Had dinner here two nights after roughing it in the outback, was pleasant surprise to find this top class restaurant.
Leo the chef did an excellent job cooking our meals from the scallops and bruschetta to the salmon, lamb backstrap and polenta with grilled vegetables. Every course was perfectly cooked and full of flavor. Highly recommended

Had two nights in Coober pedy and overheard the main chef saying how this restaurant is the go to place so decided to check it out, despite having to pay well over $100 for two main dishes and a drink I thought I was a bit hungry and ordered a starter.

Drinks range was good and waiters were fast to take order, Scallops came out cold and when I asked wait staff if this is normal they checked with chef who says that’s how it’s supposed to be... weird.

I order the barramundi and kitchen sends me the salmon, when I bring this to chefs attention they tried to bring the plate off my table and take it back when he realised his mistake, I said don’t worry about it it’s too late the manager apologised and said it’s not the first time this chef had done this! wife said the steak was good which is what I should’ve got!!

Despite being disappointed eating the wrong meal I watched same main
chef walk table to table checking all tables telling anyone who would listen how great his food is and completely ignored our table obviously didn’t want to acknowledge any problem had occurred very disappointing!!

Nothing better than picking up an amazing beer collection at Cooper Pedy. After a long day on the road, coming to rest with a good a quality meal before bed is an absolute gift.
Looking forward to returning for a holiday as seeing some amazing opals.
