This place isn't not about ambiance but the views of golf course is nice and you can watch airplanes land at SFO while you eat. This place is about artistic and delicious food. The flavors from the chips and salsas to main course is really done well. The portions aren't ridiculously big that you feel overly full or need a to go container. They combine common Mexican dishes we are all familiar with into pieces of art. You would expect to find this level of culinary food presentation at a high end restaurant but the price is very reasonable. My veggie burrito was 8.38. I have stayed at hotel nearby before and thought about trying out this place but find must Mexican cuisine boring and overdone. I'll be back here next time I'm here on business.

Stopped in while in town for conference. Dropped off by taxi driver who was not convinced we were in the right place--"it's in the golf center?" As in other reviews, not much to look at here but...food is top notch. Presentation is amazing--lots of care in preparation.

It is one of those things... sort of hard to find, but it is in the club house of the Burlingame Golf Center. You walk in and there are about 8 tables and not really any wait staff other than Gabriel's son, who is really doing his best to keep up. Don't expect anything fancy, but Gabriel's smile, personality, willingness to make his customers happy and have a great Mexican food experience. My wife, Danny our 14 year old son and myself had a burrito assortment and to make a long story short, they were amazing!!!! I wish that Gabriel would have the means to "professionalize" his place but the taste and food quality, makes up for the rest of their shortcomings.

The food is the reason to go here. Each dish is beautifully presented as well as super tasty. Even the person in the family who is least enthusiastic about Mexican food (me) loves the food at G&D. The restaurant is kinda hidden in a golf club. The atmosphere is so-so. Service is efficient counter service - nothing special but good.

Glad we read the reviews first. The ambience may be lacking, but the food is amazing! Loads of flavor and the presentation is gorgeous. Looking at the plates, you'd think you were dining in a five star restaurant. The chef obviously takes pride in the food he serves. I would definitely come back if I'm ever in the area again.
