Will definitely return....

Husband booked the table and from outside I was very dubious but I needn't have worried. Very pleasant and helpful staff and the food was a really great surprise! Both starter and main were delicious and the raspberry cheesecake was out of this world. Go and be impressed.

Small restaurant in stirring but don't let that fool you the quality of the food is brilliant, have heard comments about speed of service but it is not ding ding microwave food all cooked fresh to order so if you want fast food forget it this is for quality

Whilst staying at the premier inn, weather was awful and we were looking for somewhere close by. Gabe's Diner is just across the road and definitely worth a visit. The specials menu is really appetising. We had the Malaysian curry and the trout in a Thai sauce with noodles. Delicious!

Brilliant find of a café-bistro style restaurant in an unexpected place along from the usual chain outlets near the cinema. I'd heard good reviews and was not disappointed. Spoilt for choice with the very reasonably priced evening 2/3 course menus & specials. Starters and main course were delicious. Special mention to the Chai Latte and Coconut Crumble Cheesecake - heaven... More

Went in here yesterday after body swerving the usual Nandos next to the Vue cinema and can only say what a brilliant wee restaurant this is. The descriptions elsewhere of being a bus shelter don't do it any favours but nevertheless it does have its own atmosphere which would probably be a bit better on an evening. My wife and... More

Having read previous reviews I was really looking forward to meal! First comment - doesn't sell alcohol! Food was edible but nothing fantastic for the price. Payed £18.50 for main meal that I could have done a better job on. Sorry Gabes but I wouldn't return or recommend. :-/

Don't let its size put you off. Gabe's is far more than a diner, its not a container in a carpark,. it is a little gem. Great and varied menu, and the food was fabulous too,. Staff genuinely friendly. Restaurant was basic, but the food made up for it. Not to be missed !!! Could charge twice as much for... More

Just had a wonderful meal here. Choice of food was excellent as was the quality. Service also first class. This place is a wee gem and we will be back soon. Remember to bring your own bottle as it is BYOB.

This is our go to place for a lazy brunch. Their scrambled eggs are amazing, as is the New York bagel. Have only visited for lunch once, and was disappointed, but you can't beat it for breakfast.
