Had a great evening here last week at the Sea of whisky evening. Delicious food, as always in Gamba, each course paired amazingly with whisky. Danielle Murphy was interesting and engaging. Service was good and a very reasonable price for the experience. 10/10!

Saturday evening after a trip to the GFT, our visit to Gamba Seafood Restaurant was a wonderful experience. The food is of the finest quality and service is impeccable. We were early but still welcomed with open arms and spent a lovely half an hour at the bar. Oysters and smoked salmon starters, Turbot and Halibut mains were all delicious.... More

We visited Gamba again last Friday evening for a meal which was excellent. This time we had an early booking (5.30p.m.) and chose from the pre-theatre menu. The fish soup is out of this world!! That said everything that we had was wonderful and well worth trying to get a booking. Will return.

Have not been here for a while and was given a voucher for my birthday to go back. We were not disappointed. Now before I go much further I am not a fish fan but my wife is. So the title of this review is all the more surprising. We ate off the market menu on a Saturday evening. (It... More

We've just visited my mum's favourite restaurant and while the food was exceptional as usual, the service was lacking. We asked for a small portion of the soup to start with as my mum has a fairly small appetite and did not want to spoil her main course. We were told they do not do that. Later on we asked... More
