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.

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

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

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.
