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.

We arrived at 11.30 for a coffee and told the lunch time menu (JACKET POTATOES) served until 12 noon. We went back between 12.15 and 12.30 to be told the jackets were not ready. We opted for soup and was served with a piece of...bread with no butter. We didn't find the hygiene good either. Gentleman took cash and then served us drinks without washing his hands. We wouldn't use this cafe again. Such a shame.More

This is a lovely spot with a small menu done well and an excellent wine choice. We were lucky with live music on the steps in front of us. We ate the mix platter between us of cheeses and cold meats and local honey. It...was really good and 1 platter plenty for two. We had a bottle of local Ottavianello Ostuni DOC very enjoyable as an easy wine. Will return for the platter of local specialities next visit. Brilliant location and friendly staff.More

Nice spot on the sofa but food was not tasty (seems unfrozen) and the staff was not very welcoming. As the other restaurant around : for tourists

Maybe it was end of season and everyone is a little tired but the welcome was somewhat lacklustre. Seems like high prices ; a beer was €4.50 there yet €2.50 in a nicer friendlier place that was actually on the main piazza.

Salve, credo lei abbia sbagliato a recensire locale, perché nel nostro menu non abbiamo birre che costano 4,50.

Service was lovely, fast and professional. We ordered 8 different kind of cocktails, which all tasted great with different thoughtful garnish. Live music on a Wednesday coughs me by surprise and enhanced the the experience, with a saxophone lounge DJ combination.

This place is genuinely friendly and relaxing. There is a good selection of drinks at very reasonable prices and plenty of seating outside for those warm evenings. I can't comment on the food, but as a recommendation I did go for drinks three days running...(and more than one each time). Good jazz in the background.More

We had cocktails here on our first night and after trying drinks at other places we ended up coming back here again and again. A fraction of the price of other places and the taste and presentation of the cocktails was 10 times as good....Davide served us every time and you could tell how much he cared about his business and the quality of the drinks. Very relaxed and friendly service and passionate about what they do. If you want a relaxing cocktail near the main square that is good value and actually tastes good, this is the place to go. Thank you for your hospitality Davide and the team at Pausa Cafe, 😁 xMore

Yummy antipasto Pugliese. The staff was friendly, the service great. The cocktails were tasty especially the Aperol Spritz with Tabasco - yes, Tabasco -just the right amount of spice. The antipasto was the perfect size for a late light lunch. This place was recommended to...me by a foodie friends in Milan and they were spot on! I’d certainly return again and again.More

The location is amazing right in the city centre Ostuni next to the S.Oronzo statue. The food is ok, the price tick the box the only thing is I wasn’t happy about the man who was preparing the food in the kitchen laboratory he wore...personal clothes shirt and jeans no gloves I wrote this because I’m very strictly on food safety.
