The food was good- we enjoyed the bar facilities and lounge area which are all of a good standard. The outside balcony was dominated by smokers so that precluded dinner outside

This has to be the worst meal we have had since commencing our trip 6 weeks ago. They claimed the truck had not arrived to restock. 80% of the menu was unavailable. This left us buying from 3 items on the specials menu which obviously had been designed based on the ingredients they had left.

You don't wander into the ELDO in Woomera by accident. There isn't anywhere else for an evening meal and unless it is an overnighter then you are likely there for a while. The restaurant is part of a bar complex. It is set in late 60's (early 70's) decor. It is cute. The view from the balcony is at best... More

Good selection of food on offer but it is expensive. $24.50 for a Caesar Salad was over the top and not worth it. I'll assume there's only one chef on site because our meals took for ever and a medium cooked steak came to me as a charred piece of leather that I couldn't finish. $34 poorer for the experience....

In the middle of nowhere is a knockout of an oasis Len Beadells history abounds. Although this is still a military base there is plenty to interest visitors. Restaurant and limited supplies available.

The wine was good. The staff were pleasant. But two meals ordered at 7:14pm had not arrived by 8:20. Yes, they were busy and we were not the only ones to be delayed. Asked for a refund and was given it without question.

We stopped here for dinner on an overnight stay in Woomera. The bar staff were ok but the food was incredibly overpriced and fairly average. The restaurant waitress was lovely though and told us quite a bit about the history of the restaurant.

I order a pork cutlet with sweet potato mash and crispy sweet potato chips. The pork was very nicely cooked and the plating also added to the appeal. Complemented by a pint of Cooper Pale ale it made for a very pleasant meal indeed.
