“Safe in the heart of Alice”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Came on a Friday night - got a good outdoor table with 5 or 6 friends. Decent choice of beer, including jugs which worked well for us. Food timing inconsistent - 2 of the party got theirs in an astonishing 5 minutes, the others had to wait about 25 minutes. Had a v nice pizza with chips. Not cheap but quality v good and a pleasant atmosphere, suitable for kids as well. V good location with lots of nearby parking.

“Okay.”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

If you're in Alice Springs very long, you quickly learn that reasonably priced restaurants are hard to find. Besides the Rock, Monte's Lounge was suggested to us. Two burgers, a large bag of chips, no drinks - 41 AUDs. Reasonable? The burgers were okay.

Go for the outside seating; it's dark inside.

“Great for busy kids!”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Great fun and food in an eccentric restaurant with all types of seating, private, outdoor, indoor, movie on a big screen played (silently and near smokers). Fun random play area for kids including a giant rocking horse and swings with safety straps for little ones. Probably not safe to leave kids alone, but you can request a table near the play area. Very busy, make a booking, kids menu was $5 each. Adults not badly priced. Served all types of guests. Must visit!

“Cheerful and tasty”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Specialises in specialising in burgers and steaks. Simply furnished, it is much frequented by backpackers and local young folks. Nice atmosphere, and the food is fine. Don't sit at a table waiting to be served. Each table has a number, and you order the food at the bar. We found the service affable, food delivery prompt and the meals ample. The steaks were generous and simply seasoned with salt and pepper, no fancy sauces. Prices at the high end for pub food. Note that if you like your steaks really rare then you need to make a point that they must be truly underdone. We requested 'Rare' but the steaks were medium. If we eat there again, we would need to say we want it raw and very bloody inside. Overall not bad.
