“Giddy Goat for lunch”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Giddy Goat has a bar side and a cafe side to the establishment. We lunched in the cafe. The food was good, having the usual Australian light meal menu at the usual prices. Outdoor seating is on the pavement/sidewalk of one of the town's principal shopping streets so there's lots to watch while you eat.

Their dessert selection is reasonable, with something from most of the continents -- pecan pie, carrot cake, tropical fruit baked goods, etc.

Indoors is air-conditioned with an interestingly eclectic decor ranging from the 1930's through to the 1970's.

It's a busy spot at lunch time with shoppers and friends meeting and greeting, which makes for a 'hometown' feel that makes visitors feel they're really being part of a location and not just watching it.

“It the place we choose to meet and eat”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

becoming popular at times that if youdo not book you miss out. Wednesday night is $2 Taco night great for kids and friends to get together. Sometime worth trying a little adventurously named salad. Helping sizes are great and food I like the way they serve it. 2 kids 3 adults under $40

“Simple but not special”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I have visited Giddy Goat Cafe a few times for breaky, lunch and dinner and while I have had no terrible meals, it is definitely not mind blowing. Their sweets/dessert selections are all yummy and cocktails at the bar are also great but the food is definitely not 5 star. There isn't a lot to choose from so fussy eaters should probably stay away. I have always received great service and the atmosphere is always great in Rockhampton CBD. The outside setting of a night time is always enjoyable.

“Great cafe”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Excellent food service and location. You can sit outside under the lovely huge awnings and people gaze. Coffee equivalent to any of the restaurants in the major cities!
