Scottish farmers are known the world over for their dedication to The Cause and their consistently high-standards. That’s why you’ll find that almost everything on our menu was either reared here, harvested here or was landed right here on the shores of Scotland.Our approach to cooking is typically no-nonsense too; we source the finest ingredients like 28-day hung Scotch beef and seafoods from local waters, add a little flair and influence from the Auld Alliance and simply let the food do the talking. We think you’ll love the Bo’Vine difference!

Dinner here with wife and daughter. Can't say it is a cosy setting, as the lighting is a bit cold, but this was offset by the exemplary service; terrific people doing a very good job in a warm, friendly and efficient way. We each had 3 courses, plus cocktails and wine. The drinks were first class, and the food, across... More

Best hotelrestaurant ever! The carpaccio and beef was so good..and the service just perfect. We booked a rate including dinner at the Doubletree by Hilton and it was so well worth it.

Love the concept from the black pudding salad and cheese bon-bon to the sirloin and chips in mini-fryers. Onion rings are heavenly and mini-decanters for 250ml wine measures look great. Peppercorn sauce needs a little more kick and draft beer choice needs improvement. While service requires minor tweaks, this venue offers great value for money with its set menu in... More

The atmosphere in the restaurant is relaxed and the place itself is comfortable, with a good bit of space between tables, creating just a buzz of conversation. We were welcomed and shown to a table immediately, iced water brought and drinks order taken within 2 minutes. The service was impeccable but discreet, and it only took a glance to get... More

Ailsa is a top notch young server who provided us with the best service we had while visiting Scotland. Our steaks were good, my only suggestion would be to load the French onion soup with cheese.

While I like to go out and try new places, this is the place I tend to revisit in Glasgow. It has an ambiance that suits a special dinner and the food is lovely. The pre-theatre deal is great value. I recommend this place to all my friends.
