No tacos and enchiladas here. Fine dining with a whole new interpretation of Mexican. Sauces are to die for. Presentation is absolutely first rate. Look to spend a few bucks, and it will be worth every penny. What other restaurant does not even have a sign out front?

We had one of the best Mexican meals at Gabbi's. This is AUTHENTIC Mexican - not Tex-Mex. The atmosphere is rustic and charming. The service was wonderful. And the food was exquisite. The chicken soup was surprising and was seasoned wonderfully. The molé was one of the best I have tasted. Make reservations!

There is no big sign outside just a simple G for Gabbi short for Gabriela (the owner and food creator). Her menu is creative and offers a variety of Yucatan influenced food. We enjoyed our handmade margaritas - yes they squeeze their own citrus and a variety of food from pork appetizer, shrimp salad, nopales (prickly pear cactus) with egg... More

Had an early dinner at Gabbi's recently. First of all, the decor, the ambiance, the personnel working there are all top notch. Very charming, pleasant, classy. The chips and salsa are top rate. I ordered a white sangria on the suggestion of our waiter, Diego. Wow, the best sangria I've ever had. It had pieces of mint, pomogranate seeds, maybe... More

I have eaten at this local gem at least one dozen times and am always excited to go back! Tried some new things this time; carnitas and a blood orange margarita. Such a pleasant change from my usual enchiladas suizas and cadillac margarita. Our server was extremely attentive and patient with our desire to dine leisurely despite the lunchtime rush.... More

This is a beautiful, well appointed small restaurant with a sidewalk patio giving a very European dining experience. It is located one half block south of the Orange Plaza (aka"The Circle") in the Old Town district in Orange. You won't be disappointed.
