Excellent fish restaurant, expensive but well worth it. The service is good and the quality of the food is excellent. Try grilled sardines and sole. Highly recommended.

We had the set lunch menu which had a good choice of dishes. We both agree that the crab, ginger and coriander soup is the best seafood soup we have ever tasted. My sea bream main was cooked perfectly, as was my wife's hake with mussels. Don't normally have sweets but I make an exception in restaurants like this and... More

We should come here more often because the food is always wonderful, and this visit was no different. We always start with the fish soup because it is so good. I had the sea bass , husband had the grey sole. The portions don't look big, but we struggle to finish them! Because there is so much protein?? Whatever the... More

Dined in Gamba on Good Friday with my mum, this was a belated Mother's Day treat for her and I've heard good things about Gamba. The food was absolutely lovely and is obviously why this restaurant does well. The young dark haired waitress (Louisa?) and tall waiter were both very friendly and attentive, they however deliver service to a much... More

This restaurant has the fashionable and contemporary look which is popular in Glasgow. The salmon was cooked well but the teriyaki sauce was all over it. It was a pleasant experience overall, just too much sticky teriyaki sauce.

We were so pleased that we had dinner at this nice restaurant twice while in Glasgow. Halibut, scallops.. all perfectly cooked. Nice staff and cosy atmosphere for a dinner with friends. Some nice wines as well. Clearly worth the price, don't hesitate to book!
