We happened to be in the area; so we stopped here for lunch on a Friday. My wife and I both came away saying wow! Gecko's is a cute, cozy little place with a very comfortable atmosphere. For nicer weather they have some tree-covered outdoor...More

We have passed by Gecko's several times, but decided to stop in for the first time today. As others have mentioned, the menu is not huge with a Southwest focus, but I think that it does offer a nice selection for most tastes. My mother...More

We were exhausted after a full day of errands and wanted a quick and easy dinner. Key West Tacos was closed so we ambled into Geckos. What a great find. The menu is limited and mostly Mexican in taste profile. But I took a chance...More

This West cape May restaurant has small connected rooms with gecko designs all over. It also has outdoor seating under the trees. The food was excellent. Smoked crab cakes, creamy tomato soup and risotto with portabello mushrooms. And desserts to die for.

Really good prices and a nice selection for a small place. Bring your own beverage and relax in the casual setting indoors or outdoors at the picnic tables.

This place has a decent amount of choices for gluten-free members. I got the 3 Sisters Quesadilla with the corn tortilla (they said there could be cross-contamination) but I was fine and enjoyed my meal. They did have numerous choices that were gluten-free without cross...More

Good to see that friends of the old Gecko’s are finding us and enjoying our cute embience and menu additions.

The food is organic, as reflected in the prices. The café leads out to a broad, open patio which is the best part. Offers limited menu & not affiliated with Key West tacos--although they share a very small building.
