Good value for resort

Busy place, Good choices in menu, most meals $18 to $25. Easy to find something kids like. Pizzas, pasta, fish chips, burgers. Desserts expensive though. We got pack of cornettos at IGA for dessert, much more reasonable😀

Title says it all! Rarely do we write negative reviews but this was so appalling we felt the need to review. Waited nearly an hour to receive awful canned crab on dry pasta with two cold mini tomatoes on top. Inedible. It cost more than an a la carte selection from 5 star Sails of the Desert Hotel menu next... More

We ate at this restaurant in Town Square twice, for both pasta and pizza. It was extremely popular but the staff were very polished at getting people seated and given information about ordering, drinks etc. Our meals were good value for money, drinks were available at the bar, and although it was busy there was no pressure to move on.

Exhausted after a long day sightseeing we grabbed a few pizzas take away. The staff were friendly and the food was tasty. I would happily dine here again.

We only ate here once. Read the reviews before we left our room..some good some bad. The way I see it every one is different and has different expectations of food and service. To sum it up..food was good, your order and them pick it up when the food is cooked and you go to the bar to get your... More

Had a beef burger and fish n chips for dinner. Fish was a bit dry but burger was fine. Got a bit noisy as place filled up, seems to be popular with locals for takeaway as well as tourists

There's not much to choose from. We decided to eat here for lunch. They offer pizza, pasta, burgers and salads. The kids menu is the exact same menu on offer from the bar at Sails. Quality of the food was very average and consequently over priced. Best stick to the restaurant at Sails, while expensive the quality is much better.

My 13 year-old son and I visited this restaurant after a long day of driving and hiking. We were greeted and seated within 2 minutes of arriving, and it was clearly explained that we should order at the counter for food, and at the bar for drinks, as soon as we were ready. There is no table service, no one... More

Sufficient, basic food. Could have a faster drinks service but overall fine. Surprisingly good pasta!

We ate here on all of our 3 nights in Yulara as it was nearby to our apartment, with good food, reasonable prices, and friendly, professional staff. Would like to have seem a few more vegetarian options, but there were just enough.
