Quiet place to contemplate along the mall

Have visited the Red Ochre a number of times for lunch and it is always busy yet quiet inside. The customers seem to understand that it is a time to step back and unwind. The paintings/photos on the walls remind you exactly where you are and the food is great.

The decor is pleasant and modern and so is the food. Native ingredients add something a little bit unusual to the ingredients. The mains are large. Instead of a main I had crocodile sausage as a starter. The sausage was delicately flavoured and served on an interesting and unusual salad. Husband had a main though -- a Scotch fillet, also...

Like a lot of others here we found the service to be somewhat random - no service from the three staff, difficultly getting a drink even up at the bar, then service from two staff in short succession seeing if we wanted drinks. The food was nice but set at touristy prices. All of our steaks were overcooked yet while... More

Waitress was terrific, food bland and ordinary, chef unwilling to compromise and add chips instead of vegetables, won't be going back ever again,.

Went here based on DK guidebook review. Menu looked very interesting with lots of local meat choices (kangaroos, emus, crocodiles etc.). Unfortunately we did not see a server for 25 minutes after being seated so we left. Doubtless the manager will claim that the place was busy due to Territory day or he was short staffed but honestly the place... More

I was keen to dine at a Red Ochre restaurant, however I was disappointed with this one in Alice Springs. Meals are quite expensive, so this coupled with my dry, bland pork, left me feeling that Red Ochre is over-rated. Service was good and the atmosphere was warm and formal.

We arrived about 7pm & the restaurant was pretty quiet. Service was good. Even though the food came a little too soon after us ordering, it didn't put us off. It was delicious, I had the kangaroo & my partner had the squid. Would recommend & would go back.

We enjoyed the food here especially because of its use of Aussie ingredients. I had kangaroo and it was tender and tasty with lovely veges. My companions enjoyed chicken ,and you could have emu,etc. friendly staff and BYO. A good meal!

If you want to taste the best of outback foods then visit Red Ochre Grill for lunch or dinner. This restaurant kitchen specialises in putting a modern twist on traditional foods from Central and Northern Australia. Local delicacies such as Kangaroo and Barramundi are combined with spices and fruits from indigenous plants to create light and tasty dishes. We enjoyed... More

We had a really bad experience here. The online menu on website was completely different when we got there. After being seated waited 15 minutes for the waitress who never came back so we ordered drinks with a different waitress. Our waitress came back to ask if we were ready to order and we said we'd ordered drinks already but... More
