Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Songbird’s restaurant nestled in Songbird’s Rainforest Retreat and Spa is a lovey rustic fine dining experience that won’t disappoint. The waitress is friendly and accommodating, the chef and kitchen hand are very friendly and offer a good chat. The chef makes the rounds to each...table and has a chat about the food she’s prepared which is a dedicated old fashion service which is these days uncommon but still well sought after in the foody community. What we ordered: Entree - cheesy garlic bread Mains - Rib loin steak with roast potato and seasoned greens and hubby had salt and pepper calamari with chips and salad. Dessert - homemade cheesecake of the week - passionfruit!!! The cheesy garlic bread was well balanced with creamy camembert grilled and finished with a drizzle of balsamic glaze and a pinch of bagle seasoning on top as garnish. Was delicious and a great way to start off our dinner experience. My steak was amazing, mouth watering and cooked to perfection and was the star of the dinner in my opinion. Chef chargrilled the steak with care, and the fat rendered to perfection. Every bite was absolutely delicious. Very good price for well cooked grass fed locally sourced beef. My hubbys calamari was soft and also cooked to perfection… just right! The homemade slaw was surprisingly tasty with bits of bacon and sweet corn added to entice very forkful. The desert was a show stopper. Chefs curative sugar work was delightfully moreish. The creamy texture of the cheesecake was well balanced with passionfruit curd and then constructed with a few crunch elements such as lady finger sponges and meringue and sugar pearls, all of which made a lovely bed for the cheesecake to sit on. And the cheesecake was also a very generous size. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The restaurant itself was a quiet and peaceful setting. All in all, hubby and I weren’t disappointed considering our high expectations of food. The meals were absolutely well priced, the portions were very generous and the staff were all round pleasant and friendly. Can’t fault the customer service or the food. Great space for events and from what we were told are very accommodating to your needs. Would recommend you book the rainforest retreat accommodation and stay in a hut and also make a dinner reservation for yourself if heading this way to truely embrace and emerse yourself in the whole tranquil, relaxing experience that is Songbirds.More

I try not to post too much as I don’t like crowded restaurants but have come home and want this one to be around when I am back for good!! If you want a ‘Dinkey Di’ chef - Deb is it, with all that means!!...Her hands and culinary delights however are not from Oz, but from heaven!! Her seafood chowder and brisket were to die for!! Have not enjoyed a foodie journey so much in years and we are regular restaurant go-ers. Going to try for another reservation tomorrow as we are only on the mountain for 2 nights🤞More

Songbirds is a great rainforest location. Combine that with a delightful, informative chef and you have a lunch to die for. Not often that the chef greets you, entertains and cooks delicious meals. Put thus on your bucket list

Our experience at this restaurant was nothing short of fabulous. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and created a very memorable experience for us. The food was amazing and presented beautifully. We dine out a lot during our travels but never have we encountered staff...who engage so freely, explain each dish that is prepared and make you feel like you are there to be truly spoilt by their creations. Well done!!! Massive applaud.More

Professional service! Chef was just the nicest guy with a fabulous sense of humour not to mention a fabulous cook! Seafood chowder was to die for. Seriously mouthwatering and the flavours took us away! The prawn pasta was just as delicious! Oooh the dessert chef...was so lovely and so passionate about her cheesecake and pouched pears. We understand why… they were just divine with a touch of toffee and the garnishes were an added touch of perfection. The Atmosphere was warming and friendly and the staff looked after us so well. We had the best night and can’t wait to visit again.More

We stayed at the resort and went to the restaurants both nights. We decided to try lots of entrées so as to have a range of dishes. The range was great and all meals were delicious. I particular enjoyed the beef, sadly they sold old...the second night. The duck and chicken were very good too. The young waitress was very friendly and the food came out quite quickly- very good service. A limited wine range but we found a bottle which we enjoyed. The fact we went back there the second night shows how happy we were with the food.More

Enjoyed our dinner at Songbirds restaurant. There was only one service staff at the restaurant but she was both efficient and pleasant. The menu is limited but what was presented on the plate was delicious. My husband had a fish dish and the fish was...perfectly cooked. I had a salad( there are hardly any vegetarian options on the menu).The salad had fresh and interesting ingredients like the garlic flowers. The ambience is nice and I imagine, it would have been even cosier on a cold winter day with the heaters running. My only criticism is that the vegan/vegetarians have not been catered to in the menu choices offered.More

We enjoyed the 4 course degustation with wine paring. The food presentation was exquisite and tasted amazing. We found the service was attentive and friendly. We certainly would come back again and would try the 6 course one.
