My husband took me to the Old Church Restaurant, Mt Tamborine, for my birthday dinner. WOW! We had a great night. The food was incredible. We have been here once before and both times the food has been outstanding. We had the risotto for entree - it's hard to describe just how good it was - the balance of flavours... More

Was out for dinner with a party of 4. The owner cleverly suggested that we each have two entrees (if we didn't want a big meal) instead of the usual entree/main course. That allowed us the wonderful opportunity to sample 8 great dishes which we all shared. Loved the ambience and hospitality. Had an excellent evening all round!

Delicious food, great wine, super service and nice ambience. Perfect! Great idea to offer every dish in appetizer and in main size, as we like to try many different things.

We didn't have the chance to eat at the restaurant as they were getting ready for a function and do note the most recent reviews re dining however it is certainly well worth a visit whilst in Mount Tamborine to look at the old church and the quaint little cottage gardens at the restaurant. As we didn't actually dine I... More

Most of the photos attached have wrong captions the photos are of the church grounds and entence to church not the restaurant but thanks for the photos however the one of a... More

Firstly well greated by a rather warm waitress all be it, hurried despite an empty restaurant. The cool air coupled with an unlit fire along with dated decor made for a somewhat unpleasant setting. Most importantly the entree of lambs brains was alright but just edible. .. certainly would not be having this as a main. There main of fish... More

My first issue with this review is, if the restaurant was so unpleasant way stay for 3 hours. As for the unlit fire it had been 30 degrees that day and we thought the breeze was a cool relief, however had anyone mentioned they where cold we would have shut the doors turned the aircon to warm and lit the...

Where do I start ? My prawns were basically salt shaped as prawns. Actually, the table next to us had them as well & I overheard them complain how salty they were. Husbands lamb was cool not hot. Really ordinary food. NOT FINE DINING ,!!!! If the waitress smiled, she would have cracked her face. Jennifer, you should look at... More

This place was recommended by David, the owner of Witches Falls Cottages, and we are happy he did. It was so cute and quaint, and the food was great. The fire was lit and it was very enjoyable and romantic.

We had been before and loved it, and this time was no exception. The food was glorious, and the staff and surroundings were sublime. An excellent place for a romantic dinner.
