Went here for our last night dinner with our tour group, had the best time. Had a lovely meal and then they took the tables away and the place turned into a nightclub. We partied until early hours, we had a great night out

Very casual for lunch on a Saturday in early April. Only one person handling the bar and tables when we were there, and she did remarkably well considering it was her second day on the job. I had the Barra Burger (fried Barramundi) and chips (steak fries in the U.S.), and it hit the spot! My wife had the gluten-free... More

It was actually really nice. The service was friendly and fast. We ordered two steaks a Parma and a burger with a round of drinks and it came in under $100. Music in the background was great just the old time stuff that we enjoyed.

We dropped in for a quick lunch. Excellent food at a good price Had to ask the waitress to hurry up and get our order as we had a tour to meet up with. Food came quickly and was fresh. Would gladly return. Had chicken parmigiana with a fresh salad- not iceberg but assorted greens.

I ordered kangaroo "bloody" and I got it too much done. They offer it medium rare, what is too much for this delicious meat. The price was very good,15 aud, but the quality not that good unfortunately. Very disappointing...

Nice pub/bar where everyone who did the Uluru tour go to have a beer and talk. They have great meals (veggies one also) for a fair price. But the music was too loud! I couldn't hear the person seated right next to me. Despite of that, they have an outside area that is very nice and fresh, where you can... More

Nice place to hangout with the tour group after spending the past few nights "roughing" it out in the outback. The meals are only $10-15 so fantastic value for money, and they have drinks on special too! I was told that they do their kangaroo steak well so tried that and found it wasn't quite medium rare but it wasn't... More

For the price the barramundi was good. Fast service. Music choice is great but a bit load for me . Seems to be popular with the tradies.

Looking for somewhere different to eat in Alice Springs came across this place. It was early in the evening and almost empty but the menu looked interesting. It looked more like a bar rather than eating place but we enjoyed two of the best meals we had in Australia and even though they charged for the water it was still... More

Even after 3 days of eating only canned tuna I am not over-reacted with my rate.. We came to Alice Springs just for a lunch from outback an it was simply delicious. We had kangaroo (the best I've ever had), really nice homemade beef burger, rump steak and chicken parma. Everything was big enough and tasty. When they made a... More
