We had breakfast here each morning while we were staying in Yulara. The food is fresh, tasty and prepared as you order. Also the buffet is fresh and tasty. Definitely a hit each morning with my family before we explored the desert and Uluru.

My wife booked this restaurant after some reviews on this site. We were not disappointed! The food was outstanding, our service was attentive and the dinner was perfect as a birthday surprise. The range of entrée and mains was really quite good for a restautant in such a remote location. The wine list was reasonable and certainly complemented the food.... 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

To have an excellent restaurant meal anywhere in the world is a real pleasure, and to find dining excellence in the remote, inhospitable Red Centre of Australia was a genuine surprise and a wonderful experience. Service was impeccable too. In my seasoned opinion, there are many restaurants in Sydney or Melbourne serving average, overpriced meals could take a lesson in... More

Just returned from a holiday to Alice Springs and Uluru. During our stay at the Desert Sands Hotel, my wife and I dined out one night at the Arnguli Restaurant. I am a serious steak lover, so for me to say that this was the best steak of my life is a big call ( I'm a young 69 )... More

We stopped by for a quick dinner without reservations and were turned away until the manager intervened. Definitely recommend reservations. We started with the watermelon soup which was quite good. Then we enjoyed the tasting platter with kangaroo, wallaby, crocodile and emu. All good. Finally, the lamb chops which were served with lentils, really worth the price. I would recommend... More

I ate here twice and enjoyed both meals - I had the Chicken Mignon and the Duck Tortellini. They provided wine match suggestions with the meals which was helpful.

When we booked our accommodation and tours with Voyages we asked for recommendations for places to eat. We really enjoyed our meal at the Arnguli Grill. The presentation was excellent and so was the service.
