4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

The food was of a high standard, really good steak and pasta, and the staff were fantastic. Very friendly and enthusiastic.
The prices are not cheap but be realistic.

“Not bad in an out of the way place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

If you're staying at Kings Canyon resort, or go to Kings Canyon with AAT Kings you'll end up here for a meal. Basically a simple cafe. Plenty of seats inside, some also outside.

There are a few choices for lunch, the special of the day when we visited was an all you can eat salad bar. Unfortunately it didn't look that appetising, and at $19 didn't look worth it. However they do a range of burgers and fries; we tried one of the specialties - camel burger (about $20) and it was great, very tasty and didn't taste gamey at all. Recommended. Chips were excellent - nice and crunchy too, and the meal sizes were very good too.

Service was OK, they seemed a little disinterested, but they've a pretty captive market. Worth a visit if you're there.

Great food but poor lighting...... Hard to see and "fake" candles not good light...... I knew there was only one bar but do they really have to hike up the prices that much????

The entree platter for 2 was delicious, the Outback Pizza (meat lovers choice) lacked topping content, mostly covered with cheese,
