“poddy dodgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

it was being renovated when I was last there and smelled of paint but I am sure it will look and smell nice when the work is finished. We had a really nice meal there and the staff were friendly and helpful. There were kangaroos grazing on the lawn under the sprinkler just out from the dining room windows, and kangaroo on the menu!

“Pub-bistro, casual and pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The bistro at Wilpena Pound resort suffers the same problem many remote places do - poor staff and not enough of them! Food was OK though a little too pricey and decor average. Nice to have a restaurant in such a remote place but it needs a little more attention.

“Could be special but just doesn't have any magic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is an OK place with expensive food that doesn't qualify as good value for money. Staff are universally 'travellers' and have the knowledge and enthusiasm to match. The beer is cold though.

“Nothing special.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

This was ordinary cafe food,could have been anywhere in the world.Pleased we were only there for lunch.The Bar itself looks as if it could do with a make over,and thye restrooms were equally tired.
