There was 6 of us dining here for lunch and 2 out of the 6 meals were good. 2 of the Caesar salads didn't come with bacon, even though the menu said it did, yet it came with olives? Both the salt and pepper calamari were definitely frozen as it had the worst taste possible. the parmigiana on the other... More

Very friendly and helpful staff who worked willingly around my food intolerances. We both had the Roo and Croc combo, which was amazing. Followed by the chocolate cake and plum pudding for dessert. The service was quick, attentive and consistently fabulous. Prices were very good too. We would highly recommend KC's.

The misses and I brought a meal for dinner. She had the reef and beef and I had 500g porterhouse. The porterhouse was fantastic and the reef beef was a little undercook but all in all amazing taste. Tip: don't sit too close too live music speakers are very loud but great tunes.

I ordered medium rare and it came out well and truly rare which really isnt a bother for me as kangaroo is generally more flavoursome when rare so i didnt make a fuss. I did tell one of the... More
