  • I went to Gibson for my Birthday twice. I took only a few of my friends we all had a burger, my one friend is a vegetarian so she had the vegetarian burgers and she it was really good. I had the Manhattan burger it was so good so it had everything to make the perfect burger it was not to dry and not too saucy. Don't get me started on how nice their milkshakes are, my one friend and I always share (she gets a flavour and I get a flavour) one because we don't know which one to choose. We always finish it. I can't wait to come back.

  • We only eat ribs at Gibson's. The lamb and beef ribs are just so amazing and taste delicious - fall off the bone. Very nice B-B-Que sauce. Half and half fries, crispy and crunchy and you can dip them in a secret #6 sauce that is on the table. They are always busy, you should try sitting outside facing the sea and mountain.

  • The burger with a brioche bun (roll) has to be the ultimate. The bun is so soft and reminds me of the Challa bread you get in the USA which is a bit yellow from the butter and egg. Love the beers on tap and the bar with TV’s playing sport.

  • I've been to Gibson's a couple of times now, and it has been amazing. If you're hungry when you enter, by the time you leave you will be very happily full. I've only had the burgers, and my favourite is definitely the The Mex-Tex. The portions are extremely generous, and the ingredients are of a high quality. If you still have room for dessert, the menu includes a range of milkshakes that would delight any sweet tooth - my personal favourite is the Chocolate Brownie. All in all, I would definitely recommend Gibson's if you're looking for a restaurant with tonnes of interesting and delicious burger options.

  • This burger place is good. It is in the Waterfront and has an amazing outside area too with panoramic views. The Zola Zola Gorgonzola Burger with bacon and gorgonzola cheese is so good. The smokey meaty flavor from the bacon enfaced with the cheese is nothing more than delicious. The steaks are also very good for a burger shop.

  • The chopped salad with added avo at Gibson's is so good. It is tossed in a Mediterranean splash. The extra avo gives it that extra taste! I felt like a plain good old cheese burger and a baked potatoe. The potatoe was so big and the burger was awesome.

  • WOW WOW WOW! These guys know how to make a mean burger! I had difficulty deciding which one to order because they have over 40 variations on their menu! Eventually settled on the camembert and cranberry one (called the Upmarket Doll) and it was delicious! There are also over 100 shakes to choose from... And they are AMAZING! Peanut Butter Brownie and Coffee & Doughnut ones were perfectly thick and moreish! I will definitely be back again!

  • I am passionate about Middle Eastern food. The problem is that there is NOT a lot around and the stuff around tastes not great. The Beirut Vegetarian Burger at Gibsons is decadent. The hommos and tahini taste like I ate in New York at a Lebanese restaurant in Soho. The combination was yummy. The veg patty had lentils in it and wow, it was THE BEST!

  • The fresh chicken with mango atchar and pineapple on like a prego roll (soft and fresh) is awesome. I loved the unusual taste of the atchar sauce! You have to eat it with your hands and mess. I also recommend the Bacon, Guacamol and Cheese Burger. The combination with the delicious sauce is awesome. We opted for the Brioche Bun and it was a great choice!

  • Had lunch here on Saturday 01 July. Fantastic shake menu. OMW! Too many choices, over 100! Tried the Apple Pie & Custard. Tasted like the real thing. We shared their Sliders (3 different mini burgers) and a portion of sticky ribs. They do orange sweet potato fries and thick hand cut fries too. Really great quality. Will be going there again, once the holidays are over...can't stand V&A in school holidays. Sit outside rather, as the inside can be a bit noisy

  • Gibson's Gourmet Burgers & Ribs is always my go-to restaurant for the best burgers in town. With a fabulous choice of 40 yummylicious burgers, you are spoilt for choice. My favourite is The Ultimate Roll’s Royce Burger - a delectable beef and chicken burger, topped with bacon and double cheese. Their melt-in-the-mouth beef, lamb and pork ribs are also to-die-for. And of course their phenomenal line-up of more than 100 Gourmet Shakes is unbeatable. And to top it all, the service is superb and the views are amazing.
