We arrived at the Bistro as an option to our hotel restaurant. First thing for travellers is if its busy you get asked if you booked a table, which we hadn't. So future eaters need to book. We did get a table and the food was very good, the drink was very good and got us in the mood for... More

Nice service. Somehow need to work on their door system so not quite as many flies can enter the dining room. Haven't eaten with so many flies in a dining room before. Food was good, varied menu. The environment was quiet easy to have table conversation. A little pricey for pub fare but the family enjoyed it. Loved the ice... More

A great place to stop over when driving thru Halls Gap. Friendly staff & quiet atmosphere. Menu prices a bit high but all the same delicious.

A great pub, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff, we had dinner there, the food was great but a tad pricey, $38 for a pub steak is Sydney prices.

Four of us enjoyed our meals at the Kookaburra. We all had something different and we were all happy with our choices. Meal sizes were very generous. They aren't cheap but not what I would call expensive. I put them in the higher end price for a very good pub meal (around $30). We also had a bottle of local... More

Visited this bistro, and was looking at the menu in the glass case on the wall. The owner was outside cleaning up the patio tiles from the rain. She told us it was advisable to make a booking as they were filling up fast. We made a booking for 6.30pm. Later when we came down the bistro, we were greeted... More

First review and decided to do so as wasn't sure what to expect from this place but I was pleasently surprized when I arrived. I enjoyed my meal greatly. A pub meal with flair! Would come here again and will recommend to my friends.

As an extended family group the staff tried hard to find a table to suit us although we hadn't booked nd it was quite busy. We were very happy with the bistro (eat & drink and pay later) arrangements as we regularly went back for more drinks. The food was tasty but (in comparison to Melbourne) a little high priced..

Where do you go when you cant decide between fine dining or a pub meal in the middle of the bush. The Kookaburra of course. Gorgeous place with super friendly attentive staff. We chose homemade asparagus soup, delicious, just like oma used to make in Europe, followed by two Italian dishes, duck risotto & ragout, both were delicious, showing off... More
