Wedding anniversary supper

Excellent food. Good environment. Attentive although somewhat disorganised service. Used to go to Geales regularly over ten years ago. They have maintained quality and still a good experience.

Ordered 2 Fish & Chips and Seafood platter. Expected to be served traditional fish and chips, the fish in its original shape which is long-when our order was served we were wondering and thinking how could that be a fish, it was like 2 oversize meatballs and thickly battered. Fish inside were cooked to perfection ( moist and succulent) but... More

We tried Geales for the first time on Valentine's and we both had a lovely evening. The restaurant itself is on a quiet little back road and had a very cosy/intimate/romantic feel. The restaurant itself looked much smarter in the evening (with dim lighting) than the photos of the website, but it still feels relaxed. The valentine's menu wasn't their... More

Once the undisputed king of fish and chips in West London (ok residents of Lisson Grove might dispute that) but certainly for decades Geales was faultless. Sadly no longer the case based on the visit I paid this week. And I mean the food - cod and chips - was the problem. The chips, once hand-cut and home-made, now appear... More

A cleaned up version of the corner pubs you see everywhere, but with MUCH better Fish and Chips, and with very friendly and responsive service. I liked this place a lot and thinks it deserves a better rating than it is getting, at least based on my first visit. I live in the neighborhood and will continue to try and... More

The fish was incredibly fresh and the chips fantastically cooked. Service is good and the staff is really attentive and professional our waiter was able to speak 3 languages which is a plus. The ambience is great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend.
