Came here for a takeaway brownie so can't comment on the service but it was very tasty, and the location of this cafe is great!

I enjoyed my first experience at the Guylian Cafe. The waitstaff were polite and attentive and catered to my dietary requirements. The meals were a tiny bit pricey, but the lunch deal came with a complimentary beverage which was nice. I would definitely return there again if I found myself in the rocks.

Visited by chance early in the morning...both ordered the hot chocolate (milk). Drinks came servied with a seahorse chocolate in the bottom of the cup with a jug of hot chocolate on the side to pour yourself. Hot chocolate was delicious with the infused sea horse adding to the rich chocolatey flavour, cannot wait to return soon.

Probably one of the worst cafe experiences I have ever had. Overpriced, rude staff, our drinks were actually cleared before we had finished them?! We waited a number of minutes after being pointed to a table for any menus. The waitress who brought them over to us never offered us water or offered much in the way of a smile... More

I ordered a coconut hot chocolate, it was presented with coconut on the bottom of the cup therefore my hot chocolate had stringy dry pieces of coconut floating through it.... That's the least, the chocolate was so sweet, that I asked the waitress if they added sugar, she said no but, believe me, it was like drinking a hot milk... More

Over priced and utter crap. Waited 45 minutes for a $21 cardboard waffle and a $9 hot (it was cold) chocolate. The best part was leaving.

I wanted to try hot chocolate at this place and that was a disaster. It looks like they simply add cocoa powder to hot water. It was very expensive, too sweet and tasteless. I wont recommend going there, go Max Brenner instead.

Following our VIVID Sydney cruise last evening , we got off the boat frozen . What better way to get some warmth back into us , than a trip to the Guylian Cafe in Darling Quarter. We were seated right away and the service all through was very good. A must try here is their signature Hot Chocolate . We... More

On a cold day a hot chocolate does not seem too much of an indulgence, especially if it is available with skim milk. There is a choice of milk or dark chocolate. The drink arrives in a pot and is really enough for 2 people. The hot chocolate comes with a small chocolate and is creamy and delicious. The cakes... More
