We have not been to Cuckoo Restaurant for over 10 years as there has been many more interesting restaurants opening up in Melbourne in the last decade. We weren't sure whether it was worth a visit after reading a number of less favourable reviews. However we were pleasantly surprised that the food variety and quality has significantly improved over the years. The entertainment remains as good as it had been and children were invited to participate in the music which was awesome. We found the staff very friendly and sensitive to our needs.
It can be pricey - $49 per adult plus drinks and $24.50 per child (age between 5 - 12yo). But if it's a for a special celebration, I think it's quite reasonable for a good night out. We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating a birthday there.
