Our Car Club did a drive day from the Gold Coast stopping for coffee at The Gap. We arrived for lunch and Birches had set up our tables on the veranda. This was good for a large group. The food was very good, the service and the staff were very helpful. The comments from our group were great place to have lunch. This is our 2nd visit and we will return.

We were given a gift voucher for this restaurant and visited mid week Their view of Moreton bay was spoilt by less than perfect weather but their log fire more than made up for it with cosy ambience The food varied in quality from a very good Moreton bay bug tart ( more a filo pastry parcel than a tart ) an average main an asparagus dish coated with a thick cheese sauce very 1970s to the dessert of creme brûlée which was excellent in taste and presentation Staff were accommodating service slow but understand as restaurant was nearly empty and food cooked to order .
Thank goodness they changed their name from MUNCHKINS thats what always put us off visiting before our loss! !

This is a excellent restaurant Lovely fire going on a cold day All courses were great I had moreton bay bugs in a tart on a bed of large prawns for entree Chicken fillets stuffed with brie cheese for main A friend had crepes for dessert which she said were delicious Meals are large so could not fit in any dessert Service was very good Nice choice of wines
The views are right out to the bay on a clear day We had a lovely lunch & a nice drive there

On a perfect Sunday Autumn's day we visited Birches Restaurant for lunch. Lucky we booked as there was a sign out the front saying that only people with bookings could be seated. The restaurant was full and prompt service had us sitting at our table out the front, overlooking the road and the scenic view beyond. The food was to die for! Moreton Bay Bug tart for entree and chef's special reef & beef for main & sticky date pudding for desert will be a meal I will remember forever. Servings were a generous size and cooked to perfection. Service was also great though I did overhear the people at the table next to us complaining about the time it took for them to get their mains. The only small downside was the takeaway coffee's we got when leaving (to enjoy the view at the lookout) - they were very bitter and burnt.

It can be difficult to find a restaurant with nicely cooked "modern Australian" close to Dayboro/Petrie. However just a short drive up the road is this pleasant restaurant were you can be guaranteed good service, a tasty meal, cold drinks and a lovely view. You really can't go wrong breakfast, lunch or dinner. Nobody said it was fine dining up there with Cafe Sydney, but it's a fantastic restaurant in a top spot. Super for locals and those driving by en route to the Sunshine Coast or Brisbane. Would recommend the duck spring rolls and the Moreton bay bug entree, great selection of diverse mains and a huge desert list.
