We had a lovely meal here recently. The place is quite small but you do not feel you are too close to other diners . We found the staff very friendly and overall had a very good experience . We enjoyed every course but I have to mention the sweet course as the cranachan ( Scottish raspberries and oats and... More

Were in here in November before going to see Kylie at the nearby Hydro. Was perfect for having a relaxing dinner. Had requested to be sat in booth style seating if possible and this request was met - table was near kitchen but didn't find this an issue - was cosy! Was fairly quiet but had a nice atmosphere -...

Went on a Sunday between Christmas and New Year. Late lunch- 2.30 - 3courses for under £20 a head. Good choices. Generous portions. Tasty food. Only negative was that they seated us by the bar and kitchen area which was chilly but over hot if fan heater on. Place was quiet so could have been seated elsewhere more comfortably. In... More

Wed 10 Dec 2014 - lunch - party of 3 My elderly Glaswegian uncle recommended this place, when we were visiting him from "The South", saying he didn't like upstairs cos is was full of businessmen, instead preferring the basement eatery, so I was dreading/imagining it to be a "working men's club" or similar... especially with it being downstairs...

Let's get down to it ! In December the restauranteurs of Glasgow like to fill their boots and squeeze your wallet hard. At Shandon Belles nothing could be further from reality. With the same kitchen as the Buttery upstairs and a 'similar' menu , this has to be the best value Festive Menu in town. £16 for 2 courses or... More

Eight "girls" go out every year for our wee Christmas lunch - this has to have been one of the best. Fantastic value at £19 with great choices for all three courses - and not just your bog standard Christmas menu. House wine exceptionally good value at £12 a bottle (and was very drinkable!) Great atmosphere loved the quirky china... More

Came here prior to seeing Jools Holland concert. Arrived early but not a problem for us to have a drink upstairs before restaurant actually opened! Staff upstairs and downstairs very friendly and helpful. We were able to transfer our drinks account to our table downstairs. Food top quality with ample portions! One downside was position of our table. Just at... More
