We are here a couple of years ago and since that visit this place has gone downhill. Our chips were undercooked and cold, when I ordered an iced chocolate my daughter ended up with a iced mocha full of ice blocks, my iced coffee was full cream milk and not the skinny milk I ordered, their main serve of prawns...

Firstly what Travis has done with Koukla is fantastic! Congratulations on hiring staff such as Vince and Long who are so attentive and remember what you order each time you come in, it really is our 'local' again. We love it for their coffees, the ambiance and Travis always takes the time to acknowledge you are there, so well done!... More

My wife and I were on a day trip and dropped in for a late breakfast. The menu was as you would expect, a little something for everyone. Service was great and with a smile and the corner location at the top of the main street was a great starting point. The food was fine, nothing special but tasty none... More

Whilst on a recent holiday to Daylesford we went to Koukla twice. Staff were friendly & the place was buzzing. This restaurant is one of the few in the town that stays open in the evenings & easily attracts business. On the first visit Pizza was ordered & enjoyed. The second time the Burger was very good. The tables are... More

This place is in a good location, but sadly they fail on every other level. Food is very average (tasteless and oily). The service is shocking, waiters are inattentive.. Plenty of other better options close by - don't waste your money here!

Actually all of the food on their menu is very good but for desert you must have the limoncello curd. This is a great little cafe were we found ourselves returning for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff are great and genuinely desire to see all customers walk away happy.

We arrived in Daylesford for dinner on 2nd January, which was deemed a public holiday, to find most restaurants closed. Pretty poor form for a Christmas holiday destination. Koukla was open so we really had no choice but to eat here. Daughter and I ordered lamb kofta ($26 each), hubby ordered fish & chips ($25) son ordered chilli calamari ($21).... More

PetalMelbourne, Thanks for your taking the time to post your review. We do not simply arrive at a random price for our menu items, we take into consideration a number of things, those being food and beverage costs, labour and overheads. We clearly specify the 15% surcharge on public holidays on both our menus and at the counter, perhaps you... More

Koukla cafe & pizzeria is the one with the vine draped verandah a the top of Daylesford's main street - Vincent Street. We chose it for its verandah and sat at the bench overlooking the roundabout. It was early evening and while the staff had clearly been run off their feet that day with the consequence of some unhappy altercations... More

The casual vibe of Cafe Koukla reflects the very essence of Daylesford. Pull up a chair by the fireside or peek into the enormous wood fired oven to witness the emergence of a myriad of culinary delights. Linger over a long lunch or sit on the street to relax and watch the local life slide by. Enjoy a coffee and a sweet treat or indulge in a glass of wine and make your choice from our casual dining menu. The ever evolving menu reflects the finest regional offerings in comfortable, casual simplicity. The wood fire pizza oven produces what is undoubtedly some of the best pizza in regional Victoria.
