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.

Beautiful pizza, one of the best I've had anywhere let alone in the middle of nowhere, outstanding coffee and quick service. It's definitely worth stopping off at for a break on a long drive, it's the best restaurant on the Stuart highway.

This is such a popular and iconic spot in Coober Pedy. It was so busy the night we came here it took us nearly an hour to get our take away order. We will certainly return here before moving on. The prices may be a...bit on the high side but the service and quality of the food is worth it. This is a stop not to be missed.More

My wife and I spent the last couple of days in Coober Pedy and ate both nights at Johns pizza bar in the Main Street. We were served by a beautiful friendly young lady called Sophie. It always nice to be greeted by someone so...upbeat. We ordered pizza which was exceptional. The service by Sophie was also exceptional and because of her I can’t recommend the place enough!!More

We decided to have dinner at this establishment and found there was adequate seating available to dine in. We decided to have pizza and there was a good selection available. When we placed our order we found out that there was no garlic bread left...which was a shame. The pizzas were hot and delicious, the staff were friendly and helpful and the table service was excellent.More

When we would mention Coober Pedy we would often have someone advising us to visit John's Pizza Bar and Restaurant, if you believe the advertising they have the best pizzas in Australia. Of course we had to make a point of visiting and we did...that today for lunch. The pizza menu is quite extensive, I think most people would find something they could choose, there are also other food options if pizza is not your thing. After a very thorough assessment of the pizzas we have to say they are pretty damn good, the crust was particularly to our liking and the topping tasty. The service was also very good, you were acknowledged if you were waiting and there always seemed to be someone to come and help you. The pricing was good for both food and drinks. xxMore
