Enjoyed our meals, wide choice on the menu. Attached to the Florentina hotel. Unusual but pleasant decor, attentive staff.

Service was fast and friendly. Food was fine - good sandwiches and poutine. Would go again if we were nearby.

We found Gabby's as one of the top places to go to so we went there. We were blown away. Menu selection and price Their menu was quite big; I had trouble choosing which one to order because there were so many. We finally settled with their BBQ Ribs (bestseller), beef and gravy meal, and cheesy fries (w bacon). Even... More

My friends and I always visit Gabby's Bistro whenever we're in Dumaguete. We did try their branch at Paseo Perdices but was sadly disappointed with the quality of food there. So we went back to our favorite place and was quite happy with our food choices (Shrimp scampi pasta, pizza with everything on it and cheesy fries). Although we did... More

The taste of their food is not consistent. Sometimes it is tasty sometimes it is not. But what is consistent in this place is the crappy service they provide to their customers. Congrats! The same issue with their Paseo Perdices branch.

My friend and I had a stopover flight in Dumaguete City. The people there recommended Gabby's Bistro to visit and try some of their foods for us first timer tourist there. The resto has a beautiful location because it is near in the boulevard plus its amazing interior decors that feel you lived in community seen in cartoons. We ordered... More

I was quite excited to try Gabby's Bistro because of recommendations from friends. The decor outside and inside were already interesting. I ordered the caesar salad and a pasta dish. It was not what I expected at all. It was disappointing. The menu said romaine, I got iceberg that was not so fresh anymore. My pasta was too oily. I... More

My gf and I had lunch there and it was fairly average. I had a bbq chicken sandwich and my gf had chicken adobo. Both dishes were good and fairly priced. Service was good but there were not many customers there at the time. We also had breakfast there the next day and the pancakes were pretty decent. A great... More

OK, to qualify this opinion I have to say I'm not a great fan of deep pan pizzas, instead preferring thin and crispy bases. The restaurant is a nice environment to be in - apart from the outdoor fans which can be set to on or off and nowhere in between. The staff are courteous and friendly too. Drinks: ice... More

Our resort driver (Antulang's driver) recommended we take our late lunch here, it was very near the city airport, maybe 5 minutes away. It is like a diner type, really new and cozy. I know it's also a hotel or apartment or guest house of some type, but the name of the place escapes me. The restaurant is Gabby's, and their burgers and fries were good. The ambience was excellent, the staff just great. Do let me know once theyr'e on Trip, so I can give them the review they deserve.
