We came here for a quiet lunch..I was with a friend who lives nearby and had been before. The setting is gorgeous and I was reminded of the Balinese rainforest . The entrance had Buddha statues and an oriental peaceful feel so I was very taken aback once we entered the half openair restaurant to be greeted by pounding, grinding...

Mostly positives for this lovely venue. We loved the peaceful, solitary feel of the villas which are surrounded by trees, birds and cicadas (no mosquitos), the four poster bed, the spacious, generous size of the villa and balcony, the appointments, and, as it was a 40 degree day, the air conditioning, and the spa bath. The one bedroom villa is...

Absolutely stunning setting. I have eaten here for lunch and also dinner last night. So relaxed and the surrounds are beautiful. The service is great and the menu is modern. The food is so different and very well presented to any other restaurants. Definitely a must for you to enjoy it

Songbirds is located in a very quiet corner of Tamborine Mountain behind the Gold Coast. There are a small number of cottages on the property as well as a restaurant and bar. Songbirds is snuggled into the rainforest and the verandah of our cottage opened into the rainforest canopy. The accomodation was roomy and comfortable with a faux open fire...

I left this place with mixed emotions and unfortunately will not recommend. The accomodation was beautiful and relaxing. The restaurant was a treat with scrumptious food. The disappointment was Customer service. I've never paid that amount of money to stay somewhere and be treated like we did. Our waitress for dinner called me a pig, um.......she was trying to be...

Songbirds Rainforest Retreat restaurant must rate as one of the best restaurants we have visited in many years. Although the location is a little remote, the food is exquisite! From the entrée to dessert, we were really impressed. Highly recommended. We will be back in two weeks time!
