THE VENUE WAS FANTASTIC
“The venue was fantastic and I will be recommending it to anyone who has a function, staff were AMAZING! Everything from Video screens, spotify access to play the playlists I had set up, microphone and cake stand were exactly as we discussed and so easy to set up. I have had many compliments on the delicious food as well as the decor. Everything was brilliant!!“
EXCEEDING EVERY EXPECTATION
“Thank you so much for the amazing celebration on Saturday. It was the best celebration, exceeding every expectation and imagination I had. All the guests said the exact same thing!”
THE PLACE LOOKED BEAUTIFUL
“I had the best time, you guys were so great! I was expecting to come in to help set up, but the place looked beautiful when I walked in! I will definitely be recommending you guys to my friends.”
“THANK YOU so much for your incredible hospitality. The night was fabulous and we couldn’t fault it. Everyone raved about the food and we couldn’t be happier.
We look forward to coming back soon.
And thank you for the bottle of Moet. We can’t wait to enjoy it.”
YOUR STAFF AND FOOD WERE EXCELLENT!
“We were very happy with Matt’s party on Friday. It’s a great venue and many people commented that having the big outdoor courtyard was a big plus and the giant jenga is also a fun addition. Both your staff and the food were excellent. We will be very happy to recommend the Birdcage as a great party venue and will certainly be keen to use it again when the opportunity arises.”

Everything went better than we expected so thank you for having us and we wish you all the best during this hard financial year.”
Alanis & Felix
ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE ALL ROUND!
“Thanks for being a great host and making it a pleasant and enjoyable experience all round. Our friends and family had a great time and we appreciate you accommodating us for this special event. Yes, a lot of sore heads and tired girls today.
Your team on the night were excellent and very friendly to deal with.”
STAFF WERE SO FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL
“Many thanks for a wonderful night at the Birdcage on Saturday night! Please pass on our thanks to your fantastic team, the staff were so friendly & helpful & everyone enjoyed the food. Much appreciated all your help with hosting. We look forward to returning.”
THE FOOD WAS PERFECT
“I am truly thankful for all that you and your team did for us last night.
The food was perfect, which honestly means a lot when it’s coming from a pacific island person because, the food not only was delicious, but the portion and presentation was just as perfect. The portions managed to fill everyone up which led to unfinished desserts. And unfinished food saved to takeaway, for pacific people, means a massive job well done.”
Allanah – October 2020
“I wanted to say thank you so much for an incredible night on the weekend! Everyone was raving about the venue and the amazing food. We had such a great time and I can’t wait to head to the Birdcage again sometime soon.”
“On behalf of my family, friends & I we’d like to thank you & your team for awesome service on the night of my 21st and leading up to it! We got a lot of positive feedback about the food, the venue, the staff, the drinks & also a few inquiries about hiring the venue for functions (which we’ve passed your detail on to them)!
It definitely was a night to remember. Thank you for being an awesome host & for keeping communication open when we needed clarification. Wishing you and the staff all the best during these odd times, and we hope to be back again in the near future!”
“Thank you so much for hosting my son, Qwan’s 21st. Everything on the night was perfect & went to plan from the moment we arrived to set-up right to the end of the night. All our guests had an amazing time and commented all night on how great the venue & food was. Sadly I was too slow to try the prawns (apparently they were the stars along with the spicy chicken I was told).
James & I agreed that it was a huge success, mainly because of “you” 🙂 how attentive & informative you were, your guidance and sharing your knowledge/experience with us on how previous functions went, as well as keeping us updated throughout the night with the staggered timing of the food, bar tab, order of events, staff – everything! I know all of this must just be 2nd nature & all part of the job for you, however, we are thankful & very appreciative of how you made everything so easy for us which helped in making our night go smoothly & stress free too”.
Trish & James – December 2020
“The service, food and facilities were all absolutely incredible! Everyone has said they had a great night and loved the food. In particular, it was so nice to have the sit down dinner outside!
Thank you so much for all your help with making our Christmas party so successful :)”
“Just a quick note from me to express how happy we were with how Libby’s 21st evening went. We had a great night. We really appreciated your experience and guidance in the lead up to the night. This helped us immensely and relieved some of the stress associated with organising the night. You and your team’s communication and willingness to help us has been faultless. Please pass on our thanks to your team. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to others.”
AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!
“Mitchell and I also wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for making our night so special. From the amazing customer service to the delicious food and all the drinks, you were all fantastic and everyone loved the night – so much that mum and dad said they are going to book you for their 40th Wedding Anniversary later in the year.”
THE NIGHT WAS FABULOUS WE COULDN'T FAULT IT
“THANK YOU so much for your incredible hospitality. The night was fabulous and we couldn’t fault it.
Everyone raved about the food and we couldn’t be happier.
We look forward to coming back soon. And thank you for the bottle of Moet. We can’t wait to enjoy it.”
