Visited here for my boyfriends birthday, a group of 6 of us. Lovely meal, seen it advertised on 5pm and decided to give it a go as the menu looked lovely and great value for money. It was! We weren't disappointed, thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would definitely return.

Had our dinner at Cafe Source before going to a Celtic Connections gig at St Andrews in the Square upstairs. The food was amazing, and I would recommend the pre-theatre deal as being the best value for money anywhere.

The food was good Scottish food, well served with details of the origin of the various offerings. The staff were excellent, as is so often the case in Glasgow, efficient, smiling and good humoured.

Three of us went for dinner tonight on the pre theatre menu. The food and service was pretty good but two of us felt that the food was a bit overly salty although neglected to comment at the time. My burger was great. Won't stop us form going back.

I had the responsibility of helping organise out Christmas night out for 170 people-no easy task but must say that St Andrews in the Square could not have been better. I used to work in a 5 Star Hotel and have high expectations which were met and exceeded by the staff at cafe source. Paul and Jackie were helpful and... More

I was here yesterday on my works Christmas lunch. Our table was booked for 2pm and we were told on advance that we would have to be out by 4pm. We were requested to submit our choices in advance-so 5 mins after being shown to our seat, our starters were on the table. We had not been approached by anyone... More
