There is a letter in the window thanking everyone for their patronage but that they are now closed for good. It's a shame as this was such a unique place.

I've visited here a couple of times this year and have absolutely loved the food! Great atmosphere and plenty to choose on the menu. I took advance of the deal on having two courses - main and dessert. Cheesecake is out of this world! The fruity non-alcoholic coolers are lovely too, very refreshing! I've tried a few flavours and loved... More

I visited here with my best friend for a unique dining birthday experience because we thought it would be fun to try Kangaroo. Personally, I liked it a lot but it is an acquired taste and is a tad chewy. They also do really nice chips, side salad and chicken skewers!

A very good meal here last night with friendly and attentive service. We have been here on a number of occasions but I think last night was one of the best. I had the kangaroo steak and my husband had hake which was one of the nights specials. Both were excellent.

First time visiting in a long while and very impressed! The restaurant has a good balance of being fun whilst serving good quality food. Worth it to try something different! Such as kangaroo or crocodile! Worth it for a fun night out where you can have a decent meal that isn't pretentious.

Last weekend we arrived early at Mooba's for a pre cinema meal. We managed to fit in a starter and main, before leaving full and with no room for a desert. On arrival we advised of our time constraints and these were taken on board. The starters (chicken wings and salmon with salad) were big enough and fresh. The mains,... More

I love this place! Food is always top class! Great choice menu and great Cocktails too. Staff always very friendly and very helpful. Great place for young families early evening and a brilliant place for a meal and social meeting with friends at any time. Great aosphere! You just have to give it a try. 😁

I've been to Moomba a number of times and I will continue to do so- it's easily one of my favourites. The restaurant itself is decorated in subtle Aussie style, with wooden panelling, Ayers rock on the wall and a crocodile head model on the bar etc- its lovely in the summer as it has a very open airy feel...

We hadn't been here for a while but a new summer menu enticed my wife and I back for a mid-week treat. I made my reservation for the evening over the phone, no one answered so I left my booking on their answer machine. They soon rang back to confirm the booking as their answer machine message had promised. The... More
