We were staying in the Outback Pioneer Hotel, which was closed for evenings for refurbishment. So we caught the free bus into the town square 10 minutes bus ride. The staff were very attentive and as soon as we walked in we were greeted. Had a lovely meal of burger and fries and a carafe of sangria. The desserts were... More

We had dinner there one night to get away from the expensive hotel dining. There isn't a lot of choice in Yulara! The prices are more than you would pay in a less remote town, but not excessively so. I had a beefburger and chips and it was certainly better than one from a fast food chain. My partner had... More

Banal and tasteless food felt they were taking advantage of being the only café in town and not focusing on quality and tasty food

Came here 2x for dinner. Service was quick and OK. Unfortunately, on our first visit we ordered one thing and were brought something else, but we were so hungry we didn't bother making a fuss. Came back the next day and it was OK. The kids loved the activity sheet provided on arrival. The portions were big and I was... More

Not much more to say about this place other than the food is tasteless, service was bad and prices were high. Probably one of the worst lunches we had during our trip to Australia.

We ordered the damper of entree but it was not cooked though properly. The lemonade ordered arrived as mineral water. The main meals were outstanding. Check your bills, we were charged for others coffees. Staff should clear the tables quicker.
