Set amid the splendors of Bellahouston public park close to the dry ski slope and walled garden, this wonderful museum has excellent meeting rooms and a wonderful restaurant. The food is very good and the service when I was there was as good as you would expect from a quality eatery. I think House for an Art Lover is worth... More

Whilst not at all what I was expecting (total ignorance and lack of research on my part I'm afraid), I would have to say this is one of the best 'attractions' I have visited in quite some time. Well worth a visit. Even if you don't do your research in advance, the included audio guide is very informative and helpful.... More

My daughter wanted to treat me to an early Mother's Day so we went to the Cafe at 12:00. We had already checked the menu online so were most surprised to see that it bore no resemblance to what was actually on offer both from the 2 / 3 course options and Cafe Lights Menus. My Gruyere and Leek Tart... More

We love this place as one of our children was married there some time ago and they were brilliant. We were able to go for lunch recently and the standard hasn't dropped. The food, service, atmosphere was first class and we enjoyed a lovely lunch, beautifully prepared and served by people who obviously know their craft. Hope it's not too... More
