The Owner

Raised in the Lockyer Valley, Chris Cottone has been surrounded by the business mentality his entire life. Growing up on a farm with his parents and two siblings, Chris quickly learnt the meaning of hard work through helping his parents out on the farm and working in their feed shed. Therefore, it came as no surprise when Chris decided to open a business of his own. Starting out with a chaffing business, then also opening a salon in town, Chris was always eager to do more.

The idea of ‘Cottone’s’ first arose on an overseas trip. Within only weeks, the idea started to become a reality. Opening up a café was not going to be enough for Chris, he felt that Gatton needed to be offered more and so here we are!

Transforming the venue from a warehouse to what it is today, was an indescribable experience. Blood, sweat and tears were poured into the construction of the restaurant. Come September 2016, we couldn’t have been more proud to present what we had created to the public!

We are now on our third year of operation and still find ourselves constantly expanding and creating new ideas to offer our customers more. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for this year!

The Team

Our high customer service standards are our first priority. Our extensive staff training program leaves us confident that our team will meet all your requirements. We strive to ensure your experience at Cottone’s is spectacular, each and every time.
