A splendid experience!!! We were recommended the Gambaro Seafood restaurant, and I have to say we were certainly impressed. From the moment we walked in, the attention to detail was evident. The enclosed but well displayed centre piece with large glass walls to the wine cellar create an atmosphere of understated elegance. The ambience was matched with a sophisticated cuisine... More

I write this review unfortunately pointing out the facts and genuine short comings of this established Brisbane restaurant. I have eaten here many occasions over the last 10-15 years and after seeing their great new hotel and accom facilities built in this precinct, I was very keen to see if the investment had been underpinned by their improved core restaurant...

The Michaels Special Barramundi was the best piece of Barra I have had. Just so melt in the mouth. My hubby enjoyed his hot Seafood platter. We shared a Fancier desert which they had piped Happy Anniversary on the plate. I can recommend this desert.

My Son arrived from Japan and took my Daughter and Son-in-Law, my wife and I out to Gambaros for dinner. The warm welcome, the service and the friendly staff made this a very special night. The many choices of entrees, mains and sweets made it hard to select but the quality of the food served was superb. My Son is... More

Great seafood ,,,just before the State of Origin decider 8/7/ 2015 Score Qld 52-6 NSW. Toilets are way too small for the amount of people. These owners must make SOOOO much money, they could add on more toilets ! It may have been a seafood buffet but my wife ended up hungry as she does not eat seafood....dissapointing.

The menu is extensive and interesting showcasing, of course, fresh Queensland seafood. The meals were exquisite and the service first rate. The wine list is also extensive, to say... More
