Yesterday we again had an awesome time by this outdoor restaurant. I decided to try their Sunday buffet and what a good choice. Fantastic chicken pie, leg of lam, gammon, calamari with vegetables etc well prepared by chef Benson followed by decadent puddings. Excellent service from our waitron Maddy and manager Rodney. What more could we ask for 😊

What a lovely restaurant in the hart of Parklands ... a pond with ducks and chickens running around. Playing space for children. Excellent food plus friendly waiters enjoying to serve the well prepared dishes. The menu offers a nice variety of dishes. Will definitely visit again. Good value for money.

I took my grandchild to Driftwood for a Sunday afternoon. It was not that busy as I thought. The kids played around the pond and on the jumping castle. The service was good as normal. A great venue just to sit relax and let the kids play.

Wheelchair accessibility only extends to the paving, not the tables ... food is excellent though BUT some of the waiters need to adopt the art of actually being courteous when necessary instead of faking it for a tip ... at least I thought he was faking it until I saw the bill. Our waiter on Saturday was very nice BUT... More

Our choice of meals for lunch was very limited but the meal itself was well presented and very delicious. Our meal included a glass of... More
