Very rude and unhelpful staff in barra bar. Waitress was rude after she got our order incorrect then wanted us to pay for her error. Very disappointed. Paid top price for accommodation.

Chips were undercooked and almost inedible. Angus burger was lacking flavour. A steak that was ordered medium rare was rare to blue. The chicken burger was ok except the chicken breast was tough and dry. Definitely not worth the prices we paid but with no other option when you're hungry you have to.

This is the best value and best quality food we have experienced so far. Burgers were really good and unlike other places in Jabiru, it didn't cost an arm and a leg. Relaxed outdoor eating. Friendly service. Made use of the beautiful pool after our dinner. Lovely spot.

Cooinda Lodge is great, the Barra Bar and Bistro do simple but tasty meals. They also have a buffet lunch on offer which is great value. There is also a lovely resort pool which is a must in the NT weather!! Love this place.

You couldn't be blamed for thinking that if a restaurant was the only one for 60kms that the quality or service mightn't be up to standard... but in the case of the Barra Bar and Bistro, you would be wrong. I know I was. My partner said she had the best beef burger in a long time, and my steak... More

We weren't expecting much as rooms are tired but food was fabulous both for dinner and breakfast. Small selection of meals but very tasty and diverse enough to eat for a few nights running. Great food!

Good if you like outdoor / alfresco drinks and eating, with gardens near and pool adjacent, overhead fans. Has a tropical feel which might be a bit warm for some. Food is average quality pub style, order at the bar and collect when buzzed, no table service.

Reasonably priced. We had an excellent platter of kangaroo, crocodile and buffalo sausages. Great to try local food. There is also food available for less adventurist people.

After a day of exploring Kakadu and on our way back up tour accommodation in Jabiru, our bellies were rumbling as we approached Cooinda Resort/Lodge and so we pulled in to fill up on whatever nosh they offered. We all went with the fish and chips, the service was good, the food came out fast, fresh and hot and although... More

Toilets full of faeces and unable to flush. Toilet water? all over cubicle floor. Staff member informed but nothing done. Salad soggy and mouldy. Drunken staff members using golf buggy entertainment for themselves. Terrible!
