We ate here as a special dinner for my pregnant wife. She had the snapper and I had a steak. Within 2 hours my wife was violently ill. We notified the hotel who said they created an incident report and that the restaurant would be in contact. I still haven't heard anything. Expensive meal for a holiday ruining experience.

We ate here the first night and decided to just keep coming back because the food was fresh, well prepared, plenty of variety and excellent quality. Being from Melb we eat out a lot and are reasonable choosy but there was something for everyone in our party of three. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, (perhaps more so then I... More

My wife and I ate here for our wedding anniversary. This was the first night of a new menu and the food taste and choice was excellent. Great staff.

The steak was as good as I have got anywhere in the world. The service was friendly and fast. Not much choice for vegetarians though.

Enjoyed our dinner at Arnguli Grill. Service was ok and good selection of quality meals. Probably the best meal we had on our trip to Uluru.

Best meal in the resort and excellent service. Tried all the restaurants in the resort and this was hands down the best meal and service.

This rates itself as a 5 star restaurant but it isn't. We've dined at the Peninsular, Hong Kong, The Balmoral, Edinburgh and Gleneagles, Perthshire and this is no where near Five stars. We ate at this restaurant two nights in a row simply because choice at the resort is so limited here. The second night we arrived slightly early for... More

This was the best meal that my partner and I had eaten whilst staying for 3 nights in Yulara. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable, although the decor of the restaurant could do with a little updating (the open kitchen took away from 'fine dining' experience). Nevertheless, our meals were both delicious as was the dessert tasting plate. A must-do... More

We set here twice, both meals were good and service accurate and attentive without being intrusive. Too full to try to desserts, but would recommend the chicken breast as a main meal

We went here for our first night. As soon as we arrived we were given a small canape of a fish mousse to try and bread and butter, which were both included free. However the actual prices were quite expensive, even for an expensive resort! The %50 steak came with a very small piece of steak that definitely didn't live... More
