The first time we've travelled through to toowoomba and we are surprised. Wanted to do something special and this place should have been it. Views are spectacular but everything else could have been much better. It's not cheap but would be worth it with if it just made more effort with better food and service.

I have lived in Toowoomba for over 20 years and the best and closest restaurants are in Brisbane. Enough said, the best food I've eaten in Toowoomba has either been cooked by myself or my wife.

Best view. You can see all the way nearly to Ipswich on a clear day. Views of all over Toowoomba, out west & the valley below. Take the time to see it. Nice parks for kids with play equipment, great for picnics, lots of shade & there is a restaurant there too.

This restaurant has the great advantage of food with a view we found the meal to be of high quality at reasonable price. Plenty of parking and gardens is another highlight of this restaurant making the stay there for a meal a delight shall go back again.

was there for a late lunch and we sat outside for the view. the weather was great and we generally enjoyed our meal. * vegetarian pizza (with sweet potato, caramalised onion etc): the combination of veges was right, wasn't too filling & particularly a good meat-free alternative * toasted turkey wrap: simple, but it was done properly & the person...

We were too late for brunch so had coffee and cake. The roses in the garden were beautiful and the views were spectacular.

We decided to “do” the official 'Tourist Drive' when in Toowoomba recently. We were directed to Picnic Point. What a magnificent panorama stretched out before us: well worth a visit; the garden area is pleasant and easily accessible. As we continued our tour, opposite Picnic Point, we couldn’t help but notice the quirky and unique structures at the Heller Street... More

Expensive. Wobbly tables, had to ask for water but when it was brought out, no glasses. Dips without any way of getting it on the bread. Didn't start cooking our mains until we were finished our entree so long wait. Tables not cleaned well. Overcooked dry fish and chips. Lovely view but please, some attention to detail would be nice.

My partner and I shared an afternoon here with good wine, nibbles and a great view. Very peaceful and relaxing day.

We had the most amazing steak in our traveling years around Qld on Wednesday. Cooked to perfection and fantastic service. Coming back. Stewart
