Good food

We ended up dining here after our Sounds of Silence dinner overlooking Uluru was cancelled due to an amazing electrical storm. The food was good if a little pricey but given the captive market in Yulara the prices were not a surprise.

We dined here one night & we were not disappointed. It is a bit pricy but it is worth it. Both our main courses were delicious & high quality. The service was excellent & the staff were very attentive. The restaurant is licensed.

Made a reservation in advance. Thought it looked more cafe than fine dining restaurant. Till the food arrived. Absolutely DIVINE. Terrific variety incorporating "Australian" options - Emu, Crocodile, Wallaby, Kangaroo. Brilliant service. Stunning food. Highly recommend

This restaurant offered an excellent menu and the service was very good. We had two courses and were also offered an amuse bouche and chocolates in lieu of a sweet. I used the wine ladder for the. End and the choice of wines were very good. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone staying at the Ayers Rock... More

The food was incredible, the Chef has poured a lot of of knowledge and time into this menu! the food was amazingly cooked and presented. The man in Charge didn't seem to have the slightest idea on what was actually occurring within his restaurant. Asking his staff non-stop for directions and what to do... Shocking... Staff themselves were friendly enough... More

I love that this restaurant's meals are inspired by the Australian outback. We had a beautiful meal here, and if you are looking for al la carte, this is the best restaurant in the resort (favourite restaurant was Ilkari which is a buffet). Beautiful wines to go with the meals and a very relaxed and intimate setting. Definitely worth checking... More
