We went to lunch at the Lazy Gecko today. Good food, good portions, and great they had a few items that were gluten free. However for beans, tacos, and chips it was expensive. We probably won't be back again.

Burrito was huge, shared with wife. Fresh, flavourful and big. Others dad taco soup and said it was delicious. Salsa Fresca has a nice little bite to it. Service was fast and cheerful. Definitely would stop again

This place has a smaller menu but it has grown recently. The food is still authentic, fresh, and tasty though. I like the burritos. My son loves the chicken and the beef tacos.

Advertised as the place offering the largest burritos on the island is a big claim, but believe me they are big, they are tasty and we're hugely pleased to have found this location. The waitress was very friendly, very helpful and combined with the great...More

Stopped around 2:00 pm. Sat outside viewing the mountains and the water. There were 3 small tables and 2 larger tables. The waitress was bubbly and friendly. She was not pushy about placing your food order and brought drinks quickly allowing time to sit and...More
