Reviewed 1 August 2014

Ate at the Red Ochre Grill while in Alice for work and staying at the Aurora Hotel. Nice easy walk down from our room to dinner with a friend. I tried the corned beef which was good and my fellow diner tried the Pork belly which was excellent. Restaurant was busy but we were give a choice of tables when we visited without a reservation. Service was good. We were too full to try the desserts but they looked interesting, so will try another night. A couple of good glass of wine complimented a good meal.

“Underwhelmed to say least”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Was looking forward to tasting some Australian delicacy with interstate friend who we were taking out as a thank you was left disappointed overall by our experience live bug in entree. Took over 5 mins to attract attention of waitress to have meal removed. My view of the bar was not enjoyed by staring at a mountain of used dirty glasses awaiting to be cleaned for the entire duration off evening. Everything I touched was sticky including menu. Over priced chefs salad drowned in heavy mayonnaise and ham was something out of a packet you could purchase better at local store. Plus they did deduct a meal ofF our bill and waitress was nice. Will not return and certainly not recommend.

“Expired And Rotten Food”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We visit Alice Springs in July 2014 and had dinner at the Red Ochre Restaurant, Alice Springs which was great and the waitress was extremely happy and helpful HOWEVER when we went for breakfast the next morning; The fruit was old, pineapple past it due by date and the watermelon was off, the bread felt as though it was a week old and there were two cockroaches around the toaster !!! I squashed the roaches and left under a plate then told the waitress (to a reply was "is that all")....
I approached the waitress and asked for fresh fruit, she went away for a bit and came back with a male from the kitchen, who took the top two bits of melon and pineapple off the serving plate and left the rest of the rotten fruit there. I decided not to have any breakfast at the Red Ochre and to grab something up the road.........
Because our accommodation included breakfast, we returned to the Red Ochre the next morning as well to see if anything had changed, but NO, it looked like the same melon and Pineapple were still there !!! not good at all !!!
