If you want a decent meal at Uluru, eat here. The quality far exceeds anywhere else, and you'll pay around the same price for sometimes terrible food at other establishments. Our meals at Arnguli were great and the service was as well - perhaps a little too attentive at times - you only need one waiter asking how your meal... More

Even though we had 7 different people serve us (people sort of running every which way), they were all polite. The food was mainly very good except for the Seafood pasta, which my partner had to send back. It tasted like it had been once frozen, then over-microwaved. The waitress was kind enough to remove it from the bill, but... More

We love this restaurant. Gorgeous setting with white table cloths and candles - very romantic! The food was to die for and the service was exceptional - apart from the manager who dumped our meals on the table and proceeded to clear the rest of the table leaning of us and our meals, it was a little strange and aggressive....

really enjoyed the food, ambiance was nice, and the wine list was reasonable with city like mark-ups a bonus. the food was very well cooked and prepared. well worth a visit. Worth reserving a seat, you can specify a table if you like.

The food generally in Uluru is OK at best but that's not why you're there right? So what a surprise with Arnguli Grill. The is one of my favourite meals in Australia - and the quality of the steaks compared well with Sydney and Melbourne. The waiter was attentive and knowledgable. I just couldn't fault it. Don't miss it and... More

You'd be happy with this restaurant anywhere in the world, let alone in a remote location. The menu featured modern Australian foods and the wait staff were knowledgable and well-trained. Great wine list and lots of extras like homemade bread and Australian olive oil, and amuse bouche etc. Really a delightful experience.

My husband and I recently stayed at Yulara and enjoyed a lovely meal at Arnguli on the last night of our holiday. We enjoyed the whole experience, especially the local flavours tasting plate entree and matched flight of wines, which was great. The service was excellent and the food asd good as most upscale urban restaurants. You need to book,... More

Went during our stay at Yalara. Service was efficient and attentive, food was tasty but a little over priced. Not 100% convinced on the bush sourced flavours that appear in our food but overall pretty good. 2 starters and 2 mains was about AUS$150.

My husband and I dined her for our Anniversary dinner. The menu has a good selection, and the hostess that initially served us was very friendly and warm. Overall the food was very good, hot, fresh and cooked perfectly. Our only disappointment was that the service declined as the night went on. We ended up being served by 3 different... More
