Situated in Guildhall Square only 15 minutes from the train station and close to West Quay Shopping Centre and Guildhall. Turtle Bay is perfect for a big night-out, a quiet dinner for two, lunch with work-mates, somewhere to dump all those shopping bags or just somewhere to break the journey home.

Visited here with partner and friend. Excellent food and plenty of choice. Would recommend the Fish curry, very tasty. Very busy at lunchtime and teatime so turn up early or book to avoid being disappointed. Will be back soon or look for other Turtles in other areas. Hopefully my own town Glasgow.

Great food, great drinks and gorgeous waitresses! Went with friends and it was just fantastic from start to finish and they really looked after us - thanks to the man on the door who sorted us out a table as it was really busy! Will be back soon.

Visited Turtle Bay as a group of 4 friends. None of us had been previously and we were all impressed - with the food and the cocktails! It took a long time to get our mains but we weren't rushed out the door. We all said we would return and thought the prices were excellent.
