The food was delicious and a good variety of choice for any discerning diner. My lamb was cooked to perfection and my companion and I enjoyed the variety of complimentary... More

We have eaten at Cail Bruich so many times but I have to put in writing just how it keeps getting better and better. We have had meals in * and ** Michelin establishments that are way below the standards here. On this occasion we visited with two old friends from London who were equally impressed by the food and...

My wife and I eat at Cail Bruich last night and had the taster menu, when we actually counted the number of dishes offered including canapés and appetiser it amounted to a gut wrenching 12 dishes excluding coffee and wine, to say we are a bit jaded today is an understatement. Now to the positive bit, we've experienced the taster... More

Since we are from Germany we just came across this restaurant by looking through the window and being impressed by what was served at the tables. We went to dine the next day and were absolutely satisfied. The Tasting Menu was excellent as well as the matchung wines. Furthermore the service was very friendly, polite and discrete.

Thank you for a fantastic dining experience last night. The 6-course tasting menu was pretty incredible, each item was cooked to perfection and oozing with flavour ♥ One of Glasgow's finest. Can't wait to go back already!
