Visited Café Source for dinner on the 19th October. Food was delicious and service was great! Got our food nice and quickly too! Café Source is just enough outside city centre to be a bit more quiet which was perfect for a Sunday dinner. Only a short walk to Merchant City too should you wish to venture out for drinks... More

Bit away from centre but not too far, worth the trip. Had beef on mash dish with roasted veg. Just the right amount and the beef fell apart. Really nice staff too!

Been to this place a few times now and always enjoyed it. Friendly staff, ample portions and always value for money. The last time I was there I had the ribeye steak which was on special and it was just delicious and perfectly cooked. Have recommended this place to friends and tourists.

Out for my friends birthday and was made to feel belittled and humiliated because I couldn't eat anything from the set menu but was willing to pay extra to get something from the a la carte menu and was told no, then asked personal questions regarding my medical and dietary needs in a busy restaurant with all the staff at...

This is a good restaurant that serves good food with a Scottish theme. Visited last night with family (6 of us) for an anniversary. Used the pre theatre menu (3 courses £16.95) which included a glass of house wine. Bottled water was on the table food was good and tasty. Service was excellent. Added bonus was the Glengoyne single malt... More
