This resto has wide menu selection which is welcome. I have some good meals and some ordinary more like pub food. The serving is always generous and served in good amount of time. Waiters are mostly cheerful and friendly.

Attended with three friends for lunch. The food was fresh and the prices good at around $20 per Main menu item. The servings could have been just a portion smaller.

Even though the establishment has had a makeover, I would still highly recommend it for good food, good times and great service.

We went her for our last meal before we did the Larapinta end to end trail. I had the steak and it was great, cooked to perfection and a good size, would go again. Reasonably priced too
