“Sweet Girls”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Its a great place to meet girls who take time to chat with you. The bar has free food barbecue pork. You pay a bit for the drinks 2 bucks LOL but that is the cost for a good hang out. It's quiet place the owner is friendly and his wife manages it the bar.

“Nice Little Bar”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

Went here last night and had a blast. Previous reports were spot on. Greeted on the street by two girls outside. Ushered inside to a roar from the other girls. Very welcoming, maybe too much but that's a good problem to have. Girls came right over and sat down and talked as much as you wanted. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Someone said this was a GIRLIE BAR and I disagree. The girls never asked for drinks (of course you can buy them) and certainly never made the move to take me out if the bar. All-in-all a great place to go.

“EL GECKO IS NOT A "GIRLIE BAR"”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

I have been to El Gecko a lot of times.. And it is NOT a "girlie bar"... Which means to say they are just a normal bar with many waitresses. Girls work there to entertain customers and have fun. You can not take them out for any reasons. They have many girls because they have been very busy since a new owner takes over it!! For BILL B, i think you are ignorant enough to see things.A girl standing behind the bar in front of you to take your order, its a quick service for you! Think!?! This bar has changed alot! It has improved! Before 3 years ago, its been a quite and lousy bar. But now its been a GREAT bar. The food is great and the girls are fun to be with!! Can not find this in any other bar in cebu!!!!!!

“El Gecko Now a Girlie Bar”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

I stopped in at El Gecko last week & it has changed owners (again). A couple women sitting outside & a lot inside. Ordered a drink & 1 lady stood right in front of me (from behind the bar) the whole time I was there. There were always 4 behind the bar & more out on the floor. I came in to have a drink, that's all. The place has changer & not for the better unless you are a single guy on the prowl.

“Most Enjoyable Bar in Cebu”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Everyone has their own opinions and wants and likes in a bar, but for me this is the best place to just hangout and have a good time. It's not a bikini bar, but the ladies that work there look great and are very friendly and fun. They play music you request, have sports on the tv, have a billiards room and occasionally have fun bar games to entertain the customers. I tried just about everything on the menu and it was all great. Lots of Foreigners frequent this bar as well as locals. El Gecko's is how a bar should be in my opinion. Fun!
