Delicious Western foods Nov 21, 2012
The Gecko Cafe is a restaurant named in every Lonely Planet guide book. We went twice and we were not disappointed.

The menu has a selection of Western favourites such as pasta, pizza, burgers and Mexican food, as well as some Khmer food. The mains range from $4 - $6.50 which is more expensive than most food we've had in Cambodia so far. The beer also cost $3 for a big bottle.

The restaurant seating is located on the first floor of one of the French colonial buildings, there are seats on the balcony. Make sure to slather yourself in the mosquito spray, they are quite prominent at this place!

The staff are friendly and the food was delicious. They gave us plenty. Most of the Western food we had gotten so far didn't taste the same, but it does here.

When you pay the bill the waitresses bring out a tray with three little holders on it, the middle one is for the money for the bill and the other two are labeled servers and chefs, which we found quite cheeky but the food was good so we didn't mind.

Excellent break from Cambodian food Jun 28, 2010
If you crave a tasty, affordable break from Khmer food, Gecko Cafe is the place to go. Slightly pricier than most restaurants in Battambang City, you can get an entree for about $4-7 USD. Gecko offers paninis, crisp salads (which are difficult to find in Battambang), burgers, fries, coffee, and freshly-made fruit drinks. The cappuccino freeze is delicious. There are also some tasty Khmer dishes.

The seating is on a second-floor balcony, where you can enjoy a fresh breeze and a view of the streets. The servers are friendly and used to communicating with English-speaking tourists. There is a souvenir shop downstairs which sells t-shirts, jewelry, and Khmer knick-knacks.
