Description: Local favourite Geales is an old-fashioned fish and chip restaurant which has been frying up its simple, delicious seafood dishes for over 68 years. The subdued décor adds a hint of Notting Hill glamour to this otherwise straightforward restaurant, but it's the fish that everyone has come for. Specials come fresh from Devon and Cornwall, and there are plenty of favourites such as dressed crab, salmon and leek fishcakes and oysters straight from the bar.

Must say to start with that the food was very good. Best fish and chips ive had for a long time in a proper restaurant. But it is slightly overpriced and the waiters/manager and service is below par for what it wants to be. They forgot the guests next to us, although veru busy but they waited almost 45 min... More

My family and I (4 of us) were shown to our seats very quickly, the seats were comfortable, the restaurant was very clean and we were served very quickly. We had starters which were generous portions. The main meal we ordered was the classic fish and chips, hake, cod etc which were very fresh, chips were fluffy on the inside... More

If you are in London and want a delicious meal prepared by a chef who clearly cares about serving only the best and freshest food, go to Geales in Nottingham Hill. You will not be disappointed. The service was great and the food excellent. The "starter" salads were huge, fresh and dressed with a light hand. The restaurant is known... More

My partner and I had a great time at Geales in Notting Hill yesterday. The food was amazing, my partner had fish and chips, I had the lobster linguine and we shared a sticky toffee pudding for dessert. All delicious. Compliments to the chef. Lovely restaurant in a great location.

We went to Geales last week after a 6 year break. 6 years ago I went with some friends and the service was dreadful. Surely after all this time it might be better - but no!!! I had to ask 4 times for a drink, the table either side of ours were not cleared after the diners left so we... More

I am visiting UK having been resident here in the past and Geales was always a favorite of mine. Dining there for lunch today with friends upon my recommendation I was appalled at our meal - very ordinary platter style entrees and a heavily battered cod and chips the quality of which being way below what one would expect.

Food very yummy but all you can hear whilst trying to eat are some yelling chefs from the kitchen shouting for waiters, so short staffed also its ridiculous, waited for ages for someone to take our order, the chef noise topped off the whole experience as awful. Never again!

My wife and I recently had a late lunch on a Friday at Geales and it was thoroughly enjoyable. My haddock was moist - properly cooked in other words - and the batter was both thin and crisp. Wonderful, a real treat. A carafe of chenin blanc was an excellent accompaniment.
