We ate there on 2 occasions, both were completely different experiences. The food is quite good and on most occasions you are in for a wait unless you go there later in the night.

Staff were very friendly and we had a great couple of nights dining + you've got to try the Sangria after a day in the desert sun

The whole of this area is a tourist trap but that is no excuse for poor service and poor value for money. I went here for dinner to make a change from the BBQs and pizzas etc. but there was not a huge choice of menu and the portions were not very big. The waitress could hardly hear me so... More

This is a very busy café - but the manager was so well organised we didn't have long to wait. A very good menu and friendly staff provided excellent value for money. We ate there for dinner and lunch and were not disappointed!

My wife and I ate dinner here one night. We had pizza and salad and it was very good. The service was good but not great. I would definitely eat there again.

This is such a great place for a sandwich, coffee etc. You get exactly what you want and service if pretty quick. It's aim is to train young Aboriginal people for work in the hospitality industry.

We thought this was just the place- after a long journey we needed some quick food that would restore our energy. What we got was a long wait at the table (the waiters were visiting back packers I imagine), dismal food that barely covered the plate and empty pockets after the bill arrived. It has no competition so it charge... More

Gecko's is a good place for lunch. The service was quick and efficient, the burgers very tasty and we got the chance to get a decent glass of wine.

The Pizza was alright but the burgers seemed like all the bits had just come out of a freezer. The wait time was quite large and it was very noisy inside. It was very hard to get plain spring water.
