The menu was child friendly and they coped well with changes to the menu for the fussy eaters. We got a number of dishes and shared which was good for our family group. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

Tasty pizza, but service was very slow and female staff didn't seem to want to come near us. The young man who brought us our pizza (Sat 5/7) was very friendly and keen to please.

We ordered the fish and chips and a pizza to share for a family of 5 and found the amount we ordered perfect for a lighter lunch.

This restaurant was popular, I think only because eating places here a few and far between. We ordered a pizza to share but it was mainly cheese with very little other toppings. Certainly not value for money.

Food is very decent but this place is loud and hectic. More like a cafeteria than a restaurant but pretty good value for money. The wattle seed damper was great.

We ate here twice, and found the food good, but had to queue each evening, even though there were empty tables inside. Perhaps they ought to employ more staff as it was busy. For Uluru we thought the price was reasonable.

This Cafe was very very busy and we seemed to be in no mans land as no one was willing to serve our table of 5. However we eventually got served. OK food but terrible service and a little on the pricy side. However very good for breakfast with good service and nice food.

Food just average. Prices a little high but most places are highly prices in the NT for tourists I guess.
