“Nice cafe food”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

Nice seating outside in the typically pleasant Rockhampton weather. A great place to go with friends. I have never had a bad meal from here.

“Terrible terrible terrible!”
Reviewed 20 February 2013 via mobile

When writing this review I wracked my brain to think of something positive to say... Couldn't do it.

We went for coffee and cake and were bitterly disappointed, especially as Demedios USED to be a lovely cafe.

The four of us had 4 different cakes and each was flawed - cake was dry and stale, cheesecake was flavourless, torte was mushy and had a shop-bought stale flavour. If you wanted icecream with cake, a tiny scoop was an extra dollar.

I had a hot chocolate and it was neither hot nor chocolatey. The milk was lukewarm and tasted more like cinnamon than chocolate. The marshmallows were rock hard - we actually bounced one off the table! The other didn't melt in the drink and was stale.

Other's thickshakes were disappointing - more a milkshake and with the same lack of chocolate flavour.

Not one of us finished our drink or our cake, even after paying at least $12 for drink and cake each.

The service is APPALLING. Wait staff are incredibly rude - we were ignored while waiting to order, then told to 'hurry up and decide'! Not a smile to be seen, no manners, not a friendly attitude anywhere!

However, if there was a category for 'grunting and sighing' than they'd get a 5.

Don't waste your time here - you'd get better cake, drinks and service at the McCafe down the road!!

“Well priced, great service and awesome food”
Reviewed 31 October 2012 via mobile

It's really nice to find a resturaunt that feeds you for a good price. It's one was close to the cinema so I could park the car, and visit both resturaunt and cinema. Food came on time and well presented. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. I will definitely eat there again next time I'm in Rockhampton.

“A waiter that won't take your order? Now I've seen everything.”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

I wish I could tell you what the food was like at Demedios, but unfortunately - even though I've been there - I never got to experience it.

Here's the scenario - we arrive at the restaurant at our allotted time. We're shown to our table in the pleasant outdoor courtyard and our drink order is taken. Everything is hunky dory at this point.

Then ... we wait. And wait and wait and wait. The waiters and waitresses can be seen inside, they don't seem terribly busy (the restaurant is half empty at this point), but it's as if they're afraid to come out. Finally, after about 20 minutes of waiting, we flag one down.

"Sorry, the kitchen is backed up - we're not taking orders for another five minutes." Um ... OK. You *could* just take our order and put it into the kitchen in five minutes' time. But no matter.

Another 10 minutes passes. Frustrated, I march over to the front desk and ask if we can please place our order. "Sorry, the kitchen is not taking any orders for another 15 minutes. You're not in a rush, are you?" Um, only in the sense that we have a movie to catch in just under an hour. And seeing as you're located right next to the movies, no doubt you're used to dealing with customers in a rush...? Maybe not.

We didn't eat at Demedios. We went across the road to Hog's Breath, which was heaving but atilll managed to deliver out meals within 20 minutes, with a smile. I won't be back to Demediocres.
