This has proven to be our best meal experience while in the Red Centre. We stayed at several resorts in the National Oark, but found this experience to be the very best. Food was carefully and professionally produced to a high standard with pride by the chef, who cooked just to one side of the dinning area. Service was attentive... More

We could not fault the service we were given. It was difficult to believe we were in the outback as the food was amazing. There were only 4 couples present and the tables were set up around a fire pit. The dinner was expensive but worth it.

We dined in the restaurant and had a lovely meal. It was nice to see native ingredients in the meals. Service was efficient, if a little too fast.

Fantastic value for money. Amazing 5 course meal served with matching wines. The incorporation of Australian bush foods into all of the dishes helped make this a great dinning experience. The explanation/description of each course provided by Shelley was very detailed and presented to each table individually. The chefs came out at the end of the meal and were very... More

Vegetarian option request made a week before did not get passed on to the chef, which was disappointing. However, chef did quite well for last minute notification. We only had 4 people, so truly an intimate experience. There was a bit too much music and light to truly appreciate the stars (better from our little verandah), but we had a... More

We swagged at the campground and had experienced average to poor food at the resorts other eating venues and had set our expections accordingly. We were totally blown away by the quality of the food, the attentive chef and the lovely waitress who looked after us. The set is beautiful with an open fire, torches flickering in the dark and...

Worth a try we thought on our visit to Kings Canyon and this well and truly exceeded our expectations. Shelley our hostess was excellent. Attentive, friendly and explained the dishes well.
