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.

We always like to try a new "off the beaten path" restaurant when we visit Cape May. Gecko's did not disappoint! We shared the quesadilla which is easily a meal for two. The service was just "ok". The server seemed to be swamped and this made service a bit slow, however it was worth the wait. As with most of... More

I expected more from this cute little place. The food was mostly ok, nothing great, but the chicken was very tough and inedible. The service was horrible, very disorganized and rushed. The girl who served us seemed very uncomfortable and never responded when we would say thank you, she just walked away quickly. The flavors of most of our meals... More

We like to go here for a nice dinner or lunch. Usually the food is very good although the last couple times I visited the food was not the greatest. You can't go wrong though with the 3 sister quesadilla.....

We have eaten numerous times at Gecko's. The specials are always interesting and tasty. Also, a variety of soups are available and the main courses are quite tasty. You order your food at the main counter and it is delivered to your table, either indoors or outside.

The decor was nice, the service was excellent. The ingredients were good but some combinations didn't work. The bruschetta was super good and the soups. We'll be back to try more of the menu, starting with the bruschetta.

This place was a big surprise to us! We had actually wanted to eat at Key West Taco which is joined together with Gecko's but Key West Taco was closed Wednesday. We were disappointed until we walked into the a friendly, very clean, cheerful environment of Gecko's ! Every bite was a food sensation we sat in a shaded little... More
