“Tasty food, good service, away from the maddening crowd.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We had a pasta and a pizza here, both yummy and super filling. The waiter was friendly, helpful and efficient. One of the best things about Gkel was its quiet ambience. No loud music or banging bass and drums like almost everywhere else. Recommended if you want a great meal at a good price and to talk while you eat.

“Innovative and original with good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

Went there for a dinner with my wife, on her advice. We had a very good time. The food is original, simple but prepared with taste and not something you will find just next door. There is research in the meals... The service is fast and friendly. Prices are very reasonable and the food excellent. The decoration is quite something as well, in the kitsch-chic style.

“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2013 via mobile

It's actually a 3.5 stars (good). Very nice place, great atmosphere, polite and friendly service but quite standard food for the price. Been there on Christmas Eve and it was very pleasant.
