Just popped in here today as I was passing at lunchtime, parking nearby was easy and there were tables outside so I could have the dog with us. Very different to what I was expecting from the outside (looks like a converted bus stop or public toilet). We were welcomed, children's menu and colouring sheet provided, drinks order taken quickly... More

This is a cosy wee restaurant which serves excellent food. One of the best meals I've had in Stirling. Varied, interesting menu of well cooked food. Was out for meal with friends, we had scollops, venison, duck - all perfect. Service was friendly, helpful and unobtrusive.

Fantastically friendly service. Menu basics great value prices (loved the haddock & chips £10), but specials pricey at £17/18. Huge portions. Not many tables - can reserve. But - skirting boards, walls, fittings, especially toilet door and frame are all dirty and generally needs a good spring clean as we found it off-putting despite the great food & service. Or... More

Went for a pre cinema meal not expecting much going by appearances, but boy, were we ever surprised. Blows the socks off Nandos/F & B generic bland offerings. Staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Best meal i have ever had in Stirling :)

I visited Gabe's diner for the first time last night. Gabe's diner is definitely not what you would expect from the outside. It is such a hidden gem. It has a very unique layout and interior inside and has such a cosy atmosphere. The staff were brilliant and really friendly. The service was great. I'm coeliac so thought I would... More

I visited here today & couldn't wait to write a review! The fish & chips was the best I've ever had, so fresh & amazingly presented. All the food was presented perfectly! Quick service, great staff & I can't wait to go back & try everything else. The flapjack was also really tasty, nice & buttery & melt in your... More

Great service and food. Little pricey but very much worth it. I would have no qualms about recommending this cosy restaurant.

This was a visit with my husband and we loved this wonderful wee place. The beef fillet was truly to die for. Have also been with the kids and the burgers and macaroni are second to none.

Ot's a joy every time I go. The food is fantastic, don't miss out on the desserts, I am more of a "savoury" diner but I couldn't leave without one of their desserts. The staff is very attentive and always with a genuine smile on the face, the atmosphere is cosy and friendly. What else do you need?
