“Coconut Prawns - Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

The locals recommended Krokodillos which is usually a good sign. We had their take- away first to test the water and it was delivered to our apartment and was delicious. The coconut prawns were especially delicious and the pizza was very good too. Both were still nice and hot .We went to the restaurant for our wedding anniversary dinner the night before we had to fly home and had a fantastic meal. After seeing the size of other diners' meals my husband opted to have 2 entrees and then shared a desert with me. I had a main and half the desert which was more than I should have had. My curry was divine and I am not usually a big fan of curries but it sounded so good I had to have it and it was. The restaurant was full but the staff were great and the food stunning.

“Crab Bruschetta - worth coming back for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

A small restaurant with a big menu and it is all goodEating ourside on a balmy night and always starting with the Crab Bruschetta - this is enough to want to come back for but there is more. The fish is always superb and the curries wonderful.

“Out of the Way - But a Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Always on the lookout for something different, my wife and I tried Krokodillos last night. It is tucked away in the Yorkeys Knob shopping village, giving the first impression of just another restaurant in amongst some shops. How wrong can first impressions be.

We were well greeted by Justin and seated outside (indoor seating also available). Pleasantly surprised at the variety of the menu - pasta, seafood, steak, curries, pizza (including calzones). To try something a little different we settled on two entree size dishes each so as to get a taste for their menu. Oven roasted mushrooms filled with spinach & cheese, crocodile tail spring rolls with dipping sauce, Moroccan Lamb rolls with piri piri sauce and an entree size Chilli Crab & Calamari tossed through angel hair pasta with garlic & basil. Glad we only ordered entree size of the pasta as it was plenty (hate to see the size of the main meal). All the meals were hot, fresh and absolutely beautiful. Match this with a casual yet professional service and we were more than satisfied with our dinner.

The wine list wasn't overly extensive but did provide a good range. They do serve house wine by the carafe if you are watching the budget. Would like them to consider BYO wine, even with a modest 'corkage' charge, so as to perhaps attract more locals (like us) to keep coming back.

“Tasty meal & nice service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

Ordered a yummy carbonara pasta and my husband got a steak. Both were cooked perfectly. My pasta however was a bit oily and had a puddle of oil/butter at the bottom! Staff were really friendly. Would go back. Awesome how they do take away as well! Location isn't the best, just in a carpark.
