Visited Gamba on my first visit to Scotland , recommended & accompanied by a friend who has eaten there many times. I was initially apprehensive that it was a totally fish restaurant. However as soon as we walked in, we were welcomed into the bar to enjoy a lovely unrushed G & T. The food exceeded all my expectations, besides... More

My wife & I took along my sister for dinner, and chose Gamba because my sister craves fish, as she lives in Vienna, which historically is poor for fish. We had fish soup to start and between us the monk-fish and the sea bream. Quality of the food was fantastic, as was the service.

My friend Ailsa and I regularly dine out in the best restaurants in Glasgow. I cannot recommend Gamba more highlY. We dined the recently and had the finest meal ever. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and the staff could not have been more welcoming and congenial. Fantastic value for money. You must try it! Martina

Took the up hill hike so it needed to be good, and Wow it was. Went for lunch on a Saturday £21 for 3 courses and a glass of wine. The staff were attentive without being over the top. The fish soup to start is probably the nicest tastiest soup I have ever eaten. Will be making a return on... More

We went back to have the fish soup after out last visit 6 months ago, and it was still as excellent. We also had the tuna sashimi like we did the last time and it was also excellent. For mains we had the lemon sole, the roasted sea bream and the steamed monkfish and king scallop and they were very... More

My wife and I visited this fantastic restaurant on 20th July and have to say it's as exquisite as ever before. Top class service and superb seafood. Beautiful wine selection with a special mention to excellent front of house staff. A lovely touch was the presentation of a signed book on the occasion of my Wife's Birthday. Can't recommend highly... More

We were in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games and this was the best restaurant we visited. The staff were excellent, friendly and very welcoming. The food was delicious, well worth the trek from the other side of he city. A wonderful experience
