How wonderful to have a licensed restaurant in the middle of a country caravan park!
The food was great, the service spot on. May there be more places like this!

The potato scallops are a rip off. 8 very very thin potato slices in a tempura batter for $10!!!! Equivalent to buying around 3kg of spuds. Be warned.

Hi Leanne. Your review doesn’t seem fair. Remember you are paying for REAL potato scollops that is serviced with a housemade local tomato relish and seasoned with Murray River salt -an Australian product.. you’re also sitting there enjoying our ambiance, and the table you are sitting at as well as paying that staff member to serve you a glass of cold water on arrival ...all with a smile.

Good food, service prompt and attentive without being overbearing. Prawn entree way too salty but otherwise pretty happy.

Staff were very friendly and very obliging. The menu was an interesting mix and good quantity and quality. Definitely value for money. The men in our group had the beef cheek which was delicious my friend had the chicken and I the pork belly also very good. Meals had great presentation with the vegetable accompaniments perfectly cooked. Surroundings simple and clean allowing the meals to be the stars. Premises are wheel chair friendly. We will be back

We had pizza for dinner here - and it was THE BEST Pizza we have ever had - they were full of topping, flavour and were simply delicious!
We had leftovers for lunch the next day, and they still tasted great!
Another group had other items, which also looked equally satisfying.

We had a pizza and chicken casserole that night,
Pizza was really nice but casserole was a bit salty for me.
Overall was a good experience.

Not Latin/tapas as we had expected. I’m guessing under new management.. Bad service and ordinary food.

Great food as always! We ordered a combination of tapas and mains and shared them all. It’s wonderful to have such diversity in a small country town, part of High Country Hamlets! Some specials too might encourage more visits! Everyone loves a special!

Great food, delicious. On the downside we had reservations for 1 pm but I didn't realise it closes at 2pm. Had I known that we would have come earlier so the staff didn't feel rushed. I hadthe pork belly burrito. Yum...The baked cheesecake was lovely but cream on the side would have cut through the density of it. I will be coming back.

We choose to share all our dishes around our table of 4. One person was a vegetarian but eats fish. No trouble finding options to suit us all. The empanadas were great but just a little dry....needed more sauce with it! The prawns delicious and fresh, the calamari to die for! Definitely going back to the Cocina!

We had lunch there the other day, after reading a review on our local face book page, and found the food and the service to be absolutely fantastic. We will be back again soon to try more of their menu, in fact we intend to go back again and again until we have tried everything on their menu. Great value too.
