We ate there a couple of times in the evening, because it was closer to our hotel than some other restaurants. We preferred eating downstairs as the atmosphere was more enjoyable. All the food was good and the service was fine particularly downstairs (not sure why this was). It was clear from what we overheard that many people come back... More

We went to Gecko restaurant last night as we couldn't find many restaurants and wanted a proper meal before travelling today. Food was fantastic! Great service, big portions and very good prices! I had spaghetti carbonara and the others had chicken with chips and vegetables. Everyone enjoyed theirs. Highly recommend
