“Excellent Food”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I was treated to lunch here as a Birthday treat. It was delightful from start to finish. It is a small restaurant but was fairly busy, it has a nice atmosphere and the staff are definitely very friendly. Had a fantastic starter - Isle of Mull Scallops with a creamy bacon and sweetcorn purree accompanied with Stornaway Black Pudding. It was mouth watering delicious. My main was fillet steak which melted in your mouth, the home made chips are fab too. Shared pudding with my husband as we were both full but the Lemon and Lime cheesecake was just fantastic, the flavour was lovely and the cheescake was light and creamy. Defintely worth a visit.

“Excellent”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Visited this small restaurant yesterday for the first time and was amazed. Gabe's Diner is a fantastic culinary experience not to be missed. All the food was delicious! Even though we did not have a reservation and restaurant was quite busy, atmosphere and staff were very welcoming and helpful. I will definitely be back and recommend this place to friends and family!

“Beautiful food in an unlikely setting”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

I have been treated to a lunch and a dinner in Gabe's Diner. The outside is unexciting, situated in a car-park behind the cinema, and the name really gives no clue about the delightful food inside.
I ate a dahl soup for lunch here, it was beautiful, delicately spiced and every mouthful needed to be savoured.
I returned for an anniversary dinner with my husband, and had a very generous portion of perfectly cooked lamb shanks on black pudding base - divine. At night, the slightly utilitarian setting becomes cosy - and there is a woodburning stove for cold days.
They also produce pizzas, burgers and great chips.How the staff produce so much great food in such a small space is quite amazing. I look forward to returning.
