We had heard that this is a good place to go for "the food is great" "never had a bad meal there". I don't know if it was the day, or us or what ever but the service was less than astounding. It shouldn't take...More

Summer or winter the Deep Blue is my favourite place to chill. With breakfast, lunch and dinner options as well a great choice of cake I don't need much of an excuse to visit, which is normally 3-4 times a week.

We have been coming back to here because the food is excellent . We had starters and pizza , the pizza was the best . So if you are at Moana and want a meal highly recommend the deep blue.

Have had some great breakfast's here and meals. Any time of day is good. Summer is fantastic and in winter they have some fires going to make it cosy. Good food- My favourite winter dish is the " Deep Blue Chicken"

If the owners of this business can read a balance sheet then they should be chasing the hospitality trade Holy Grail of 'adding value' thereby increasing the average spend/profit per cover. Many aspects of this business are good but they fail miserably where it really...More

Your third derogatory TripAdvisor review for Deep Blue Cafe. This latest sarcastic iteration triumphantly and immediately self-detonates by confusing a balance sheet with a profit & loss statement.... Similarly, you confuse cafe with restaurant. In accordance, we take the opportunity to review Ed Finnier as...More

I don't think so. This has always been some iteration of restaurant or take away shop.
