Make a Booking

Thank you for choosing to dine with us at Gambas, we look forward to serving you.

We have put measures in place to make your experience as safe and enjoyable as possible. You can view our COVID policy here. To adhere to government regulations of 1 meter plus, we are operating at around 40% of our usual capacity. To make opening sustainable for the time being we are allocating table reservations for 90 minutes.

Please choose from the times that we can offer to you below. We have a mix of high tables and low tables which will be allocated to you. If you have a preference please specify which, we will do our best to meet your request but cannot guarantee this.

At Gambas we cook paella on demand, which can take around 45 mins. If you'd like to pre-order paella for your booking, please leave us a comment on your reservation request saying how many portions you'd like and we will have it ready for you.

Please note the terrace is currently not bookable.

We respectfully request, that if you or any member of your party develops a new dry continuous cough, high temperature or loss of sense of smell or taste that you cancel your reservation and follow government guidelines.

Thank you for your support and patience, we looking forward to seeing you soon!



Spanish Tapas Bar

Gambas is the sister restaurant to Bristol institution Bravas.

Our menu is made up of signature and popular dishes that we have enjoyed on our trips to Spain. We also have a daily changing specials menu made up of seasonal plates, market fresh fish & shellfish.

If you just want a drink, we have a great aperitivos and gin & tonics list to be enjoyed.

We look forward to serving you.


Perfect for Sharing

For parties of 6 or more we offer a selected tapas menu to share between the table. It gives you the chance to taste lots of different dishes and enjoy the sociable style that eating tapas is perfect for, and for us means from our kitchen we can still provide the high quality of food and speed of service we would for a smaller table.
