Spanish Seafood restaurant Gambas announced for Wapping Wharf

Gambas will take prime spot in June once Spuntino closes

The team behind Cargo Cantina and Bravas will open another restaurant – Gambas – at Wapping Wharf this summer. Gambas will be a Spanish seafood tapas bar inspired by the Mercado central (central market), in Valencia, following the teams’ research trips to Spain.

The group is headed up by husband and wife team, Kieran and Imogen Waite, who will launch their latest venture this June in the Spuntino site (set to close in May).

As well as bagging one of the best spots at Wapping Wharf with some great views over the water, Gambas will also feature a seafood counter giving shoppers the chance to buy fresh produce to take home. The seafood will be delivered to Gambas from Cornwall’s fish markets.

Kieran Waite said: “This spot at CARGO 2 is the perfect location for Gambas as it’s right on the harbourside with a fantastic terrace offering views that you really can’t find anywhere else in Bristol. It is hugely important to us that our restaurants reflect their context, and we are so excited to offer diners a place to truly relax, soak up the sunshine and fabulous views and, of course, tuck into delicious food.

“We love being part of the Wapping Wharf community with all its different businesses, reflecting Bristol’s unique independent spirit, and it was a no brainer for us to open up Gambas there.”
