Visited Gabes for the first a few nights ago and were welcomed by a friendly and smiling member of staff, which really set the tone for the evening. - The menu, does not stick to one 'Genre' of food, but does provide an array of dishes to try and please. Although, the food does match the vibe and name -... More

Have always loved Gabes and regularly go,sadly the new management lacks customer service skills, becoming rather irate if you dare to make a complaint. If you enjoy grit in your salad, bad attitude and a last minute service charge added to your bill after the event then it's the place to go. Such a shame as the food is usually... More

I have been meaning to try Gabe's for a while now, I've always thought it looked like an inviting little place. The restaurant is small, and filled up quickly after we arrived for dinner. It lacked in atmosphere a little, very quiet music and very bright lights make it lack in ambience a little. The specials boards are very confusing... More

This place obviously has ideas well above the reality of the food which is served up. Brunch was over-priced for the content - very mean portions, tasteless, bland sandwiches and one person received microwave blasted bacon and a miniscule, halved sausage on a dry roll with no butter. Regardless of what it says on the menu about sources of ingredients,... More

Popped in with colleagues for a quick bite to eat! Promptly seated, orders taken - what a lovely choice of menu options! I had the New York bagel which was beautiful and tasty! Food arrived quick which was good! Prices were reasonable and service good! Well worth a visit!

Gabe's is in an interesting location, down by the Vue Cinema. It was recommended to me a while ago by a friend. Lunch today was the first opportunity I had for a visit. Three old school friends looking for somewhere to lunch! It's very cosy and we were given a warm welcome on entry and seated right away despite it... More

We visit every year. We stay at gleneagles for a week and have a cinema day with friends and family. We go to Gabe's for lunch, dinner or both. We love good food and this among the best and at incredible prices From steak to duck to Thai stews and vegetarian options, not to mention the west coast scallops. All... More

I am amazed to see Gabes Diner not competing for Stirling's top spot on TripAdvisor. The menu is fantastic for breakfast lunch and dinner. The food served is always fantastic and the staff are faultless. No harm in phoning and booking a table as it is quite a small restaurant however we have never been turned away. Highly recommend!

All our dishes were cooked perfectly and provided a beautiful balance of flavours. We have eaten at Gabe's a number of times and have always been hugely impressed by the freshly cooked food. The service was friendly and accommodating and the stove kept us cosy on a November night.

Thank Charles G
