“Perfect for family lunch”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We stumbled upon this whilst looking for lunch in Mall. It was cool, reasonably priced and satisfied everyone. The club sandwich was especially good and we shared between 2. No problem coping with fussy eaters to just do plain eggs. Everyone happy!

The Red Ochre Grill in the Aurora Alice Springs hotel continues to impress with it's quality service, great menu choices including daily specials, ambient environment and lots of 'smiley' faces everywhere.

“Satisfied customers!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

In Alice for a few weeks for work, this time with my family, and couldn't wait to take them to Red Ochre, after I'd been alone the first time. Both times have been for lunch, so I can't speak (yet) to dinner, but today's experience surpassed the first. It has a lovely outdoor seating area but also plenty of space inside if you prefer. Lunch prices were around the 18 aud mark, 6/7 aud for a beer. What I am SO impressed about though, was that children under 5 years old eat for free, this is more like aomething a club will do as a promotion, and only on certain nights - very unexpected in a restaurant with such an interesting menu, and is on offer all the time. What the restaurant might have spent on our young sons small meals, they will regain from us as repeat customers over the next few weeks. My husband had the club sandwich and liked it, I went for the warm kangaroo and crocodile salad, just for the novelty, I wouldn't personally do it again, but there is plenty more on that menu for me to enjoy. Service was prompt and friendly without being pushy. See you guys soon :)

"We are glad we made you SMILE"

Satisfied customers, that’s what I like to hear. Thank you for your return visit and advising us that all your family had a most enjoyable lunch.

I notice you have given us an extra star rating this time than your previous visit so maybe a little more staff training and who knows we may crack the 5 stars on your return?

Kindest regards

“There are much better places to eat!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Bog, bog, bog standard dinner notwithstanding the use of meats such as kangas, camel etc. This place is really for tourists too lazy to leave the hotel. There are much better places to eat - try Hanuman's for Thai/Indian and for a trip back to old Italia cross the riverbed to Casa Nostra - try the vanilla slice for dessert!

I fully understand that we may not please all of the people all of the time BUT there is no need to insult my hard working Chefs by describing their prepared food as bog.

You also insulted my guests by calling them lazy tourists. It may surprise you but the restaurant caters for a wide range of patrons of which many are Alice Springs residents, corporate/government clients of Aurora Alice Springs and both overseas and Australian visitors.

Alice Springs has a great selection of lovely restaurants with various cuisines but The Red Ochre, although having an extensive and varied menu (not just kangas & camel) is not an Italian, Thai or Indian restaurant.

I encourage constructive reviews and criticism but not insults.

I refer the readers to the review below "four of us ate different things and each meal was perfectly cooked and tasty. The service was brilliant and it has a lovely atmosphere. I would recommend the Red Ochre as a definite restaurant to try while in Alice"
