In Whyalla for a family funeral, with most people from Adelaide and interstate staying in the adjacent cabins, at almost the last minute, it was decided to head into the restaurant for an evening meal. We were quite a large group, approx. 14-18 in number. At what was nearing the end of a busy evening (for them), we were made... More

The Menu was extensive, so lots to choose from. Reasonably priced and had Seniors Discount. Excellent service from all Staff.Spacious room so everyone is not crowding you.

We were staying with friends in Whyalla. With the adults and kids we had a lovely, hearty meal and we would like to recommend this restaurant.

We were staying at the motel and walked into the lounge just before 6pm for a drink and were recommended to book a table at the restaurant. Very glad we did as when we went into the restaurant shortly afterwards it was nearly full. It was a Thursday night and the special of the day was "ribs" so not sure... More

Great atmosphere, good prices. There were some conflicting opinions within our group about the food, a couple said average and others were completely happy with their meals. Still not a bad place for a meal & drinks.

We visited Whyalla 2 years ago, and stayed in the motel. Our son felt very much at home because of the king bed. The lunch was good, no doubt. At breakfast time, though we had hot breakfast, we wanted a special omelette for our son having strong likes & dislikes. The chef made & served it willingly, and the waiters... More

As locals we want to eat and good value for money is the go. We are regulars now for a meal for a few years and we still find the place good value. The Manager has recently changed but that seems like a normal practice and we didn't even notice. The food is good and the service is excellent. Try... More

We have always liked going here for meals but have to admit the menu got a bit old and boring so when we heard the menu had change we went back to see what was on the menu. Well I can happily say we will be going back to the Sundowner more often. The food and service were great, meals... More

Really like the food, but book ahead, even on a week day! Staff are friendly and patient with kids, and breakfast was really good too.

We have been here many times. This place has a very good atmosphere, service staff are friendly and always have a smile on their face. There is a fair amount to choose from off the menu but the menu doesn't seem to change very often. Still the food is yummy. Not to badly priced and a kids menu is available.... More

pgmj, Manager at sundowner, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to review our venue. The staff that work the bistro floor are an amazing team of people who are able to smile and make our customers feel welcome at all times. I agree that our menu does not change regularly enough - we aim for 3 times a year - but only manage twice... More
