Toowoomba’s OG fine dining restaurant


After more than two decades, Encores has rightly earned its place as a stalwart of Toowoomba’s restaurant scene.

This fine dining restaurant is definitely not trendy, but reliably serves delicious, classic meals. Lunch with a glass of wine is at the set price of $29/person, which makes it perfect for a business lunch or something a bit more leisurely with the girls.

During the day, Encores is simple and stylish. The place dives into fine dining at night, when the lights in the garden twinkle.

Encores is the obvious choice for a pre-show dinner at The Empire Theatre next door (their set menu will ensure you finish in time), but is also renowned as a date night spot. The baby grand in the corner comes alive, the doors open out to the garden when the weather is good… it’s a truly special place.

Make sure to book ahead, especially for a weekend dinner, as Encores often books out in advance. Mention to them if you’re going to a show as well, as entrees and desserts are perfectly timed around curtain times.
