Great food let down by very poor customer service

We dined here recently as a group of 8 & quite enjoyed our varied meals, including some tasty share plates for starters & several decadent desserts. It's BYO wine, keeping prices reasonable with a pretty extensive & impressive menu.....but service was SHOCKING! Absolutely vacant staff with zero... read more

Called in for a light lunch. 'Wait to be seated' said the sign, so I waited. The guy behind the counter paid me no attention so I politely asked... "I'm by myself, can I please have a table". He was clearly annoyed that I had disturbed him, grumbled something under his breath and pointed to a table. I had barely... More

Overall a disappointing place to go. Truly tasteless food, incompetent and surly service, expensive for what you get. Drinks also expensive. Went there to hold a birthday party for my son, but was told we could not bring our own cake? but sir! we have lovely deserts! Eventually made this happen. BYO yes, but they prefer you buy drinks from... More

Reminiscent of some Canadian eateries I'd visited in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario Opposite Blackburn Railway Station Friendly, professional and accommodating staff Outside seating area Indoors casual but quite elegant for a quiet birthday lunch Relaxed atmosphere Fantastic menu and drinks selection that other eateries could model themselves on Coffee and cakes selection https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/ShowUserReviews-g2019137-d944243-r340529022-Enrik_s_Cafe_and_Restaurant-Blackburn_Whitehorse_Greater_Melbourne_Victoria.html#

Our first time at Enriks and we were very impressed. We were warmly greeted on our arrival and shown to our reserved table.Almost immediately water was brought to the table and we were asked if we would like to order drinks.As we had taken our own wine ice buckets were promptly furnished. The menu is quite extensive and reasonably priced... More

I used to go to Enriks often for brunch.The last few visits I have been very disappointed by the incredibly rude and incompetent service. The waiter (with a beard) is continually in a bad mood and gives the impression you are ruining his day by dining at this cafe. On Thursday's visit he didn't even greet us,just complained about only... More

If you want high quality food across a number of cuisines, try Enriks. One of our favourites. The wait staff are very good. Never disappointed.

Enrik's was recommended by the owner of the B&B we were staying in nearby. Excellent food, easy parking, and friendly staff. We loved Enrik's so much we returned twice during our 3 days in Melbourne.
