“Lovely Food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

I was very pleasantly surprised with this find tucked away in Todd Mall. Most of the eateries in Alice Springs are fast food or pub food, so it was nice to find somewhere that offered a varied menu of good quality, fresh and appealing food. The restaurant is nicely set out with a lovely courtyard to relax and dine in in as well as the option to dine inside. On a 43 degree day it was lovely to relax with a gin and tonic under the vine. The lunch specials are all tasty and great value. A good selection of dinner options with pasta, lamb shank, pork ribs, variety of steaks, barramundi and kangaroo, all with fresh veg, mash or chips. A good selection of wines too. We shared the prawns to start which were lovely, then I had the barramundi fillet on cous cous with tomato salsa and my husband had the pumpkin & pancetta pasta, both of which were delicious and good portion sizes. The meals are all around $30/$36, but I felt were worth the money. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. I would recommend a visit.

“Surprise in the Red Center..”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

One doesn't expect much when visiting a town like Alice Springs, therefore was quite surprised arriving with a group of 30 people to that restaurant, located more or less in the town's center.

The attitude of the staff has been the major impression. Attentive and efficient. Food was decent as well, taking into consideration that there is not much choice of restaurants in such a location.

All in all most of the group members were quite happy with what they got, therefore the relative
high rating.

“Good Aussie Tucker”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

This restaurant in heart of Todd Mall is attached to the Aurora Hotel and open 7 days for breakfast, lunch & dinner. The Air con was a welcome relief from the heat of Alice, the drinks were well chilled and food most enjoyable. The theme here is good Australian food and the Kangaroo Burger I had for lunch was certainly worth having. Service was friendly and efficient.

“Back to Red Ochre”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

Staying in Hotel "Aurora" since 18 pm, we visited the town center to find a restaurant and at least came back to Red Ochre for the attractive "special offer" (39 $).
Dinner was perfect with a classic service, but expensive for only a plate.
