A bit disappointing

I'm a regular visitor to Alice Springs, and have always found consistent quality and service at the Red Ochre Grill. This time around, however, things had changed. A new and much more restricted menu for a start. The waiting staff were as friendly as ever, but the wait for the food to arrive was... read more

- we were actually recommended to take a 30 minute walk before returning, as they were very busy. We looked inside, 1/3 of tables were occupied and the yard almost empty - we were asked inside or outside, wanted inside, but that wasn't an option anyways - despite being very "busy" 3 waiters managed to pass by to ask for...

We had the fish and chips and a glass of wine. Nothing to complain about although service could have been a little quicker. Still, the food came in an acceptable time and the food was hot and tasty.

Probably the best restaurant in the area. We went along and there was no need to boom. We had garlic prawns to start followed by very good steak with some nice chips. All this washed down with a very nice bottle of wine. It was all very reasonably priced and nice and hit when served. Table staff were very friendly... More

My partner and I stopped in for breakfast. We won't again. The food was of a limited choice and poorly cooked. E.g. there was no bacon, the poached eggs were similar to hockey pucks, the coffee was cold. My advice, pass on by there is much better close by.

My wife and I tried the tapas special including wine. The tapas weren´t that special - on the meat side a piece of sausage and some bacon. Mainly vegetables. The wine however was very good and so was the service.Considering the wine good value for our money. Nice outdoor sitting.

The menu is uncomplicated with a nice variety to suit the light to heavy eaters. I was not after a solid meal and selected two starters which were perfect. The soup and vegetable side order. Both came in generous well presented servings. Great value fir money. Great personal service too. Clean. Tidy. I would go there again.
