Fab wee bistro diner. The food is fantastic. The staff very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much bother for them The tarragon steak and mushroom sandwich was beautiful and the homemade crumble and custard very rustic looking not puréed mushy fruit and flat crumble. Mmmmm

I visited Gabes on Sunday afternoon, the food was fresh and tasted fantastic. Good value for money. The only criticism was that service was slow, mainly due to one waitress working all the tables. A minor thing considering the quality of food. I will be back, their breakfast menu looked goog too.

Popped in here for lunch to fuel up before a wedding. Lovely and cosy inside with the stove going. Opted for a chicken burger which was on the specials board - very moist and flavoursome. A toblerone baked cheesecake for dessert was excellent and the coffee was lovely. Service was efficient and friendly with staff happy to discuss the menu... More

Called here for an early evening dinner following a day working locally. My vegetarian meal option was absolutely delicious - as were the meat options enjoyed by my colleagues. I will definitely be returning

I really liked this bistro. Smells of fresh baked goods, has a nice fireplace. The food is fresh. I got the chowder which was delicious and quite filling. The coffee was nice too. Staff are attentive and very friendly.

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!
