Wheelchair accessibility only extends to the paving, not the tables ... food is excellent though BUT some of the waiters need to adopt the art of actually being courteous when necessary instead of faking it for a tip ... at least I thought he was faking it until I saw the bill. Our waiter on Saturday was very nice BUT... More

It's great for the kids. They love the outdoor area. The menu has a large variety. There is something for everyone.

Our first visit was for lunch when I bought a Groupon voucher for my husband and I. It was a beautiful Friday afternoon in mid April. The surroundings and weather made it a wonderful experience. Our choice of meals for lunch was very limited but the meal itself was well presented and very delicious. Our meal included a glass of... More

We found this restaurant through Groupon and was amazed to find such a venie in the middle of Parklands. It has good open outdoor and indoor space with plenty of grounds for kids to enjoy which includes, swings, trampoline, fishing and field for playing ball games. The staff were very friendly and the food was good with exception to the... More

If you've been travelling for a while and you just feel like some good food - both nutritious with a generous portion, try the Chicken Caesars Salad. Delivery Extreme will deliver it wherever you are. It's a favourite to those who've tried it - a green salad topped with chicken, croutons, feta, olives, parmesan and sun dried tomatoes and comes...

Well they starting packing up the buffet shortly after 4 while people in my group was still eating from it. They have a problem with bees and our grandson got stung by one at the table. They did try and... More

My wife and I hooked up with another couple for dinner at Driftwoods. I decided to try the lambshank. Something I hadn't had in ages. My buddy took the same. The ladies went for the rump. One rare, one medium. While the steaks appeared to be cooked as ordered and did look good, the lambshank was beyond delicious. In fact,... More

Food was great and we had 2 children of the age 5 and 6 who loved the play area. The only down side was that the kiddies menu was a bit pricy for what it actually is my toasted sandwich was less than a kiddies hotdog.

A party of 10 of us visited here recently for dinner - my grandson chose the venue for his 10th birthday because they have a trampoline!!! The venue is starting to look a little tired and no ambience - no music either. Because I chose garlic snails without the cheese sauce they arrived in a bowl (not the usual serving... More
