We got a cheese plate for two and a couple of glasses of wine and sat outdoors to enjoy the view. What a decadent way to spend a Friday afternoon. Just delightful!

Lovely spot for a restaurant, beautiful views. Food was good and service was good. Only thing I would say bad about the place is that you have to go to the counter to order your meals and drinks.

Went here first when we arrived at Toowoomba. The spot is perfect beautiful views. Just wanted a light snack so ordered a sandwich. To be honest it wasn't great and very overpriced. Maybe the other food is better.
