“excellent food and wine for a good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

We have eaten here both evenings that we were in Alice Springs and the food is very good. Great steak and fries, also the crocodile tail is jummy. Wine is good too. Atmosphere is maybe a little bit outdated. Staff was really friendly. Only minus was that they offer a discount for guests of the Aurora hotel, but when you ask for it there are many rules you should have followed in order to get this discount. Not a great service. Every else was absolutely fine!

Thank you for your comprehensive review.

Yes, It can be a little confusing the 20% discount as with most discount offers there are conditions.

Kindest regards

“Nice and Cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

It was 46 at 1730 so nice to settle somewhere cool. Recommended IPA, Coopers, was good,
food good, wife reckoned half the pasta dish would have been fine, my kangaroo was superb.
Wine service a bit slack.

Thank you for the review, much appreciated.

I am sorry that you didn't receive the wine service expected, it is nice to have your wine poured during the evening and we have reminded all the staff about this expected service.

I went there during branch. Had the scone set and we are the only customer during that time. Taste was good, price was acceptable. Took our own sweet time having the scones.

“Good food, great staff, welcome dogs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

Love coming to this casual restaurant because they allow you to bring your dog to the outdoor area. Food is of a good quality and reasonable value for money. The staff are always very friendly and make you feel very welcome. There was a slight glitch with my meal this time but they offered a complimentary dessert or glass of wine and a full refund. Well done!

One thing they could do to be totally unique in Alice Springs and attract more people on the weekend would be to have a "doggie menu". We would totally shout our wee one lunch if it was around $10 for a special made doggie food (meat loaf?), love that they bring a bowl of water out for the wee one!

Thank you for your review and suggestion.

We do not promote dogs in the courtyard of our restaurant for obvious reasons, not all dogs are well behaved like yours so we suggest that patrons take a table fronting the Todd Mall and tie their dogs up to the outside front fence, we are always happy to supply the drinking water.

Kindest regards

“Great service great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Dined at this restaurant for breakfast. Asked the waiter in they had ribs on the dinner menu, said they did and he had to go out and source some from the butcher and said if we were keen for dinner he would look after us. We went back for dinner and our plates had double the amount of ribs on them. Great service prob the best choice in town.

Thank you for your great recommendations, very much appreciated.

You must have really impressed the wait staff to get yourself a double serve of our world famous Pork Spare ribs, well done.
