“Best Meal Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Had the most amazing meal tonight at Mimi's. Cuisine you do not expect to find in the bush! Staff were on the ball and extremely polite - thanks Paul.
Would absolutely recommend this restaurant as a 'Must' during your stay at Cooinda Lodge.

“Dine in air conditioned comfort in Kakadu!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Mimi's was recommended to us by a friend and has a nice atmosphere, great service and delicious food; we can definitely recommend the kangaroo fillet and the barramundi and the service was very good, even on a busy night. Meals are more expensive than the bar menu, but well worth the extra few dollars and we spent a very enjoyable evening there. The restaurant can get busy so be sure to book ahead to avoid disappointment.

“What a surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

Excellent diner : kangoroo loin wrapped in bacon was very well cooked (bloody like I love it) with small vegetables ( beetroot, carrot...) and a very good juice. Baramundi, taken by my wife, was also very well cooked and tasty. Chocolate fondant as dessert was creamy inside and very tasty.
Service was good
Really a not to miss restaurant in kakadu NP

“Amazing food in Kakadu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

My wife & I recently dined at Mimis restaurant on our trip to Kakadu. On visits to Cooinda in the past the restaurant was always closed so we where happy to have a alternative option to the pub food in the bistro. The setting is pleasant & in keeping with the location of the restaurant with local aboriginal art displayed. The food was excellent, we where truly surprised at the standard & quality of the menu, we did not expect to find a meal of this quality in Kakadu. I had the steak & my wife the Barramundi, both meals where cooked perfectly & am am fussy about my steaks. Presentation was top notch, we finished the meal with a burlee that was one of the best I have had. We will defiantly be returning on our next trip.
