My husband and I have visited Songbirds for lunch on several occasions and love the stunning setting and superb food. Saturday April 5th was our wedding anniversary and where better to have a celebration lunch (or so we thought) than Songbirds? The service was extremely poor, if not inadequate, and the waiting staff inexperienced. The two waiters on duty looked... More

Yes we had a problem on Saturday unfortunately, while most guest were very happy we had a couple that service was not up to Songbirds standard. Being a destination restaurant we have very few well trained staff living close ,by and not many that are willing to drive 45 minutes each way especially just for a lunch or dinner service.... More

We had dinner at the Songbirds restaraunt last winter and were so delighted with everything, the food was absolutely delicious, service fantastic and a beautifully romantic environment. We stated at the time that we would love to come and stay there. It took us a little while but my partner surprised me with a night there for my 40th birthday... More

Thanks so much for making time to do a lovely review for us. We'll look so forward to having you for the 2 night stay for your anniversary in April. The first morning the kookaburras can be a little deafening but by the second morning they're lovely as you're more used to listening to them - that's one of the... More

Songbirds was so peaceful & relaxing. The accommodation was beautiful, set into the rainforest with only the birdlife & frogs for company. We dined in the restaurant on both nights and the food & service was excellent. I would recommend the property to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing break away from the hectic lifestyle we all live in. Ian,... More

Thanks for making time to write such a lovely review after staying with us. I love that you dined both nights too. There's heaps of variety on the current menu so I'm sure you would have been able to try some of our favourites dishes. I hope you got up to the organic gardens to have a wonder around… there's...

We went to Songbirds for our anniversary and stayed just one night...We both wish we had stayed longer; or at least had arrived earlier in the day. it was beautiful, peaceful, restful, and romantic. Although you are in Mt Tamborine, once you drive down the drive through the front entrance shrouded in greenery, you could be anywhere. It is very... More

This is one of my favorite holidaying venues, I work in a very stressful environment and could not imagine a place like this existed, am sure glad it does.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us. It's great that you were able to walk the property and spend time in the gardens. In the last couple of weeks the lime tress have started producing again (all 18 of them!), and the pomegranates are almost ripe, there's heaps of zucchinis and their flowers, most of the tomatoes are...

We tried to dine and service was so crap and when I went to the toilet , there was a human defecation on the wall and on the floor. We will not go back ever again.

How do Trip Advisor let nonsense like this be viewed? If I thought it would be taken in ANYWAY seriously by readers then I would take legal action as comments like this are preposterous. The only couple that ''tried'' to dine with us over the weekend and were turned away wanted to have just coffee. We are a top end... More

My husband and I took my elderly parents last weekend for three nights and each couple had their own well appointed villa nestled in the rain forest. We had booked to eat at their restaurant on the first night and were not disappointed.There is a short walk from the villas to the award winning restaurant, but we preferred to drive... More

I am SO thrilled I've discovered songbirds, being in top-end hospitality myself its very hard to find the WOW anymore - Songbirds surpassed this on every level.

Thanks so much for enjoying Songbirds and making time to write a review. I'm thrilled you found us and enjoyed one of our biodynamic Pinot Gris. Songbirds supports (mostly smaller) vineyards that grow for serious passion rather then mostly for profit. Great to receive comments on our food too, thanks.

I think I found one of Songbird secret ingredients : their absolutely magic organic veggie garden! Tucked away behind the villas, this manicured vegetable garden and orchard show how much Songbird and their staff care for their customers. It starts with pure ingredients!
