This restaurant had been recommended to us by a number of people and we were quite disappointed. We did however arrive on Easter Monday, but were unprepared for lack of menu items. I decided on oysters for starter and ocean trout with fresh asparagus. Sadly, they were out of oysters and asparagus!! There were only 5 or 6 menu items so options were very limited. $6.50 for 2 slices of bread with oil and balsamic vinegar was a bit rich I thought!!

We had a lovely lunch at this very nice restaurant. The view over the small bay is absolutely beautiful. One of the nicest restaurant views surely. The restaurant is operated by a very warm and friendly husband and wife team. The food was great. My fish was as fresh as it could possibly be. The restaurant is down a side road so look out for the turn-off - it’s well worth it.

Gabriel's on the Bay is in an excellent location amongst tall trees with a beautiful view over Stewarts Bay that you can see from your table.

There is plenty of choice on the menu including some local produce.

All six of us enjoyed our meals and the desserts.

The service is excellent and the meals arrived promptly.

We will definitely be back.

We went as part of a small and very good tour company for three capes walks so stayed here as well
Agree with most if not all of the reviews on poor to average quality of food
These are not chefs with talent but bored cooks who operate at the lazy end of the spectrum. Given the quality of food anywhere else in tassie including all the pubs who offer more talent and variety.
The key problem here is extremely poor management and staff training. There is simply no accountability
As part of our groups contract with restaurant we were to be provided decent hot breakfast and quality gourmet lunches for our walk. We received neither. Day 2 they forgot we were there so breakfast was spartan to say the least. Takeaway lunch was the corporate function they had day before leftovers. And I mean leftovers. 4 soggy pieces of potato salad,lettuce leaf, slice of cucumber, slice of small orange presumably from leftover salad and a small dinner roll. THATS It. God knows what they charged our tour company. Even they were apologetic. My advise self cater here and eat elsewhere. On principle I would never eat here again for at least 10 yrs or management changes and the hire innovative people with food talent and service focus

Enjoyed our dinner at Gabriel’s whilst staying at Stewart’s Bay Lodge. The view over Stewart’s Bay is stunning and the food was very nice. Staff were friendly and helpful and didn’t have to wait long to be served. Prices pretty good overall. Would go back again.
