Good service. Had a kangaroo steak for the first time, sorry Skippy. Very similar to beef steak. Bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

Wes just ate at this restaurant based on reading some of the reviews and as it was close to where we were going next.

Buggar, sorry about that but I am sure you did notice that we were full and a little understaffed due to the many patrons who had not made reservations. In other words we got caught with our pants down which is very embarrassing for all concerned. Please may I suggest reservations are much appreciated. Thank you for "giving us a... More

Wonderful to go to a restaurant where both adults and kids got great food. We went on two occasions - lunch and dinner with 3 kids and both times we would highly recommend. Well done red ochre .

The restaurant is conveniently located on the Todd mall, has outdoor tables and came highly quoted on TA. We went there for dinner, choose the special menu and where somewhat dissaponted.

That you for your feedback and sorry we didn't live up to hype given to us by many of the previous reviews. Our pavlova is baked fresh everyday by our Chefs hence the variance from what you may have previously experienced elsewhere. As much as we try to be consistent in all areas we are well aware that we may... More

This restaurant is known for its taste of the outback platter, which is a great selection of native meats and bush spices. They also do a delicious antipasto and dips platter for lunch, which comes with a free bottle of wine and is a bargain at $49 for 2 people! I have not tried the a la carte items on... More

I decided to come here mainly because the location is right on Todd Mall in the centre of Alice Springs. There isn't that much selection of restaurants in the CBD given the size of the town but I feel that this is definitely one of the top choices. They specialize in Australian meats and I really enjoyed the ambiance of... More

The food was good but what makes this place was the sublime and friendly table service provided. Prices were reasonable given the location of the city. Breakfast was standard fair for the price.
