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.

Very nice place

Nice place to dine and have a few drinks. Mostly amercan/italian food. They have a wide variety of desserts that taste great. Their bar list especially beers are also various. Would have given a perfect score but their service is slow. Will come back here to try other meals on the menu

Heaven! The food is just so delicious! Ordered the four sided pizza and the Fish and Chips. The home made tar sauce is very yummy! The place is so cozy. Esp during night time. Prices are reasonable. They even have a bottomless drink for only 50php. It couldn't get any better than that! My friend ordered the pesto chicken pasta.... More

Writing this review real time. read previous reviews on this and was warned about not sitting outside as they tend to ignore people outside. first off, we were a big group of about 20 people. so even if we were seated outside, it should not have been a problem for the staff to notice us. Cons: they did not clean... More

Cheap place. The toasted bread was so dry, the butter was finally margarine, the bacon was replaced with spam ham (the one in can that is cheaper than any meat), and the juice were just from powder.

We've been visiting Dumaguete for a few years now and have always passed on going to Gabby's. During this last trip we met some friends there for breakfast and had a very nice experience. The service was great, good food and with the extensive menu, we'll be back again to try more. The hotel portion of the facility also looked... More

I went there to eat with my girlfriend and at the begging everything was good, they kept serving the food on time as we order everything at once. The worse came after. We ordered more food and it never came we asked for a follow up and yet it never came. We waited for 30 minutes to hear that the... More

Crappy service. The waiters and waitresses put effort into ignoring customers. You have to chase them down to order, chase them down to pay, chase them down to ask a question. It would be nice if there was at least one restaurant in Dumaguete that knew how to treat customers.

My partner and I are in Dumaguete/Valencia to research the place for future visits. I found Gabby's Bistro on trip advisor and was convinced by the many positive reviews. We were looking for a restaurant that served adobo (my partner's favorite), and read a review that Gabby's had the best adobo. SHO'NUFF as they would say back home. Without a... More

Since they nicknamed Dumaguete City as the 'City of Gentle People', I thought they would be hospitable with tourists per se. When I came in for my first dinner in the city, servers were just looking at me and did not greet me nor lead me to a vacant table (note that there only few vacant left). With patience, I... More
