Sunday lunch in the heart of the busy season -- enjoyed a lovely lunch in the garden! Cold Sesame Noodles with Duck, Corn and Black Bean Cakes, Pork Pasole, and a quesadilla for our little one. Not a crumb was left. You order at the counter and then go sit down. Food is delivered, and you bus your plates. Both... More

My husband and I tried Gecko's West Perry Cafe for the first time yesterday. It is a very cute little place, looks like it may have originally been built as a small cottage, and has been updated with tropical colors and art for a fresh, beachy look. The shaded outdoor dining area is about as large as the indoor area,... More

Restaurant was very good. We have a vegan member of our party & there were a lot of choices here. It's byob which always saves money. The food & service is excellent. It is a long walk from the beach area so keep that in mind. We all really enjoyed this place & would go back again.

The food is always freshly prepared. The salads and vegetables are the main feature of their meals, and are always done to perfection. Don't miss the sun tea.

The "old" Geiko's was what we were expecting when we dined at the "new" Geiko's. Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed. It is no longer a table service meal. You order when you enter and then the food is brought to your table ... on plastic plates with plastic utensils. They no longer serve the delicious corn bread while you wait... More

Great for any meal. Loved the savory pulled lamb dish with lots beans and veggies, very generous portion, fresh and really tasty. A fresh roasted corn soup was also excellent. Many interesting dishes of fresh good food at a very reasonable price. A very comfortable, clean, casual atmosphere, sit inside or outside at picnic tables.

The owners of Gecko's, Cape May have closed that well known and successful venture after 15 years to open a more casual and relaxed café just a few blocks away on the border of West Cape May. It has been open just a couple of weeks and is already doing rather well, drawing the people who were fans of their... More
