Super charming staff. Delicious simple menu. Classic cocktails. A restaurant full of character. I'm sure the tables are wonderful but we had a great evening sat at the bar counter knocking back cocktails, chatting with the waiters and eating wonderful seafood. This place is confident in itself and all the better for not being renovated in the last ten years.

I ordered just some snacks and wine while sitting outside to enjoy one of the few beautiful Scottish evenings. The food was good, nothing spectacular, but service was great. Everyone was very friendly and pleasant to chat with. I would go back just for the service.

With a unique 1930's art deco style, The Rogano is probably the oldest surviving restaurant in Glasgow and sadly is beginning to show its age. Once upon a time, it would have been a striking building in the centre of the city but has been overtaken by pedestrian only precincts and rather garish fast food chains. The service was OK... More

This was a very disappointing lunch. My wife ordered mussels but when they arrived they were only lukewarm and at least 12 (a good percentage) had not opened. We regularly cook mussels at home and have never had such a bad ratio, clearly not cleaned thoroughly. When pointing this out we had a half hearted apology, which just typified the... More

I have frequented Rogano's on many occasions over the last 30+ years and have lots of good memories and happy times of both at the Restaurant and the Café. Indeed my wife and I were both evacuated from the Restaurant in the summer of 1997 when a fire broke out in the kitchen. So, where better to go for a... More

Had some time to kill between Commonwealth Games events and came in here for a relaxed lunch. Seated in the cafe downstairs, the atmosphere was good and the service was excellent. Had a King Prawn Caesar Salad and a seafood and chorizo linguine. All was very well prepared. Worth a visit.

We went to Rogano for a pre theatre before heading out for a girls night celebration for my mum's birthday. The best thing at Rogano is the accommodating servers. I told them it was my mum's birthday and they arranged lovely chocolates and a plate with happy birthday written in chocolate. They also helped hide me when I wanted to... More

Slightly on the pricey side for Glasgow but well worth it. Probably the best oysters I've had, really chunky and fresh, the sea bass was delicious and whatever else we had was of the best kind also. They obviously know their cocktails as well, since we finished off with a few Margaritas, and these were also made to perfection. To... More

Chose Rogano as they are well known for their seafood & I thought it would be a good point of call for my first lobster experiance. After coming into the restraunt we were led to our table, & the old decor is very noticable. I know rogano is one of glasgows older seafood reatraunts, however it looks like the decor... More
