Delicious lunch!

Another great meal today. Superb, freshly prepared food using high quality seasonal ingredients. We had the 5 course taster lunch which was delicious. The service could not be faulted. Attentive and friendly. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys quality cuisine.

We booked the 5 course taster menu on a deal and it was excellent value. Although there was no choice for the taster menu, the waiter did check any allegeries and preferences with us and made a couple of minor alterations. All five courses were lovely, with a real emphasis on in-season ingredients. Best course however was the deconstructed cheesecake... More

The food, the atmosphere, the service! This has long been one of our most favourite restaurants in Glasgow and it just keeps getting better. We visit whenever we are in Glasgow and it's great to invite friends and show off Scottish cuisine.

We dined in a group of 7 on a Sunday night on the Bank Holiday. Food: Of a strong standard, everyone loves the novelty of an open kitchen. I found flavour pairing to be to my taste. Traditional yet adventurous style. We went for the a la carte but were tempted by tasting menu. You really do need a whole... More

A large party of us booked for a lazy afternoon. I had heard good reviews but still wasn't prepared for what was in store. Don't be fooled by the plain outside because once inside you are in for a treat. The staff are amazing. ( a special thank you to John for looking after our cocktail needs ) The food... More

Just visited with my wife for her birthday. This was the first time we have been and can easily say that it definitely will not be the last. We could only get an early table due to the lateness of when we booked and we were the second table of people in the restaurant. The service from the beginning was... More

As a chef with my own restaurant. I can only recommend this place and it's attention to detail in it's presentation of amazing food with a modern approach towards Scottish cuisine. My hat is off to the Chef (Christopher ) we need more like him in Scotland. Truely talented. Gastronomic experience .Right here in Glasgow

What a treat! We had a 6 course taster meal with a voucher deal so it was excellent value for money. I enjoyed every morsel of the meal from the " mouth entertainments " to the adventurous seaweed based pud! My kind of food. Good surroundings - we weren't rushed at all and the staff were pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable.
