Congratulations. My first ever 1 star rating. Such a pity cause the food was really good albeit overpriced. There was a glitch with the credit card machine and it showed an error. I did however get an sms that the transaction was successful and money off my account. Even after I showed this to the manager they insisted I pay... More

The quality isn't quite there for me but the portion sizes for the price is excellent. My chicken salad was very good, but the lettuce could have been fresher. OH enjoyed his lamb ribs but thought his chips were too salty. Maybe their burgers are better...

It makes a huge difference to us veggies that so e thought is put into the vegetarian menu. Huge range of milkshakes and delicious puddings. Nice outside seating area... More

We popped in for milkshakes only. We ordered two chocolate and orange rind milkshakes (there was no indication on the menu that this milkshake was not available), but the server returned after a couple of minutes to tell us that they were unable to make them, because they had no oranges. We were so disappointed. So we settled for the... More

The pork ribs were excellent, only outdone by the service provided by Irvyn, who made the evening a delightful experience. He was helpful, friendly and professional. The outdoor seating was wonderful, giving us a beautiful view of the harbor. We will return.

You can't help but order a delicious Milkshake even though you only went in for the scrumptious Burger. Wow, so difficult to make a choice because the range is so huge. We got a variety and then shared so we could taste more.... mmm and as for the burger, well, it is really smokey, just the way we like it... More

Gibson's specializes in a wide range of burgers and milkshakes. Even a Banter will find something to enjoy. At night, the outdoors seating is sheltered and comfortable.

Description
After 2 years of perfecting the perfect burger, we have a range of Gourmet Burgers as well as amazing succulent fall-off-the-bone ribs (pork, beef & lamb). We have just launched another 17 shakes to our already 40 Gourmet Shake range, which include Chocolate Brownie shake, Cheesecake shake as well as a huge flavour of fruit shakes (Blueberry, Summerburst & Black Cherry to name a few) and now also Gingerbread, Malva&Custard and Orange Blossom
