Remarquable service and amazing food (with generous portion), the new management is obviously on top of it. Special mention for the pesto risotto! Warmly recommended.

Thank you for your review. I do have to agree with you on the risotto - it is particularly delicious. We look forward to welcoming you back.

I must say the waiter was lovely... the wine was nice... then it stops. 90 minute wait which is fine if it's good. Food was horrible. Chips were frozen, fish was dry, salad was lettuce.

Thank you for your review Ro C. I must apologise for the meal that you received whilst dining recently in our restaurant. There is no excuse for the delay or the food. We have gone over the review with our restaurant and kitchen staff.

Poor choice and expensive in comparison to nearby hotel restaurant. Continental breakfast consisted of limited cereal options, toast. instant coffee and over ripe bananas for $12.5 !

For the remoteness of Alice Springs, this restaurant serves very fresh seafood and vegetables. Not sure if the food would win any awards in Sydney, but in Alice, Sunaraas is a must stop in for a nice meal in Alice Springs.

Great views, good food, a little disorganised and flustered staff. Nice spot for pre dinner drink and wind down.

Went here for a birthday dinner. The service is reasonable although a little slow for how dead it was. There were six of us on my table and only 2 other couples dining, I think we waited about 30minutes or so for our food. However...More
