Good for a family meal

A group of us with kids went here for lunch. The kids menu is great, and the kids meals are a decent size. The restaurant was quite busy so service was a little slow and we would have to get the staff's attention as they never came to the table to see how we were going. The meals were a... read more

Over 3 nights at Yulara we dined here twice. First night was pizza take away 2nd night we ate in, pasta, pork ribs, steak & chicken. All meals were a good size, well cooked, tasty and decently priced. Alcohol was a little over what you would pay in Brisbane but OK based on the remoteness.

We ordered simple meals, spag bol and pizza and that's what we got---simple, nothing fancy but very satisfying. Perfect for hungry folks! The service was quick and friendly. Paid more than we expected for simple meals ($50+) but I guess that's the norm in the middle of the desert!

Lots of choices when you are too tired for fine dining. Tasty and generous serves were just what we were looking for.

As far as options go in Yulara, there are barely any. Gecko Cafe wasn't TOO expensive and the Gnocchi I had was absolutely delicious. Better than a wrap or sandwich and not too much more costly.
