curries are great, dining with a sea breeze. Dry bar (but if you buy softdrinks.. BYOB) Banana/chocolate pancakes for breakfast!

It is owned by the same team of wild orchid, but he place is really well nestled really close to the beach. You can sit in the open, chill your... More

Fresh food, great beach location, young trendy and relaxed vibe without making this 40something feel out of place so casual enough to blend in.... Sometimes the zen feel was a little too chil-axed as it was so dimly lit it was hard to really see what you were eating... an issue with shrimp with their tails on.... Only issue is... More

We were staying at the Emerald Gecko while at Havelock and therefore got multiple instances to eat at Blackbeard's Bistro. The menu, while limited has quite a range for everyone. Ample vegetarian as well as seafood and poultry. The sheer variety of fish on offer, from barracuda to snapper to Trevalli was outstanding. Breakfast was excellent as well with the... More

We ate food in Black Beards Bistro during our stay in Gecko. the fish is was awesome. we ate Red Snapper with Manchurian & Cream with Barracuda both are finger licking tasty. however, price is mid range which is not too higher or not cheaper. if you are continental food lover then you must visit BB Bistro.

We ate here one evening. It is a small open shack on the beach with an area on the beach with a few tables but otherwise an open thatch hut. Lots of mosquitos and other beach insects. The food was ok. Nothing at all special but ok. It had been recommended by other travellers but we both thought it wasn't... More

I am so surprised to see such high ratings for this place! For me, the only plus is the visual appeal of this place. We stayed in Emerald Gecko and had a few dinners here. The place is very beautifully done for dinners if you want to sit outside – subtly decorated with beautiful cotton curtains that look beautiful when... More

We ate here a couple of times, we understand that this is also owned by Wild Orchid and the menu is said to be designed by the chef at Red Snapper also, however the menu does change everyday, which in many ways is really nice as you can get bored of seeing the same menu once you've eaten a few...

The bistro located on The Emerald Geco resort has a snazzy ( if surly on occasion) service at a fantastic location bang on the beach. The ambiance in the evenings is magical when all the lights are on at the al fresco dining area oustide the main restaurant. That being said the food is just average and a bit bland... More
