I had my FIRST Emu/kangaroo PIZZA here!

We really enjoyed our lunch here and yes my Pizza was Emu and Kangaroo, certainly something you don't see in the states! It was GOOD!! I would order it again! Two suggestions to the restaurant open earlier than noon for lunch (11:15) and keep the doors closed to limit the flies as they are very... read more

Dined alone and felt safe. Good food and quick service. I had fish and chips, but it was more luxurious than at home.

We visited the Gecko Cafe on our last night and really enjoyed our meals, the staff were very friendly and the price was quiet reasonable for what we ordered.

Yulara has limited eating options, and you have to expect higher prices, so Gecko's prices are a tad high for what you get, but not overly pricey. As a result, it is the main choice for those who are dining outside their hotel but don't want to spend too much and it gets very busy. The kitchen and bar seem... More

Try the pizza. No frills, but still expensive( cheaper than the other Yulara eating options though). The lighting was poor(for energy reasons) and the ambiance rather gloomy.

The cafe serves lunch and dinner and we ate there for both. The meals are a generous size and there is a decent variety. We had the Black Angus burger for lunch and at $19 each for quite a large burger and chips, I thought it was reasonably priced when you consider that it is a tourist location and just... More

Decided to try lunch, lots of options to choose. Was quiet so service and food was quick. Lacks atmosphere and the seating not that comfortable if you wanted to settle. Staff looked disinterested. The food wasn't the best. We ate quickly and left. That night decided to try their takeaway. All items on their menu can be ordered as takeaway... More

It was a bit pricey, lots of variety to eat from. It is a very popular place to eat as we had to wait for a table. The table we sat at had a cold draft which made it uncomforable.
