My friends and I continue to talk of how we soooo much enjoyed our luncheon at Emeraude last Friday 15th March. Our senses were fullfilled to capacity, delightful meal & service. Inside was a little too loud with space a premium, outside will be for next time. Thank you folk at Emeraude.👍🍸

If you choose to dine anywhere in the Toowoomba region, choose Emeraude. As the name suggests a pure gem is on offer for those who appreciate the culinary delights of people who love food. No other establishment exists within our region that delivers such food quality and importantly, menu difference, a must try, and a must return.

We had a lovely time. It was a special (romantic) occasion, and when booking, I asked for a quiet table. The restaurant actually put us in a very quiet corner, behind a hedge, and we had the whole little corner to ourselves. Just us and candlelight :) Thank you so much for doing this for us, it was a very special evening. Outstanding food and wine, attentive perfect service, really enjoyed everything.

This was our 1st time visit to Emeraude for my Valentines Birthday dinner. Waitstaff were friendly, very well trained and made our night very special with my rosella spritzer. This restaurant serves the best food in Toowoomba exceptional flavour, plating was spot on and something a little different. The sea scallops were outstanding as was the slow cooked beef cheeks and pork belly. Loved the dessert. We are very fussy patrons and we were so impressed. A restaurant that has got it right and we will be back. Now our favourite dining experience. Worth the drive! Thankyou.

The food was excellent. The wait staff were generally very good. The time to get a breakfast order in and the time for the food to come out was quite long. We would still come back due to the quality of the food but the time to turn-around the order can be greatly improved. This was the only thing which detracted from the experience.

We recently enjoyed a very pleasant lunch at Emeraude. Though situated close to the New England Highway at Hampton, traffic noise was not a problem as Emeraude is buffered by very attractive gardens which act as a visual and sound barrier. The peaceful northern Downs rural surroundings were matched by the attractive and relaxed furnishings and colour palette of Emeraude. The service was excellent with a cheerful and knowledgeable staff who could not be faulted. The pizza and burger offerings received a very enthusiastic thumbs up but we found the filling in the French style Chicken Pie, though tasty, to be rather dry. However, the pie crust was 'just right'. The dessert offerings in the standard cake box display were of good quality but were not what I would describe as memorable.

One request to management - could you please prepare a better organised menu for your customers to peruse? Part of the charm of Emeraude is the fact that it uses local produce almost exclusively, and thus the menu must be a 'movable feast' as it responds to the local weather gods and their unavoidable impact on the local small producers. However, with a standard computer template with suitable headings, a more organised daily menu could be produced daily and would add to your customers' comfort significantly.

Lunch at Emeraudes was an excellent local dining experience for us and I would encourage all to try it.

This was our second dining experience at Emeraude which is about 1.5 hrs drive from home for us. We feel it’s worth the country drive though, for the excellent food with a very interesting menu to choose from. The service was only average as they appeared understaffed on what was apparently a busier than usual Thursday, but our meal was worth the wait. We’ll be back!!

Lovely meal - seemed to be limited options for vegetarians (but the pizza was really tasty.) Very loud inside...next time I will request a table on the verandah if possible as it was difficult to have a conversation.

I'm a regular and highly recommend breakfast/brunch whether you like a cooked, fruit or sweet start to the day. Danishes are incredible. Best mushrooms I have ever eaten.

This review is of last dinner I ate at Emeruade. Magical, leafy courtyard for outdoor dining with generous space between tables to enjoy ambiance and private conversation. It was surprisingly cool for January, and a blanket was supplied to the one of us that needed it.

We selected a shared tasting plate and main each from the latest seasonal produce menu. Tasting plate was almost enough for a meal for three ladies. Local sourdough bread, olives, chutney, pickles, and baked soft cheese with honey. Restaurant made crumbed cauliflower and beetroot dip. Plus more. Super yum.

I had a cheese souffle for a main - they created a vegetarian version especially. Excellent, rich, creamy. Again, could easily be shared.

I'm no connoisseur of drinks, but tried an experimental elder flower and gin cocktail. It was very good (but not as amazing as the rosella flower and gin cocktail sometimes on the menu). Wine was very god too.

Had a nice table in the courtyard, however it did get a bit hot. We should have taken a table inside. Great food and very generous servings. Ha French Chicken Pie and the Cauliflower. Both were delicious. Drove up from Brisbane for my friend's birthday and it was worth the drive. Will be back.

The meals are very large portions so we shared a tasting plate to leave room for the delicious dessert. We had 4 kids and 2 adults with us and they looked after us really well, bringing extra plates to share meals with the kids. A great sitting so nice to just sit, relax and enjoy a delicious lunch and a glass of bubbly.
