kim on POS Lavu iPad POS System became a Sydney Cafes Nightmare
After being a customer of lavu for almost 3 years, we have had enough. We are a small business selling less that 20 items & no more than 5 employees. lavu pos had problems from day one that caused hours of time on the phone with lavu trying to fix issues to make it run smoothly. We never got to a point where our issues were resolved. One correction would cause another problem.

JWooldridge on POS Lavu iPad POS System became a Sydney Cafes Nightmare
Please do your research before buying ANY POS, but believe that those who have negative reviews have nothing to gain by being truthful about Lavu. Horrible, horrible company with no experience or track record for POS.

Jeff Patterson on POS Lavu iPad POS System became a Sydney Cafes Nightmare
poslavu has released their product way before it’s time. Untested in a real scenario, they are using real customers that are stupid enough to buy it as beta testers, and the sales department is pushing this as the next great thing that ISN’T. 24 hour customer service is a joke, “no operators are available, please email your questions” at 10PM when we are the busiest. David Miles keeps promising...

Living in a Lavu Nightmare!
This system might work for a very small cafe/shop; but, for a fast paced, fast moving food and beverage operation, L A V U is an absolute NIGHTMARE!!
I have over 25 years experience in hotel and restaurants: Hyatt, Ruth' Chris, Mortons, Etc,...
I have finally met my nemesis due to the L A V U contract our restaurant family shares.

Geoff on POS Lavu iPad POS System became a Sydney Cafes Nightmare
Happy to have your comments re POS Lavu. I have very pleased you are having a positive experience. Would you like to put in a "plug" for your restaurant and tell us the restaurant name and location? That way people local to you could visit and see POS Lavu in action otherwise some readers may believe your comments are from POS Lavu themselves.

A little integrity goes a long way on POS Lavu iPad POS System became a Sydney Cafes Nightmare
I did a lot of research into the different types of iPad POS systems out there for my restaurant including reviews such as the one on this site. I must admit i was concerned about POSlavu after going on this site. However, i did also realise that this is an Aloha pro website. So to any other readers out there, take that into account as i have found POSLavu to actually be very good and...

Jami on POS Lavu iPad POS System became a Sydney Cafes Nightmare
We bought this system for many reasons,one for security and ease of use, but let me tell you it has neither. This is by far the worst pos system ever made. We have lost transaction, (which means we have lost money) parts of our menu go missing,prices change on there own ( nice) NOT. The busier you are the more problems we have. The kitchen printers crash all the time, we send orders to the...

New york restaurant on POS Lavu iPad POS System became a Sydney Cafes Nightmare
Buying Poslavu was the biggest mistake we made for our 3 restaurants. This point of sale system is too slow to run a normal restaurant. Probably okay for a small coffee shop.
Waiters hate us for this, as splitting tabs is so slow and tickets to the kitchen get lost or printed twice. They have a support forum, but if you start complaining or too many customers ask about the same issue,...

Greg Villareal on POS Lavu iPad POS System became a Sydney Cafes Nightmare
As a restaurant owner I was drawn to pos lavu because of the price relative to a purpose built pos systems, as well as the great looking interface. Installed poslavu systems at both of our restaurants. System is very slow, glitchy and generally a pain. Poslavu, said we should buy a mac mini server and run their LavuLocal Server system. This helped marginally, but system still locks up. App...
