Visited Emeraude with a girlfriend to celebrate my 50th birthday after seeing it advertised in the Courier Mail and on The Great Southeast - so many choices on the menu for brunch. Staff were very helpful when it came to deciding what to eat. Noise level was great - not too loud. Service was fabulous. Nothing to fault! Definitely will be coming again.

It was lovely to get out of town for a great food experience! I had the Cassoulet which I would have to say was the best I have had since the “Cassoulet Festival” in Castelnaudary France! Fabulous thank you! It is a pity the tables are not a little better presented considering the food is not cheap. A table cloth and linen napkins would add to the presentation! Will recommend to family and friends. Thank you!

We go to Emeraude quite often and always find the food amazing! Unfortunately this time my meal was extremely dry. I was very disappointed however the staff were very helpful and couldn’t fault anything else.

Had a wonderful lunch at Emeraudes. The food presentation was first class and the meals were delicious.
The eclairs for dessert were a highlight. The staff were so friendly, cheerful, attentive and helpful. Excellent wine list to choose from and the coffee was brilliant. I am not “an influencer” and paid for the meal we so enjoyed. Well worth the drive from the other side of Toowoomba. Can’t wait to go back.

Called in to Emeraude to share a piece of cake but saw what other people were eating for lunch and had to have the burger, which was delicious. Unfortunately, we were going back for dinner and it meant that at dinner we were only able to fit in a couple of entrees and a shared dessert much to the amusement of the staff who had seen us earlier at lunch. Service was fantastic, all staff attentive, knowledgeable of the food on offer and I can't speak highly enough of our experience there. The food was superb, loved the goats cheese and beetroot tart and blackberry creme brulee. Will be back to try the cassoulet as it looked amazing.

The food was amazing (as always) although we wished we'd been pre-advised that the menu would be limited for Mother's Day - food allergies meant one of our party only had one choice for each course, whereas he would normally have had more choices from the wider menu. But all in all, it was a truly lovely lunch with beautiful food and attentive service.

As a first-time brunch diner at Emeraude, I was very impressed. The food quality was incredible, the freshness outstanding. Pricing is higher than I'd normally be willing to spend but the serving sizes are huge therefore the value for money was evident. Can't wait to go back and try their lunch or evening menus.

Sorry to say this but although the food and majority of staff were very good, one waiter was openly rude about us bringing our 2year old son, even though he wasn't misbehaving, and we left feeling like we wouldn't come back again as we weren't made to feel at all welcome. Were very disappointed.

Emeraude is like finding a hidden jewel on the highway. We ate and had coffee several times during our stay in Hampton and each time was exceptional. The stewed apples alone would keep me coming back time and time again, let alone the amazing combination of flavours delivered on the plate in each and every menu item. The food and coffee quality here is truly divine.

Staff were very friendly and efficient. Although I had booked an outdoor table, it was no trouble to find us an inside table when the weather turned out to be a little chillier than expected. Nothing was too much trouble. My meal (Fish Tacos) was delicious and generous. Rosella Spritzer was very refreshing and the Spiced Rum Brulee was divine. I have dined here 3 times previously and am looking forward to my next visit..

Being a local we love going to Emmeraude and often suggest it to friends when they visit. The food is always amazing, the presentation superb! I didn't give it a 5 star as the meals took some time to come and we had to wait quite a few minutes for the last meal to be delivered to our table. Also the fish tacos I had were absolutely amazing but I found 3 fish bones in my last one which turned me off a little. The others had pork belly (always a favourite), the brisket pie was to die for and the smoked mackeral spread on sourdough fantastic. Oh and not to mention the dessert we all shared! The dessert bar is eye candy!Hard to resist!

Three of us celebrated my mother’s birthday with a quiet girls brunch. It was a cold autumns day but we were promptly seated inside, and those seated outside had blankets if required which was a lovely touch. It was after 10am so we perused the cocktail menu and selected 2 espresso martini’s and a non alcoholic rosella spritz (all which were lovely - I will have to try the rosella spritz with a shot of gin next time as per the waiters suggestion!)

For meals we ordered the sweet potato, potato & feta hashcakes with bacon, poached eggs and lime hollandaise, the herbed green waffles with sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs & chutney, and the lentil croquettes with roasted beetroot, goats cheese, avocado, pickled cucumbers and curry sauce and OH MY GOD, they were my absolute favourite. All food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious.

Yes the prices are not “cheap” and the wait for food is quite a while, but the friendly attentive staff, and the quality of the food/drinks would have me skipping back here in a heart beat! Thanks Team Emeraude!
