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.

Amazing riverside restaurant, with very friendly staff who welcomed us with an open heart. Even though it was very busy, the staff managed to get our drinks and food on time. It was my first visit and two of the staff members recommended us their...specials like Roasted Salmon and Homemade lemonades which indeed was very refreshing. Salmon was also well cooked. Overall my experience with them was very special.More

I visited this beautiful riverside restaurant last weekend and had a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic, with every dish cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable; the staff were attentive and ensured we had everything we needed. However, with the scorching heat, it was...evident the staff were overworked and could benefit from additional support. Despite this, their dedication made for an enjoyable dining experience. We will definitely come back.More

We recently dined at comptoir lebanese. The food was delicious. Highlights included the mezza platter, grills and refreshing home made lemonades. The service was outstanding-attentive and friendly.While the prices were a bit high,it’s understandable given the current economic climate and the quality more then justified...the cost.More

A regular place we visit upon a trip to Kingston. Unfortunately on this occasion it was the worst it’s ever been. Seated inside and no ambience due to no music so all we could hear were the staff arguing with each other. The food took...nearly an hour to be served and we had to ask where it was. The salad I had was meant to be served with chicken and there was only 4 small pieces in it. After waiting so long for our mains we opted out of dessert. Additionally the lovely fresh lemonade that we always have on our visits was lacklustre and obviously flavoured cordials. Gone was the freshness we used to enjoy. Sad to see the quality has gone downhill :(More

So much going for this restaurant - amazing riverside setting with great outdoor space, the decor inside was amazing (especially loved the toilets which were on the ground floor and very jazzy! Food was wonderful too - it was just the service. I don't know...if staff were new but they were very insipid, there seemed to be plenty of them but they weren't seemingly keeping an eye on a set area and serving quickly. It got to the point we had to wave to staff about four times before our order was taken, and to get the bill we had to get up and go inside to get it after asking three times prior to that. It's such a shame as the food we ate was really tasty and it was good value for money.More

Went for lunch. Decor lovely, food was very nice but sadly it was let down by poor service. Took ages for the food to come out, which was ok as we weren't in a rush. Shared meze to start which was really good, they offered...us some more bread as there were 5 of us but this took ages to come out so we were sitting around waiting for that so we could finish our starters. 4 of the 5 main meals arrived but the tagine took ages to come out, some of us had nearly finished by th time it arrived and there wasn't a lot of lamb in it. The waiter stood over us when we got the bill ready with his card machine, which I didn't like as I like to look through the receipt. The bill also had 12.5% service charge but I thought the service was very poor.More

Tagine was relatively tasty but really small portion. Dessert was ok but not very interesting selection on the menu. Staff weren’t very attentive despite hardly any customers at the time. Décor is more attractive than the menu and the service

I took family here for lunch having been many times and having told them how great it was. It was so embarrassing. My order was totally forgotten and I twice went to ask what was happening with it and excuses were made but no meal...materialised. My family had finished their food and mine still hadn’t arrived so we gave up. They took 25% off the bill but I still left hungry and I’m still shocked at the excuses and no accountability.
