This is one of the best restaurants in Glasgow. I've eaten from several menus in here and the food is always beautiful. There's an excellent wine selection and staff always make a great recommendation. Will return soon.

It's been too long since I last ate here! The 5pm menu was excellent - better than many places in which we eat in France. Great presentation, exciting combinations of tastes, colours, textures.

This place serves some of the best grub in glasgow... plenty of fish and veggies when i went but opted for the duck instead which was quality. Service couldn't be faulted, seems like a place people enjoy working which is a good sign. Great place to go for a special occasion, and, as i wanted to try so much on... More

Been there several times. Excellent choice of food and wines. Intimate and very cosy. Although busy the staff never rush the diners.

A quiet Monday evening in this small, intimate restaurant began with a friendly welcome as we came in out of the rain. Fabulous food (we had mains and desserts) and a good wine selection. I chose the pork belly dish, which was so full of flavour with matching sides. The rest of the family tried the two fish dishes, which... More

Visited on Sunday night for a fantastic meal. The Ox tongue and pork belly were the clear winners from their set menu. Amazing value as well for such fine dining, the bill for 2 people only came to £70 for 2 three course meals and a bottle of wine. Staff were attentive and very polite, I will definitely be back...

I was told it was great and because my expectations were too high I found ir ok, but only because as I said expectations too high. Good food, good environment, good quality and good service so can't ask for more.

Ate here on 1st April for an anniversary dinner. Initial impression was the place is small, really small. Nevertheless, our table was ready on arrival, the waitress was great, happy, bubbly, helpful, attentive, and polite. This excellent service continued throughout even though the place was busy. Starters were ordered and arrived in good time. Ox tongue for me, and asparagus... More

I had been given a voucher for this restaurant and to be honest having looked at the website was not particularly looking forward to it however it surprised us all. One minor criticism would be that the choices were limited however the quality of the food was excellent. Our host was probably the most competent I have ever come across,... More
