From the moment we stepped into Gamba we knew we were going to have a good time, the atmosphere was warm and welcoming,the staff super friendly and the smells were delicious. We had cocktails at the bar which although not on the list, it was no problem to order them. When our table was ready our drinks were taken for us. Canapés were brought to the table whilst we looked at the menu - delicious. We each enjoyed a starter, main and couldn’t resist dessert. The food was simply the best we’ve ever had, utterly devine, I didn’t want to finish. Louisa and her staff were very attentive, big compliments to Derek the chef. We will be back, hopefully very soon!

Early Saturday evening dinner for 2.

Gamba is a very soothing and pleasant place to visit. Staff are friendly and attentive.

We went a la carte with the fish soup, Mayberry smoked salmon starters. I could still, two weeks on, be happily eating the fish soup. Delicious as was the salmon starter.

I had the monkfish and scallops and my partner the whole roast sea bream. Both were delicious.

We shared a cheeseboard for afters.

All in, a very pleasant meal.

Very efficient and friendly service.

Came through from Edinburgh for the second time,was as lovely as the first.
Service,wine was really nice,am not a huge white wine fan but even the cheaper one that was highlighted was good.
Food was great,only reason that it didn't get 5 stars I thought my crab starter was a bit tasteless.

Hi andyhEdinburgh!

Thank you for taking the time to share your dining experience at Gamba. I'm glad you enjoyed our service, food and wine! Our recommended wine of the month Pinot Grigio from Romania is highly popular!
I'm sorry to hear that Portland crab meat starter wasn't to your taste. This dish is built up with delicate flavours.
Hope you can join us again soon.

Best regards,

Luiza Devarajan

I went to the restaurant twice basically because me and my wife loved the restaurant a lot. We were attended by Thomas a very Kind and polite waiter. The Main, wine, side and desert was perfect. So… I recommend clearly this restaurant for anyone who loves sea food. So Just Try it!

I really liked the seafood. The price is expensive but the quality is very good. Just the wine was a bit subpar
