A Nice Surprise

Delicious food with beautiful presentation; not overly complicated but tasty and elegant. The menu was varied without being bizarre, traditional to the country with a French flair. Really, really lovely and delicious.

Glasgow has few top-end restaurants, so this explains why Chardon d'Or can survive, nay - prosper. We had tried to get a table on a previous visit to Glasgow without success and were pleased to get one this time. What a let-down. Our reservation was for 8.00 and we arrived on the dot. The table was not ready and so... More

On arrival we were ushered straight to our table and not offered a drink at the bar first, then we sat for well over 10 minutes before anyone came near us. We eventually got some water and a glass of champagne after 30 minutes of arriving. We ordered and then the waiter came back and asked for our order again... More

Since returning to his native Glasgow after learning his trade in France and mastering it at Le Gavroche with Michel Roux Jr, it is easy to see why Brian Maule's Chardon d'Or (Golden Thistle) has been widely considered Glasgow's finest restaurant over the past several years. Well appointed in a fine building on the western fringe of the city, everything... More

Poor compared to previous visits. Totally ignored and had to push to be served. After one hour only had water and bread on table

On attending lunch at BrIan Maule I could not fault any aspect of the meal. The interior of the restaurant is simplistic but classic with consistent staff on hand, pondering to your every need. My boyfriend and I were in Glasgow for the night and after reading reviews decided it was a must go. It was similar to every Michelin... More

This restaurant was beautiful. The decor, ambiance and everything about it was lovely. The staff were quietly attentive and friendly. We had the celebration menu and I had the matching wines. The food was out of this world and the Somelier was a genius! The wines were married beautifully with the food. An outstanding night. Thank you to everyone, you're... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant on an offer. We were greeted warmly on arrival and shown to our table. The restaurant is very well appointed and the food and wine were of the highest order, especially the steak which was as good as I have ever had. Staff were very friendly and attentive.
