About The Cottage Restaurant

Set inside a charming heritage Queenslander on Limestone Street sits The Cottage Restaurant, 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 best at dusk. Find seasonal and local cuisine with a Mediterranean influence, perhaps savouring an entree of cured duck breast, quail egg, focaccia and gribiche; before mains such as 48-hour slow cooked pork belly and mignon, Waldorf salad and vinegar pearls. Steak lovers won’t go past sirloin Wagyu brisket, roast garlic puree, beans and café de Paris; for a decadent finish try, frozen coffee, dehydrated chocolate, coffee cake and mint gel.

Tremendous!
It's hard to believe meat could be served any better than this. Beautifully tender and lovingly tended.

Atmosphere, Service, Food all Stellar
As a visitor to Australia from California I was charmed and delighted by the Cottage. And I decided I would try the smoked kangaroo--delicious.

Wonderful food and Excellent Service!
The Cottage Restaurant where the food is cooked and presented perfectly. Mark and Angela opened their restaurant earlier to accommodate our family Saturday Lunch for our Mum's 90th birthday as i found out when I was leaving I mentioned how I couldn't understand why the place wasn't packed Angela said "We don't usually open for lunch" which made us feel so special. Thank you Mark and Angela so very much!

Exceptional!
It looks like a little cottage but it's anything but! When I wonder in I'm always greeted by with amazing hospitality a warm smile. Truly one of Ipswich's fine dining hidden treasures.

Intimate dining, amazing food and service
Chef Mark creates the most amazing meals from entrees, mains and desserts. My favourite so far was the Wagyu beef. It was cooked to perfection, and the sides were gorgeous. It is fantastic not to have to travel for the best steak! Also Angela makes a fantastic coffee, with perfect Crema. As a coffee snob she is one of very few Baristas who I give top marks to. I love the venue, the view over Ipswich and the intimate service style. Well done and hope you are here for many years to come.

Wonderful Evening
We had heard about The Cottage being one if not the best place in Ipswich to go for excellent food and great service. We were not disappointed, the food was exquisite and the service just as good. The relaxed atmosphere, very friendly and attentive service followed up by a beautiful meal made our wedding anniversary special. I would highly recommend The Cottage to anyone who is looking for an amazing place to dine in Ipswich.

80th Birthday Celebration
A big thank you to Angela, Mark and staff at The Cottage for making my mother's 80th birthday just perfect. The set up, food and service was outstanding. We had 30 guests ranging in age from 5-85 years with everyone accommodated for. I strongly recommend The Cottage Restaurant for your next function, special event or dining experience.

Well Worth A Visit!
We had our first meal at the Cottage Restaurant tonight and I am so pleased that it was a wonderful dining experience. The food was well presented and terrific. The service was attentive with no staff hovering by. We were seated on the verandah which added to our enjoyment. We would definitely recommend The Cottage and we will be returning there soon.
