When you are out in the middle of the Northern Territory, the "Gecko Cafe" is affordable and have some Italian style food to enjoy after a long day. We were very lucky to have come to the restaurant at 5:30pm before the big rush of people after 6:00pm. My wife had the "Fish and Chips" and I had the "Spaghetti... More

We went here for our anniversary dinner. The food was ok for its price and the staff were lovely. They didn't have my favourite wine on the menu by the glass but the waitress organised it for me it was really appreciated. My only suggestion is do not have the garlic pizza as it tasted of raw garlic.

Gecko's is not the fanciest restaurant in Yulara, however if you're after an affordable, simple and relaxing dining experience it is a great choice. There is a great selection of basic, Italian-style meals to choose from, and they are all fantastic. I have been here quite a few times, for both lunch and dinner, when I lived in Yulara. The...

Food was excellent and prices were reasonable. It's located in the little town square and it gets pretty full as it is the best value in town.

We ate lunch in this cafe, and found the price fine. The food was basic but satisfying. It's your run-of-the mill cafe, but done well.

Food was great, I had the steak, cooked as I like and my partner the lamb dish. Both came with mash and have to say it was one of the best I have had. Good prices and attentive service.

The menu isn't fancy. It's cafe type food which is all we wanted for lunch so we were happy. My husband really liked his sliders. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can sit inside or out and it's a nice spot to enjoy some food and a beer in the middle of the day. Well worth stopping by... More

Gecko's only problem is its popularity. Food was good and plentiful and cost was reasonable. Service was good given the crowds. A really good family eatery in the middle of Australia. Pleasant surprise.
