We used the 3 Geckos 3 times, and were extremely pleased with the service, food and drinks. Very nice atmosphere as well. Spotlessly clean and very well managed as well. Very keenly priced and gives excellent value, and the best coffee.

Great atmosphere and setup, very friendly staff, I had their banana split and Hmong Tea and both really good. The WiFi also works very good if you want to relax and get some stuff done on the Internet.

Lovely looking food from the minute we walked through the door. The apple crumble looked to die for. I had the tartiflette and it was delicious, the burgers however, weren’t so amazing. Room for improvement but overall a lovely dining experience

We were looking for some reliable coffee and found a nice experience sitting outside in the outdoor chairs watching the street traffic at le Gecko. We had the black coffees and a pastry. Staff was nice and the prices are good. Thank you! :)
