Highly recommend. Went there for lunch and was very happy. Went to go for dinner the following Sunday evening, but they were closed. Very disappointed, but am sure the staff deserve a break. :)

Great Italian food and which was not expected in such a small country town. We went there for dinner and then for coffee the next morning. Lovely atmosphere with cute Italian-style decor and relaxing background music. The only slight hiccup was a mix up with one of the dishes we ordered which ultimately did not matter because it was probably... More

Couldn't believe this little restaurant in Central QLD. Had lunch before leaving family. The staff were efficient and friendly , the food was superb and very tasty. Price was reasonable and a good selection for a child's menu. All agreed it was a lovely way to finish a holiday, will definitely visit again.

Had a good dinner here. Food is excellent, staff are really good and the ambiance is fine. There are number one in Emerald and if they continue at the level they are, i cannot see that changing. I had beef cheeks, soft, falling apart, delicious. Good beer selection, try the Pacific Ale, very good.

We have been here before and were so glad it is still around. Great food, from breakfast to dinner, and the coffee and cakes are first class. It is refreshing to find a place like this in a mining town where the emphasis is usually on bulk rather than innovation. Added to the food is the first class, friendly service.... More

A work colleague and I ate here for dinner. The food was excellent quality and the service was very good. This place was recommended to us by our motel. The only thing I would say is that you need to expect city prices but the portion size and quality was very good.

Dined twice in a week with a large group (7 people), all in all a really nice restaurant, probably the best in town. All mains were delicious (a diverse menu), service was great, an extensive beer and wine list.

Travelling alone for work can often make dinner a slightly awkward and lonely business. And sometimes crowded restaurants simply reinforce the sense of being alone. Not at Le Porte Rosse. On a Friday night having just landed in the smallish town of Emerald, I ventured out to look around and eat. In five minutes it felt as thought I'd looked... More
