“Try the pizza.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I have only been here once, but it was good, everyone was happy with their meals. It is a little expensive though and differently set out with lots of small rooms to dine in.

“Such a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Wonderful wonderful location, and the quaint exterior facade takes one right back to the days of the local milk bar in the 1950s. Great food and wonderful staff.

“Great time with my friends!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I've been visiting Kookaburra cafe for the last couple of months and I have to say: I simply love it! Great space for functions, specially for bdays. I recently had a party over there with my friends and we all loved the food. Staff were attentive and quickly they brought cocktails to our table. Pasta servings are very reasonable for its price, veal Tortellini and Bacon, Banana and Chilli it's a must try!

I would definitely come back and try the gigantic Party Pizza!

“Nice large patio, average over-salty pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Right in the center of the renowned (and ever revolving) shopping strip of Paddington, this Cafe seems to have stood the test of time. Nice large patio that's perfect for large groups. We've been a couple of times and found their pizza (the specialty) rather average and over-salty.
