Rita Ora’s illegal 30th birthday restaurant hammered with one star reviews on Google after hosting party for popstar

THE fancy restaurant where Rita Ora held an illegal lockdown 30th birthday party has been hammered with one-star reviews.

In fact, the avalanche of anger has even caused bosses at travel bible TripAdvisor to pull the plug on new reviews of the place.

Rita sparked outrage after she had bash with 'around seven guests' on Saturday night.

Since then, the Casa Cruz eatery in Notting Hill, west London has been targeted with bad reviews on TripAdvisor and Google.

One review read: "Avoid at all cost. They break the law and couldn't care less about public health. They opened during a national lockdown. 59,051 dead and they decide they are different."

Another person – called Emah – said she'd awarded the restaurant one star because it hosted an illegal 'birthday party for Rita above it all Ora'.

She added: "Wow, as you enter the venue for 30 people you can just feel your concerns for others and the NHS just wash away, it's amazing how money can protect you from the rule of law and coronavirus!

"We had supermodels, DJs and everyone who is generally better than you, the peasant public.

"We hugged, drank and danced the night away…even when the police turned up they didn't shut us down because they realised we are better than you.

"These rules don't apply. She can afford the fine. it is OK. Send thanks when she kills your grandma this Christmas. As for the owners who allowed this make sure you have equal thanks."

Another reviewer said: "Unlawful establishment with no interest in the health and safety of Londoners. Shameless, greedy owners. The decent thing for them to do now is simply shut it down."

But the outpouring prompted moderators at TripAdvisor to call time on further reviews.

They stated: "A message from TripAdvisor: Due to a recent event that has attracted media attention and has caused an influx of review submissions that do not describe a first-hand experience, we have temporarily suspended publishing new reviews for this listing.

"If you’ve had a firsthand experience at this property, please check back soon – we’re looking forward to receiving your review!"

However, Google is yet to take similar action.

Hot Right Now singer Rita apologised this week and offered to pay the £10,000 fine for breaking strict lockdown guidelines.

The chart-topper partied with guests including model sisters Cara and Poppy Delevingne and TOWIE pal Vas Morgan.

In her apology statement, she said: "I attended a small gathering with some friends to celebrate my 30th birthday.

"It was a spur of the moment decision made with the misguided view that we were coming out of lockdown and this would be okay

"I'm deeply sorry for breaking the rules and in turn understand that this puts people at risk.

"This was a serious and inexcusable error or judgement. Given the restrictions, I realise how irresponsible these actions were and I take full responsibility.

"I feel particularly embarrassed knowing firsthand how hard people have worked to combat this terrible illness and being fully aware of the sacrifices that people and businesses have made to keep us all safe.

"Even though this won't make it right, I want to sincerely apologise."

A Government spokesman has said everyone, including celebs, must abide by the lockdown rules, adding: "Everyone must continue to follow the rules, or we risk losing control of this virus again.”

Meanwhile, Casa Cruz's owner Nicholas Fallows has reportedly said he knew nothing about the illegal shindig.

It's believed Rita has been forced to pull out of her upcoming appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show following the backlash.
