakfast Tacos and the beans on toast), great coffee and all for a very reasonable price compared to other cafes down Robertson/Clarke Quay. Wish we found it sooner.

One of the few exceptional coffee places in Singapore. As a coffee lover, this is a place I keep coming back to. Some of their baristas make some of the best coffee I have tried in Singapore (barista dependent assuming the beans used are the...same origin/blend and from the same batch). Love the vibe and atmosphere of the place. Food wise, pretty decent. So overall, I would say a great place to hangout, work and chat with friends.More

A popular breakfast place, lucky to be able to get a table in a short time. The portion is reasonably generous. Customisable meal choices with various add ons. As mentioned, they are not stingy. The brioche bread was impressive for me. Soft and fluffy! Scrambled...eggs are a treat and mushrooms has a wild nature taste that day. The smike salmon is done perfectly, blended well with the rest of the items, not too salty. Ordered a single bean coffee, fragrant!More

Wide selection of coffee. Cafe is housed in a unit with high ceiling. Lunch/ brunch crowd has cleared by the time we were there at 3pm, much less crowded by mid afternoon on a saturday. Had the Gibraltar Latte.

Came here for breakfast and tried out their Eggs Benedict Rodyk Style as well as Surf & Turf Tower. Food was well-presented and taste good however, I find their items a little bit on the pricier side. On a brighter note, the vibe of this...place somehow reminds me of my vacays in Australia! And I love their coffee!More
