Visited recently with a friend for lunch. I had never been before so it was a very pleasant surprise after having found it. I say after having found it because it wasn't on my satnav but I'm glad I persevered and just put in Bellahouston Park and then it was signposted. I'm not prone to eating a large meal at... More

Who would have thought a council-managed free museum could harbour such a great restaurant?! Seriously, the cafe in the HFAAL is more of a restaurant and more than most restaurants. The food quality is splendid and the prices are reasonable (though not cheap). All the meals everyone had at the lunch setting were splendid. Each was novel, colourful, expertly presented... More

My family and I visited the House for an Art Lover cafe for a special birthday lunch. We had pre-booked our table and I certainly recommend that you do, as the cafe was very busy. The food (and drink) was delicious, just the right size portions and very reasonably priced! The staff were attentive and friendly. The grounds around the... More

My mum and I visited here for lunch, having heard a lot of good things about it from others. We were not disappointed! We hadn't booked (I would next time), but while it was very busy, we were able to get a table after a few minutes wait. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, clean, and has a nice ambiance. The...

After a morning touring this impressive estate we popped into the cafe for lunch. Very friendly staff, very nice menu and lovely surroundings. The meals were simple, fresh and tasty. Would definitely come back to visit.

We were looking for somewhere to have a wedding so we thought we would try the food first, the place itself has a very clean, friendly atmosphere, for lunch and we went for the chicken and the beef, the portion size is a little smaller, but in my view, is just about right, the food makes it all worth while,...

Staying in Pollokshields for the Commonwealth Games House for an Art Lover was not too far and conveniently on the way to Ibrox. I have seen some of the other Rennie M sights of the City but I was still impressed by this place and will return in future for a tour. The Shop is very good and as Trip... More

It's always a pleasure to eat at House For An Art Lover cafe. We generally have the set lunch, which is excellent value and choice. Although there is also an a La Carte menu. Set in lovely surroundings. Staff are very pleasant and nothing is too much trouble. Feels more like quality hotel service than cafe/restaurant! Would definitely recommend!
