About Dovetails Restaurant

Enjoy life's simple pleasures at Dovetails Restaurant on Limestone Street in Ipswich, where every day is a special occasion. This relaxed Mod Oz diner, nestled inside 4 Hearts Brewing, boasts a contemporary space where polished wood, a marble bar and intimate table settings create an ideal spot to linger over a meal from early until late. Take a seat on the sunny terrace under the canopy of a large tree to savour breaky delights of hot smoked salmon fillet, potato rosti, poached eggs, asparagus and herbed sour cream. For those dining later, expect entrees like twice-cooked pork belly, native emu apple and chilli relish with pear coleslaw; before char-grilled lamb rump, couscous, smoked cherry tomato, beef jus and native mint labneh, or perfectly cooked Wagyu with truffle mushroom sauce.
