Gabby's Bistro

Dumaguete City, Dumaguete City, Philippines
Improve this listing
Cuisines: American
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Reservations, Late Night
Description: Our resort driver (Antulang's driver) recommended we take our late lunch here, it was very near the city airport, maybe 5 minutes away. It is like a diner type, really new and cozy. I know it's also a hotel or apartment or guest house of some type, but the name of the place escapes me. The restaurant is Gabby's, and their burgers and fries were good. The ambience was excellent, the staff just great. Do let me know once theyr'e on Trip, so I can give them the review they deserve.

Service is very slow, cannot deliver 5 scrambled egg and bacon breakfast to the table at one time, Like the cook only has one pan to cook with. Prices are good if you have plenty of time to wait for your food.

It is like you are inside a dollhouse! The food is tasty and yummy and priced reasonably. Their baby back ribs is super delicious as well as the Carmen Salad.

During previous visits, I've tried most of whats on their menu and have been very much satisfied. Their Meatzza pizza and Carbonara are just a couple of their must-tries. Just a bit pricey for the average rural Filipino but for the urban dweller, and considering their large servings, I say its very reasonable. Ambiance is homey and warm. I love... More

I love everything about the Bistro, from the decor to the layout of the restaurant and most especially the FOOD! They do a great job with their breakfast meals, which are big and filling, and very tasty! The pizzas are always good too, especially the Ancho-Garlic. Other must try dishes include: Cajun Chicken, Adobo a la gabby and Golden Fried... More

The menu is very diverse and original. A lot of foreign influences, French, Italian etc. It has something for everyone. The food is excellent and prepared with care. I ate here a few times and all of my chosen dishes were amazing! The staff are super friendly and very helpful. The seating areas are decorated beautiful.

I had their Shrimp Mongolian Rice and I found the sauce to be too much. It was too strong for me. It was a shame because of the sumptuous amount of shrimp and veggies. A little adjustment on the sauce and that would have been perfect. I had their Cuba Libre too and after that the plams of my hands... More

If there is anything I especially like with the place - it has got to be its ambience. Attached to a hotel of interesting and fun facade (Hotel Florentina), the diner has its own vibe that makes it one of the restaurant must-trys in Dumaguete. They have a huge selection of food from salads to burgers to pastas to pizzas... More
