We were given a gift voucher for the tasting menu and booked for Saturday night. Firstly the food was just "ok" and none of the 6 courses had any wow factor and two days later I am struggling to remember exactly what we had. It appeared that the menu was based on the foraging restaurants you see on the later... More

Being a serious foodie, I was qute pleased to find this popular fine dining restaurant in Glasgow, which has been my home for the last year. Service was completely impeccable and well tipped by me - the food was excellent hard (though possible) to fault. A little too rich and not enough fresh vegetables - chucking in a few raw... More

Myself, my missus and one of our employees (a chef) had the taster menu on 20th of May and all of us agreed it was the finest meal we had ever had. By a considerable margin. None of us are really into wine but I chose the £35 pairing option and I am really glad that I did, the wines... More

We regularly change the tasting menu so you might find six whole new dishes to try the next time you visit. In the meantime I have to say thank you for your review and... More

Wonderful True Scottish fayre . With a modern twist. Worth every penny. Just up from the cross road of Byers Road . On Great Western Road. Accorsi from the Botanic gardens and all that the west end of Glasgow has to offer.
