We booked this on a 5 pm deal and the food was great. We both thoroughly enjoyed the meal and unusually for the centre of Glasgow very reasonably priced wine. Staff were very helpful and great ambiance

Went for the 3 courses and bottle of wine for £25 which was excellent. There were two waitresses on who were more involved with talking to themselves than customers. Not once were we asked how our food was and the service was pretty slow between getting seated and getting drink and our starters. The food was great but the restaurant... More
