This is a short walk from the market area, so away from all the hussle and bustle. Looked very cosy and inviting so we gave it a try. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Very cosy place, decor quirky and lots of fans to cool you down. There were families with children there so suitable for everyone. Excellent... More

Gecko Cabane is unique and delicious. The ambiance is not a typical venue appealing to western tastes (music, decor, menu, etc), but is instead its own thing. The owners are very welcoming and willing to accommodate food allergies. We were in Krabi Town for 4 days, and decided to return for our last night. We left on a positive note.

Overrated - nice penang curry but fried chicken was a bit disappointing. Fishcakes were quite good. The whole meal was 650 baht for a starter, 2 mains, a mango lassi and big bottle of water.

Best red curry I've had so far, but not best curries. You can totally hit a secret and authentic spot that has really great curries. However this place has a nice and Romantic atmosphere with great service.

I'd rate this restaurant 5 stars on the basis of their "fish in 3 sauces" alone. It was the best fish dish either of us have had anywhere for quite a while. Aside from that it is a really pretty restaurant, hung with lanterns and nice furniture. The rest of our food was good and the service was excellent -... More

My final rating of Gecko Cabane is very fair as based on four elements for a restaurant rating; Service, Food, Value and Atmosphere. I found the atmosphere of the restaurant to be quiet while dining on the porch with the fans circulating in the background, the vibe seemed ideal for couples, less for the solo traveler. The down side of... More
