I can't vouch for all the other meals but the tortellini was awful! It was lacking flavour and the pasta was poorly cooked. I also pulled a giant hair that looked like it came from a beard out of my meal...... The staff were blunt. Wouldn't risk getting another meal here.

Considering we are in the middle of the Australian outback, this restaurant was like being on Lygon Street in Melbourne. Very crowded and popular. Serving staff were backpackers with rich European accents. Food was very good BUT we waited a long time to be served because of a 'backlog' in the kitchen. Locals like this place a lot.

Went her on a brief stop in Alice. Food was plentiful and tasty and it didn't cost a lot. Menu has a lot of variety, id recommend booking most nights as it was very busy.

There were nine of us in our group for dinner after a day of sightseeing but we had booked a couple of days beforehand. We got there early but it was not a problem our table was ready. I ordered the chicken with prawns and avocado but there was such a huge variety to choose from I hoped I had... More

Were here for dinner. Menu is more Italian than Australian, though there is a local touch to the dishes. Portions were gigantic (come hungry!), delicious, and the staff was very helpful and nice. A must.

We visited on a Tuesday night and the place was full. You need to book. We always get consistent quality food, good sized meals and friendly service. The best past is they always look after your drinks which shows attention to service. This is one of Alice Springs hidden treasures and always delivers.

I had the Barra which was to die for and melt in the mouth. The chips were delicious and the salad was not too bad. However the sauce on the Barra was very sweet and I feel did not go with the fish. I usually have the fish when I go out and I have never had a sauce like... More

My son was overwhelmed by his "small serve" of nachos . But it wasn't quantity over quality . We all loved our meals and drinks and desserts . Very clean and excellent service . Something is amiss with the decor ; can't quite describe the feeling that we could be in a giant bathroom . .... but nonetheless we are... More
