“Dinner OK, breakfast a disaster”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We decided to stay in the hotel for dinner and were not overly disappointed. The barramundi was nice but we had been served better earlier in the trip and this was supposed to be their speciality. "served with broccoli and beans" actually meant garnished with a little green veg - order sides! The service was friendly and efficient.
Sadly when we returned for breakfast the next morning the staff lacked efficiency and manners. We were made to wait a lengthy time for a table to be cleared, for bowls to be washed, for mugs to be found, for eggs to be cooked, for a working coffee machine to be located......we gave up when the croissants were replenished from the fridge with no means of heating them. Reception was only too quick to discount (fully) the bill when they heard of our tale.

“Hotel Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I am not a lover of Barramundi and picked a chicken and pasta dish for dinner. The plate was hotter than the food it held, which was mostly pasta with a small amount of chicken and a couple of sliced mushrooms. For the cost I did not think it good value. It filled a need for food at dinner time, but I would not say it say it was anything special. I was disappointed. I wish I had just gone to KFC and got take away.

The service was good and the staff friendly.

“Delicious food and delightful service...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Shared my birthday dinner here with my partner and a friend visiting home again from the UK. Always a terrific dining experience for lunch or dinner, Barra On Todd (housed within the Chifley Alice Springs Resort) is great value for money with a varied menu. Staff are friendly & courteous.
