Staff friendly but service poor. Had to send soup to be reheated twice, however soup was tasty. Don't feel like getting back here.

We lunched here after touring Birds of Eden. They had several sandwich offerings. We both had tomato toasties; they were freshly made and very good.

We only wanted a snack so the choice on the menu was very limited for us. The food was tasty and portions were large but it took an age to arrive. Nice views of bird life from the tables but if you have time restrictions...as we did, maybe give it a miss.More

Very tasty food. My husband enjoyed his burger, my sister-in-law said sweet potato chips were the best she had ever tasted. My roast vegetable panini was delicious.

I had a good burger with bacon and cheese, and chips. Unfortunately, service was extremely slow, even that the place was not full with customers. I wish I could spend the time instead with the birds...

We made a day trip to Monkey land, Bird of Eden and Jukani. (Making use of the Entertainer to get a half price deal, for all three visits.) We were six adults. Most of us agreed that we would have loved to spend more time...at Birds of Eden. Almost at the end of the walk through the Bird statuary is this little café, looking out over the pond. While you wait you can still watch the birds. Very friendly staff and the serves was prompt. They have surprisingly an extensive menu. The prices however was on the very high side!More

Stopped for a quick drink on our wander through the bird sanctuary and found a delightful team who welcomed us warmly and brought our drinks without delay. Surrounded by the birds (outside of the fine netting in which the humans are enclosed!) it was a...lovely interlude. The service was attentive and pleasant, the coffee and wine was excellent quality and we wish the team all the best of the future...More

Once you are done in the bird park you walk right by this little cafe. It is a good place to get a cold drink like we did. Wish I'd been hungry enough to sample the scrumptious sounding cakes they had. You can also get...a meal. The dining area looks out on the pond where you can watch birds as you eat.More

We had a light lunch which was tasty and served quickly by friendly staff. The view over one of the ponds was fascinating and we were able to continue watching the birds...scarlet ibis, weaver birds, egrets, spoonbills......the list goes on! The cafe also has free...wi-fi. After eating we were able to go back into the reserve for the afternoon.More

The perfect ending to our birds of Eden visit. We got soaked while we were there on a very rainy day. We got given blankets to stay warm. Enjoyed some lovely cakes and scones.

Really good food and great service! It can get a bit cold as you are overlooking a pond, so take something warm with. The views and sounds with all the birds makes this is great stop-over before heading out of the park.
