Great views, average food.

The location itself is wonderful! But food was ok. Nothing really stands out. Had the steak and eggs for breakfast & a coffee. Coffee was about $5 i think (very pricey), but it comes in a large glass. But worth going if you're after a relaxing atmosphere with great views in Toowoomba.

Recently opened a trip advisor account to share my thoughts. This restaurant is on the pricey side but for the quality of food, you can't beat it!!! Had a lovely meal, sizings are a bit small but its a high end restaurant and is to be expected. Lovely service, had to wave down the waitress for drinks but everyone has... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the views and the ambiance. Overall it is overpriced for the quality and experience you receive. I recommend the restaurant/cafe only for a coffee to take in the views. Eat elsewhere or bring a picnic to the tables scattered throughout the parks. Until this restaurant figures out how to ensure the value they... More

I have attended numerous training seminars at picnic point. The conference rooms were well laid out and presented. The morning teas and lunches that were provided far exceeded our expectations. Also the outdoor area is nice and has amazing views.

We attended a breakfast here the day after a wedding with international visitors. It was a large booking and we all ordered as smaller groups at the counter but when the food came, it wasn't in any sort of order and not entirely what was ordered so the whole delivery of meals to the table was confusing. The meals for... More

Met up with friends at this very beautiful spot. Lovely and warm inside, coffee was hot and came out quickly. Breakfast was equally as good. Certainly a great place to catch up with friends.

My boyfriend and I were in need of coffee after our lovely morning hike up to Tabletop and unfortunately Picnic Point was very disappointing. Milk was way too hot and coffee over extracted making my "coffee" just like over heated milk. Making it worse was the ridiculous price.. Costing us nearly $10 for two coffees. While the view is gorgeous,... More

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
