Initial impression of the bistro is not great! When the hotel restaurant is closed this is the only place for dinner, so the décor and food presentation need to step up a notch. We know this is the NT and remote, but we have visited...More

We went to the bistro and were totally disappointed. The restaurant was deserted so we went for the bistro and opted for the tasting plate. That was a disaster. Stale bread, frozen pate, and a selection of other things which we couldn't figure out. Probably...More

Very rude and unhelpful staff in barra bar. Waitress was rude after she got our order incorrect then wanted us to pay for her error. Very disappointed. Paid top price for accommodation.

Chips were undercooked and almost inedible. Angus burger was lacking flavour. A steak that was ordered medium rare was rare to blue. The chicken burger was ok except the chicken breast was tough and dry. Definitely not worth the prices we paid but with no...More

This is the best value and best quality food we have experienced so far. Burgers were really good and unlike other places in Jabiru, it didn't cost an arm and a leg. Relaxed outdoor eating. Friendly service. Made use of the beautiful pool after our...More

Cooinda Lodge is great, the Barra Bar and Bistro do simple but tasty meals. They also have a buffet lunch on offer which is great value. There is also a lovely resort pool which is a must in the NT weather!! Love this place.

We weren't expecting much as rooms are tired but food was fabulous both for dinner and breakfast. Small selection of meals but very tasty and diverse enough to eat for a few nights running. Great food!

Good if you like outdoor / alfresco drinks and eating, with gardens near and pool adjacent, overhead fans. Has a tropical feel which might be a bit warm for some. Food is average quality pub style, order at the bar and collect when buzzed, no...More

Reasonably priced. We had an excellent platter of kangaroo, crocodile and buffalo sausages. Great to try local food. There is also food available for less adventurist people.
