This place is truly amazing. It is one of the best eateries in town which it means it is constantly busy. Despite that you will still get great service. The menu has about 100 items on it including breakfast, lunch and dinner style options, pizza, pasta, cafe and bistro style meals, and some options that I've never seen anywhere else. They also do takeaway and have a great selection of SA wines. There is simply something for eveyone here and the food is FANTASTIC. We ate here 3 times during our stay in Coober Pedy, had completely diiferent style meals every time but each time got great food and friendly efficient service. After the evening meals once the owner and once the manager ran us back to our motel. A must visit.

Over-rated.

This place has a load of awards and it's difficult to understand how from my experience there. Our food was edible, but bland and boring. No better than local pub food, maybe worse. So why so many awards and rave reviews? Is it because there is no competition for hundreds of kilometres. You don't have much choice but to eat around here. The atmosphere was uncharming, the lighting fluorescent, dated decore and unmemorable service and mediocre wine. I'd be happy living the rest of my life never eating at the establishment again.

We stayed in Coober Pedy for one night and ate two meals out. Both were at John's. The food was great. Lunch on the day that we left town I decided to order the shrimp scampi pizza. OMG, it was to die for. This place has great service and great food. Why go anywhere else?
