Great menu and lovely service

Comparable to Melbourne food and selection. A surprise birthday dinner was celebrated here. We had just arrived for the first time to the Uluru region. I had no knowledge of what to expect but the food was excellent, presented well and stylishly and mouth-watering in its freshness. In my ow ignorance, I suppose, I expected everything to have a brought... More

We were greeted by a waiter who showed us to our table. We found the overall experience fantastic, the staff were very helpful when asked about the menu and the food was very delicious.

Excellent dinner, attentive staff. We dined here after previously eating at the White Gums restaurant, same hotel, the night before. This restaurant is definitely worth the extra money.

We are here as we were staying in the nearby Desert Gardens hotel. The menu is impressive with a wide range of foods obviously all flown in. Service was quite good but the food lets the restaurant down. It is marketed as a grill so you would expect perfect steaks. First impression was not good as the (expensive) garlic bread... More

Not cheap but good meal with a reasonable ambience. Given the relative cost of other restaurant/eateries in the resort, I would recommend it. Probably skip the oysters unless you like them in tempura and move straight into the tasting plates. My lamb main was delicious although my partner's fish (snapper, I think) was not exactly dainty but, on the positive... More

Nice food, great service from our waiter Florian, but a little pricey. Use it as a special treat and try the 'Taste of Australia' - for a Pom it's a bit of an experience in itself.

This was THE BEST meal we had in Uluru/alice springs. Yes it was expensive at about $75/person but it was so worth it. The food was intricate, the waiters really attentive to detail, and there were chefs making your orders as soon as you ask for them so food came up plated and hot to your table - which is... More

After reading varied reports on this restaurant we weren't expecting much but the food was amazing. Service wasn't 100% and there was a mix up with our booking however it was still worth the inconvenience. The salmon dish and dessert were both mouth watering. Staff certainly need more customer service training.
