Overlanders Steakhouse

The Overlanders Steakhouse at 72 Hartley Street, Alice Springs is an Australiana-Themed eating establishment. It is decorated with heavy timber, galvanised iron and plenty of knick-knacks reminiscent of outback Australia and the cattle industry. The table service was friendly and efficient and the food was good grill standard and included specialties such as Kangaroo, Emu, Crocodile and Camel. At more than $30 for a main course this was an expensive restaurant but there was no silver service here in keeping with the rustic Australian theme.

The hot chocolate cost six dollars and was presented in mug topped with cream with a sprinkle of cocoa in the style of a Vienna chocolate. Your reviewer has tasted better Vienna hot chocolates. The good ones have rich chocolate flavour and are not sweet because the whipped cream usually provides this sweetness. This one was a milk chocolate flavour.
