“Awesome food”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

Wasn't overly expecting much but I was so surprised about the quality of the food, atmosphere, pricing and staff.
I had the pork belly and omg it melted in my mouth. After reading the review about the hot chocolate and marshmallows I decided to give it a go thinking maybe they spent more time on good food and less time on good drinks? Nope the drink was lovely. It was hot and my marshmallows melted.
I highly recommend this restaurant. I have been back since then and it is def my new fave hangout.

“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.
