Love coming to this casual restaurant because they allow you to bring your dog to the outdoor area. Food is of a good quality and reasonable value for money. The staff are always very friendly and make you feel very welcome. There was a slight glitch with my meal this time but they offered a complimentary dessert or glass of wine and a full refund. Well done!

One thing they could do to be totally unique in Alice Springs and attract more people on the weekend would be to have a "doggie menu". We would totally shout our wee one lunch if it was around $10 for a special made doggie food (meat loaf?), love that they bring a bowl of water out for the wee one!

"We are glad we made you SMILE"

Thank you for your review and suggestion.

We do not promote dogs in the courtyard of our restaurant for obvious reasons, not all dogs are well behaved like yours so we suggest that patrons take a table fronting the Todd Mall and tie their dogs up to the outside front fence, we are always happy to supply the drinking water.

Kindest regards

Dined at this restaurant for breakfast. Asked the waiter in they had ribs on the dinner menu, said they did and he had to go out and source some from the butcher and said if we were keen for dinner he would look after us. We went back for dinner and our plates had double the amount of ribs on them. Great service prob the best choice in town.

A variety of meals, local and other. Rafael the waiter was pleasant and helpful. Food was fresh, ambience was good, and location perfect. Drinks were cold and you could dine inside or out. Specials made it affordable, so all in all very good value for money. They make pretty good coffee also.

For those wishing to try a variety of Australian foods they have a comprehensive menu that includes kangaroo, emu and crocodile. For those who are not so adventurous they also offer mainstream alternatives. Our meals we beautifully presented and tasted as good as they looked served by friendly staff. Thank-you for a lovely night.
