My favourite is the glasgow tapas! and the rump of lamb dish is delicious! the staff are very friendly. Every time I have dined here it... More

We were really fortunate, following a couple of recommendations, we managed to get ourselves one of the last tables available last night, a table close to the bar for a 5:30 early evening dinner (it was Glasgow fair Friday after all - Friday 18th July) We arrived just before 5pm and were met by well attentive staff, had a pre...

Visited with colleagues yesterday for late lunch (late afternoon) having spotted it on the merchant city site and looking for something new. Wasn't disappointed with a cracking lunch menu and at a very reasonable price. Reminder that good food doesn't have to come with an exorbitant price tag. Had 3 course set menu - but flexible enough to let us... More

Lovely ambience and great staff. Enjoyed a fabulous meal which was beautifully presented. It does get extremely busy so best to reserve a table in advance. An early bird menu is offered too. As it's only a short walk from the city centre it's a great location too! Recommended!

We recently dined at Guys Restaurant as a special occasion for my graduation. The restaurant is small and intimate, making for a very nice and cosy atmosphere. We came here for early dinner but I imagine this could be a great place for a couple's late night dinner also. The service was great. We could see that staff were very... More

This is the 2nd time I have been to Guy's and the the food and ambience is just lovely. Superb value.The food is just amazing. Better to pre-book as it's a busy wee place.

Had 3 course pre-theatre menu. Food was delicious though portion-size was a wee bit mean. Attended to by 4 different waiting staff during meal and a drink order got lost along the way and had to chase this up..not good as restaurant was far from busy. Have been here loads of times and will no doubt be back again

My friend took me to Guy's as she'd been a few times before and really liked it. It's very atmospheric inside and intimate. I loved the art and all of the ornaments! We dined from the Pre-Theatre Menu which was great value! I had the spaghetti with porcini sauce which was delicious and then the ice cream with fruit, both... More
