We had wanted to visit Songbirds Restaurant for many years and finally got the chance on Good Friday. While the setting is truly beautiful the rest left us somewhat disappointed. Even though the food was good the portions were extremely small and we left feeling hungry. We went back to our cottage to have supper. The prices charged should be... More

I have covered the overnight stay in my earlier review but the dining experience was most enjoyable and the lady who served us was delightful, helpful and friendly and we loved our meal and each had something different and no one was even slightly disappointed.

After looking for accommodation for our short 2 night get away up on Tambourine Mountain i had seen that Songbirds had a restaurant, although we stayed elsewhere i had read the reviews and viewed the menu and hoped we could get ourselves a booking here on the Good Friday although knowing most likely everything may be closed. But as luck... More

I have eaten at Song Birds over 12 years. The setting is truly beautiful and the service has always been correct but the wow factor depends on who is in the kitchen. The chef has changed several times - this is the problem when the owner is not the cook?

We came to songbirds as a lot of restaurants were closed over Easter. We rocked up and it was a bit expensive for us having a 2 course costing $58. My partner and I shared a 2 course and the wonderful chef and lady ended up giving us a 3 course meal free of charge! I thought that was so... More

Myself and my misses had a 3 course meal each. The smokey flavours of the kangaroo, beef and the duck were all amazing!

Once again, we booked for a birthday celebration with our visiting Canadian friends. Songbirds NEVER fails to impress! We've visited over and over for the last 12 years, and there's nowhere we'd rather celebrate than here. The food is always superb, the venue superb. We just wanted the kookaburras to show up today and they didn't😟 Well done Bonnie, we'll... More

I booked Songbirds Restaurant for dinner for my husbands birthday. The first word that comes to mind when entering the restaurant is 'wow.' The restaurant is in a beautiful rainforest setting and very tranquil. We were looked after by 2 waitresses, one of whom had just started working at the restaurant. Even though she was obviously trying to 'find her... More

Four of us enjoyed a long lovely Sunday lunch at Songbirds. Happily, we each choose different dishes for each of the three courses, and we each tried each other's food so I can fairly safely say that anything you order from Songbirds will be delicious. That said, there were highlights - the rabbit was the best dish of the day,... More

As you drive into Songbirds, you will be amazed at the serenity, peace and totally beautiful ambiance of this most famous eatery. The staff, as always, most welcoming and as you sit in the bush style setting you may enjoy the music of the bird songs during the day or the intriguing bush night calls at night. But now, to...
