Great food, but...

We almost didn't come because of the negative reviews but obviously decided to anyway. For the most part the food was great. Our table cooked prawns were over done however the flavour was great. The garlic bread came in a foil wrap, which reminded me of a cheap fast food restaurant and... read more

I visited Gambaro's Restaurant for the first time today! I had a work anniversary lunch so we walked up from Roma Street. It was delicious! One of the best eye fillet steaks I have had...perfect medium cooked steak with a very tasty red wine jus to follow. The service was great and very professional as well as just all round... More

This restaurant is expensive and decadent but so worth it! The chef involved my children when cooking the flambéed crepes and prawns at the table-side, it was fantastic! The food was rich and indulgent, but a taste sensation, and worth every cent. The service was flawless, the night was awesome, we'll return on special occasions, as this was a treat... More

Gambaros seafood restaurant has the charm of offering you a mixture of great seafood dishes accompanied by a amazing wine list in a relaxing atmosphere served by the smiling john ( the Chef DE flambe ). Although there are many restaurants in Brisbane it is difficult to find one that offers all the above qualities and just begs for your... More

Off we went to Gambaro’s; right away parking was a problem. No space underneath the restaurant but, valet parking was available at $20 payable at... More

We arrived on time for our table and were... More

Electing to have an early dinner before the Rugby at Suncorp Stadium, we booked Gambaros Seafood Restaurant. The international staff are efficient and very good communicators. We enjoyed our interaction with them. The restaurant runs very efficiently and there is a lot of attention to detail, especially the table setting. The menu and wine list is complete. We chose Pacific... More
