Popped into this venue last week for a quick lunch. I must say I was surprised. The food is simply divine. I had scallops, black pudding with salad etc. It was really really good. Pudding were fabulous also. It really is such a great place to sit & chill. Will definitely return & would certainly recommend.

House For An Art Lover is set in some lovely manicured gardens in Bellahouston Park. I can’t comment on the art, architecture and design thats on show here as I’m not a fan, what I am a fan of is food and the House For An Art Lover cafe is a great place for some lunch. I don’t particularly like... More

Proper, decent food at a tourist attraction. Rare, getting less rare! I'd go there just for the food!

Limited hours, and the place fills up quickly, but really excellent food. A nice break from the touristy places.

We came across this fabulous cafe almost by accident and are so glad we did. There was a wedding on which stopped us from exploring but actually added to the delights of the day as we were treated to their piper and the sight of their receiving line, kilts and all! Any how, back to the food. We had the... More

On my recent and first visit to the Bellahouston Park, popped into the Art Lover's Cafe for coffee and scones with my friend. Excellent service, very polite and friendly staff. The interior of the cafe is beautiful with a pleasant atmosphere. Plenty of parking at the site, and afterwards you can have a walk around the park to walk off... More

We visit Bellahouston Park often - mainly for an excuse to visit the Art Lover's Café! Café is a misnomer: the menu is of city centre restaurant standard. The food is consistently very good and the service friendly. The restaurant is often busy so reservation is advised. An added beauty is free parking and a walk afterwards in the walled... More
