We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner at the Arnguli Grill. Food was delicious and wait staff attentive and very polite. My husband highly enjoyed his steak and I really enjoyed the salmon.

Turning paying customers away from a half empty restaurant because they didn't have a booking is never a good look, Especially when its low season!

Hi adztek Thank you for sharing your review and providing us with the opportunity to respond your concerns. I would like to assure you that we never turn away guests if there is space available in the restaurant. While tables may have appeared to be unused they were in fact reserved for the evening ahead. I am sorry that we... More

Booked a table for dinner on advice from reception. It was my birthday so my wife chose a particular table. Got there at the appointed time after a sunset visit to The Rock. The table was taken but the restaurant was only 1/4 full! Who I assumed to be the manager of the day was non apologetic at all and... More

Nice friendly staff. Food good but not great! Expensive. Nice presentation. Nice airy dining room split into different areas. We only had the main course as we were going to the light show and they close to early even for the first trip!

Wow, this restaurant was amazing! It was still a little overpriced but compared to the other restaurants we actually felt we were getting excellent value for money. Our Waiter deserves a standing ovation he was amazing, excellent attention to detail, and he kept making sure that we were happy. His name was Sandi and I hope he gets recognition for... More

There aren't many places to eat at Yulara. The Arnguli Grill is one of the high end restaurants on the resort, specialising in making the most of 'tucker' food. The result is OK - not great, but OK. We took the kangaroo steak and the vegetable tart. Both fine, but certainly nothing to rave about; a little lacking in flavour,... More

My husband and I ate here for dinner after walking base walk. Food options were plentiful amd after mentioning only on passing that my husband had a nut allergy and that I was pregnant our attentive waiter Ajay instructed the kitchen to make substitutes to our ordered items to accomodate our special dietary needs. We were very grateful as the... More

Went to arnguli for dinner last night. Had a lovely time. Servings are. Wet generous. Try the arnguli oysters for entree (amazingly fresh considering so far inland) and the kangaroo fillet for dinner. Generous servings. All mains were quite large. Snapper also lovely, and lamb rack looked great. Friendly and attentive staff. Thank you to Nicole, who greeted us, and... More
