We walked in at 6pm without a booking and were very lucky to get a table as we could overhear wait staff having to turn people away not long after. Food was delicious, we had a garlic bread for entree and my husband had the steak with red wine sauce and I the duck risotto - yummy!!! Our 3 1/2... More

I went to the kookaburra Hotel with a few friends, after a day out at Grape Grazing Festival. We all agreed it was one of the best meals around. I had the Kangaroo and it was very tasty, a good portion and lovely sides. The wine list is very reasonable too. We saw Matt Preston dining here while we were... More

Had dinner here one night during our trip to the Grampians and went another night just for drinks. Very friendly restaurant/bar. Food was excellent and service professional, but friendly also. Well worth a visit.

Incredibly rude service on the telephone - have never had reception like it when trying to book a table anywhere. Will now go elsewhere due to the lack of customer service.

Hi, My husband and I recently traveled to Halls Gap Victoria. We were referred to the Kookaburra Restaurant by family. We loved it so much, we went back the next night! Staff were very helpful and friendly and whilst not 'hovering' were prompt in service. The fire was very welcome and they had several areas that were available. Tables were... More
