This restaurant has not disappointed us yet. And we've been there a few times now. The atmosphere is relaxing and the food is simply delicious. I would recommend it to anyone.

We went for lunch for my moms birthday and had an amazing time. Loved every moment and felt very welcome from the moment we walked in the door. The food and the service is very good and I would love to go back as often as possible.

Absolutely love this place! The food is amazing. From seafood, to cheesy tramezzinis, to grills and breakfasts. Wide selection. Yummy! And the portions are quite generous. Very reasonably priced aswell. Buffet breakfast, they fill your plates. Cosy seating. I go here quite often.

The revamped Cafe Gitano definitely gets the thumbs up from me. More spacious, seating more comfortable, home away from home. For the sports minded there are tv's. At times the restaurant does get too noisy, the staff is accommodating and friendly. They have good cocktails. The food is wholesome except I'm not too keen on ordering anything with rice, it...

My wife and I do many visits to Cafe Gitano and have found the service exceptionally good. The food is excellent and of good proportions, but more importantly is the friendly attidude of the staff, who are constantly at your service. Keep up the good work. Dave and Val.

The place is excellent for a Sunday breakfast (and any other occasion) the staff are really friendly and helpful, always happy and smiling.The food is also very good. And they have Wifi (not so sure is that's is free or not) Cafe Gitano is he best place to go for a meal or even a coffee.

My husband and myself have found Gitano to be a home from home experience. Love the attention to detail and couldn't imagine going anywhere else. We have introduced Gitano to many friends and colleagues and they have too now made this their 'home' :) Val and Dave Bolton
