Excellent position overlooking Devonport's Bluff beach. Great coffee, with good food. Service is great. Great place to meet with friends for a relaxed get together.

We frequently visit Drift whether it's for a hot or cold beverage or a delicious meal. Service is always friendly, food is fresh and delicious at reasonable prices and it all comes with a beautiful view overlooking the beach. Highly recommend!

We've been here many times...it's often packed out so best to book ahead if you can....if you can't book ahead, aim to get there for an early meal rather than 'typical' times On various visits we've shared multiple entrees, had 3 courses or just had a burger. All have been very well prepared and delicious flavours. On sunny days there's... More

Popped into Drift with some friends and their children. The good points are a fantastic location even on a rainy day. The reason I'm not giving a one star rating is the initial waiter who took our orders was very attentive and helpful, just the other staff clearing the table failed to asked how the meals were. I've eaten at... More

My parent and a I ordered from the large plate menu which read exceptional well. Our dishes arrived soon after ordering. I ordered the... More

Lovely setting overlooking the beach. Busy restaurant but staff were friendly and attentive. Large and interesting menu. A few of us had the veal main course, served with a fresh tomato & sun dried tomato sauce. Tasty & well presented dish. A couple of others had the steak & eggs. Nice dish but lacked the presence of a sauce. The... More

We popped in for a light lunch with the kids. We enjoyed some cheeseburger sliders and Drift burger with chips. This was plenty for the 5 of us. Amazing views of the beach. Service was fabulous. Very impressed. Kids menu available but a little pricey at $17 (includes a Gelato). Colouring in for kids kept them entertained.

Ordered the Seafood plate for two. Every single element on the plate was delicious. Crumbed fish, oysters, calamari, soft shelled crab, scallops, smoked salmon all beautiful. Along with the... More
