The food was bang on, great menu to choose from and the service we could not fault, not a bad wine list either. Can't wait to go back for seconds

We had a wonderful time at Drift, and the food was amazing! The menu was new, and we chose to share a couple of dishes from the "small plate" menu, including the beef cheek, southern fried quail and mussels...They were all delicious :) Drift is perfect for families and our son loved playing on the lawn, he even made some...

Notwithstanding a website and an address published on it, this a difficult place to find. Located in a sporting complex on the beach, it is poorly signposted. The effort was only just worth it, with the seafood basket being acceptable but a bit expensive for cafe.

Everything was delicious. Apparently the menu had just been changed. Shared pizza bread and chose a beef cheek from a good list of "small" dishes. Really appreciate being able to choose a dish which you would normally expect to only be available as a main course. Comprehensive drinks selection. Staff were excellent. .. highly recommend

Excellent position overlooking Devonport's Bluff beach. Great coffee, with good food. Service is great. Great place to meet with friends for a relaxed get together.

We frequently visit Drift whether it's for a hot or cold beverage or a delicious meal. Service is always friendly, food is fresh and delicious at reasonable prices and it all comes with a beautiful view overlooking the beach. Highly recommend!

We've been here many times...it's often packed out so best to book ahead if you can....if you can't book ahead, aim to get there for an early meal rather than 'typical' times On various visits we've shared multiple entrees, had 3 courses or just had a burger. All have been very well prepared and delicious flavours. On sunny days there's... More

Popped into Drift with some friends and their children. The good points are a fantastic location even on a rainy day. The reason I'm not giving a one star rating is the initial waiter who took our orders was very attentive and helpful, just the other staff clearing the table failed to asked how the meals were. I've eaten at... More

You know when you have a terrible meal when you go to McDonalds afterwards and get a better meal. The venue is nice, clean & modern with great views of the beach and the river mouth. My parent and a I ordered from the large plate menu which read exceptional well. Our dishes arrived soon after ordering. I ordered the... More
