We came for a birthday dinner with friends and were aware of the menu but faced with the menu at the table deciding from a carefully framed range of choices was a little more difficult. All meals were presented with visual flair but the quality of the food has left a lasting memory. Absolutley worth the trip even though a... More

Was one of a birthday party on the weekend at this delightful restaurant. The food was truly excellent. Loved the fact that vegetarians were catered for so well. Every one of us seemed to have something different and each person thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Service was prompt, efficient, polite and unassuming. The gift shop was a delight to browse in...

Cafe 4342 is a unique spot in Forest Hill where you can browse lots of giftware and art by local artisans, get framing done, post mail, and eat inside or alfresco! It really is a great cafe with a huge range of food that is all freshly made and uses local ingredients. They have a wide range of gluten free... More

I visited there for Sunday lunch recently. My Lunch was good, though I thought a bit expensive for what was basically a sandwich. Chips on the side would have completed this meal and made the price seem more palatable. Deserts looked fantastic and mine was lovely. However, perhaps investing in a few more Menu boards would make life easier for... More

Forest Hill is a good stop on a visit to Laidley and surrounds and if you can be there at lunch time Cafe 4342 in Victoria Street is a great al fresco restaurant. Menu encompasses smaller snack type dishes to full on mains. We found the daily specials to be both fresh and very flavoursome. It has a cellar licence... More
