“Why did I leave it ten years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Just had the most amazing lunch in Gamba. The set lunch was gorgeous and the service charming. The crab and ginger soup was the nicest soup I had ever had and the sole thermidor was a delight. One quibble was the mark up on the drinks. £8 for a small glass of wine seemed steep. It's not the cheapest place but it really is lovely.

A beautiful restaurant . The food was amazing... Out of this world! The staff were excellent, friendly, courteous and professional. We were a group of four women looking to have a great day in Glasgow and it stared well here. We were even told by the staff of a really nice wine bar nearby . Well done the staff of Gamba

“A delight for any pescatarian.”

The Gamba fish soup was the best I have ever tasted. The prawn and pear cocktail had a lovely kick of heat from the chilli jam. Fishy mains were beautifully cooked and a generous size. Great service from friendly staff. Will definately be back.
