I attended the same function as Cc (31 August 2014) and I also would rather have gone to the local cafe where I would have had a better meal. After a very ordinary Thai Salad sprinkled with a few peanuts, my main course was a joke. A plate of green beans (same as the meat eaters' mains) and assorted beans... More

Gambaros last night for a $180 a head awards dinner - lets just say I would rather get fish and chips down at Wynnum than wait hours for a luke warm bit of fish and a cheese platter. The staff were disinterested and disengaged. No dessert ? Who makes charities pay $180 a head and there's no dessert. I am... More

We went here, and I have to say since the renovations and menu update this place is amazing. I am a bit of a tuna nazi and this is by far the best tuna I have had in any restaurant. It just melted in my mouth! Oysters were lovely and fresh too. Waiters were an absolute delight and very attentive.... More

The Gambaro has the best breakfast ever - pancakes sprinkled with candied walnuts and fresh strawberries were totally awesome. Other dishes on the menu were also of a very high standard. Try this place, you won't be disappointed.

The seafood was so fresh and perfectly cooked and presented. We enjoyed lovely wines to compliment each course. Fabulous desserts also. Very hard to choose from the extensive menu, but loved every meal we... More

I have been coming to Gambaro's all my life. As it was my birthday, I decided to celebrate it at Gambaro's as I have many times in the past. We arrived just before 7.30pm to find the car park full. But there was space if we wanted $35 per vehicle valet parking. No thank you. We were directed to The... More
