This might be Sapa's prettiest café with tasteful hill tribe inspired decor and beautiful plants and flowers, but all this charm is rather useless when the coffee they serve is so bad. The flat white (not even cheap at 60k) was a bland brown broth...without foam, some already spilt on the saucer. I politely asked them to take it back and try again to make a proper flat white, to which they replied this is exactly what a flat white should look like and refused to take it back. Better go to Lê Gecko Café by the lake, the price is the same but at least the coffee is drinkableMore

Friendly staff, small, intimate restaurant, good food with a French accent, fast service, good prices, efficient WiFi - we'll certainly be back on our next trip to Sapa

We loved the rice in bamboo, though our server, whose English was minimal, said that a serving was two pieces and we got one - making it hard to share. The eggplant curry was very good, the gecko eyes were okay but bland, and the...wild boar with cardamom consisted of a pile of tough strips of meat with a very small sprinkle of cardamom on top. I assumed we would get some sort of side dish or that the pork would be in a sauce, but it was just the dry meat without accompaniment.More

Went here for some Vietnamese coffee. Love it... the coffee here was super tasty. We’ll be going here again during our stay in Sa Pa.

I had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. The server was very helpful with my gluten free needs. It was a pretty cold evening & I appreciated the warmth & ambience of the restaurant. My food was delicious & the service was great

We took a day off from our tour through Vietnam and had breakfast at Le petit Gecko which was delicious. The staff was English and French speaking.

A LOVELY small cafe for a quiet drink of wine or coffee. In the centre of town with friendly polite staff. Eat at Le Gecko restaurant a few doors down the street for good Vietnamese food with excellent service.

We went in Sapa during winter. It was cold and foggy. Le petit Gecko was our QG with good food (cakes,Gecko eyes, spring rolls++), good coffee/hmong tea, good music and very nice staff who speaks french/english. It's warm and cosy. We liked it.

Even though this restaurant had very good rating at the TripAdvisor and a number of tourists were present there, we were not much excited by this place. The furniture was old and shabby, not much choice of menu items and the service was just so...so.More
