Toogoom, QLD, Australia – The Salty Squid Cafe & Takeaway today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence. Now in its sixth year, the achievement celebrates hospitality businesses that have earned great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. Certificate of Excellence recipients include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a quality customer experience.

This is the second year in a row that we have received the TripAdvisor® certificate of excellence. It’s a demonstration of our commitment to our customers, staff, great food and service. Given that the award is driven by customer reviews, we couldn’t be happier with the recognition – Ian Lind, The Salty Squid Cafe & Takeaway.

“With the Certificate of Excellence, TripAdvisor honours hospitality businesses that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travelers”, said Heather Leisman, Vice President of Industry Marketing, TripAdvisor. “This recognition helps travelers identify and book properties that regularly deliver great service. TripAdvisor is proud to play this integral role in helping travelers feel more confident in their booking decisions.”

BYO at The Salty Squid

We believe at the Salty Squid you shouldn’t be constrained by the drinks selection of the restaurant which is why specifically operate a BYO policy. You get to bring exactly what you want to drink and you don’t get stung with extortionate prices!

Our New Website

Welcome to our new website. We struggled for almost a year with a website from a major corporate provider which never really worked for us. Updates never appeared and it never accurately reflected the quality of our brand, service and food. Luckily we bumped into a web applications developer from Electriclatte Pty Ltd who lives in the local area. In a very short period of time we went from zero to hero with our website.

Although Electriclatte develop applications and systems integration projects in ASP.NET for large companies, they also implement websites for smaller companies and local businesses at amazing rates. Despite the fact they are running and developing, for, a major project in Dubai (Palazzo Versace Community Portals) they still found time to implement a great website for us.

They have developers based in Europe, Melbourne and here, here in Toogoom. If you are a local business and want a developer with integrity and real qualifications then go to Electriclatte Web Solutions . We cannot recommend them highly enough.
