Super meal at Gambas. Quite a few of us out for the meal and a few social drinks, followed by some more anti social drinks. The food and service was excellent and I couldn't fault either.

Still a fab restaurant, staff soooo accommodating. We were late, asked to move tables, asked to eat from evening menu at lunchtime. Nothing too much trouble. Lovely place to celebrate or just have a fantastic meal.
