The luscious rainforest location and the restaurant decor are surpassed by the incredible food, obviously prepared by a chef who knows and loves what he does and has an eye for detail when it comes to presentation - artistic. The attention to detail was also apparent in the wait staff and "the boss" whose sense of humour was infectious. If I could, I’d love to dine at Songbirds every night.

The atmosphere is only surpassed by the sensational food and heightened wine list.. this hidden gem is well worth the mountain drive - the soulful hand selected local produce is delicately managed by the chef to create a 5 star menu..
Highlights have to be Tempura Prawns and pear salad (large portion) with lemon myrtle dressing..

We had visitors from Dallas visiting and what a fabulous day we all had at songbirds. From the moment we arrived we all felt relaxed and explored the stunning gardens. The nine of us returned to our lunch and dined on stunning food (Asian inspired) new menu and loved the selection. The service and friendly staff added to this sublime meal. Can not wait to return and my 7 American guests are still raving about this restaurant. Felt proud that we here on the Gold Coast can offer overseas visitors such a wonderful restaurant. Recommend this anytime but especially good when you have overseas visitors.

We were staying overnight and thought we might venture out but after the great lunch we returned for dinner and were very happy we did. The food was fresh, original and very well presented. The service was attentive and courteous and the ambiance just made the experience perfect. We will return

From the moment you park you feel a relaxed excellence. Walking through the forest into a calming sanctuary fine dining restaurant. The service is impeccable from the first greeting. The food... WOW!!! I loved it. If you enjoy high quality dining, amazing flavors and presentation, then this is the place to come. The meals are not massive, which allows you to comfortably order a entree, main and dessert. Best of all worlds. So romantic for a couples date. Luxurious family and friends outing. Please go here, you will love it.
