The staff in this restaurant are wonderful. The maitre d even waited outside for me when I had difficulty finding it. The food was excellent, I could not fault it and the lemon sole that I had was huge. The main meal also did not come with chips which is the normal thing north of the border. I most definitely...

Oh why have we waited 20 years to visit this wonderful restaurant. We booked for my wife's birthday and we could not have had a more enjoyable night. We were greeted at the door and asked if we would like a pre diner drink, we chose a Presecco while we looked through the menu. We were then shown to our... More

All the staff are friendly and wonderful, the decor is warm, inviting, and comfortable, the service is impeccable, and the food is out of... More

Restaurants like these are what TA is all about. Without TA reviews there's no way i would have gone here. TA'ers have got this one correct. From the outside this restaurant looks a bit dull, a bit dour, a bit old. But when you walk in, you instantly realize that is deliberate. There's absolutely no need to be brash and... More

I've visited one of the other Two Fat Ladies in Glasgow and it was excellent, so was anticipating the same at the Buttery. I loved the interior and exterior of this building, however it is in a slightly unusual location between a flyover and a housing estate. The staff were all very pleasant and extremely well turned out. I had... More

It must have been 25 years since we last visited the old Buttery, and so a return visit was well overdue. The quality of the food was excellent, particularly the Scottish fish. However, looking around the restaurant everything looked good with everyone seeming to enjoy themselves. The whole experience was quite particular with the old tableware and the Scottish theme,...
