Improve this listing
Hours:
Sun - Sat 7:00 am - 11:00 pm
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.

Went here for a couple meals. Thought the first time we ate here might have just been a bad day for the place since we heard so many positives..NOPE...meats were overcooked n dry...salads had wilted goopy lettuce...sides were so-so. The best part of the dining experience was the mango shakes and dessert...Id recommend the Oreo cookie sundae. Lastly, service was... More

Food tastes only average. Service is at a snail's pace considering that there were only a very few diners when we ate our lunch. Disappointing.

Taking a group of over 35 people to this place was not a problem. They were able to seat us together without much of a problem. Although the food came out slow, which is to be expected with a large group, it was very tasty. Everybody in the group also enjoyed the shakes!

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
