Had lunch here on the recommendation of our Motel Manager and were pleased we did so. First impression was of the wonderful view across the valley but our lunch was equally impressive. Two of us had Mushroom Soup which arrived with a side dish of freshly cooked mushrooms and was delicious. We returned a couple of days later for breakfast... More

This is a well situated restaurant with views back to Brisbane. The service is great and the food was well priced and served quickly. The only teensy thing missing was some warmth. It was an extremely cold morning when we went up for brekkie ( around 0 ) and it didn't feel like they had heated the restaurant at all.... More

Just a visit to Picnic Point is wonderful but to be able to sit and have a coffee or a meal with this fantastic view is even better. Food is very good and the service is also prompt and friendly. It's a must see if you are in Toowoomba

fabulous view and perfect for cake and coffee. Ample table options with open fire place for the doona weather. The surrounding parklands and escarpment are lovely and perfect for a walk. Offers views across Toowoomba and Withcott and beyond. Enjoy

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
