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

We were able to take advantage of the 3 courses and bottle of wine deal for £50, which was excellent value for a Saturday night. the place was not that busy and it is really interesting to be in the basement of a church. The staff were pleasant enough, and we had a drink at the bar before moving to... More

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

Went here recently to meet up with friends while on holiday in Glasgow. The decor is very modern but, it is quite dark. We all enjoyed our meals and it was a great place to have a nice meal and catch up. The music wasn't loud and conducive to conversation.

We were introduced to this restaurant by friends who live in Glasgow and this really is a hidden gem. Located under St Andrews Church it's a surprise when you enter to find a modern, well appointed restaurant. The menu is quite extensive and all the dishes chosesn were good and had a Scottish twist to them. There was plenty of... More

We had lunch here while doing the open top bus tour. We sat inside initially but while it's quite a nice place, it's also quite oppressively dark, particularly on a sunny day, so we moved outside. We each had a club sandwich which came with unexpected fries and was delicious. My only gripe is that the toilets had clearly not... More
