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.

One of Hyatt’s place restaurants in Stonetown where I watched the final day of EPL. The red snapper with chips downed with the local Kilomanjaro was a great treat with football viewing. Service is excellent and would recommend it.

Great service, great food, great cocktails!! Quite exquisite in every respect, very worth the expense. Friendly and knowledgeable staff (Mayunga and Pendo), wonderful meal (butter lettuce salad, seared tuna rocoto, grilled pili pili octopus), fantastic desert (Nutella cheesecake).

We came to the restaurant for sundown and dinner. The hostess greeted us well and welcomed us and we informed her that we'd like to sit outside for the sunset. She led us outside and asked us to pick a table. We picked a table...and walked over. We had already seated ourselves when she said that we had seated ourselves at 4 person table and we had to move to a 2 person table. This was a bit strange as she had left us for about two minutes after we had already seated ourselves and came back to us to say that we had to move. A waiter had already walked over to us with menus and we asked the hostess as to what the issue was for moving. She stated it was management policy but the waiter stepped in and told us it's okay please stay right here. We had a bit of a back and forth and the waiter dismissed the hostess and handed us menus to order food and drinks. However, the food was amazing, the views were great and the drinks were refreshing. Our waiter was very attentive and our time at the restaurant was smooth sailing from then on.More
