Do not miss it, a seafood gem nestled in a sophisticated lower level dinning room. High quality, well prepared seafood (only one vegetarian item and one beef item) menu. Excellent wine pairings and yummy dessert. Try it!!

On reflection a good meal but very over priced in my opinion. The restaurant itself is a bit dated and not particularly warm or romantic. We had an earlier reservation so got plenty attention from the staff. Had 3 courses in 75 minutes. I didn't like the pate starter or crackers served with it. It was the only starter on... More

Hi R3474MZmarkm I am disappointed to read your review of Gamba. I am glad you enjoyed your main course and dessert. The pate starter is very popular and the crackers are "taste award winning", our staff would have been more than happy to help you with alternatives if needed. We do not have a large selection of wine by the... More

We took advantage of the £30 prawn & sole Thermidor with a bottle of wine deal. Fantastic food, desserts were also delicious and good quality. High standard but friendly service in a good atmosphere.

After sampling Thermidor Tuesday in January,I was pleased to see it extended into February,and had another excellent Gamba experience- from our warmed fig bread to our coffee/tea& tablet, our lunch was superb,filling also, with a broccoli side to cut the ample Thermidor sauce- how our friends who sampled TT on our recommendation, that evening, managed a salad,and a shared cheese...

Wow! Where do I start. We were a party of 18 celebrating a special occasion and, by goodness, we were not let down one bit! The staff were amazing - professional, courteous and attentive.

Did not book in advance but managed to get a table within the hour. Service was excellent and food was served in good time no waiting. I can only describe the food as the best I have eaten and wished I lived nearer so I could become a regular
