“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The food was amazing, some of the best food I have had in my life. You will need to order 3 coarses as portions are expectedly small and this can be expensive but worth the treat. Service was good mostly, we ate and stayed there for 3 nights so the level of service did depend on who was working at the time. Disapointing that we were celebrating an engagement but cocktails were unavailable for my new fiance' due to their only being 1 waitperson to service the 10 or so customers in the restaurant. In sumary the food was spectauclar and was enough to make up for the up and down service.. but only just.

“Great food in cool funky atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Loved the food, service was very good and it was just a cool relaxed atmosphere with good views and very inquisitive kookaburras and magpies.

“Romantic dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Song birds on a Friday night, Food was great, staff were a bit shy and didn’t want to be too helpful. Our table was uneven, chairs were a bit hard to sit on too eat our meal this may have been due to the table, the staff tried to fix with a few coasters.
Over all been there don’t have to do it again

“Great wedding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

As a guest at a firends wedding I was really impressed with the food. It was high quality, tasty and well presented. Take a jacket if it could get cool because the walls are open at the top and can get breezy.
