The setting in the basement of The Buttery was unusual, with stained glass and decorations from a church. Wait staff was attentive and helpful. Appetizers good; my husband & I both had the cod fillet wrapped in parma ham, which was slightly overcooked so that the ham was dry and tough and the fish wasn't very moist. The wine list... More

Our group of 7 adults loved the exquisite cuisine. The place is small and looks quite simple. Great ambience inside, but the location outside is underwhelming.

I recently had my Graduation meal at The Shandon Belles after previously enjoying a wonderful meal here in March. We all had a great night. As with all the Two Fat Ladies restaurants, the food was excellent and the menu had a great selection. The staff were also very accommodating for the two vegeterians in our group, bringing the vegetarian... More

Having recently eaten at "The Fat Ladies" (see previous review) we decided to try out the Shandon Belles (which is based directly below it) during our visit to Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games. We were not disappointed. The whole ambience is much more relaxed (down to paper tablecloths) and the menu somewhat more restricted but the food quality was to... More

We visited this restaurant a year ago and came back for more when we were up in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games. This is one of our favourite restaurants - the menu is good, the food excellent, the service friendly and attentive and the price amazing. We took a train to Anderston and it's a stones throw from there and... More

The food is outstanding every time and whoever is working has the same ability to make you feel welcome, provide great service, but not become annoying The £21 deal for 2 courses and a half bottle of wine is exceptional value for what you get Can't recommend...

Enjoyed a lovely relaxed meal here with my friend. 3 courses and a half bottle of wine for £24 was a real bargain. Menu contained lots of choice, and we were also offered tasty dish of the day options. Tablet cheesecake was to die for! Service was also great. I cannot recommend this cute little place enough. Loved the surroundings... More

Recently had a fabulous meal here with the family. 3 courses of excellent food, the sea bream was delicious and a great bottle of white wine. All agreed it was one of the best meals they'd had in a restaurant! Very odd location but more accessible than first appears, great atmosphere and really good service. No fluke that this is... More

This was my third visit this year to Shandon Belles and I think the best. The restaurant is well appointed and crockery and cutlery sparkles. The staff as always were friendly and professional. But it's the food that stars. I was with a party of four and we each had a different main. All were more than satisfied. My water... More

although my meal was fine, as opposed to good, my sister and daughter actively disliked their food. My daughter started with soup, which was bland, although the texture was fine. My daughter then had Cajun Salmon which she felt was over flavoured, in an overpowering way, the three who tried it all agreed. My sister had vegetable chilli, which was... More
