Pricier but tasty

The food and service were very good. The servings are small. The price is higher than expected for the food in comparison with other options at Ayer's Rock Resort.

In the hole of restaurants that is Yulara, this restaurant stood out. It's not cheap, but it was worth it. A fantastic Tastes of Australia entree, followed by the duck main followed by an amazing chocolate dessert. I dine out frequently but this food did impress me. Definitely worth a visit. Not the greatest of atmospheres would be my only... More

I think it is one of the most welcome restaurant within Ayers Rock Resort, and booking in advance shall be a smart choice. The grilled food is doubtlessly delicious. Really enjoy it.

We ate at Arnguli three times, twice for dinner and once for lunch. This restaurant is in the Desert Gardens Hotel, which is part of the Ayers Rock Complex. We wanted an a la carte experience, and decided to avoid buffets. Nearly all other restaurants are buffets, unless you spring for the exorbitant dinner under the skies experience. Here at... More

We ate here twice for dinner and both times were great. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly and attentive. It is in the fine dining price range but it well worth the money.

We were staying at Desert Gardens and were impressed with menu, my husband had beef carparcio for entree and I had the soft shell crab which was amazing. For mains we had pork and duck which were outstanding. Our service was impeccable and would recommend if you are looking for a nice dinner then pick here.

We chose to dine here after our Sounds of Silence experience was cancelled due to impending rain. Despite the disappointment we were glad we ate here, it was lovely. The service was great with friendly waiters and waitresses happy to help with choices and wine selections. The menu is varied and has a good selection of modern dishes as well... More

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
