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.

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 !

This restaurant is expensive for where it is and for the average level of customer service that one experiences. However, with great views of the Ranges and a high standard of meal presentation, I would recommend that you bite the bullet and pay the bill, at least once, as you'll be supporting local business, providing employment and you'll be glad...

Went to Sunaraas with some friends from work, fantastic location, great views out of the big windows.. Get a table by the window! Food was great! I had the lamb rack which was cooked perfectly, price a little high but still quite good for Alice. I must say our waitress is in need some some customer service lessons, she was... More

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.

My work mates and I chose the Christmas buffet for our Christmas breakup. The staff weren't great, they forgot to bring out the cheese platters until after we had all eaten. The food was okay, I was very surprised that there was no gravy to go with the roast meats. The desserts were fantastic!! The restaurant is quite beautiful.

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 the drinks and food were good. I enjoyed the pork chop but the pork was... More

Hadn't been to the restaurant for a number of years and was pleasantly surprised. The meal was cooked to perfection, the staff were helpful and the atmosphere was great. This was helped with the live music, not a regular occurrence, they had been hired for a birthday party. Apart from the fact they had no coffee the experience very nice,... More

Dined here with work colleagues. 5 of 7 meals were extremely salty and when a polite comment was made to management we had a very rude response. After tasting one of the meals she said that she yes it was salty but palatable... and surely all our meals weren't salty and that we were'feeding off each other'. Worst restaurant experience...
