Ordered a small Margueita pizza and the Aussie burger plus Coopers pale ale. The pizza was disgusting, totally inedible. The cheese was tough with a texture like play dough and little if any tomato, on an equally tough pizza base. The burger, beef, bacon and...More

We were in Coober Pedy some years ago and ever since have been hanging out for another steak from John's so first night here that's what we had and were really disappointed. They were cooked as ordered but tasted almost off and were obviously cooked...More

This restaurant gets good ratings so we needed to try it - but I think we chose badly.... We are marguerita eaters as we think this should be the best pizza made on the place - and you can't go wrong with the basics. However,...More

Absolutely Bellissimo! Generous topping and serving size. Taste great and other selections available if you don't want pizza. Good value for budget conscious and alcohol also available. Friendly service. The flies can be annoying but that's a given in the outback unfortunately.

We ordered the large pizza - it was definately that! We had two types on the one base, it was served hot, it was delicious and we even had some for lunch the next day.

The place to go for italian food. The pizza was great and the base tasted fantastic. Not an extraordinary pizza but everything was just right and good value. Next time I'll try the Code of Arms pizza with, yes you guessed it, Emu and Kangaroo.

The staff were friendly and they had a good selection of wines as well as other alcoholic beverages. The food was nice and there was plenty of space to sit. They also have outdoor seating.

The number of diners in this place is a good indication of its popularity. The menu has plenty of options and the food was both tasty and reasonably priced. A nice clean place to eat.

Our accommodation recommended John pizza bar so we decided to check it out. We weren't disappointed. The moment you walk in you're hit with the smells of fresh dough, warm oven and a friendly atmosphere. I'm a vegetarian and really like that there was more...More

More cafe style than restaurant (The Barbecue Inn Underground is really the only restaurant in Coober Pedy). It is licensed with a limited list of good beers and wines. This is the place toy eat if you want good food and good value. Often busy....More
