“best linguini and Calamri”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

This was by far the best Restaurant in all the outback towns we have experienced. The best Matrie DI. I had the seafood linguini, my partner had the Calamari, expertly prepared in central Australia! of all places. International staff were very well spoken and a delight to talk with. The owner, George was absolutely amazing and welcoming and more than just a restauranteur. Very exceptional and unique atmosphere with genuine care and concern that our meal was of an exceptional standard along with our culinary experience in this 'out of the ordinary' town founded on opals. The best host who deserves 5 stars for hospitality, for the warn welcoming, food and atmosphere. Nothing else in the world could compare for such a satisfying all round and out of the ordinary pleasure this experience proved to be. Great and appreciated value for the quality of our dollar, a taste not to be ignored when traveling to Coober Pedy in the Outback. If you are traveling here, this is a treat you will never experience anywhere else in the world for all the eloquent essentials when dining out. Another hidden treasure in this fascinating outback town. Make this a priority in your travels.

“Great underground restaurant George! You're so nice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

I loved your restaurant, your warm greeting and the lovely meal I had. It was a work trip and visited this restaurant with another worker. We both loved our meals and the host was so pleasant and cheerful, despite the on and off power black out due to the floods that Coober Pedy had that week. They put many candles on our table and nothing was too hard. It's quiet underground and doesn't echo horribly like some places with hard floors and walls. I will definitely come here again. Thank you for the lovely experience and that special ice-cream!

“Great food, wonderful host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant on recommendation by the underground motel and we were certainly not disappointed. This is by far the best restaurant in Coober Pedy. All 4 meals were excellent, our friend who had a steak said it was one of the best meals he had ever had. We had a lot of laughs with George, the owner & he even drove us home after dinner. Great customer service.
