Dreadful service

Visited one quiet evening with my wife. Placed our order and 50 minutes and one bottle of wine later, we were still waiting for two prawn cocktails to appear. Given so few customers, there is no excuse for this woeful level of service. We left without eating!

This was a first for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Set just off the King's Road, this restaurant is a little oasis - the food was just right for a midweek meal and the service was excellent. I would definitely visit again.

I popped in for a quick lunch recently, ordered a calamari starter - which arrived dripping in oil, not very good at all. The main course battered sole (they told me they were out of Cod ) was a little odd - sole does not batter as well as the firmer fish (why offer this if you are out of... More

A very pleasant restaurant - well designed with good ambience. Excellent menu & I loved the Fish Pie which was as good as I have ever had . The wine list was sensibly priced & seemed to cover most tastes ; the service was a sole waitress who was very friendly & efficient with a staggering work ethic. This service... More

The service can be a bit slow but on the whole, judging from our several visits, Geales is well run and should not disappoint if you are looking for a straight-forward meal. The battered cod, chips and mushy peas are an English seaside classic and the starters - notably the herring - are fine. Geales is on the corner of... More

Pleased to see there was room to eat in this restaurant, as only 2 tables were taken. One solitary dinner and a table of 8 including children. There was only one waitress. We had to wait 3/4 hour for our starters - my crab salad (recommended by the waitress) had bits of shell and tasted of mayonnaise not much crab.... More

Went with a few colleagues and so glad we did! Everything was fantastic, shared a bunch of appetizers, the seafood platter was my favorite. Most had fish and chips but I went with the lobster tail burger and was very happy with my choice. A few bottles of great wine later we ended with the sticky toffee. A great meal... More
