We had a very special family lunch planned and PippinTook2 was perfect. The welcome and service was exceptional. The food was perfect (considering that we had two generations of chefs dining, this is not an exaggeration). Good food treated with care and respect cannot be beaten. Every course and selection was a delight. Will be back, even without a special occasion to celebrate.

A hidden gem. Fantastic food and personalised service. We started with Peking duck spring rolls to share followed by Beer battered barramundi with gorgeous fries and my partner had pan roasted chicken with baked polenta and chasseur sauce with a side of steamed veg. Desserts were to die for. Toffee date pudding with caramel sauce and salted caramel ice cream and Callebaut mousse au chocolate. We will be back

We recently had a family celebration and 7 of us went to PippinTook2 for a night out.
The food , atmosphere and Helen our host , were absolutely fantastic and we couldn’t have been looked after any better.
Throughly recommended and we will be back

Magnificent. Tamborine residents are so lucky to have this place on their doorstep. Friendly service, fine dining atmosphere, unbelievably good food, I don’t even know where to start describing it all. I have posted some photos but I am sure the menu will change seasonally and be just as good no matter what is on offer. Stunning presentation and equally stunning flavours, a beautiful experience. Catered for my coeliac partner with a separate and generous menu that felt like it was curated with care and attention to ensure his dining experience wasn’t compromised in any way. He commented that our dinner at Pippin Took 2 has “ruined dining out for us forever” because it was so good that we will be hard pressed to find an equal. I can’t wait to go back. P.S. the prices are a surprise, equal to or cheaper than other, less impressive, places on the mountain.

`Thank you so so much for the most magnificent dinner we’ve ever had. David is normally scared to try new things - he “doesn’t like cauliflower” but you made the soup sound so good he had to try it. He said it was like if you wished for a magic bowl that tasted like all your favourite things. The mains were both amazing, next time I’d get the gluten free version too, that beurre blanc was to die for. We were hoping to get back again before we go home to the Gold Coast but I’m not sure we will,  But we aren’t far away and we will be back

perfect in every way. We have found a new favourite. beautiful service, excellent food and amazing decor. GF options galore. Can't wait to return.

Epic food, atmosphere and service. Enjoyed every aspect of this cosy little restaurant.

We did not have a reservation for a Saturday, however Helen found us a table and we had an incredible meal. Appetizers were shared and had incredibly wonderful flavors and textures. Mains were as impressive as any hatted restaurant Australia has. Dessert- well even the caramel ice cream is hand made by Ross. French press coffee to keep you awake from the food coma and the drive back down the mountain. Perfect experience. As Peregrine Took would highly recommend, eat and drink like a carefree Hobbit at this highly acclaimed restaurant.

Had a wonderful experience dining at PippinTook2 last night for my birthday. Owners are very friendly and professional and went out of the way to accommodate us with our 3 young girls. The food was cooked to perfection. Highly recommended

Went for the set menu dinner last night and was hugely impressed! Excellent food and service, beautifully cooked and presented in a lovely flower filled atmosphere. Trés trés délicieuse. We will be back to try some of the other wonderful looking dishes on the menu!

The food was excellent, service good and ambiance pleasant. Each part of every course of the meal was tasty. I had to restrain myself from licking the plates.
