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

Fantastic dinner tonight in Gabes Diner, Stirling. Great fish, perfect steaks and attentive service. We absolutely loved everything. Wish we lived closer to visit again. Highly recommended.

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

Family and friends have mentioned Gabes Diner before but we've never managed to visit. Popped in for lunch today....and was very pleasantly surprised at the menu choices. All food is made from scratch and the portion sizes are very good. There was an extensive daily specials board also. Staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. Will definitely...

Visited here after being very kindly accomodated by a very helpful man on phone who managed to squeeze us in last minute! Such a warm cosy little gem of a place. Menu varied but we were going to cinema so didn't want a huge meal. We actually both chose a starter with extra side dishes of chips and flat bread.... More

The Mac n cheese is great. Fabulous variety of specials albeit some a bit too fancy and complicated. The restaurant isn't licensed so take your own bottle if you fancy! Staff are lovely.
