“Good meeting place”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

Well situated to meet up with people, always busy and sometimes difficult to get a table as they have free wi fi and people tend to hog the tables. Food same as other news cafes

“What News?”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

I expected more from this News Cafe as it is based at an International Airport and was disappointed at the long waiting time, incorrect billing, etc.

“Fab Nyt Out”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Its an awesome experience with great food and good cocktails..

At times it becomes irritating when under age drinkers are allowed and there is no control on patrons who are drunk...

“Great Service and Food”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

The service is excellent and they turn the food around relatively quickly, which is exactly what you need after you have been through all the security and customs checks. Filling, good quality meals with a great view over the airport.
