Our History

 Birdies restaurant has been in the Colthup family since November 1993, when Philip and Sue began running the restaurant after their careers as highly qualified chefs in London and New York City.


Their passion and love for French cuisine is showcased in the restaurants unique atmosphere  and exquisite menu, serving traditional French dishes, local seafood and Birdies classics.
