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.

Lovely place! Best Ice Cream!

Been here with my cousins and family. So far I love and enjoy the food. The ambiance of the place is very nice. Whats unique about this restaurant is every table they have a bell for you to call the waitress/waiter. Like Like Like. I would recommend this place.

Good food, reasonably priced and if you're a tourist, this place is the best "pa picture2" spot in Dumaguete. :)

My husband and I came here just about 3 nights ago. I'm not sure why a lot has complained about the "slow order" but we were satisfied with the service and over all dining experience. I love the interiors as well. We had their Cajun Chicken and a steak for my husband. It was superb for about P600 shell out!!!... More

Went on a business trip to Dumaguete. While there, my boss decided to let me try a famous restaurant. Gabby's Bistro is famous for its chicken meals. We tried a variety of chicken meals. My boss also said the place is famous for the Salo Halo, which is good for sharing, as it was enormous. All in all, we had... More

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.
