Interestingly different!

Visited this restaurant with a group of friends and colleagues in two separate parties so we were able to compare and contrast much of what was on the menu. The restaurant had been recommended as a quirky place to eat by local contacts. As has been described by others, the external appearance of... read more

Been here many times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Have recently switched to a paleo diet and the chef could not have been more accomadating in converting the burger and chips into a paleo feast. Delish! Thank you x

After walking past this building a fair few times thinking it was a bus shelter or public toilets, a friend suggested we go there for dinner. We hadn't booked for early on a Friday evening but we were squeezed in with a 2 hour time slot, although opposite the toilet. The menu looked interesting and the pizzas were different to... More

Great place to eat, reasonably priced and amazing selection of food. The cooked breakfast was fantastic, good quality meat and lovely bread used for the toast. The little touches such as the herbs sprinkled on top really made it. They do excellent pancakes as well, best pancakes I have ever had. Although it would be good if the blueberries were... More

Nipped in for lunch as the place along the road was too busy! Never even knew this place was here to be honest. The food was excellent and the service ok if not a little lacking in humour. I can't be too critical of this as the place was literally full. To be honest I can forgive most things for... More

I'm always looking for new places to try and this is a rare find. Great atmosphere and a very lovely menu. As with everyone else it's the fillet steak sandwich is very very enjoyable. The owner (I assume) makes this place so homely and warm. The staff are friendly and attentive. Would recommended to anyone and can't wait to go... More

this is the only place in Stirling that I look forward to returning to.the food is always very tasty ,the specials are a wee bit different and I always struggle to pick from the menu due to so much choice.agree with previous reviewer that it looks like a bus shelter but do not let that put you off.

In an unassuming spot - just opposite the a budget hotel in the newly commercialised riverside area - is this this cracking little diner. We stopped for lunch and the had a main course each, which was perfect. It wasn't expensive and the menu large for the very tight cooking area. I've eaten in stirling a number of times and... More

Went for my birthday lunch on January 9th and it was simply divine. The food, the atmosphere, the friendly staff and the nice little touches make this the ONLY place we would eat in Stirling. We live a few miles out of Stirling and have tried many, many places and would not go past Gabe's for a nice meal.
