About Gamba

An institution on the Glasgow dining circuit, Gamba is known as the best seafood restaurant in town and has been the recipient of various accolades, including 2 AA rosettes and a favourable mention in Tatler magazine’s 2007 Restaurant Guide. Decorated throughout with a neutral Mediterranean theme, Gamba is popular for date nights and pre/post theatre meals, and the menu specialises in fresh seafood with a British twist. Expect dishes such as the Gamba fish soup with crabmeat, stem ginger and prawn dumplings; the stuffed sea bass with roast peppers, mussels, basil and balsamic; and the delectable lemon and rosemary tart with fresh raspberries and marscarpone sorbet. The wine list embraces both new and old world vintages.
