“Good ribs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

You don't go to Uluru for fine dining, but the Gecko was, given the context (i.e, not in a capital city), quite good. Great spareribs, nice kangaroo burger, good soup of the day (cauliflower and bacon).

“Really nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

We went here on the 12th and it was our sons 6th Birthday, which he mentioned to a lady named Vivien who was absolutely lovely, the staff came out with icecream cake and candles and all sung happy birthday. We had pizza which I really liked but my partner would have like more topping, each to their own but our meals were fast and I thought the service was excellent, especially Vivien.

“Food was great, service was poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Service was poor, with some (but not all!) wait staff coming across as rude and inexperienced.
The food however was great, with prompt time between ordering and delivering our meals. A good selection of tasty food at a good price.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We didn't eat here, just dessert and coffee which were delicious, we met friends from home here who were eating and they said it was delicious. The staff are lovely, it was very busy and a lively atmosphere.
