My daughter booked here for her post-graduation dinner. Exepected over-priced fuss with reasonable food but got truly excellent food served in a relaxed environment at very reasonable prices. A place to revisit now she has decided to stay in this lovely city.

Having previously criticised The Cail Bruich's wine accompaniment with the taster menu, I am delighted to say that this restaurant is back on top form. The Taster Menu was exquisite with a wonderful wine to compliment each course. The staff were attentive and friendly and we had a truly lovely evening, I would highly recommend this restaurant and cannot wait... More

Cail Bruich is quite simply the best restaurant in Glasgow. Easily deserves a michelin star in my opinion compared to the standard in so called 'one star' restaurants in bigger cities.

I love Cail Bruich. It's my favourite place to eat in Glasgow. Each meal I've had is a truly memorable experience, with an ever changing and great value seasonal market menu. If you want a real treat go for the tasting menu, you will not be disappointed. The staff are fantastic, you'll be well looked after here.

I cannot say enough great things about Cail Bruich. From the lovely atmosphere, to the attentive and friendly staff, to the most amazing Scottish cuisine I’ve ever tasted. We opted for the market menu, which is fantastic value, with food of the freshest, highest standard. The attention to detail is second to none, and the complimentary wee tasters were a... More

We were treated to the 7 course tasting menu with matched flight of wines by dear daughter and her partner. It was wonderful! The variety of tastes and the quality of the food was unrivalled. The wines were matched beautifully and it was all served by competent, confident young people who made us feel at ease but well cared for.... More

Good is you like fish. Limited thereafter. Special was overpriced for a pub steak. Nothing special apart from the amount of fat. Desserts were good though. Wouldn't rush back.

Chris C, Owner at Cail Bruich, responded to this review

Hello there, I'm disappointed to hear that we didn't live up to your expectations but I disagree that we're limited if you don't like fish. There's just as many meat options as there are fish, and we even have other choices too that cater for vegetarians. So to say that's a limited choice isn't really a fair statement at all.... More
