one of the best meals in our trip

This is a very nice and friendly restaurant which probably serves one of the best pad thais in Thailand. The owner is very friendly as well. Totally recommended.

Ate here twice during our stay at Krabi. Chill atmosphere, the owner took care of us and made us feel welcome. Import steak was good, but not a tenderloin like advertised. Barracuda steamed lime was excellent as was green curry. Highly recommend.

Don't really understand the glowing reviews of this place. Maybe we caught them on an off night or maybe we made the mistake of ordering Thai food. Seems like a place for people who want westernized food/atmosphere while in Thailand. The shrimp were badly overcooked in both our dishes and the noodles were not cooked well either. They made a...

This is a lovely... More

we made a afternoon/evening visit to Krabi town during our holidays in Thailand, after a while we found the Gecko-Cabane and we got a very good dinner. You can get original Thai food as well as European food. Everything we tried tasted very good, and the service was perfect. Very friendly people and the waiting time was short. The price... More

Best breakfast of the trip thus far, highly recommended! The perfect place to stop during a hectic day of travel. The ginger iced tea and croissant were especially good.

Been travelling a few weeks in Thailand and not being offensive but the service in most places leaves alot to be desired. Not this place though. Brilliant attention to the details. Food was great too. Plus the owner very pleasant and friendly. Cheap for the quality of food and service. Highly recommended from us if you're in krabi town.
