    The only cafe in Toowoomba that has consistently good food and good coffee. It is relaxing with easy listening music in a beautiful garden setting.

    Our main waiter seemed very sullen, not overly friendly. While food was reasonable, prices seemed inflated. Great spot though, right across from the park

    Fantastic service, food was lovely, you don't mind paying a bit extra when you get those combined and the atmosphere was lovely, we'll definitely return on our next visit to Toowoomba. Definitely advise to book as a very popular venue

    Excellent place for a nice evening out! Lovely food and service. 10/10 recommend! Only slight issue we had was we didn’t realise you can’t split the bill more then 2 ways but we worked it out.

    We had Breakfast and enjoyed it so much we cancelled our other restaurant booking and rebooked for dinner. Shame. When we got our menu we were asked what we'd like to order before we'd even opened the menu. This was an indication that the staff appeared to want an early night since there wasn't a lot of diners. Table service was poor but that might have been because the staff were enjoying themselves in the kitchen so front of house was neglected. We weren't asked if we wanted a 2nd drink neither tea or coffee. We were only asked about dessert when we got up and looked in the cakes cabinet. We weren't asked if we enjoyed our meal nor thanked of coming or wished a nice night...all the pleasantries. The breakfast meals, staff and service were excellent but the evening staff let the restaurant down.

    Food was delicious but took over 1 and half hour to come out of kitchen. The staff advised though that it would take 40mins. They then made up for it by giving us desserts on house! Very delicious desserts might I add.

    Being such a busy time in Toowoomba with the Carnival of Flowers the staff were under pressure but handled the situation very well. The long wait for our meal was explained early so we were happy to wait. The busyness also explains the higher than normal sound level. The meals were of the usual high quality.

    We have tried many times to visit Cafe Valletta but each time it was booked out. After a successful booking last night I can see why. The staff friendly, helpful but never overbearing. The food delicious. We had the soup of the day AMAZING It was beetroot and potato and so tasty. The mains my husband had grilled barramundi and I had Honey Mustard Chicken. Both were faultless with beautiful flavours. Our only disappointment we were not able to try the desserts. We could not eat another thing. A nice choice of wines and cocktails. It was a lovely way to celebrate our 45th Wedding Anniversary Next time we are in Toowoomba we shall remember to book early and we will definately be back.

    My husband and I have dined here many times over many years and we like it. This time there were 5 of us and we were put into one of the back rooms to accommodate the numbers - that in itself was fine and lovely. The problem was our entree share platter was forgotten for so long that after enquiring about it and waiting longer we then cancelled it and just had our mains. The problem with being in one of the back rooms was that we seemed to get forgotten by the wait staff who never seemed to check on the back rooms, and one of us had to get up and find someone to attend to our table when we were ready for coffee.

    Even though I booked a table we were given one closest to the counter which was being hastily being cleared as we sat down. It was noisy and there was foot traffic. Other tables with reserved signs on them were in a quieter location and when I asked for one of those I was ignored. These tables were not used at all during our time in the cafe. My meal, the chicken salad, was meant to have haloumi and pumpkin and pepitas in it, no haloumi, no pepitas and not much pumpkin. The "dressing" was just olive oil, rather disappointing.

    Waited over an hour for lunch on Sunday 19 September without any communication from staff. Sides were served way before main. Lunch finally served at 2pm when they were starting to pack up restaurant for the day and felt rushed to finish our meal Plastic straws still being used - please abolish single use plastics and consider the environment. Extremely disappointed given it was supposed to be my birthday lunch and nil recognition from staff for this occasion.

    Booked for dinner on Saturday night. We waited to be seated and were ignored by 3 staff until I asked if we were in the correct area to wait. Drink order was warm but waiter returned with cold drinks. Food took longer than expected but the meal was pleasant. Dirty dishes were seen by staff walking passed several times but left on our table until asked to have them removed. Warm drinks served a second time.

    We visited here on Saturday and the waitress advised us that there was going to be 40 min wait for our food which we agreed to. The waitress forgot to bring us menus and our food didn't come out until one hour and half and we had only ordered food such as a salad, pre-prepared pie and burger, the food was cold and when we asked for water a few times it was forgotten about.

    Despite booking an outdoor table as we had a dog, we were told on arrival our booking was indoor - obviously minus the dog. Not acceptable customer service. We were then informed we could sit at any empty outdoor table. Luckily there were several. Had we shown on time all outdoor tables were filled by 1100am. We booked here as it was our second visit to Cafe Valletta, having driven for over two hours (to see the flower festival parade). Food ok, price ok
