“Interesting menu”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

Offers a varied menu of Australian specialties eg kangaroo, camel, barramundi, crocodile though if you want to try all a fairly expensive package. Service varies from excellent to fair, as expected when many are young travelers. Overall good atmosphere and good food.

“We are glad we made you SMILE"

Thank you for your review of The Red Ochre and also experiencing our signature Taste Of The Outback platter.

The menu is a selection of both Australian Native and contemporary cuisine, little bit like the staff who you may have noticed are a selection of Australian, French, British and German.

Kindest regards

“We are glad we made you SMILE"

Thank you for your overall compliments from what appears to be a regular Alice Springs local who dines regularly in The Red Ochre. Your opinion is held in highest regard as it is not given from a one off visit but what seems to be many visits which we take as a fair overall assessment. I will certainly be passing on your review to all the staff.

Yes unfortunately like most businesses in Alice Springs we do have a turn over of casual staff but with the ongoing training provided by our permanent staff we hope we provide consistency most of the time.

The daily lunch special for $13 is varied regularly by our chefs as possible future items on our next menus.

Kindest regards

“Wonderful Eating Experience, Representing the Flavors of Australia.”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

Wonderful eating experience! The service was great, and a wonderful coversation with our (French) waitress. Enjoyed the terrace eating atmosphere, where we could watch the "city life" outside unfold before our eyes. The mix sampler platter of kangaroo, camel, Baramundi, and crocodile gave me just what I wanted in being able to try tasting all these flavors in just one meal, and the price was quite reasonable. The quantity was sufficient enough to allow my wife to also sample from my plate. Overall, a really enjoyable eating experience!

Thank you for a tremendous review, I can't tell you how pleased to get a review like yours as your explanation of what we provided is what we consistently strive for in creating a dining experience at The Red Ochre.

We may not get it correct all the time but we certainly don’t stop trying.
