Gaby’s restaurant has been a go-to spot for authentic Meican food since its inception in 1989. Named after the daughter of the owner, Gaby’s started with humble beginnings as a small comida corrida. Over the years, their loyal clientele allowed them to build up and create the fine restaurant that is perched overlooking the malecon today.
Three years ago, son and general manager, Lic. Julio Cesar overhauled the restaurant. Updating the menu and improving the décor, Gaby’s is now a sophisticated yet authentic Mexican fine dining restaurant. It is a wonderful spot for large groups with a number of spaces that offer group dining or enjoy a secluded romantic spot with your honey.
The restaurant includes many well-loved staples such as mole, arrachera, tamales, Mahi Mahi Veracruz style, ceviche, enchiladas and tortilla soup. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, customers can enjoy the tropical lushness of the inside courtyard with water feature or outside on one of the three levels of open-air patios. Gaby’s is participating in Restaurant Week with a $199 peso menu which includes your choice of an appetizer, main course and desert. The menu features a wonderful selection of local favourites including fresh spinach salad with beets, goats cheese and pecan nuts, the patriotic chile en nogada with the perfect blend of ground beef, nuts and raisins and a very generous slice of flan. Other offerings include Black Bean soup, Empanadas, Chicken Chimichanga and Morelia style Enchiladas.
Dinner was delightful. The food was fresh and well presented. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. The sangria was crisp and tangy. Every night Gaby’s projects a selection of Mexican movies, videos, documentaries on the wall facing the restaurant. This offers a wonder distraction after watching the sun set.
