Gamba never fails to disappoint. We had 3 amazing courses of fresh and beautifully prepared food with great, attentive but un-fussy service. Cannot recommend enough.

We had a great meal in a good atmosphere at Gamba, the menu was lovely and it hard choosing between the various options that tempted me. The food lived up to how good it sounded and all four of us claimed we had made the best choice. Everything was very nice from the cocktails to the fudge with coffee and... More

Two of us went for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the convivial atmosphere. It was a great place with good service and food. The Halibut with smaoked haddock was well cooked though the cream sauce was a bit retro. Lovely scallops, sweet and tender in curry oil. Would come again.

Hi londrepyramid, Thanks for choosing to dine with us at Gamba and for the positive reviews of our food and service on your recent lunch visit. Our Halibut is farmed from the Isle of Gigha and this particular dish is served with a cream sauce made with the coral from our hand-dived King scallops. We would have happily advised on... More

The food in is restaurant is delicious with a selection of fish, seafood and some non-aquatic options on the a la carte. However I felt it was let down by the service. I had high expectations which is possibly a reason I've not given it 5 stars. It has 2 rosettes so I was expecting great things but was served... More
