While the atmosphere is a bit lacking with no music, I believe Gipps has the best food in Toowoomba. I've never been disappointed. I've been for business lunches, parties, and dinner for two. Their food and wine is always spot on!!!

Gip's restaurant, in historic Clifford House, enjoys a rare setting - surrounded by well cared for gardens and away from passing traffic - and murmurs "relax, unwind". The lunch menu is elegantly simple; the food looks great on the plate, looks being surpassed by the taste on the fork. My choice of main was a sirloin steak which was served... More

We chose this restaurant because of its favourable reviews and yes it was nice, but I wouldn't say it was outstanding. It is more of a casual dining restaurant than a fine dinning establishment, as it lacks the atmosphere and décor you usually find in most top class restaurants. The staff were generally nice and helpful, but other than letting... More

We visit Toowoomba regularly, often visiting the fabulous rose gardens at Brindabella. We love eating out at Gip's. The staff are friendly and the food is great. It has a french fine food feel. We visit Melbourne and Adelaide also and the quality of the food at Gip's is right up there!

Thank you for your great comments. Our Head Chef Craig is amazing and has been with us now for a number of years. He is part of 'the family'. Lovely to be compared to Melbourne and Adelaide as it is difficult to keep good staff in Toowoomba - mostly they want to move onto bigger and better things but the... More

We recently celebrated a special wedding anniversary and chose Gip's Restaurant. As this was our first visit we weren't sure what to expect. We certainly were not disappointed with what we experienced. Service was excellent and we didn't wait very long between courses. Although meals are pricey, serving sizes are not small. Tasty menu options on offer which made choosing... More

I love how you can have the entrees in main sizes as normally the entrees sound more exciting. I had the zucchini flower special entree which was splendid and wanted more of it. My partner had the pork and scallop for entree and said it was beautiful. His lamb for main was cooked spot on and was delicious. The kids... More

We had a lovely weekend lunch at Gip's, but due to the fact that they were preparing for a wedding later in the day, we ate inside. Food and service were great as usual, but the atmosphere was somewhat lacking. Grey, grey and grey! Laminate tables and plastic chairs (two of which were not even matching). Grey carpet, grey furniture,... More

We came here for our wedding anniversary and the food was delicious. The service was excellent and we had a great time. The only downside would be that if there is a wedding it would be better to try and seperate the wedding guests to the good guests. We felt like we were crashing the wedding. Other than that it...

I've been to Gip's as part of a couple and as a group on a few occasions. Each time the service, food and atmosphere were impeccable and I left with a contented stomach. Cannot wait to visit there again.

Thank you for your review. It did make me smile though as we have to date never turned anyone away from the restaurant because of the way they were dressed. Only a couple of weeks back we looked after a delightful lady in a bikini top and a pair of jeans. We feel it adds to the vibe of the... More
