“We simply didn't like the food”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Agree with previous reviews that the staff at this restaurant, including the owner, are lovely and the decoration is beautiful. Unfortunately our food experience just wasn't right. We ate at so many excellent restaurants in Hoi An and wished we had more time to go back to all of them, except for Blue Gecko. First, the food took about an hour to come, even though we were the only guests. Not sure why we didn't get our drinks until the food was ready, despite reminding the staff that they should at least give us our drinks. And when the food finally arrived, it was not tasty at all. Same for the drinks. I probably only had one small sip of my smoothie, that's how bad it was. I would not recommend this place.

“Rare enough to mention here!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We were looking for a great restaurant and were actually advised to go to another one, but on the way we passed by this one, liked it and decided to make a wild try. That was the best decision on our trip! The food is excellent and the service really amazing! So good that we went back the next day and enjoyed it even more. Highly recommended!

“Charming little hideaway with solid food at very reasonable prices.”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I had a solid 3 course meal consisting of crispy calamari, roasted duck in tamarin sauce and fried banana with ice cream for dessert. The duck was outstanding and everything else was good.

The young staff may be a little inexperienced, but they are friendly and helpful. As previously stated in other reviews, the owner IS a very entertaining man, and he will also clear up any confusion around the order if need be.

This restaurant is not a bad choice for an authentic meal in a relaxed atmosphere.

“Our first trip”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We tracked down the blue gecko and were not disappointed . Excellent food and very friendly service. A great blend of local and western foods very fairly priced, with very cold beer - not always easy to find.
