“Bank holiday nosh up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Hi me and my wife were here 5th may for sunday dinner and again didn't disappoint . good food
well presented and cooked perfectly and decent sized portions even for me .
The two for one deal is the best in town and there`s plenty choice ,the staff are excellent and make you feel at home and could not do enough for you , cannot wait to come back hopefully
sooner rather than later and would always recommend the gables .

“lacks atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Went with a bunch of workmates to celebrate a 60th birthday. Tables were joined in a long row, which meant only the folks that sat in the middle would be able to hold a conversation with most people there. Service was okay, the distinctly lacks atmosphere, the food was okay but it would seem that everything comes with a peppercorn sauce. A couple of the girls had the ham salad, some cold odd coloured ham placed ontop of lettuce and stuff, big serving of grated cheese and a huge spoon of coleslaw.... not lookin good to be honest..... chips were peely wally and there was an odd loooking... what I thought looked like boiled onion but turned out to be a tastless boiled see thru cabbage...

Nope for me this being in Gables for the first time nothing would tempt me back in... so very sorry.

“Perfect for any occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Always welcomed in a friendly manner, we visit the gables at least once per week. The 2 4 1 menu is fantastic and have a great selection to choose from. Food is always spot and staff very helpful. Always a first choice for our friends and family.

“Always a good idea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

My family and I go there every now and then, as we know they always have delicious food for a great price. We love the 2 for 1 deal but we do go out of those times sometimes and pay the full price. Great for something quick or for a special occasion.

“Great Value...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Go to The Gables if shopping in Irvine...not a lot of places to actually eat in the centre of Irvine.The Gables in reasonably pirced with good quality food. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated,clean and the staff are very helpful. Parking is a bit difficult but there is disabled parking right outside.
