Ouch! $38 a six pack or beer and $41 for the cheapest bottle of wine really hurts for takeaway when you are camping. Unfortunately this is the only option inside Uluru. The service was friendly enough and the sit in prices were back to normal...More

We bought our protein and while it was cooking chose from the excellent selection of salads and some vegetables. The fish had been prepared nicely with lemon and dill and it was a lovely way to eat that evening.

While we didn't sample the food, the drinks from the bar were good, if a little pricey! Friendly service from all staff behind the bar and at the Pioneer kitchen -- more fast- food style.
