Valued seafood restaurant in city centre
Opened in 1998, Gamba has confidently established itself as one of Glasgow’s leading seafood restaurants. With awards and glowing reviews to prove it, Gamba are highly regarded by customers and critics.
The restaurant commits to reducing its carbon footprint, resulting in it becoming Glasgow’s first member of the Sustainable Restaurant Association. Veterans on the Glasgow restaurant scene, the kitchen and management staff at Gamba have used their expertise to bring the restaurant to the top of the list for many seafood lovers.
The dining room is a bright, light space with a subtle Mediterranean theme, as well as an eye-catching mural which illustrates many of the species of fish and seafood featured on Gamba’s menu.
Asian inspired Mediterranean dishes
Although there is scotch beef with oyster mushrooms, pepper sauce and rooster sauce on the menu, Gamba is best known in Glasgow for its seafood. A good proportion of the dishes on the menu lean towards Asian flavours, as in Gamba’s signature fish soup with crabmeat, stem ginger, coriander and prawn dumplings. However, you are just as likely to find a more Mediterranean dish of Isle of Ghiga halibut, peat smoked haddock, garden peas, leek, scallop cream and chives.
Other dishes are simple classics such as the grilled lemon sole, whole roasted sea bass or hand dived king scallops. Which ever corner of the globe your meal is flavoured with, Gamba offers one of the most memorable seafood experiences in Glasgow.
Central location, close to bars and shops
Situated on the corner of West George Street and West Campbell Street, Gamba is ideally located between streets lined with bars and shops. A short walk from Glasgow Central and Queen Street rail stations, Gamba is also surrounded by bus stops making travel to and from the city centre easy.
