Have been to Gamba many times both for lunch and dinner and have always had a great dining experience. On this occasion we booked for the pre theatre menu before going to the Ballet at the Theatre Royal. Table was booked for 17.30 so it was relatively quiet with only a couple of other tables occupied. The pre theatre menu... More

It's been on my list for ages and I finally made it to Gamba last night....And I was not disappointed! In fact the experience exceeded my expectations. The prawn cocktail with chilli was the best prawn cocktail I've ever tasted (and I've tasted a few!) and my Isle of Ghia halibut was to die for. My husband had the fish... More

Booked a table as a festive treat before going to a concert. I have to say that I was extremely impressed by the service and the quality of food. I had the three course pre-theatre menu for a fixed pice which included a glass of wine. Great value option that does not compromise on quality. All three courses were simply... More

Having visited Gamba last Christmas while staying in Glasgow, we thought that a return trip was in order! We were right. Again, our meal was first class, with helpful, professional service and excellent food. In particular, my Salmon Tartare starter was quite the best starter I have tasted anywhere in the World! Gamba is really not to be missed when... More

Been coming for last 5 years before a trip to the Panto and have always had wonderful lunch. This year was even more amazing. My friend said it was the best prawn cocktail she has EVER had. So many flavours in main courses and the dessert was amazing. Can't recommend this place enough.
