It's a restaurant, it's a hotel, it's so much more
It's a restaurant. It's a hotel. It's an art gallery and shop. It's a magnificent view all rolled into one. It is the Polish Place in Mt. Tamborine.
When you pull into the parking lot, you know you are in for a treat here because you have already been driving on Mt. Tamborine's Main Western Road. The views of the valley sweep down the mountain and open wide to the Great Dividing Range off in the distance awaiting your inspection. This section of highway is just past the Witches Falls National Park hiking trails. It is a good way to spend some time after you have completed your hikes or shopping in the town sites.
Anticipation is high as you make your way around the end of the chalet style building, winding your way through the small gardens. These dot the way to the breathtaking views that await you and your party. The wooden deck and patios hold numerous tables, most with umbrellas for those warm days.
Lorikeets are fed on sight and they are a raucous, vibrant bunch who never seem to tire of eating. Photo opportunities are plentiful here at the Polish Place, so remember your camera.
The food is Polish, complete with Cabbage Rolls and Perogys. The meals are good and largely filling, with yummy cream sauces and lots of meat. They have an assortment of beers and a few Polish versions added in.
We have yet to experience a sunset from up here, but maybe one day, as there is accommodation that takes advantage of the 180 degree views.
The chalets that line up next to the restaurant can be rented for single night or multiple nights and each comes with breakfast. There is a Lover's Package that includes 12:00 noon checkout and dinner for 2 served to your chalet. There is also a Polish Vodka plus a Polish Fudge welcome gift. It also comes with a Champagne breakfast to enjoy at your leisure. More information can be had at www.polishplace.com.au.
Come for the food, peruse the art gallery and shop, sit back and enjoy the non-stop views. Come for a couple of hours or come for a couple of days. Come for a sunset up on Mt. Tamborine.
