A real surprise tucked up a side alley. Breaded Haddock was magic, service good and surroundings very nice. Well worth a visit.

Having now read other reviews it appears that if you are using an itison voucher the service and the food are not good. Having arrived at the restaurant the waitress pointed us towards our table (not a good start), we ordered our food and drinks, we asked that our coffee be served after our meal. Our food then arrived with... More

We've been here a few times and have never been disappointed. This time we took my Mum and watched in awe as she scoffed her way through her breaded lemon sole and chips. If I have one complaint about this wee jewel in Glasgow's crown, it's that it's not very easy to see your plate in the dark at night... More

Knew about the restaurant for a while and finally made the effort to visit. It was well worth it. Down the lane it was, off busy Buchanan Street. On the 1st floor of a former office block. Great décor and very attentive staff. Cool surroundings to enjoy Haddock & Chips and enjoy the atmosphere of this chilled eatery. Not pretentious... More

Got my mum an Itison deal for an afternoon tea, she booked it in the morning and confimred with a man on the phone that it was an Itison deal. When we arrived we got told that 24 hours notice is needed to prepare the afternoon tea, the man who served us was very rude. We couldn't get the cakes... More
