LA Gaffe

Restaurant

Since 1962, La Gaffe has been opening its doors to locals and overseas visitors alike. We opened originally as a French restaurant but, over the years, we have experimented with being a Seafood restaurant before finally reverting to our roots and becoming an Italian restaurant.
