Been there about four years ago and it was failure back then so I thought maybe they have improved. WRONG. they've got even worse. I walked in the empty restaurant and three female were behind the counter watching local tv-series from cellphone. One raised her head but didn't say anything. I sat down and the girl who noticed me coming... More

I live in Dumaguete so my wife and I haven't been to any one of the Gabby restaurants in awhile so we decided to get a quick breakfast. We went to the restaurant on the boulevard and as always we enjoyed the food but the wait staff was abysmal, couldn't be bothered to come out from behind the counter. While... More

- Big serving - reasonable price for foods - baby back ribs 😍 - price range Php 200-400 - cozy place to hang with friends - visit their branch at Florentina homes its good for picture taking. - mango shake taste like water and a little mango flavor on it 😣

Being so close to our hostel we thought this would be a good choice. Despite the colourful surroundings, the restaurant itself was a big let down. Unenthusiastic staff, with many of the items unavailable on the menu. We collectively ordered many of the mains and you could tell it was made up of cheap and basic ingredients, full of additives...

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

Description
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.
