Four of us enjoyed a long lovely Sunday lunch at Songbirds. Happily, we each choose different dishes for each of the three courses, and we each tried each other's food so I can fairly safely say that anything you order from Songbirds will be delicious. That said, there were highlights - the rabbit was the best dish of the day,... More

As you drive into Songbirds, you will be amazed at the serenity, peace and totally beautiful ambiance of this most famous eatery. The staff, as always, most welcoming and as you sit in the bush style setting you may enjoy the music of the bird songs during the day or the intriguing bush night calls at night. But now, to...

This is a fantastic restaurant set in an amazing area of Mt Tambourine. I have stayed at the cabins a number of times and have had the pleasure of eating here more times than I can count. On each trip up I have had the set menu and always been very pleased with it. If you are staying here though... More

Songbirds is romantically tucked into the rainforest of Tambourine Mountain. The name of the restaurant used to be justified by the many exotic birds that flew around the greens surrounding the terrace, with Kookaburras occasionally coming to the table, to steal a steak. This is not so much the case anymore. We saw two Kookaburras and two beautiful parrots but... More

A peaceful and tranqul setting on a beautiful property, well named for the birds song. Food was delicious and the service excellent. Beautiful gardens to wander around with sculptures and wildlife, highly recommend this restaurant.

Place is stunning, very Bali themed. Food is Devine, very fine dining. Shiraz, absolutely great! Price though, a little expensive for what it is. I respect weekends are a little more, but when I've been quoted a price, but then later advised I have to pay a further $140, not that happy.. Staff don't really know how to smile, they're... More

I arranged lunch at Songbirds for a group of thirty two people last Sunday. During the lead up to the day the chef and staff were very helpful in choosing a four course shared menu paying particular attention to the special dietary requirements of several of our members. It was a wonderful lunch, the food was superb and the setting... More

We tend to be harsh and unforgiving diners, but this was simply a delicious, faultless, and excellent value experience. Staff were amenable to our messing with the set courses (we're only tiny eaters), and every morsel was memorable. We chose the quail egg with asparagus, soft shell crab (the best I've had), chicken confit, and salt bush lamb, all of... More

My partner and I were deciding between having either a cheap and cheery dinner, or something special. Luckily something special at Songbirds won out. The restaurant exudes comfortable chic. It sits nestled in a garden paradise with generously spaced tables, fine white linen set with gleaming cutlery and wine glasses. Over a nice glass of bubbles we perused the menu.... More

Well ... there's the tranquil sculpture gardens which is great to wander through between courses of totally divine offerings from the kitchen ... this place has got everything ... except windows ... which allows the garden and it's inhabitants to mingle with the guests ... but really it's the food that you come for ... the menu is well balanced...
