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....
Thanks for your review, we are delighted you enjoyed your visit and that we were able to accomodate for your children! Hope to see you back again soon!
Food, ambience, and service were very good. Drinks were reasonably priced. Loved the layout and decor. Will be returning soon.
Thanks for your review! We look forward to welcoming you again very soon!
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.
Thanks for leaving your feedback which we will review going forward to improve standards throughout the venue. We are happy you enjoyed the food and do hope to welcome you back to Gabeto again soon!
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
Hi, Thanks for taking the time to time to leave your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the restaurant and will ensure all custmers using a voucher going forward are notified of this during the booking process. We do hope to welcome you back again.
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!!!
Very good and friendly service
Defiantly will be back ..
Hospitality was very good
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.
We had an amazing night at Gabeto!! Staff was polite and very helpful!! We will definetely come back!!
Lovely atmosphere at nights! And Great mojitos too!
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.
Good place to eat indoors in the evening in Camden with access to the club/bar downstairs afterwards. Friendly service, decent food (from set menu options)
Only for drinks, food was basic for Camden Tacos were so small.
Serveurs sympathiques, endroit calme en octobre. Nourriture correcte.
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.
First time Gabeto. Met with ex for a catch up. Had a good time. Food was alright and atmosphere good for close conversation. Had a great time upstairs dancing later in the night.
Used a Groupon that gave a choice of 9 tapas. But the food wasnt that great. Less tapas and more a mix of pub/fried food. Wasnt a fan
Hi there James, Thank you for taking the time to review our venue! I'm sorry to see that you didn't judge our food to reflect the high standards of the venue! We hope that you will return to us soon so that we can deliver you a smoother experience!
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.

Tacos weren’t amazing. Guy who served was awesome. Pretty loud, fun for dancing and Latin music
Hi there! Thank you for leaving such a wonderful review! We're glad you enjoyed your night out with us, if you come back on a Sunday night we also have live music and Salsa classes which we think you'll love!
Rude staff at the bar, slow service at the table, mediocre food. Friend sent back his salad because there was no chicken in it even though requested in the Caesar Salad !. Filthy toilets near to the kitchen. Place for drinks only.

The restaurant did not receive your booking. Even though I put card details in.
Not very happy with OpenTable
A fun place to go to before a night out - very vibrant and great energy. We really liked the food too.
There was no booking. It was a party night. After 9pm on the weekend is not a great time for this place. They stop serving food.
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.
Love this place fantastic atmosphere, portions of food a bit small for the price however.
Definitely recommend for birthdays
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
Live music at very loud level, enhanced the ambiance though. Not a place for conversation. Tasty tapas but disappointing about missing menu items. Seems hesitating about serving Groupon customers. Will give more for the service if not given the invoice for the discretionary charge. May go back after a while.
Good atmosphere and great service from the organiser who arranged for us very quickly a table downstairs after her dinner on the first floor. Food - it is OK, but they can improve.
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.
Staff were friendly but the service was appalling . Drinks took a very long time and the food was not good.
Great food and lovely staff. Great Sunday afternoon out.
I was very disappointed about the food. QUALITY was very poor, presentation and flavour very bland and simple. Did not worth the money we paid.
Service was really slow. Staff was not enough. We had to approach the staff in order to be served.
Prices definitely too high for the quality on food and drinks you offer.
Great atmosphere once the music started. Ok food. Loved the drummer !!!! Glad I found Gabeto and will def recommend
Gabeto was a great place to go for my 21st birthday we was an hour late and the handled it really well. The guy that greeted us at the front was very kind was definitely recommended and will be back soon!!
The lady who wears the blazer looked after us very well and provided a free birthday desert for my daughter. My only recommendation would be regarding entry in to the venue. No one was based at either sides of the doors to greet people, so we stood around for a bit not knowing who to speak to.
Enjoyed visit to Gabeto. Music and vibe was great. Drinks were pricey.. either that or I was overly charged £12 for a rum and coke. And service was very very slow.. apart from that it was great. Will be visiting again.
Gabeto is rated 3.6 stars by 55 OpenTable diners.
