My wife and I chose Cafe Gitano as we have had meal there about 2 years back and found it quite pleasant. When looking for a place for a Sunday meal we chose Cafe Gitano and went there. It was quite busy and not surprising as it was a rainy day and a lot of people chose to go to... More

As my daughter goes there often, the waiters know exactly what she drinks, and what her favourite dishes are. I opted for the Chili Beef Quesadilla. To die for, and a must try. As... More

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...
