I ate here while in Yulara. The meals were nice...just average...nothing to write home about. I had the steak sandwich which was nice and the lamb ragout which was a little bland.

Our angus beef burgers was served cold. My wife's caprese salad, tomatoe and bocconccini cheese slices, was very poor and we have never seen anything like it. A few slices of tomatoe and very little bocconcini in a crumbled form. The chicken ceasar was good, not excellent but good. Other diners were having pizza and pasta and those dishes did... More

Good Aussie Food, no nonsense service (i.e. buzzer sounds and you go fetch it yourself) Not too bad a menu choice, but most importantly ... only cafe open at night, viva la choice! hehe

Food is the worst most disgusting food I've ever eaten. No table service. Extremely over priced slop. A pasta and a salad was $46 Pasta is over cooked, pasta sauce is bitter, pizza tastes like an air conditioning unit, salads are all onion, wine tastes like vinegar. Beyond a joke. Staff a friendly but have little to work with. The... More

Enjoyed an evening meal. Good value, reasonable size. Have good wine list and Australian / International beer. Great place to eat if you wish to get away from the high priced restaurants at the resorts.

We dined at Gecko's café after a long day at Uluru and we weren't disappointed. We were seated straight away and served lovely cold fresh water immediately. Ordering was easy and our meals were prepared promptly. Gecko's need more bar staff as the wait at the bar was quite lengthy but the barman was doing the best he could by... More

This place serves your traditional 'pub grub' and pizza with a slight twist at times. Quite tasty food. Service is variable depending on the staff on duty. It is a hospitality training facility so you get quite a few nervous new people serving you along with more experienced staff. All were great and tried hard. Not even close to a... More

Good reliable basic burger. Friendly service, happy to amend menu for nutritional preferences (salad not fries). Bit of a shame you have to go up and order yourself - a bit tricky when you're on your own and don't want to lose your table but don't have anything other than wallet, phone, keys etc (ie things that people might be...
