Excellent food! We ordered all the entrees and salads. It was delicious and the freshness of the salad was surprising as they are so far away from town. The chef gave us a complimentary wallaby shanks and it was delicious!

We dined here 3 times during our stay at the Cooinda Lodge. The atmosphere is pub style with a menu to match. We dined early so it was not crowded. The burger and barramundi were quite good. However the 3 sausage meal was diabolical. Not...More
