We went to Gamba to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. I was pleasantly surprised, the food was excellent and so was the service. We would certainly come back!

My fiancé and I ate in Gamba last night. We were to shown to the small but atmospheric bar as our table wasn't ready yet, which was fine by us! The bartender was very friendly. The seafood was amazing. My sashimi of yellow fin tuna starter was so tasty, as was my halibut main (special of the night). My partner... More

The quality of the ingredients are excellent, the way they are cooked is good without being spectacular. The fish soup was good and the halibut main course very good. The quality of the halibut was top class but it was slightly over cooked and the plate so hot the sauce had started to split. At the moment the restaurant is... More

Me and my partner went to Gamba this week for the three course deal. The offer was brilliant value for money. The food we ordered was so fresh and tasty. The food combined with the professional service made this a great experience. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend to all :)

Excellent sea food restaurant. Not cheap but very good quality. About £25 to £30 for a reasonable bottle of wine. Lovely menu. Excellent service. Very much a special occasion restaurant but will definitely return.

Our first seafood restaurant experience and it was outstanding!! The ambience and atmosphere was excellent. Staff thorough, thoughtful and professional. Complimentary drink as it was my partners birthday. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was beyond doubt the best we'd had of any type.
