My husband and I love Gabes, my favourite choice is their steak sandwich, this is only supposed to be a lunch option, however on various occasions I have been allowed to purchase this for my evening meal! It's such a friendly atmosphere and gives a feeling of being abroad! Prices are well matched to portion size.......I have never been disappointed... More

This place is amazing! Return here every time we visit family in Scotland (sometimes more than once per visit!) the food is to die for, the service is great and it's great value for money.

Visited this week and had the most delicious good - all home cooked. From the outside, this almost looks like a bus station, but I had been recommended so decided to give it a try. The waitress was most helpful and very accommodating - but the food was incongruously good compared to the surroundings. Maybe a thorough clean and lick... More

Delicious lunch in unexpectedly cosy restaurant with unexpectedly good food. First lets get the setting out of the way: this looks a bit like a large bus shelter off a car park near the cinema, not the setting you'd expect for well flavoured plates cooked with personality. Inside it's wood all around, you could be in a bothy or a... More

Decent place for Stirling. They are always willing to do a good player on gluten free fish and chip. Like the place very much.

As regular visitors to Gabe's Diner, we enjoyed another great meal last night. Standard is always good, with friendly staff and the chef is always willing to accommodate my wife's gluten intolerance, by altering any standard dish to suit, where possible.

I just love this place and always make a beeline for it when in Stirling. Although it doesn't look much from the outside, the quality of the food is outstanding. If the sweet potato, coconut and chilli soup is on you'd be a fool to miss it: my favourite soup in the world, the way they make it here! My... More

Popped in here whilst staying across road in Premier Inn for a late breakfast.As its quite small inside,all the tables were taken.Luckily as it was a nice day we were able to sit outside.Best to book in advance as the menu is good and varied and you wont be disappointed.
