Description: Drift is located on the top of beautiful Tamborine Mountain the jewel in the crown of the Gold Coast Hinterland. Offering a relaxed environment where you can take a break for a beautiful Merlo coffee made with love and care by one of our qualified Baristas or perhaps something a little stronger from our fully stocked Bar including Cocktails and local wine. If you need some energy to get you started then our great breakfast menu is just for you. Lunch can be had relaxing in our cafe lounge, in the restaurant or on the deck over looking the park, the choice is yours. We use local produce to ensure you get the freshest quality and taste that Tamborine Mountain has to offer. With arguably two of the Mountains best chefs our meals are bound to please. Our menu is changed with the seasons to ensure you get to taste a wide range of beautiful dishes. While spending some time with us at Drift check out the Aboriginal Art work from North East Arnhem Land that provides an interesting feature and a great talking point. The drift bar offers a place to be entertained with live music every second and last Saturday of the month, check our web site to see who is playing next. If you have a special event and want to ensure it is special for everyone including yourself then let us take care of the entire event, from the venue to the food, the entertainment , the drinks and even the transport to ensure you get home safely. Whether you want a full table service meal or finger food we can cater for up to 100 people. Go on, come on in and see us today or book a table for your next meal out

“Good but not great”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I visited delivino for lunch with my mother and were not overly impressed with the food or service. There was nothing terrible about the cafe but it did not meet my expectations (especially after reading previous reviews). Our meals came quickly but I felt for the price there was much left to be desired - quite small portions for all three meals and the food was a little plain. The wine list looked lovely and matched the choices on the menu. The deli in the front of the restaurant was lovely with lots of beautiful relishes, sauces, wines and much much more.

Thank you for taking the time to give us constructive criticism. You highlighted the areas important to your experience and this will always be discussed at our weekly meetings. It's sometimes challenging to meet everyone's expectations, however, from all our previous positive feedback it is disappointing when the 'actual' doesn't match the hype. We trust you will visit us again when in the area, maybe in a different aspect of our business.
Cheers

“Last day on the mountain”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Visited with our family on our last day on the mountain before leaving them and returning to the UK. Very accommodating for a party of seven, including children. Excellent food and staff went out of their way to accommodate the children's needs. Quite expensive but well worth it.

“A little bit of everything”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We headed up here on Easter Monday, and we were really happy with the experience. We did a wine tasting in the front deli section, which costs $5, which will is refunded if you purchase a bottle of wine. We are very lucky we booked our lunch at the restaurant behind the deli, because it was packed. Conveniently, you can book this online on their website. The food, while a little expensive, was very tasty, and the deli has a fantastic range of products and packs you can purchase.

Hi and thank you for your review! Its important to cater for everyone's needs when out and about, and travelling around in a new place can certainly take up valuable time. Its a great venue for a wine tasting and then a little relax in the restaurant as it buys you a little time to absorb your wine tasting. We are always changing the content of our selection in all of our areas, come back and visit us again, we would love to see you again soon!

A special mention goes to Rebecca, who made my parents and us have an enjoyable and pre-wedding lunch.
