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

Booked for our anniversary, On making booking I asked if there was parking as I know how hard it is to get a park near Gambaro Restaurant. I was told there was plenty of parking at restaurant. On arrival I was told by security guard that the park was full and I should park on the street. I had previously... More

I dined here with some friends and while I have been in and around Brisbane for many years it is amazing to me why I have not been here before. Everyone loves a seafood meal right? Well I do not eat shellfish and this is probably why I have taken my time. I need not have worried as there is... More

Went for dinner 3 nights ago & enjoyed everything, but especially the seafood, which is why we picked this restaurant in first place. Food just the best, setting elegant & service was spot on. Scallops with pangrattato were divine. Partner chose wine so I can't comment on choices available.

My wife and I visited for our date night, the food was delicious and the service was prompt. I had the fish of the day and my wife had the lobster mornay. Both dishes were delicious.

I would like to start by thanking Gambaro for such a wonderful evening. The food, service and atmosphere were amazing. The seafood platter was fresh and my guests were amazed at the quality. Will be back for the my next dinner meeting

We went to Gambaro's for Valentines Day dinner and what a dissapointment it was. I eat out a lot, and i'm "not" in the business of bagging restaurants, but for a place that we have been dining at for over 30 years i find it such a shame that the evening was ruined by poor management, service and food. I... More

Dear Flatchange, The Gambaro Seafood Restaurant has definitely learnt from Valentine’s Day 2015. The length of time you waited for food and drinks is unacceptable and for that we apologise. Please be assured measures are in place to ensure it doesn’t happen again. You are quite correct in noting we regularly host large functions which do not encounter these wait... More
