“Superb food and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

A little out of the way unless you live in the Western suburbs but definitely worth the trip. We went in the evening and would love to go back for lunch to admire the view over the 18th hole. The evening we were there a female vocalist was providing entertainment which was tasteful and at a perfect vilume to allow conversations. The young wait staff were polite and attentive and very helpful when asked about any menu items and were happy to provide recommendations. The food is brilliant!! The crab lasagne is superb, a light creamy tomato based sauce that does not overpower the delicate flavout of the crab, and the entree size is extremely generous. The main course items we selected were cooked to perfection and beautifully presented and just the right size, with a selection of beautiful vegetables. The creme brulee and coffee was the perfect end to the meal! Drift also has a great wine list and an extensive selection of cocktails. David the owner has excelled yet again, and it is great to see him introducing special and fun events to Drift such as the Casino Royale New Years Eve function. Can thoroughly recommend this restaurant and will be back there soon. Half price lunches during the week are a great introduction to Drift and fabuloius value for money.

“Food is the focus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

A bit out of the way, but worth the effort. Four of us went for a birthday celebration - with some hearing loss amongst the group. The chatter was noisy, but didnt really interfere with conversation. There was no music or singing which allowed us to enjoy each other's company. The whole dining area overlooks part of the golf course with well kept greens and the occasional bit of entertainment as golfers pass by.

The food was a real highlight. There is clearly a focus on seafood, but other offerings as well. The seafood courses were delightful, although the entree sized crab lasagne was more than enough for two of us.... very rich. We all had different desserts which were just fabulous. The chocolate tart and the tiramisu in particular were a taste treat, tho they were all lovely. In addition the generally half priced lunch is an added bonus.
