A feature dish at this country pub is their crispy duck with brandy cream green peppercorn sauce. "45 minutes, but worth the wait", they claim. It wasn't! Very odd texture, and a bland sauce that left an unpleasant aftertaste all night. My wife's veal wasn't much better. On the plus side, the "liqueured" tiramisu was outstanding. Good service after you... More

Great food, great atmosphere, nice a quiet. Service is very good. Had dinner there and the Rack of Lamb was beautiful, veggies lovely and fresh and not overcooked. Very nice wine. We ended up going there for lunch the next day and were not disappointed. The chocolate tart is to die for. Would recommend going there for a great meal.

We live reasonably close by Halls Gap, but had never been to the Kookaburra, despite glowing reports from others. Sunday lunch a week ago saw us on their doorstep and we were definitely not disappointed. Lovely meal in quiet surrounds, with very pleasant staff. You can sit outside if you wish, but we chose an inside table for two by... More

Offers anywhere from pub food to pizza to "nice" restaurant food. We had tge blackened barramundi and chicken schnitzel, both very good with lots of vegetables and potatoes. We shared a Starter--the roasted vegetables were excellent! Our motel owner says its the best restaurant in Halls Gap. You order everything (drinks, starters, dinner) at the bar.
