My friend and I had a stopover flight in Dumaguete City. The people there recommended Gabby's Bistro to visit and try some of their foods for us first timer tourist there. The resto has a beautiful location because it is near in the boulevard plus its amazing interior decors that feel you lived in community seen in cartoons. We ordered... More

I was quite excited to try Gabby's Bistro because of recommendations from friends. The decor outside and inside were already interesting. I ordered the caesar salad and a pasta dish. It was not what I expected at all. It was disappointing. The menu said romaine, I got iceberg that was not so fresh anymore. My pasta was too oily. I... More

My gf and I had lunch there and it was fairly average. I had a bbq chicken sandwich and my gf had chicken adobo. Both dishes were good and fairly priced. Service was good but there were not many customers there at the time. We also had breakfast there the next day and the pancakes were pretty decent. A great... More

OK, to qualify this opinion I have to say I'm not a great fan of deep pan pizzas, instead preferring thin and crispy bases. The restaurant is a nice environment to be in - apart from the outdoor fans which can be set to on or off and nowhere in between. The staff are courteous and friendly too. Drinks: ice... More

My friends and I went to the DEF party in dumaguete recently and before the party we had an amazing dinner at Gabby's bistro and was really amazed at the serving size of each meal. The food was good and they offered selections that are not usual so it was a very good dining experience for us.

This place on the second floor of a building that was once a palatial house is a surprise when it comes to food. It looked yuppy, with most clients looking like they are at some local university or just fresh out of school. But when our gorup of four ordered four different things, we were absolutely delighted! Go for it... More

The place is where you want to dine and chill at the same time..The place is full of cool art installations you can't not take pictures with. One (not so) bad thing about this place is their staff. They were absent minded and some were slow. I don't know. Maybe the morning staff are more active.

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.
