Nice seafood platter

The three of us had dinner here on evening. The waitstaff were friendly and attentive. We ordered a seafood platter for $40 to share (2x oysters, 1x grilled fish, garlic prawns, fried squid, salad and chips which I requested to change to mashed potatoes) and a large Hawaiian pizza ($26).

Ordered room service from the Ocean Centre Hotel, timing was great, but it came with no cutlery, after getting some from reception whom has nothing to do with the restaurant we were less then happy with the meals, the pizza was awful and soggy. We are in no diar rush to dine here again.

This is the second time that I have been to eat here and both times I have been underwhelmed! I ordered fish and chips and without a shadow of doubt it was a frozen fish deep fried in batter! Tasteless!!! I didn't eat it and when the waitress asked if it was ok I told her no. She took it... More

Pros- great prices and amazing food! Staff are lovely also! Situated on a mall strip so lots of parking unless it's at breakfast or lunch time Cons- the interior isn't that nice but the food makes up for the view.

Thank you EK for your review and we are certainly pleased that you found the service friendly and attentive. Yet is also pleasing that the food was delicious and that they were able to suit your choice of mash in place of chips. Once again thank you for taking the time to write a review and we look forward to... More

Driving down from Perth we stayed in Geraldton for a couple of nights. There are a few Cafes in town but none had any restaurants style service. Therefore, we came across Topolinis caffe. Greeted by friendly staff on arrival and were seated accordingly. As we were not overly hungry we decided to go for a couple of their 'Little Plates'.... More

My partner and I come here to dine twice since visiting Gerladton as we are up for Christmas holidays. I can not fault a thing. Both occasions we were greeted in a friendly manner, seated and had ordered within minutes. Food was quickly delivered with a smile.

Myself and a friend attended this cafe for a quick coffee and a piece of cake, the two staff members seemed more interested in themselves and each other then running a cafe front, we had heard such bad things about the service but thought it can not possibly be true. Unfortunately this did turn out to be true. The cake... More

I recently dined at Toppos on two occasions while in Geraldton for business. There was a younger crew running the front of house but they were very enthusiastic and helpful. The meals were excellent, I had Snapper and salad on the first night and the Toppos steak on the second. A word of warning about the Toppos steak, make sure... More

Food was reasonable and friendly staff with great setting. Shame there was only 3 serving staff so waited 35 mins for deserts & forgot wine. Thought management would have expected increase in business due to Christmas event.
