Description: Adjacent to the Peermont Mondior hotel is the News Cafe restaurant who blends the temptation of their original menu with the latest culinary trends. Food becomes art!Everyone knows News Cafe serves a good cocktail – good enough to win awards. With a couple of offbeat additions to the cocktail menu, there’s still the iconic Daiquiri, Martini and Mojito all in some new disguises.

“Terrible service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

The service was so bad that I refuse to go back. Also the food was pretty pricey and not very big portions.

“Eat there as regularly as your bank account lets you”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

The cost is a little pricey but other than that I have no complaints. Service is very good, with waiters being professional but willing to have a joke with you as well. Food is always delicious and if an ingredient is not available (which is quite common in Gabs) they are always ready with a substitution to your liking. The menus are very creative, appearing to be a newspaper, and there is a great variety. I have heard the cocktails are very strong as well :P

“Feels like you are not in Gabs.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

Loud music, chandeliers and hip scene makes you feel like you are in a trendy restaurant in a bigger city. Food is OK, as is service.

“Unpredictable quality (room-service)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

Unpredictable quality (room-service).
Used this restaurant for room service while staying at Peermont Mondior. Food OK, but inconsistent in quality and taste.
