We wanted to try crocodile and kangaroo meat, and we found it ar KC's. The atmosphere is pictoresque: I felt I was going into a Pirates of the Caribbean movie. The food was nice, not much seasoned though. Nice cold beer!

While in Australia we wanted to try kangaroo steak and this place luckily had it in their menu. So we sat down for dinner and ordered kangaroo with mashed potatoes and the special of the day, a green curry with lamb meat. The kangaroo was cooked rare and tasted surprisingly good, a good sauce and tender meat. The curry wasn't... More

If you want somewhere with a great atmosphere then this is the place. If you want great food, great prices and great service look elsewhere. We gave up half our table to enable them to accommodate 2 others looking for a meal...they then took their order and didn't bother to come back to us till much later. We waited over... More

Just stopped in for a quick lunch. The food was amazing for what you pay. The meals were tasty and of a large size. Service was a little slow as they only had one person on drinks and the table service. Would defiantly go again.

The Service at this restaurant is good and there was live music. The dinner was ok,not really special and a little bit expensive for what you get.

When there for our last night in Airlie. Everything was good, the food was nice, probably a little expensive for what it was. The steak was very good quality but cooked poorly, the fat was not rendered. I usually like medium-rare, this was very much rare. It was good but for the price I would expect better cooking technique.

Thank Mitch N
