We recently celebrated our 7th anniversary at Gamba restaurant and it didn't disappoint. For starters we went for oysters and crab meat followed by monkfish and halibut. The food was to die for and came very quickly. Would highly, highly recommend and would love to go back.

We went to Gamba to my son's 21st birthday and could not have picked a better venue. The waiting staff, first of all, struck the perfect balance between friendly and professional, with helpful advice when struggling to pick just one item for each course! These were absolutely delicious; the fish soup was bursting full of wonderful flavours and the seabass... More

We've been going to Gamba for years so this review is long over due. Gamba is my favourite restaurant in Glasgow. The combination of excellent seafood, wonderful service and a lovely cosy atmosphere have us coming back time and time again. The fish soup and sashimi starters are a must try. Looking forward to my next visit already.
