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.

It was good for the price

I first went to Gabby's back in 2012. I had their huge breakfasts, so fast forward 2016, we came back for brunch. I have to say, the food was good for how much we paid for it but not as good as i expected it to be.

Very unprofessional staff. They don't know how to please and handle guests properly. It was very disappointing for first-timer like us. We will surely NOT recommend this restaurant to our client. Foods are "Okey lang". Not that good at all.

Five wait staff, only one other customer, I had to get my own menu after ten minutes. Then I had to walk over to the counter to interrupt the staff discussion every time I wanted to order it get a drink. I haven't seen service this bad since three years ago in Panama. The food was just OK.

From LILO-an , Cebu, we needed to eat before our family continue our drive from Dumaguete to Bacolod City ( they Mabinay). Gabby' bistro was a welcome delight!

Gabby's bistro has a vibe that could lighten up the mood especially with regards to the design (in Bantayan specifically) and their food was justifiably delicious. Except for the carbonara though. It was creamy but bland. I suggest you visit the place in the evening so you could truly appreciate the coziness but morning would be great if you want... More

This restuarant seems to be popular with locals and visitors likewise. They serve International dishes, including Asian fusion. Service was not attentive, however after we've signalled them, our requests were fulfilled rather quickly.

The food was great. The ambience was also great. They had a big, long pillow/foam on the floor under the table which was rather gave an uncomfortable feeling. The place was clean enough. The food was tasty.

My husband and I together with my family decided to have dinner at Gabby's bistro. The waitress serving us was so rude and looked like she had a bad day. We were all in high spirits after having a nice swim so we let it pass and ordered. Everyone's food came except my husband who ordered a pizza. After 10... More

I can't believe how nasty the waiters are here. It's unbelievable. They forget your orders, no utensils after a long wait, takes 26 minutes to get a water!!

This is for the original B&B location. I would definitely go back because the food was really good, great portions, I like the options but the service was mediocre. Maybe they were just super busy.
