Great view but............

What a spectacular setting! A simply breathtaking vista. Well worth going if you have never been there before. We went on Mother's Day for morning tea. Service was prompt considering the day but our hot drinks (coffee and hot chocolate) were lukewarm. The slice of cake we shared was tasty but a... read more

Fabulous view across the Lockyer Valley and a real destination if you have visitors for a look/see but make sure you grab your coffee elsewhere. The restaurant and eating facilities are such a disappointment for the spectacular location. I've tried 3 times over the course of 6 weeks to see if I could at least get a decent coffee -... More

This is my favourite place to eat in Toowoomba. The staff are friendly and happy, and the beautiful food is great value compared to others in the same area. Plus the view is fantastic.

We are visiting Toowoomba and were just treated to the most beautiful lunch by my brother and his wife who live here. The views over the valley just took my breath away. What a picture perfect place to visit. We found the cafe area to be well presented, staffed by a friendly bunch who clearly have a passion for food.... More

Anyone visiting Toowoomba really needs to visit Picnic Point. Light meals for adults and great ice cream selections for the kids. This is our favourite place for coffee and snacks.. love the views and ambience. Everyone should visit Picnic Point.

The best quality food, ample portions, great seasonal menus, superb fast & friendly service at a reasonable price.THE place to be for a Melbourne Cup Function or Christmas Day Lunch. Has been consistently excellent in the past 10 years that I have been going there. It is a perfect venue for the tourist with panoramic views over the Toowoomba Range.

Always worth a visit because of the views but we just have a coffee or tea. The food is very overpriced and only average in taste and appearance. Only one of the servers was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed their work. This restaurant could be much improved.

I have been here many times and have decided I won't be back. The meals are majorly over priced, the milkshakes taste like coloured milk and we had to wait ages. Really not worth it even tho the view is amazing

Fantastic views of the locker valley and table top mountain which you can walk to. Two great play areas for the kids to play. Great to have a family pick nick at.

We were visiting Toowoomba, our family who reside there suggested the restaurant at Picnic Point for a Sunday lunch. This is a beautiful spot but must be visited in good weather to take advantage of the spectacular views from both outside and indoor eating areas. The food was what I would term 'above average to good' pub food. Our barramundi... More
