About Bar Gumbo
Well worth a visit
The bar/restaurant was quiet when we went arrived but this was a Wednesday early evening. Staff were very attentive, courteous and pleasant. My wife had the roast beetroot salad and I had the avocado frites for starters which were delicious. We then had their signature Gumbo dish and Jambayala as mains which we both agreed were excellent and by far the tastiest meal we have had in a long time. The bar also have drink / cocktail promotions which are great value and was an added bonus. All in all we had a great dining experience and will definitely be back in a heart beat and would highly recommend to family and friends.
Great restaurant, is well wirth a visit
Fabulous food, lots to choose from. Will definitely recommend it to my son as I am sure he will love it too.
My friend and I were pleasantly surprised how good the food was, well worth a visit.
