We went here once, and won't return. The food itself was like what you would get at a cheap cafe, but was priced like restaurant food. I had a salad that was drowing in some balsamic creme.

This was 1pm on a Friday. Surely this is something you tell customers when you give them the menus. I had read the... More

If you are looking for somewhere to go in Hout Bay during the day for a lovely lunch, this is the place to go. Staff very friendly and the food is well priced and tasty. Its a wee bit out the way at rear of shopping precinct but worth a visit.

It is a favourite with locals & we revisited recently & found the food great value & the staff very friendly. We like plain black Coffee but with good coffee flavours not that watered... More

Gabriella's is well situated for shoppers and has over the past year or so improved enormously. There is a very varied menu ranging from sandwiches to full meals and the staff and both friendly and polite. Worth a visit.
