The food was good (although a little pricey), the ambiance was very good and the staff were friendly. However, this may be the slowest service on the planet. Setting up the bar and table place settings appeared to be a priority. When the wait staff finally approached, they should have warned us that it would be a while before the food arrived from the kitchen. The restaurant probably was understaffed and the kitchen seemed a long way off. More than one trip to the restaurant produced the same result.

Dear The2TravelingFools,
Thank you for your review.
It is concerning to hear that you received slow service on more than one occasion at Walpa Lobby Bar and I would like to express my apologies. This does not reflect our usual standards of service and I assure you I will address your comments with the Director of Food and Beverage to ensure the team are prioritising guests over other tasks.

Kind regards

Ambience was lovely. Service was mixed - (ignored at first as they thought setting up behind the bar was more of a prority for them than acknowledging our presence)then got some great service from a new member of staff on shift.
Wine list was extensive, and plenty of great selections by the glass.
Snack size burgers were tasty but a little pricey at $24.

This is a great spot to retreat to after a fully day of activities in and around Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park. We ate at the Lobby Bar several times over our five day stay at the resort and it offers easy and satisfying eating options with an interesting wine and drinks list. Fun, quick and super convenient!

All three restaurants are side by side in the same large space. The Walpa Lobby bar is at the bar end with the bigger Ilkari in the centre busy with diners moving around the buffet. We ordered kangaroo from the grill and a very tasty pumpkin salad. Perfect. Service friendly and efficient.

Once again wonderful food, bit expensive but having said that a generous portion potatoes wedges enough for two people.
