Lovely Surprise

Didn't expect much from the outside, but found it hard to find a place open on a Sunday Night, Great atmosphere with a nice warm fire friendly staff. We both had rack of lamb which was cooked to perfection. Affrogato was a great choice for a sweet as was the apple crepe.

We dined there last night, on a cold late winter night, and the atmosphere was welcoming and warm, with wood fires burning at each end of the restaurant. The staff were friendly, attentive and happy to chat. The food was delicious and the beer went down very well. The flowers/gum leaves on the tables were a brilliant touch, bringing the... More

We had a great dinner at this hotel, didn't look to good from the outside and we were pleasantly surprised inside. We had lamb racks and veg. They were all cooked to perfection, then I had sticky date pudding and hubby had Apple crepes both were delicious. Food was excellent, service was excellent and ambiance was great.

After travelling for a number of days on our Victorian family holiday, The Kookaburra Hotel is definitely the best place we have eaten at in this state! The food is delicious and the prices very reasonable! The staff are super friendly and the addition of two wood fires create the perfect atmosphere!

We had lunch at the kookaburra after a few hours walking through the Grampians! The food was delicious and reasonably priced. I love the cosy atmosphere and the friendly staff! Worth the stop if you're in the area.

Once or twice a year we make a trip to the wonderful Grampians. On the last 2 visits we have dined at the Kookaburra four times. On each and every occasion the food and wines from the local area have been simply fantastic. We will be back Kookaburra!

We had diner at the Kookaburra. The food was good, staff really friendly BUT it's really too expensive. Especially for the size of the dishes. It's such a pitty to have such small portions for this price.
