I have been to Songbirds many times, and i would rate it highly in my top 3 dining destinations in the whole of QLD. The staff are always friendly and more than happy to accommodate any request to ensure our experience is up to their standards. The surroundings are fabulous, as you are literally dining in the rain forest. The... More

We decided to try out Songbirds last week during the eat local week as we had heard from friends that the food was remarkable. From the moment we walked in, my partner and I were utterly impressed. We were greeted by a friendly waitress and service continued to be exceptional throughout the night. The food was all fresh and delicious... More

Had dinner on Sunday night. From the moment we walked in we were impressed, beautiful rainforest and beautiful decor, along with a beautiful smile from a lovely waitress. We had the 5 course degustation with matching wines, delicious food, impeccable presentation, perfectly matched wines that we hadn't tried before and all of this with a gorgeous soft cool breeze softly...

Hi, my partner and I stayed at Songbirds for our honeymoon for 3 nights, we went straight their after our wedding reception and were treated to a special dinner as we didn't feel like like eating the 5 course meal and I wanted to still wear my wedding dress :). We spent alot of time relaxing in the double spa... More

You were so gorgeous in your beautiful wedding gown. We love our guests to take some of the organic fruit, veggies, and herbs with them and it's lovely that they were put to good use. It was such a pleasure to have you both and we hope to see you again for your anniversary. Bonnie More

We have just spent 3 wonderful days winding down at Songbirds. Set in a private and beautiful rainforest setting, you start to relax the moment you enter your villa. They have a fabulous large tub to soak in whilst you listen to the birdsong all around. A stroll through the property reveals a well thought out and abundant vegetable garden.... More

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

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

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

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...
