Great place in the Market, come for cocktails or a light meal before you go out to dance, or spend it with a loved one. Nice food, great ambience and the background music makes you want to dance. Was hoping to see a DJ or Live Music next time.

Awful experience, the waiter was not paying attention to us, I got a refund of cash on my hand randomly, music was too loud, and lastly the food and cocktails took a whole hour. Not coming back and will not recommend this place to anyone.

Great music and they play live sports too. Shame the food and cocktails were average, although jalapeño poppers were insane! If you’re looking for a beer and a nice vibe then great. Staff very friendly.

We enjoyed our evening at Gabeto. Good vibe, comfortable seating and great décor. The food was great and there was no issue made when we requested changes to the listed ingredients to suit fussy children. The only slight irritation was the music. Bit loud, especially if it's not your favourite genre....

The service here was second to none, really efficient and on the ball. The food was good but the fajita filling is extremely spicy - too much for 3 out of 5 of us. I had a very nice veggie burger and chips. The churro dessert was delicious though one of us did not like the cinnamon/ toffee dip. Toilets are confusing and not great. There are 2 sets of toilets you can use but neither were particularly clean.

Restaurant was nice but didn’t realise our voucher was limited to a set menu. Set menu was poor and we would have rather ordered off the usual menu. Was very quiet for a Friday

The Place was great and we loved the Salsa lesson going on, but the Service was unbelievably appalling, our waiter appeared (when we did manage to get his attention) to be in a VERY bad mood. The food was average Chicken Fajita's I did not know chicken could be that tough!!!

The chicken skewers were undone (3 people had them and 2 of them had this issue) and the service was slow despite the place not being that busy. We waited quite a while for the cocktails and the server was nice enough to realize it was getting a bit ridiculous and gave us 50% off the cocktails, which was good of him but would have preferred the cocktails to arrive on time in the first place as we had to go to another place and where pressed for time.
The place looks very nice and it's in a nice location. Just don't go there for the food and expect some wait.

Service was incredibly slow. One waiter, one bar staff and one chef for a room full of people during lunch hour. Food was mediocre and because service was so slow, most of it was cold. Music was far too loud, like they forgot it wasn't the evening and that it was a restaurant and not a night club at that moment in time. Wouldn't recommend as it's definitely not worth the price.

The service was OK - probably understaffed as there was only one waitress who was starting on that same day and her manager.
Food was not great though - the nachos were soaked in that fake cheesy starch sauce and the chorizo tapa was 50% onion.
There was a salsa class going on when we went, so I would recommend going there only for drinks and dancing.

The best thing about the place, is the music, dancing and general ambiance. The food was poor compared to other Latin American choices around London and it was not cheap. However the staff were great and always willing to be helpful.

Food was disappointing, ambience upstairs was dry in comparison to downstairs. The lighting upstairs is too bright which makes you feel a bit exposed. We were also placed right next to the kitchen window so it felt like we were in the way a little bit.

I was very much looking forward to the Friday night where we were booked for dinner at Gabeto. However this turned into a disaster. We were booked for 9pm - while booking, also by phone, we were not informed the kitchen closes at 10. Half of our party arrived at 9 and half at 9.40

At 9.25 the waiter said we have to order food by 10pm giving us just over half hour. At 9:30 we could see and pretty much hear the chef making aggressing hand movements to the waiter and telling him that we have to order now as he wants to go home. First of all we found this very rude and felt some sort of aggression from the BOH.

We then ordered and the food was terrible. We ordered the sirloin steak medium it came well done. The garnish of one other persons plate was burnt. (I have photos to prove it). At this point we couldn’t send the food back as the kitchen was closed.

So food overall was bad.

Service wise, the waiters have apologised but didn’t seem to be able to do much or even try to pay a little more attention. We ordered 2 margaritas we only got 1, I had to wait another 15 mins for the second one, by this time my friend needed another one so the night just had lots of downs.

I can see the waiters really trying but honestly, I work in hospitality and this is no way ‘good service’


Unfortunately this experience has been very bad for me, and I will not be returning.

I ordered the one vegetarian main option which seemed to be a can of chickpeas mixed with canned tomatoes served on rice with no flavour. Mocktail was vanilla syrup that was too sweet to drink.

Had to provide cc to make reservation. Difficult to locate-poor signage. No one to receive us upon finding the location; had to seek out a waiter that was chit chatting with a colleague in order to get seated. Once we got the waiter’s attention, we advised we had booked via Open Table, he did not ask name or time, but rather said, “sit wherever.” With that said, food was very good. Bathrooms were accessible by exiting the restaurant and going to a dimly light stairway to the second floor that is accessible by the general public; shady.

Made a booking for a valentines meal. We arrived only to be told the booking didn’t exist, despite showing the waitress proof on my phone. We’d traveled up from Wales and we were absolutely starving. We were seated in the downstairs bar area, not the upstairs restaurant as booked. The food came out and was very plain considering the price! Later found out that we’d ordered from the bar menu not the “Al La Carte” restaurant menu (our waitress didn’t make us at all aware of the choice in menu). Not at all impressed by the toilet facilities, which could only be accessed by leaving the building - they seemed to be communal Camden market toilets. The waitress seemed to have a problem with us all night. I was not impressed by anything. It was massive let down and to be frank ruined my whole evening.

It seemed the restaurant had a ‘staffing’ issue. The server we had was keen but had to cover too many tables - plus the process of ordering/ drinks was not that fluid. The music was good and menu choice. The bathrooms are not acceptable for a serious venue.

Really nice environment, vibrant and fun but quality of food and price were not well balanced. We complained about amount of chips with the burguer and they brought a free portion of chips, which was nice. The ribs are tasty but again, a bit too pricy for what it was. Nice place for a drink and some dancing though

Will give more for the service if not given the invoice for the discretionary charge. May go back after a while.

I booked for my boyfriend and I to come here before a gig for what I hoped would be a great Cuban experience but sadly it was not. The service was slow and the staff fairly rude (despite the place being very quiet). The food sadly tasted like it had all come out of pre-bought jars and was all served luck warm. The cocktails and drinks menu was its saving grace however as I did enjoy a couple great gin-based drinks and the music was good.
