We were bike riding and decided to give this a try for lunch. Cute place, with outdoor garden seating--weather was nice, so we ate outside. Actually nobody was eating inside. In fact, you wouldn't want to eat inside. Mixed review here. The quesedilla's were very good, but the Cuban was not edible. The pork was thick, tough, and hard to... More

Geckos was our favourite overall restaurant of many that we ate at in the Cape May area. Delicious fresh and tasty food, great service and reasonably priced 😀 we sat outside playing cards for a while afterwards and had a very pleasant and relaxing time. Highly recommended 👍

I've eaten at Gecko's when it was more "in town" in Cape May. It is now located next door to Key West Tacos, and has an indoor and outdoor (picnic table) seating area. You order at the counter when you walk in. A chalkboard menu is provided and they were able to accommodate my vegan diet. We ate outdoors because... More

Accommodated a large party beautifully. The food was spicy and yummy, and the prices at this great little BYOB were very reasonable. Good flank steak, tomato soup, cornbread, salmon.

The most delicious (and large) Cuban sandwich this side of Havana! Made with fresh succulent pork, ham, down to the pickles. A great byob with lovely outdoor garden seating ( indoor also). Everything is made fresh. All has been delicious but the Cuban, I get hungry just thinking about it!

Parked a few blocks from Washington square and found this gem on our walk in. Shrimp quesadilla was great. Friendly staff and a nice outdoor setting. Recommend lunch here plus the prices are great

Looking for a dinner for two, we found just the right place. The Bruschetta Camponada was delicious! Five pieces of bread topped with an eggplant bruschetta! Pulled lamb flatbread & black bean cakes provided enough for dinner & lunch the next day, too. Very friendly service.

Our family of ten stopped here because they had outside picnic tables which could seat all of us fairly close together. My husband and I each had the vegetable Panini which was so large that we could have split it; in fact I stopped eating the bread and just ate the vegetables. It came with red cabbage slaw which my... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant by mistake. Best mistake ever! Food is delicious and service is good. Only restaurant we visited multiple times while at Cape May.
