Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Believe it or not but the kangaroo striploin I had at this place is one of the best meals I ever had……in Australia. The meat cooked to a perfect medium rare. The veggies had a snap to them and very good taste. The service was...very sweet but could be improved upon.More

The food generally tasted okay (the ribs were undercooked), but the size of the portions is different from what you would expect for the prices and location! $49 for half a slab of ribs and $46 for one petite fish filet! The appraiser, salt and...pepper squid, which cost $24, consisted of 6 squid and take-away chips. We end up paying $161 for two cocktails ($20 each), a bottle of sparkling water, two mains and one appetiser! It looks like the restaurant does not care about returning patrons, as most customers are tourists staying in the hotel. I suggest that management checks the prices and meal sizes in Alice Casino. Shame, as it was a good restaurant with a great menu, with value for money.More

First of all I would like to appreciate Octa for looking after us with your great service. We really enjoyed our dinner last night with delicious food. One of my favourite dish was Baramundi and Green Apple salad it was the showstopper last night.

After a 12 month pause from eating at the Barra on Todd we decided to go see if it had improved Unfortunately not Ordered deep fried barramundi and chips only to be served a pre battered peice of god only knows what It was dry...tasteless and when we told staff that wasn’t barramundi she said oh ok Manager came out told him the same only to be brushed off No one really cared about misleading the public about what they are serving What a shame Definitely won’t be giving this place any more chancesMore

Ate here a few times over the past week. The food was exceptional. The barramundi was succulent and the scotch fillet melted in your mouth. The service was outstanding and we could not fault this restaurant in any way.

My wife and I had a pleasant meal after a five day Larapinta walk. The food was of good quality and ambience (although not a huge number of diners) was welcoming. The staff were great, from the bar to the table wait staff. I was...a a little bit of a walk from our accommodation but that was okay as we had been doing plenty for the few days beforehand.More

We really enjoyed the dinner at this restaurant. As the restaurant specialises in Barramundi (farmed), we chose two of the barra dishes and they were great. They were expensive at $45 but the serves were generous attractively presented and my vegetables crunchy.

Food and service was great. We would definitely come back. Would recommend the lamb back strap, Penang prawns & the honey mustard rack of lamb special.

As we were staying in the hotel we came here twice, once for breakfast and once for dinner. The breakfast - standard buffet - was, to be honest, dreadful, as well as being overpriced. There are much better options in town. Two stars at best....The dinner was pretty good - but note that you have to book: even if you are staying here they will cheefully turn you away, and with the current issues in Alice that could be a big problem for you.More

I’ve been coming to the Barra on Todd since October 2014. It used to be the best A La Carte restaurant in Alice Springs. It is not any more. Just as it was getting back on its feet after being a quarantine facility during the...pandemic, I understand that the restaurant is under new management. While I cannot fault the friendly and professional service, it’s core business - FOOD - leaves a lot to be desired. The menu has been slashed and what’s served is very average indeed. As all of the good things I enjoy have been removed, tonight I had to settle for a lousy, tasteless, badly cooked steak followed by an equally tasteless cheesecake. So disappointing. I doubt that I’ll return.More

It used to be the best place in town for a steak. Now it’s an okay steak but massively overpriced. Disappointed and not likely to return.

We both enjoyed our meal. I had the Lamb back straps & vegetables. They were delicious, tender & perfectly cooked. My husband had Duck l’Orange also very tasty. For dessert we had Pannacotta & ice cream and Fresh fruit salad & icecream, both delicious. Service...was friendly & efficient and the ambience of the restaurant was relaxed & comfortable. Would definitely recommend.More
