Lunch - try the salmon roulard I had this with a glass of chardonnay, just divine combination of flavors. Free wifi and just delightful service ... well done guys.

We went Saturday morning for breakfast and it was excellent. It was the tastiest bacon I had in a long time served by friendly staff.

Agree with ange t 100%. How sad. We have been visiting this cafe for many years and hope they can return to their former glory.

My partner and I had lunch at Riba Kai Café last Wednesday for the first time this year and I have to say both of our meals were absolutely perfect! we are both quite fussy when it comes to food, but we were both extremely satisfied not only with the new menu but the quality of the food. It's not... More

When my partner and I first moved to the coast this cafe became the place we always went to eat lunch together. The staff are lovely and we love the view. However last visit we went the menus had changed, including our favourite dish the burgers. We did however decide to try the new burgers and were anything but pleased... More

Hi Ange, My name is Brett, I am the owner of Riba Kai Cafe and i'd like to thank you for your recent comments and review. After investigating your feedback, my head chef and I found that our new burger patty's had been made far too small by one of our chef's. Unfortunately, these things happen but I can confirm... More

First time doing a review but I feel compelled to do so as my Friday was ruined by this restaurant. We chose this place because it didn't look too busy and the outdoor setting looks pleasant and family friendly. Now I know why it wasn't too busy! We waited 45 minutes for a baked potato and grilled swordfish with salad... More

Hi Andy, My name is Brett. I am the owner of Riba Kai and I am really disappointed to hear my restaurant " apparently" ruined last Friday for you. Funnily enough, reading about your experience was not new to me. That afternoon, the Friday in question, my manager had recounted how a rude and disgruntled customer had ruined her day!!... More

Glad I didn't read other reviews, might have missed this. Wife and I had a simple lunch while shopping. Salt and pepper calamari was very good. High quality, well cooked, great flavour. Spinach and feta quiche tasted good, could have been warmer. Wine was cold, service prompt. Prices good. Will come back.

Having eaten breakfast in many different places this looked the ideal place to eat, however the bacon eggs mushroom and tomato breakfast plus coffee was just OK and nothing more .. a little bit ordinary for what appeared to be on entering a nice cafe offering a little bit different on the way of choice of menu. Am really over... More
