Very fun venue out front of my accommodation, with good food and a sensational deal for Base residents. Music was fun and eclectic, and the backpackers made for a lively vibe.

When it takes over an hour for your food to arrive, any review is going to start badly. We were not impressed with the waiting time. By the time we got our food we were absolutely famished. At one stage we went to get a refund (after 50 mins of waiting) so that we could leave, but we were told... More

Dear DJAGNZ, Thank you for leaving us this review highlighting an issue you had. Please be assured I have passed this on to the kitchen and Head Chef and let them know wait times like this are not acceptable. Usually our meals come out at a quick pace and this combined with the value for money. Leaves people coming back... More

Like: Pizza is a good option. Dislike: Lasagna. It was cold. Good prices. Meals includes beer. Only for 10 dolars

I have passed this on to the kitchen and ensured they revisit their procedures to ensure a repeat of the cold meal doesn't happen. I am however glad you found value in our pricing and product.

Excellent value for money meals and good service. I ate the steak with mushroom sauce - huge and divine! My husband ate the burger and thought it was pretty fab too. We were here on a rainy August afternoon and it was quite busy, although felt a little bit drab - was probably just the weather though.

The bar was quite alright. The volume of the music made it rather hard to chat to other people, but that was probably because they put our group right in front of the speakers. The food was reasonably priced though and quite tasty.

So Australia can be really freaking expensive, especially when it comes to going out for food/drinks. Especially in a touristy beach town. But the Down Under Bar and Grill provided me with the cheapest meal I had during my entire 20 day trip AND it was actually really freaking tasty AND it came with a beer! Can't beat that.
