Gaby's Seaside Restaurant
453 Head Street
This simple, family-run business located in Esquimalt, by the naval base, deserves more credit. The simple interior of the restaurant belies the friendly, homely feel of the food.
The menu includes a lot of traditional soul food you'd expect from a cafe/restaurant. However, it's step-up from your usual fare, and you can tell the owners and chef prepare everything with more than a little love for their trade.
The restaurant includes a sports bar area away from the main dining area that stretches all the way around the premises providing ample room for all the patrons to relax.
Sunday's are a special treat, a perfect roast beef dinner of quality taste and portion that doesn't take too big a hit on your wallet.
The staff are warm and familiar as befits a family owned establishment adding to the overall excellent experience. Highly recommended.
