“A total package - great food / atmosphere / location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Just 15 minutes from Toowoomba on the New England Highway located at the charming village of Highfields is this little gem. A rustic style cottage with the option to dime inside, on the verandah or enjoy the outdoor village green area . Order from an extensive menu from light to gourmet meals and mouthwatering desserts. Browse the inside cafe for fresh local produce and giftware, or try the homemade chocolates.
The food is delicious

“Nice for visitors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The Chocolate Cottage is a great destination if you have visitors - the setting has nice views and the deli shop invites you to browse. Also, the food is very good, but portions are a tad bit too small and quite pricey considering it is a cafe only (even at lunch time). Expect to spend $30 per person. I would still recommend this for a nice lunch with friends and family!

“Slow service, manager rude.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Waited 45 minutes for mains, was offered dessert first. Waited another half hour, dessert never came. Asked for a refund for dessert, manager overheard, instructed girl at register to "give them a refund" that's it. No apology from him, no acknowledgement.

Burger was nice. That's it.

“Nice for a visit as a treat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Lovely views over looking the valley but over all a bit pricey for what you get. Had eggs Benny, very adverage, iced chocolate came with no under saucer or serviette & cream whet all over everything. Best friend told me to stop and get some hand made chocolates but could only see pre made items. Not in a hurry to come again unless its to bring some relatives out for a drive. Lovely yard but woudnt want to be here if it was windy or raining.

“Lovely views which you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I love the views and the setting, looking out across the valley. The service here is always a little slow and not so friendly, I think because it is always so busy. The food is always excellent though. Not cheap.
