Lovely food and great service along with a very relaxing atmosphere. Have been a number of times by myself and with family / friends and always enjoyed it immensely.

Busy morning so just a suggestion, perhaps booking before you go. Relaxing atmosphere of the gardens and the pond. Such a shame though the night before they had been vandalised the furniture and furnishings had been thrown into the pond! Would return again.

My wife and I really like this spot nestled in the Botanic Gardens. Makes a nice change form the industrialised Gladstone landscape that is prevalent at most establishments. Good and cheerful meals also.

Lovely Valentine's Day breakfast with my bride. Cosy surrounding semi covered area not sides but has a roof and lovely setting amongst the Gladstone Botanical Gardens. Plenty of turtles to feed and local bird life to admire. Food was reasonably priced, a small menu, service was prompt and friendly. Tea served in fine china cup with a real loose leaf... More

Great food and location with the added advantage of dining with what seems like hundreds of Turtles. Take your Sun screen and Mozzie spray however food makes up for any small issues there.

Under new management, all food is made from scratch. The chicken and camembert pie was delicious and was served with a side salad. The staff were friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was great!

The cafe at tondoon botanical gardens has, I believe, just reopened. I visited on a weekday and had a meal with friends and family. The deck of the cafe overlooks the duck/turtle pond and is surrounded by lush plantings. The menu is a little short on what i would like to eat and then the actual food was pretty poor... More
