Nice quiet place

Food was very nice but the price was a little crazy. Would go there again. The view is amazing! Plenty for kids to do. Playgrounds near by are great!

Once again I much enjoyed visiting the restaurant with great service. My meal, which was "Salmon" garnished with Salad/Potatoes was delicious and nicely presented on the plate. Staff was attentive and friendly. The beautiful scenery is always a welcome addition to the nice setting. There are also nice walks through the park before or after a meal. I will certainly... More

After driving 2/12 hours and looking forward to lunch which read so well on their website we were extremely disappointed after having to wait 45 minutes after ordering for our meals to arrive. When they did finally arrive the results were less than impressive. My wifes Mushroom Risotto was a very small serve and wavered between bland and offensive. My... More

We are sorry to hear that you were not happy with your meal on a day when we received so many complements in the restaurant. I have checked and you did not mention it to anyone in the restaurant on the day. Which is a pity as we would have died this for you straight away. I would be happy... More

On 27th April 2015, we stopped at this lookout on the Toowoomba escarpment to enjoy the majestic sweeping view over the Lockyer Valley, Redwood Park and Tabletop Mountain below. Since it was a clear sunny day, we decided to spend a bit more time in this picturesque location. We ordered caffe latte from Picnic Point Cafe and sat at a... 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.

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 tad overpriced we thought. The wait staff was... More

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.
