This is a must do, when in the area. Cockoo's is a great place to meet and greet, family, friends and to meet new friends. The food is amazing. Go for Lunch or Dinner, or just a fun coffee and yummy desserts. Italian, plus so many more dishes to choose from that have local ingredients, breads. and so much more.... More

This place is a must, especially in the summer for dinner out on their beautiful patio. If you like seafood, you have to try the seafood risotto! It's unbelievable!! Loaded with seafood and the sauce is to die for. I recommend the platted and share between two people. Had this dish 4 times myself, and I can't bring myself to... More

It is now a ritual for us to stop at Cuckoo's restaurant each time we are in the area. The quality and the flavors are always amazing. Everything is fresh and made from scratch. We tried all kinds of entrees and everything was awesome.

Just off the main island highway in the small town of Coombs is an amazing eatery that fulfills all the needs of a great restaurant. Wonderful Italian pasta, beautiful Italian outdoor terrace and great service! We always go for a pasta dish, but the pizza and salads look just as fantastic!

Suprisingly this is one of the best restaurants in the QB area inspite of all the tourists. Food is always great. Staff is helpful and efficient and the atmosphere has a European feel. We frequent this restaurant with guests and friend and always recommend it to all.

8 of us dined there today for a family gathering. We were so pleased with having Bruno for our server. He took wonderful care of us, with humour and patience! First time eating here and we were all impressed with the food. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We tried it last summer and had to go back when we were in the area in November. Elegant, european styling, fine food served beautifully. Fresh and tasty and for us so great to have a pizza with only goat cheese for those with lactose intolerance. One of the finest restaurants in the area. Have done lunch - can't wait... More
