The decor makes you feel like you're in a tin hut in the outback yet is cosy & comfortable at the same time. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and attentive at all times. I had the barramundi fish... More

Wouldn't go anywhere else for a good steak ostridge kangaroo you name it they do it and to perfection .The service is exellent too. It's so popular you need to book a week in advance as it gets very busy. We will be going back there in November and I'm having the 12 Oz rump and that's just for starters.

My overall approach to tripadvisor has always been, whenever awarding a rating, that it has to be relative to actual pounds shelled out, common sense weighed expect reasonable expectations and cost.

Really enjoyed our meal here. Steak cooked as we'd asked for which was 'blue'. Liked the option of having a jacket potato in place of chips. Excellent service. Would go again.

Popped in for a meal on 16/9/15. Opens at 1800hrs. Very friendly and polite staff. Very good choice of starters, mains and puds. Massive portions, reasonably priced will definitely return. Booking is advised as it started to fill up within an hour of opening. The only very minor moan I have is that I could only see one table set... More

Another gem of a restaurant in Saundersfoot, my wife had the minted lamb and I went for the rib-eye steak, it was without question the best steak I've had in a very long time.

We go in the Kookaba whenever we can, although sometimes you need to book well in advance to get in. Food delicious and service really great. Good value pricing.
