Nice view and attentive staff

The best situated restaurant in Geraldton but a bit isolated from the main foreshore. Unfortunately we were approached for money by a likely drugged up woman which unnerved us on the walk from our hotel as the street lighting is low. We were probably unlucky but it acted as a reminder to us that we... read more

No doubt Geraldton's best located restaurant, however food is pedestrian at best. It could be so much - not necessarily fine dining - but just better than cafe food.

We booked on the recommendation of the staff at iSite who told us it was the best place to go. We had booked a marina-side table so the view was lovely, but service was very slow although initially friendly. Bread was very expensive but delicious ($17), and tapas very nice. However on finishing our meal that was where any service... More

We have attempted to eat here a few times when we have visited Geraldton. Each time, we have been put off by the attitude of the manager and left to go elsewhere. The normal staff seem fine, and friendly, but somehow the manager has always been totally off putting

I am the Manager, and being away the last week when you have dined it leaves me wondering which one of our staff you are referring to?? There are 2 owners, 1 General Manager, and 4 Supervisors or Duty Managers and 20 other floor staff at this premise. If you are having the same issues each time you come, I... More

One star, and that's for the view! Food is overpriced and tasteless. Wife has medical condition, so can only eat vegan. Staff stated that they are unable to make a garden salad, but you can order a beef salad off the menu and they will take the beef out! Mind you, they still charge you full price! There are numerous... More

Skeetas is an icon in town and has always had a great location and substantial menu. The move to the marina has only enhanced the views it is unfortunate that they are so hit and miss with service and food quality. I usually always take visitors because it is so well situated but am always apologising before we go and... More

We booked a few days ahead and got a verandah seat. The food was excellent as we watched the sunset over the Indian Ocean. The staff looked after us very well. Its not the the cheapest place in town to eat, (We left the kids at home with pizza) but it is certainly worth it.

Friday night family dinner, the restaurant was quiet so we managed to get a nice table overlooking the marina. But unfortunately that was the highlight to the night. Service was very slow, after waiting 15 minutes we had to call the waiter over to take our order. Food took a long time to come out, with other guests who ordered... More
