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.

Gabby's Bistro inside Florentina Homes offers good food, drinks, and music to good-looking and gorgeous diners and party-goers, both hotel in-house guests or walk-in, in cozy setting and friendly atmosphere, The price is good as well :)

went with a client there for a cup of coffee and sweets one afternoon. Felt in love with the apple crumble. Maybe too sweet for some. An extreme sugar rush. I love it. The whole place is a very lovely setup, if you are into a bit cheesy design. I went there next day again, for a sugar rush and... More

If you order the grilled salmon, ask to halve the rice that it goes with it...unless of course, you need to carbo-load, hehe!

What I like about this place is the cute decor and ambience. It lifts the spirit. I'm not particularly fond of their food though. The presentation is good but the taste is something else. Some of the staff are ok while others are not friendly enough. But I would definitely still go back because this is my son's happy place.... More

Gabby's Bistro used to be "up there" some years back. Somehow, the quality continued to drop in the recent months. I celebrated my 28th birthday there. My buddies chose the place. I gave my OK as I used to have a lot of options at the place based on memory. When our appetizers arrived, we were utterly disappointed. Everything fried... More

We stayed at Florentina Homes because of the quirky concept and decor. Gabby's Bistro was the hotel's restaurant. We went in one afternoon for snacks and found the decor to be really cute, kind of like TGIF but on a provincial scale. Food was ok-ish, as one reviewer cited. What got my attention and made me want to write a... More

Main meals need more work but a great creative place to have morning or afternoon tea. Big portions - so you may like to share :)

the food was ok-ish.. it was probably because i ordered pork adobo which was not the restaurant's specialty food. i thought it would come as a 'comfort food' adobo which I'm used to but the waiter brought me a big slab of meat which I had to painstakingly slice to satisfy my adobo craving. service was poor as well, took...
