All young staff are very courteous with a smile. very authentic french environment inside and outside varandah area. Inside there were nice wall hangers depicting the original people of Sapa..very clean... More

This little restaurant was just around the corner from our hotel. As we were coming home from dinner I noticed that there was the most tantalising array of cakes, pantries, tarts and pies out the front. After much deliberation I decided on the apple pie. The cost of all their cakes etc is $40,000VND which just under $3AUD. This pie... More

Staff were friendly, good service. We ordered a pizza and chicken fried rice, both meals were ok, but certainly not the best in Sapa. Dessert was good! Probably wouldn't eat here again

This restaurant was a perfect warm spot for dinner. We were surprised at how good the salami pizza was! And the tagliatelle crema was good too. Bihn and all the waitstaff were friendly and provided an excellent experience. Highly recommend!

The main courses and dessert selection at this restaurant are great. Service is friendly and quick. The food is on the expensive side but it's worth it for a decent meal, there are lots of places in Sapa that will give you a cheaper but far lower quality meal. We came here twice during our stay in Sapa and really... More

Formal, attentive service from beginning to end. Extremely professional staff with a talented bartender. Our food was great; we mixed it up and had nem along with the bruschetta and a pizza. My sister had a sangria and she was a big fan. Overall, it was the best service we have received in SaPa with good food and drinks to... More

Le Gecko quickly became our favourite Sapa spot! Very reasonable prices, waiters speak good English and French, service unobtrusive yet quick. Great action-watching on the balcony but inside is very pleasant if the noise is too much. The gecko tea with Apple and cinnamon is delicious!! Great range of French, Vietnamese and Western opinions, extensive drinks menu. The sweet potato... More

This is by far the best restaurant I have been in Sapa. The staff understand English and do everything they can to please you. The food is good, providing you don't expect a level that doesn't exist in sapa. I have been to many places, I have always been disappointed except in this one.
