A nice spot for a meal after a long day

A great atmosphere, reasonable prices and within easy walking distance of most accommodation. Attentive service I don't think my water glass was ever empty.

We ate at this restaurant several times during our stay as there are very limited restaurants in the area. The food itself was good although the salads are quite small especially if you want it for a meal. The restaurant does not have air conditioning so if you plan to eat there, ask for a table under one of the... More

Gecko's Cafe is a typical cafe/burger, where you can eat good hamburgers, salats or pizzas to lunch or dinner. It so good to take a break or to take an informal dinner after visit Uluru or Kata Tjuta Rocks. It is located in the center of Yulara in a square, where there is the information center, a supermarket and some... More

Ate here one night, the food was pretty good. Was a nice change. The service was a bit slower than the other places we had been to.

I ate here a couple of times during my stay at Yulara. It provides a good variety of affordable meals - good surroundings (lots of room) and very good service. A good lunch or evening meal venue.

There are not a lot of dining options in Ayres Rock. Gecko's Cafe offers decent quality food, served quickly, and priced reasonably. It does not deliver a superior gustatory experience but it really does not pretend to do so, either. Go there if you are hungry, seeking familiar decent quality food, and don't have undue expectations for superior quality.

Great value for money food, good selection & very tasty. Restaurant air conditioning needs improving, it was a bit hot ! Ceiling fans didn't quite do the job

We had lunch at Gecko's Cafe as an alternative to the restaurant at the Desert Gardens Resort. The choices were much better, the service was very good and the food was quite good. With a limited number of choices, it isthebestchoice in the resort.

I would rate this as ok food, we all had pasta & not a lot can go wrong with this. The service was very good & they repeated our order, so it was right. The staff were friendly. You are a captive audience in this resort & area. It must also be expensive to get supplies in & out. You... More
