On the Facebook homepage of the restaurant is written, that it's closed until late August. Just be aware. We didn't check the page and stood in front of a closed place...

Interesting, enjoyable lunch. We had a two hour wait for the ferry to Koh Phi Phi and this gem of a restaurant was just a short walk from the bus station. Some reviews mentioned that the food was overpriced, but we found it was a good value and delicious. Definitely a must-visit when in town.

Here you'll find a French-Thai fusion. We had Pad Thai, Massaman Curry, fruit shakes and fried rice. It was comparatively expensive, but it was brilliantly tasty and we received a wealth of insight into the cooking methods from our waiter (also the owner). We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here.

Had Thai noodles and fruit shakes. Food was very average. A little overpriced for the given quality. The owner was very friendly though. Were a bit disappointed after all the positive reviews.

As we head into the 4th day in thailand, we had mixed experience with our culinary experiments until we stumbled upon the Gecko Cabane in Krabi. Very few restaurants can please us with their fud and hospitality and Gecko definitely is right there on the top. I would definitely recommend this for anyone heading out to Krabi....

Nice hidden place in Krabi. On a very stormy/rainy day we've followed tripadvisor. The owner is super gentle. Nice menu's fusion off different continents. Took sate and papaya salad. Main entrecôte rosemary sea salt and a nice Middle east stew of lamb. All very delicious and great place to recommend

We have eaten here with a big group of 13 hospitality students. We went to a lot of restaurants in Krabi and this was phenomenal. The food (starter to dessert) and wine was astounding.

I had the coconut milkshake, they added coconut cream so it was really rich, one of the best ones I've ever had. I also go the spicy noodle and prawn dish. It was wonderful, I would definitely recommend it again. I was so excited to eat I forgot to take a picture. The service was also excellent and I was... More
