This restaurant is a little difficult to review. We were a group of four having dinner in April 2018. The restaurant itself is beautiful and elegant. That's the reason I give it twostars instead of one. The service was adequate. But our meals, a risotto,...More

I cannot imagine giving Cuckoo anything less than 5 stars!!! Amazing food and service. They also offer gluten free pasta which is such a treat for those that love pasta but have a wheat allergy. This is always a must stop when traveling through Coombs.

I was looking forward to my first dinner at Cuckoo, having heard what a great place it was. I'd call the experience average - service was quite slow and not particularly good and the food varied from average to quite tasty depending on the dish....More

We stopped at Cuckoo at Coombs for lunch and had the best meal we have had in a long time. The special of the day was a wild mushroom and sausage fettuccini - absolutely delicious. The rustic sandwich was a real killer too. The service...More

Stopped here for lunch en-route to Tofino. Great salads, pasta, pizza, wine. A perfect trattoria in the middle of no-where! My only wish was we were there for dinner and could have lingered longer in the pretty lights. Priced well. Great service. Reservations recommended.

While this is an italian restaurant there is a section of the menu that is marked gluten free. Dress is casual - not business just casual. This restaurant is very classy and I would suggest something a bit more up scale... More
