Everything at Gambaros is done well, and they've been doing it for a very long time. It is one of the very few long term Brisbane restaurant institutions left after Baguette sadly closed this year and Restaurant Two to close as well at Christmas. So, they are doing something consistently well - it is the service. They were professional and... More

We had a 75th birthday. Cameron our waiter was outstanding, attentive, great knowledge, helpful and patient. Each in the group of 6 had something different. The birthday girl had special requirements, these were perfectly complied with that made a most enjoyable evening. All of us also enjoyed and appreciated the quality of the food and service. Wine list was good.... More

We went to Gambaro to celebrate my sister's 35th birthday. From the moment we walked in, the staff were amazing. So friendly, welcoming, polite - I couldn't find a fault with them. We were seated quickly, in a beautiful, elegant dining room, and all our needs were attended to fast. The food itself was spectacular - this is how seafood... More

Seafood was of excellent quality and the portions generous. Wine list had sufficient options at various price points. Overall price not cheap but comparable to other good quality restaurants around Bne. Service by Cam was first class - knowledgeable and good comms, observant of needs, prompt, ahead of the curve, but completed his role without intruding on our experience.

I've been coming to Gambaro's for many years, it is always a treat. The food,service and staff are second to none and I always recommend it to others. Put it on your 'Must Do' list. My favourite restaurant in Brisbane, you will not be disappointed.

After 35 years of marriage I was wondering where I could take my loving wife. Somewhere befitting the occasion. The choice was easy really. I had been to Gambaro quite a few times over the years. I've always left there in appreciation of the food and the service. My wife selected the crayfish Thermidor and I chose the seafood box.... More
