Had dinner here with my wife and found it to be over priced and not very good food. The specials weren't available "as the order wasn't delivered" and what we did have was pretty ordinary. Prices were more like Melbourne standard whilst food was outback pub standard.

This hotel has an interesting range of food choices that stand out as different from the local pub down the road. I loved my steak and mushroom pie of the day ($24.00). My son had the chicken snitzel and chips ($12.00). My husband had the Vegetarian salad of mixed beans, pecans, olives and salad ($19.00). The vegetarian salad was the... More

Visited recently - lovely meal & worth a try. Wine list (esp by the glass) a little limited. Pity about the paper napkins - & the ordering at the bar seems more like a pub experience.

Thought we give this place a go as a regular visitor to Halls Gap and was very surprised. Food was fantastic, had the Duck Risotto which I loved. Service was great considering they were understaffed and very busy. All in all highly recommend and will definitely go back

Great service. Food was beautiful. We hadn't booked but had a drink while waiting and found us a table pretty quickly.

The Kookaburra is always 'number one' on our dining-out agenda when we holiday in Halls Gap every Easter, and has been so since we discovered it about 30 years ago. Great food and wine, prompt service, and the atmosphere is delightful. I particularly love the Spaghetti Prawns (with garlic and parsley), and when venison with juniper berry is on the... More

Wasn't expecting much but the food was excellent. Service was fantastic given how busy it was. We had the panko crumbed prawns as a starter which was perfectly cooked and delicious. My husband had the duo of pork and I had the spinach crepes. The crepes were fantastic and highly recommended! My husband really enjoyed his meal too. A delicious... More

We had gathered as a family after a funeral. The location was welcoming, the staff helpful, the food . . . fantastic! This is seriously the best meal we have ever had anywhere in Australia.
