Came here for dinner on a Tuesday. It was very busy and I'd recommend making a reservation if you plan on going. Food was excellent. Would definitely come here again.

Our food came out so quickly that I think they knew what we wanted before we even walked in. My fiancé had the soup with garlic bread and loved every spoonful. I had the beef cheeks. Negatives first: it was a little old fashioned with the parsley sprinkled everywhere, lacked a little seasoning and the mash was a little bit... More

I give them one star because of their effort. The staff at least tried. However, the food was terrible! Both my partner and I were unable to eat our meals as they tasted terrible. They were also extremely expensive for what you got. $32 dollars for a chicken salad. Much better options elsewhere or stay home!!

Oh Dear, Never let the truth get in the way of a good review, FYI the price of your meal was $19 as can be verified by checking our menu online. The Thai chicken salad would possibly be not to your liking if you dislike fresh coriander fresh mint etc and the dressing which is house made from lemongrass ,sweet... More

My sister, father and I had dinner here and enjoyed every mouthful. We all ordered entree size for main as we had eaten a late lunch. The portions were very generous. I had panko crumbed prawns and dad and my sister had garlic prawn pasta. Both prawn dishes were delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful and meals arrived... More

I went here by myself. I had the spinach crepes and Thai Chicken salad. It was really good. The staff were lovely, gave good recommendations. Atmosphere was nice. Be prepared for one thing - and this may be an Australian way of doing things I wasn't aware of - you need to walk up to the bar to order your... More

The chef at Kookaburra offers an excellent choice of tasty and satisfying meals. My companion had a succulent calamari entree followed by a delicately spiced, slow-cooked beef cheek with creamy potato puree. I chose the chicken and leek soup of the day and the house specialty of roast duckling which certainly vindicated the menu advice that it was "worth waiting... More

I went here for dinner bymyself. Staff was very friendly and quick service. It was the best meal I had in grampians. I had their signature dish and tiramisu. Great ambience and lively place. Will recommend it highly.

Friendly pub atmosphere, nicely presented food, timely service and polite waitress, what more could you want? Oh yes, the food of course! Which was terrific we all four enjoyed our meals and came back the next night. Three of us ordered different meals and one couldn't go past the Veal Scallopine and ordered it again, best she's ever had!