BEST GLUTEN FREE PIZZAS MY COELIAC FRIENDS HAVE EVER HAD
“We had a great time, thank you so much. I heard the food was amazing, although for some reason I only managed to have one piece of Calamari! My own fault entirely, I was just too busy talking when the platters came around!! My Coeliac friends specifically asked me to tell you that the pizza was one of the best GF pizza’s they’ve had – they said it was superb. I’ve had nothing but rave reviews of the food and the venue – and we all had a wonderful night.
So thank you to you and to all your team for making it such a success and for making the organisation of it such a breeze.
I will definitely be recommending you to anyone looking for a venue, and I know my friends would too. And we’ll be back before too long because I understand the prawns in particular were superb, and I missed out!!”
“Many thanks to you and your staff for an excellent night on Friday. Everyone commented on what a great venue it was. One of my mates now wants to host his son, Josh’s 21st there so expect a call. After posting photos on Facebook I had one of my friends tell me that he has booked his daughter’s 21st there in November and wanted to know what it was like. So I gave you guys a great review.
I’m going to talk to my work’s social club about hosting a night there. It couldn’t have gone better.”
THANKS FOR BEING SUCH A PROFESSIONAL HOST
EVERYTHING WENT PERFECTLY
YOU TOOK ALL THE STRESS OUT OF IT FOR ME
EVERYTHING WENT LIKE CLOCKWORK
“Thank you for a wonderful evening yesterday. Everything went like clockwork, PA system worked well, Spotify easily provided our own playlist, friendly service at the bar and the food served in good time. We’ve had nothing but very complimentary feedback from our guests who enjoyed the food and venue tremendously.”
THE BEST 21ST VENUE I'VE BEEN TO
“I had much feedback on how amazing the food was and how great the venue was, I had a friend say “that’s the best 21st venue I’ve been to so far” so everyone was definitely impressed including myself and my family! I found your service was very accomodating from the first venue viewing to actually making my vision come alive.”
SUPER LOW STRESS FOR US
“We had a brilliant night and it was really very near perfect. You guys handled everything so well and we really appreciated the staff, food and how everything was so well organised and prepared. Super low fuss for us and no stress so thanks to you and the team for making it a great night!”
LOCATION, FOOD, ATMOSPHERE, LAYOUT PERFECT!
“On behalf of my family and I, we would like to thank you and your staff for your amazing service on Saturday. Everything ran perfectly and everyone enjoyed their night and a lot of that is thanks to you. The location, food, atmosphere and layout of the tavern was perfect!!!”
YOU WERE INCREDIBLY ACCOMMODATING
“The only comments I have are that you were amazing. Our group was a lot and so a huge thank you to you and your team for putting up with all of us for the night. Comms was super clear, you were incredibly accommodating for all the chopping and changing from our end, having spotify available was awesome and the food was great! We will definitely be back for future events.”
“We all had a fantastic evening. The food was great, the staff were incredible and everything went off really, really well!!!! Thank you so much to you and your team!! The junior docs are still talking about it! See you again in Jan 2023!!”
EVERYONE COMMENTED ON YOUR DECORATIONS
“Thank you very much for hosting our engagement party on Friday evening. We had a great time and your hosting, catering, and ambiance were fantastic. Everyone commented on your decorations and how great the food was. We really appreciate your work and will be recommending you to everyone!”
MAKES PLANNING AN EVENT LESS STRESSFUL
“We celebrated my husband’s 40th at Birdcage Tavern. From the moment I walked in, I was blown away how beautiful the venue looked. The guests were raving about food and how spectacular the venue looked. The service from the staff was top notch and Phil was very accommodating to each and every request which makes planning an event less stressful. If you’re thinking of hosting your event at Birdcage, do it, you won’t regret it.”
EVERYONE WAS IN AWE OF THE NIGHT
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you & your team for a fantastic night. Your team was incredibly customer focused & nothing was too much for them to assist us with. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you. All guests were very impressed with the venue & menu & each had wonderful experiences with your team. Everyone there was in awe of the night.”
Rach – March 2022
LOVED THE DECORATIONS
“You and the team did such a splendid job and I could not fault a thing. The venue is such a handy central location with tonnes of free parking on site. I loved the decorations, we really didn’t need to do anything ourselves. The function room was the perfect fit for the crowd we had and it so great to have all the little extras (table linen, mic, sound system, projectors) with no hidden extra hire charges. The staff were so friendly & accommodating. The food was delicious and portions so generous.”
Zoe, Jeff & Cerhys – March 2022
THE PLACE WAS SET UP AMAZINGLY
“Many thanks to you and your team for creating a memorable evening for our daughter, Joanna’s 21st celebration on Saturday. The place was set up amazingly, it looked fantastic. The team was so helpful, efficient, friendly and organised everything perfectly. The food was delicious and well timed, very impressive. We received so many positive comments from our guests regarding the staff, the venue and the food.”
