Gabe's is in an interesting location, down by the Vue Cinema. It was recommended to me a while ago by a friend. Lunch today was the first opportunity I had for a visit. Three old school friends looking for somewhere to lunch! It's very cosy and we were given a warm welcome on entry and seated right away despite it... More

We visit every year. We stay at gleneagles for a week and have a cinema day with friends and family. We go to Gabe's for lunch, dinner or both. We love good food and this among the best and at incredible prices From steak to duck to Thai stews and vegetarian options, not to mention the west coast scallops. All... More

I am amazed to see Gabes Diner not competing for Stirling's top spot on TripAdvisor. The menu is fantastic for breakfast lunch and dinner. The food served is always fantastic and the staff are faultless. No harm in phoning and booking a table as it is quite a small restaurant however we have never been turned away. Highly recommend!

All our dishes were cooked perfectly and provided a beautiful balance of flavours. We have eaten at Gabe's a number of times and have always been hugely impressed by the freshly cooked food. The service was friendly and accommodating and the stove kept us cosy on a November night.

Visited here with family. The menu has some lovely Asian twists and food is cooked to perfection. Loved it and would definitely come back. Servers were as helpful and friendly. The venue is cosy and has a lovely fire, great place to hide from the cold and wet and enjoy some lovely comfort food. The menu in this restaurant is... More

From the outside, Gabe's Diner does have the look of a bus shelter but do not be deceived. The food is excellent. My wife and I enjoyed a swift (less than an hour), pre-cinema dinner. I started with the oatmeal covered smoked haddock fishcakes (beautifully presented) and had the pea risotto (a generous portion). My wife had scallops & bacon... More

Went here with work mates for lunch and a banter with the owner. A very friendly and approachable man who will make your meal or snack an enjoyable experience. This is second time here as we also had our Christmas lunch there back when... As usual a variety of wonderful dishes of which I had the clam chowder absolutely delicious,... More

We decided to go to this diner for lunch, purely on the basis of a search of the best restaurants in Stirling whilst on a day trip there. As we drove onto the retail park where it is situated, my partner was not at all convinced due to it's unassuming appearance but we thought we'd give it a try. I... More
