In a stylish basement on a corner site in the city centre's grid of streets, Gamba is an accomplished seafood restaurant that offers good ingredients given an international spin in the kitchen. This creates main courses like seared scallops with cumin fragrant rice and orange teriyaki dipping sauce, perhaps a classic sole meunière, or something like roast cod with creamed cabbage, pancetta, peas, mussels and thyme. The signature dish is the legendary fish soup with crab, ginger and coriander – try it as a starter – while service is impeccable and the atmosphere hits just the right note between formal and comfortable. Since its launch in 1998 Gamba has been among a select list of Glasgow eateries that are both eminent and much loved which is testament to chef-proprietor Derek Marshall's judgement and expertise. The lunch and market menus will limit your spend on any visit – check website for availability.
