good places to eat


I was wondering where are the best places to eat in Alice... not high end, just good value for money, maybe somewhere hat has meal deals or specials on certain nights. We are staying in Alice for 3 days then off for a week, then back for a night before heading off again. Thanks :)

For a fairly standard meal, with nightly specials, Todd Tavern, Gillen Club, Sporties and the RSL will tick the box.

For a nice lunch or brunch, bit more expensive but quirky, Page 27, Watertank and Olive Pink are all very nice.

Nice to see someone spending more than 1 night in Alice - enjoy your time, there's plenty to see and do.

Hi soobee4,

I agree with I'madesertgirl,

It’s great to see you are here for more than one day.

Sporties have a great range of food including signature dishes like the Spicy Barramundi, Steak Gambari and Beef and Bugs being the most popular. Located at the Northern end of Todd Mall.

The Todd Tavern is an old time favourite, with very cheap, pub style meals, basically, a minutes’ walk further north along Todd St.

You also get what you pay for, but if you want value for money, try the RSL.

My last recommendation is actually the Gillen Club.

To be honest, we have rarely found the food here, to be of a good quality- most of the time.

Although it is always busy and popular with almost all of the locals, prices will reflect the quality of dishes.
