Nothing particularly special here. After reading replies to reviews on Trip Advisor, i am a little terrified of the owner. The food was... okay. Very very pricey for okay-ish pub quality food and relatively small serves. I've read the owner justifying the prices by saying they offer 'table service'. I'm not sure how ordering and paying at the bar constitutes... More

No question about the quality of the food. It was excellent. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was that it was a little more expensive than it should be for a pub. The service was excellent. I would recommend eating at the Kookaburra Hotel but don't be surprised by the cost.

We ate here as a family of 6, very good quality food, very generous portions, warm ambiance on a cold stormy night. Service was friendly and prompt, yes the meals are not served quick but when food is very obviously served fresh I would expect no other. Prices over all are a little pricey if you choose streak etc (but... More

There is a cut above on the usual suspects on the menu- nothing dramatic but well cooked and the atmosphere is surprisingly welcoming and buzzy- a lot of happy people and a tribute that good wait staff and chefs are engaged. Not easy and much aprpeciated!

Chose to eat two nights in a row here, the first meal there was so good. Friendly efficient staff, well served drinks and meals. Returned the next night with the family ( extra 4) and were not disappointed. Tip; make a booking as the Kookaburra Hotel is very popular.

We spent two nights in Halls Gap in the middle of their storms. We ate here on two nights and enjoyed the food and the service. We did not expect this level of food in the middle of the Grampians, but that is what we found. The price would be considered a little pricey but given that they have to... More

Had our first meal in Halls Gap in this restaurant, not bad at all, a bit pricy but still acceptable. Nice & friendly service.

Pub is on the southern edge of Hall's Gap. Dining room nice and warm and welcoming on a cold wet night. Standard pub fare and some more. Order at the bar and meals brought to the table We went for the chicken parma and fish and chips. Both recommended. Very well patronised and good service.

We attended this restaurant with Grampian Brushes event. The meal was not up to our previous experience or expectations and service was slow albeit that the staff were very busy. It could have been improved if the proprietors had taken on extra staff for the occasion.

RickHeinrich, Owner at Kookaburra Hotel, responded to this review

Thanks for your comment, It is extremely difficult for any establishment to serve 120 people who all basically turn up at the same time despite being advised that the kitchen would not be able to handle tis number all at once. Your group was advised to book to enable us to spread the load.As for employing extra staff for the... More
