5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 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.

“Heaven on Earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012 via Local Picks

Now this is a MUST DO for anyone visiting the Gold Coast and wanting a special experience that incorporates Great Food, Great service and a location that you will not want to leave. Set in pristine rain forrest that takes your breath away, with the amazing sound of tropical birds singing in the bush.( Watch out for the Kookaburra's they love steak and have been known to snatch it from your plate.) Then there are the Rosella's and Lorrikeets , whip birds etc.
Oh I forgot to say the food is sensational as a bonus.
The also have amazing overnight accommodation if you can spare the time to really soak it all in. Not to be missed.
