Amazing dinner spent under the stars in the middle of the Australian outback. Is it expensive - yes, is it worth it - yes. Maybe not the best food I have ever eaten in my life (although it was delicious) however the entire experience is...unforgettable and it felt like a privilege to be able to experience it. Top notch evening which, if you can stretch the budget, you will remember long after you have forgotten the cost.More

The food is excellent but the rest of the experience is truly Unique. Book as soon as you Know you are going to be there. Since they only seat 20 they fill up quick. Although the price may sound high it isn't when you factor...in the rest of the experience. Also includes as much wine as you want from the wine included before and with each course. If you ask they will even let you try some of the wine they are serving for food matched with food you didn't chose for your dinner.More

This is one of the most memorable dinners we have experienced. Like other reviews, there is not much more to add. A wonderful way to watch the sun set over Uluru and Katatjuta, champagne in hand and the didgeridoo being played in the background. The...table set out is one a lot of restaurants should take note of, enough space between so that you could only here the quiet hum of conversations, not each word. The meal itself is superb. The staff are enthusiastic and friendly. Hearing about the ingredients used in the meals and the stars in the night sky only adds to this unforgettable experience. This is not a cheap night, but one that is definitely worth it.More

Fantastic food and very warm service. Not a cheap experience but one I’ll never forget. The staff were friendly and a little fun. Tasty options for me as a vegetarian and some great Aussie wines. Learning a bit more about culture, the night sky and...bush foods was really interesting.More

We booked this as part of our 26th wedding anniversary trip to Uluru. The whole evening was faultless. The attention to detail is spot on. The food was perfect. We had a dust storm earlier in the afternoon so we couldn’t see Uluru but that...did not deter at all from the experience as the setting sun was stunning. Cannot recommend this experience enough. Thank you to the chef, driver, wait staff and all involved.More

There's really not much I can add to the narrative provided by other reviewers - this is sensory magic in so many different ways. The other reviewers provide very valid commentary. The few points I'd like to add include: - Full marks to Joseph, who...appeared at our hotel pickup as the tour host and bus driver. Our booking noted that one of our party was in a wheelchair - Joseph was concerned about how she would get into the bus. Turns out this was a mistake - but we did have 2 in our party with significant mobility issues. In particular - how would we climb the dune to where the festivities took place? No problem for Joseph - he assured us we could access the buggy on-site, that would jet stream us to the top. That was a load off 2 of our party's minds. Then we hit Joseph over the head with the fact that 1 of us was allergic to/didn't eat any type of fish or seafood. No problems say Joseph - he'll inform the chef. He did inform the chef - and right from the start our seafood allergin was ONLY offered canapes, entres etc with no seafood Other reviewers have covered other details - how good it was to sip Bollinger whilst watching the sun go down over Ayers Rock and the Olgas, didgeridoo in the background - and a young, keen team of waitstaff doing whatever they could to help (including regularly topping up the glasses! We all met Chef - he told us about the natural ingredients. Meal delightful. The specially trained waitstaff (who appeared to have graduated from a program to teach skills to trainee indigenous folk) were able to answer every question, attend to our every desire, and fully explain what we were about to eat. The dining experience was one of the best we've had - anywhere in the world. Sitting under the stars, 5-star food, great service, blah blah blah. But then back comes Joseph. He had a laser much more impressive than Darth Vader's - and he was literally able to point up into the universal, to show us the various star patterns, and relay to us the meaning this had for the original inhabitants. The story about how new stars represent a recently passed on loved one parking their canoe and sending back a message that they were settled via shooting star was particularly moving and appeared to be for Joseph as well. That done - back down to the now blazing campfire - for tea of cognac - for Joseph to tell us about various Aboriginal hunting technology. There were only 13 of us there - advertised maximum is 20. Even just sampling the recommended wines with each dish was an adventure in itself. Herein a safety trip for potential customers. As of today - the Tali Wire experience is advertised at $375 per person with pick up from each hotel. Alternatively, you can be flown in by helicopter for $795 per person. That's over $400 difference per person. All sounds very romantic - but bear in mind you can book a helicopter tour that takes in Ayer's Rock and the Olgas for $150 per person. This tour even flies over the Tali Wiru secret dune. Seriously - Joseph took us out in a luxury air-conditioned bus and talked to us all the way about the supermarket, hardware store and pharmacy we were looking at as we travelled through his world. This was great. You can save a lot of money by doing the helicopter bit separately. Hope this helps future travellers!More

The Tali Wiru dinner exceeded all expectations by a huge margin. The location was perfect, on a large dune, with Champagne and hors d'oeuvres while the sun set followed by a first class dinner paired with great aussie wine. The number of guests is small...(10 to 20) and the tables well separated, The service was exceptional. Thoroughly recommend this above all other dining experiences in Uluru.More

What an experience, picked up in a big four wheel drive bus, driven out to the sand dunes for what we will remember for a long time. Champagne and canapes which were to die for. Dinner was amazing sitting up on a sand dune with...nothing in sight, service was excellent. This is A MUST DO, definately on your bucket list.More

An unforgettable evening/dinner experience. Beautifully presented food accompanied by matching wines. One of the best fish dishes I've ever eaten, who would have thought such a dish could be eaten in the heart of Australia's red center. Personal table service with amazing staff. If there...is one thing you do, this is the one with the lot! On offer is delicious food, an appreciation of the night sky and a cultural experience. A decadent dinner on a dune. This is a must!More
