Right from the offset, the Gamba team make you feel welcome with the genuine and accommodating service. The food was just as fantastic, everything was cooked to perfection and the generous portions left us sad to leave whatever we couldn't finish.

Went to this restaurant by chance. Very attentive staff, and nice ambience. Impressive selection of seafood, with information about their sourcing. It was a bit expensive - one course plus a glass of wine came to £40, but otherwise well worth it. Limited non-seafood options.More
