Pretty tasty buuuut

It's a bit overpriced for what it is. My starter was great (mackerel with lots of textural interest and an amazing horseradish jelly) and my partners desert was delicious but the rest was a little underwhelming. Maybe the brasserie is a better option price wise.

We had a fabulous 'graduation menu' to celebrate the graduation of my children. The food was delicious and copious and to the excellent standard it has been each time we have visited

This iconic Glasgow restaurant is as famed for its interior as much as its food. Tropical plants overhang the airy and spacious dining area and there is more seating on a mezzanine floor. The restuarant makes extensive use of traditional Scottish fare and many ingredients are locally sourced. There is a good range of beers and interesting wines and staff... More

Always liked thisplace. Friemd;y, chatty but not pushy staff, great menus and perfectly executed dishes. All in a delightful setting. If you are visiting the West End and were only to visit one restaurant, take advantage of the fixed price lunch menu, its really excellent value.

On a recent trip to Glasgow we stopped in the Ubiquitous Chip and tried the haggis - it was delicious. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed

We were in Glasgow for two days and wanted to try good restaurants there. This place came up on many lists so we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. I'm not a big fan of Scottish food but I found everything we ordered actually tasty! The appetizers weren't too salty (I found most Scottish dishes... More

Having grown up in the Glasgow area, I was very surprised to find this delightful restaurant in the University of Glasgow area. This restaurant could be dropped into Manhattan (or any other chic area), and would be an instant hit. They have a casual restaurant upstairs, and more formal downstairs. We ate in both, and were very impressed with both.... More
