An absolutely fabulous experience. We have dark black skies in Spain,but nothing like being in the middle of nowhere and seeing stars of the other side of the world. Thoroughly recommend the trip, although like other trips..they are extremely expensive. Excellent food. Very enjoyable.
This dinner is a must do for anyone traveling to Ayers Rock. The evening begins with canapes, champagne, and a didgeredoo performance! Dinner under the stars is breathtaking and the food is delicious!
Great evening out under the stars. Considering where you are (ie in the desert) the food is fine and the service good. Beautiful sunset views. Well organised tour.
What a great experience in the land of awe and wonder in a setting that would be hard pressed to compete with. THANK YOU

An absolutely amazing experience, if you get the chance to do this, do not miss it!!
This is a must do. Perfectly run. Top quality. What a unique experience.
The Sounds of Silence Restaurant was a wonderful experience. Highly recommended. The location in the desert with a view of Ulura, the great food and wines, and also the lovely people who were at the table we joined, all made it a memorable evening. The astronomer's talk and the viewing of Saturn through his telescope capped off a great event. Highly recommended.
Absolutely fantastic! Worth every penny and then some! I have many food allergies and they were able to direct me to what I was able to eat which was a lot! The on-site chef phoned his head chef to double check three times and never made me feel like it was a problem. HE wanted to be sure! That care is something special and I appreciated it!
Mike the star man was superb. His show was outstanding and he readily shared his knowledge with one and all even after the main story-telling. A small group of us were talking for a long time by the telescopes after he showed us the rings of Saturn! Incredible. I never imagined that I would see that!
We had a birthday girl at our table and as we sang her Happy Birthday, the waiters surprised us all with a platter of small yummy treats and a beautifully chocolate written note. That was above and beyond!
The staff was very caring, fun and attentive. The bus driver was jovial and punctual. Shannon, our head waiter, was on top of every need anyone had.
The appetizers were plentiful as was the beverages offered as we watched sunset listening to our cute diji player. The rest of the wait staff was efficient and friendly. It truly was a once in a lifetime experience! I am so glad I went!!!!

Hands down an incredible experience. We had perfect clear weather which makes it that much better as your there for sunset and stargazing. Food was good too. Start to finish a fun and enchanting night.
From the moment we stepped off the bus, the service was excellent, the venue sublime and the food and wine reaaly good. Our fun and enthusiastic astronomer added to a perfrect night.
Champayne on arrival, then had great finger food followed by a short walk in the desert to the tables. Staff were great, food was delicious, free flowing alcohol was nice and the start show was brilliant including using the telescopes.
This tour exceeded all our expectations. One would think that in the outback of Australia there would be inevitable hickups but everything went smoothly. A perfect evening.
We thoroughly enjoyed this dinner. To watch the sun set at Ayers Rock with champagne and appetizers, a lovely dinner while meeting fellow travelers from Australia and around the world and then stories of the constellations under the night sky was a wonderful way to start our Australian vacation.
WOnderful evening, really worth the money. The drinks and canapes watching the sunset were lovely, dinner was great. The sky was so clear we could see so many stars and the star talk was done in a really interesting way. The didj player was also fantastic. One of the best experiences of our holiday.
The sounds of silence dinner was amazing and a really nice way to finish our holiday. We met some really great people. The views of Uluru were awesome - so glad I took my camera! Dinner once again was great. The canapes at the beginning gave us a chance to try some things that we never had before. I would highly recommend this dinner.
This event was cancelled due to bad weather. We received a document as proof. I plan to call and submit it for refund.
A definite must for any traveller to Uluru (Ayers Rock) - no need to worry if it is cold as they have heaters over the tables. We went in June and it was perfect!
Something different and worth the money even thought the night was cloudy and we didn't experience the beautiful sunset or see the stars. The food, staff, and general atmosphere was wonderful.
The experience was amazing!Given that we were in the middle of nowhere and the Sounds of Silence people have a bit of a monopoly, I was anticipating the food and service to be mediocre. However, both were top notch. The food and wine were DELICIOUS (with more-than-generous portion sizes), and the service was as good as any top end restaurant in Sydney. The waitstaff were incredibly friendly, and the other 'performers' (the digeridoo player and star-talker) both put on excellent dinnertime entertainment.
And of course the views, sunset and AMAZING stars were all breathtaking - we had a view of both Uluru and the Olgas for the sunset, so could not have asked for anything more. In terms of the stars, not only were were they shown to us in an interesting and straightforward manner but the telescopes that were provided made a great added bonus.
Finally, my two friends and I missed the transportation provided from the resort to the restaurant site due to pure disorganization. When we arrived at reception, almost 10 minutes late, the person at the resort simply rang someone up who promptly picked us up in a 4x4 to take us to the site - no fuss, no complaints, no stress and (if you can believe it) with a smile. Honestly - you wouldn't get that kind of service in Sydney!
The overall experience was, without question, my favorite part of my trip to the Red Centre. I couldn't be more satisfied with the service provided.
Totally an amazing experience! We had a fantastic view of Uluru for the sunset (and the Olgas on the far end) and greeted with a nice sparkling wine to enjoy the moment. The dinner was scrumptious, and features outback delicacies like crocodile, kangaroo, but all cooked in gourmet fashion.. The tour of the stars was magical! We got to visually see the constellations when it was clearly pointed out with a bright-beam torch by the guide on the clear night sky! The wait staff were really attentive and service was 5-star! It can be a pricey dinner, but for the experience you get, it was all worth doing!
