food and drinks were overpriced for the size they were, sodas tasted like poorly made sodastream ordered the nachos which didn’t come with any sour cream or guacamole, horrible customer service didn’t come up to our table once while we ate and had to wait...over 15 minutes to be asked if we would like to get some dessert while they visited the same and other tables multiple times. do betterMore

We were fortunate to get a table at this restaurant on Saturday night as we had not made a booking. The service was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a series of flavour packed dishes designed as share plates. The drinks menu offered a good selection...of local ales and good quality wine. With a great atmosphere, sensational food and service, we would be keen to return. Next time, we’ll book to avoid disappointment. Thanks for your vote.More

Such a perfect way to end our holiday! So accommodating of me being coeliac and checking everything with the chef to ensure they didn’t contaminate our food! Amazing service - so friendly and authentic asking us about our day and sharing their story with us....Delicious wine. Pork ribs were incredible and fell off the bone! Chocolate gelato capped off such an amazing meal!More

Everyone seems to leave this restaurant witrh a smile and it's no surprise. The owner and staff offer a friendly welcome which continues throughout the meal. The mood is relaxed and the service excellent. A good choice of dishes and we enjoyed Crystal Bay prawns...(thoughtfully served on ice), pork spareribs which were meltingly tender accompanied by onion rings and a fig and goat's cheese salad. Local beers are served and we tried a lovely red (La Cantina) from the Victorian side of the Mountains. We left the restuarant very happy!More

We (three of us) wandered around looking for somewhere for dinner as we hadn’t made a booking and the menu outside at Cocina & Co. looked really good (able to cater for a pescatarian gets a big tick from me). Did they have a free...table? “Yes, if we could wait for a minute?”. Definitely. Seated at a tall table downstairs we ordered cocktails which were only just served as our table was ready .. so we headed to the lovely more intimate room upstairs where we were looked after very well by the owner, Con, and his staff. The menu is tapas style and we enjoyed every dish we chose. An excellent night and make sure you book here for great food, cocktails and wines in Jindabyne.More

We’ve been to this restaurant before, but this year was more exceptional. They changed the menu and it was just divine. We tried everything on it as shared plates. The staff are so welcoming and helpful, our waters were always full, and any and all...special requests were met. The owner is so engaging and ensures you have a great eating experience. You must try this restaurant, food is delicious. Particularly enjoyed the cauliflower bites, onion rings, tempura trout, beef cheeks and chorizo to name a few. Of course we all ended with the churros and chocolate dipping sauce. You won’t be disappointed.More

We chanced on this restaurant and were repaid in spades! Mouth watering beef cheeks and beautifully crafted pork belly, topped off with scrumptious churros and choc dipping sauce! What a delightful way to spend an evening, looking out over the sun setting on lake Jindabyne...and enjoying a cool glass of local beer and an even better local Pinot! Perfect! Rivals what we have in Sydney!More

We had a beautiful meal on our last night in Jindabyne. Service was friendly and attentive throughout the night and the food was delicious. If we're ever around for the snow season we'll definitely be back.
