Basic cafe style seating. Staff were efficient and pleasant. Sadly food was pretty mediocre. Nothing bad about it but nothing good. Large portions but bland. It was cheap compared with other Alice restaurants. You get what you pay for!

Stopped long enough for a couple of drinks which were reasonably priced, but never had the chance to eat as they only had a small table tucked away for single diners. Not what I had in mind, so that's where we parted ways.

Loved our lunch here. Menu was extensive and reasonable priced. 6 of us all ordered something different and everything was good! Quick service. Local meeting place for a reason!

Recently had dinner here at sporties. Service was great, food was good but my partner ordered a meal with no chips. You'd think since he ordered just salad they would substitute no chips with more salad but they didn't. Drinks took a while to be...More

Desert Garden Hotel is a daytrip from Alice - return - not worth the travel for a meal. If you decide to stay in Alice for a few days, Sporties would be a good place for a meal - yes you can book and they will put some... More
