108 Limestone Street‚ Ipswich City

Set inside a charming heritage Queenslander on Limestone Street sits The Cottage Restaurant built in 1861, an Ipswich establishment for delectable cuisine in distinctive surrounds. Once a home, converted bedrooms now serve as thoughtfully appointed dining spaces giving a touch of seclusion warmed by fireplaces with extra room available out on a verandah, enjoyed most at dusk. To eat, find seasonal and local cuisine with Mediterranean influence.

During the day they serve morning tea, lunch and high teas. At night come and experience intimate fine dining with candle lit tables. Celebrate that special occasion.

They also cater for functions for 10 or more people and you can have your own private room.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
