Very quiet, not many people about and service a bit slow but food was nice (not totally fantastic though). Steak was a bit fatty/rubbery but the serve sizes were fairly decent. A little bit pricey but you would expect that being where it is. Expected something more unusual or a bit more Australiana style food to be on the menu.

Had two dinners here and enjoyed them both. Enjoyed the kangaroo fillets and saltbush chicken Efficient friendly service from the bar and dining room staff. Some nice South Australian wines too.

We enjoyed the meals we had in the Bar and Bistro - they were generous in proportion and always looked attractive. Tasted good too.

although you are in the middle of nowwhere the bistro is a little oasis when you are sick of the camping food. Meals are decent size and typical selection such as chicken parma etc. They even have some fancy beers and drinks there. OVerall worth going

It was OK as bar food but the same couple of dishes every night. Shortage of tables especially annoying because not permuted to use the dining room.

Not much choice in way of restaurants when staying at Wilpena Resort. Same menu in both the pub and the restaurant so we found it a bit pricey eating in the pub. The food was OK, the service was good. First night there were no serviettes in sight and no water at the water table, second night was much more... More

We had a lovely meal the first night we stayed at Wilpena, great to be able to walk there and a good choice on the menu and reasonably priced. Quick and polite service, the meals were very large and well done. Great pub food.

Good food and wood fire in the colder periods. Quick service even although it was full. Prices reasonable given the remote location. Kids menu available $14 for a main meal, soft drink and ice cream Sunday.
