Excellent food, local products, good range of beers ( wine not too bad either) and very friendly staff. I would say avergae prices for what it offers and best of all extremely dog friendly!

Came here after a walk in kelvin grove park on a sunny day for a few pints and a bite to eat. Pints went down an absolute treat in the hot weather. Food was very nice and would definitely go back.

Firstly on entering lovely service, drink order taken and all served quickly and efficiently. We then decided to eat and all I can say the starters of ribs, chicken satay and prawns were all superb we even ordered another portion of ribs. Main courses were also nice although my burger was over cooked but not to the point I could... More

Whereas genuine cuisine fusions can be fascinating (Indo-French at London's Cinnamon Club comes immediately to mind), different cuisines that simply rub shoulders on an eclectic menu frequently offer the most superficial fare but not so at the Scottish/eclectic Left Bank where the menu offers a variety of cuisines with panache. We could have chosen Mexican, Spanish or Indian favourites but... More

Had another lovely breakfast here. I have had 3-4 breakfasts over the last 3 years and the standard has never deteriorated. Very mellow and welcoming, I always enjoy it. Very good staff who are very accommodating. The wheelchair toilet is very good, clean and spacious. Will definitely be returning.

In general the food here was good and all three of us would definitely go back. All starters were good although the ribs and chicken skewers were only lukewarm. The three main courses were delicious, I had the chilli and loved it. The only downside was the wine list which we all felt was far too expensive for this style... More

I was taken here by colleagues for a birthday meal, which was ruined by the fact I was vomiting within half an hour of eating. I emailed the restaurant and received a dismissive response, claiming that it could not possibly have been their food, despite me having felt perfectly fine before eating. I decided not to pursue the complaint at... More

In Gibson street a stones throw from Glasgow University this tastefully decorated cafe bistro is frequented by academic staff students and some media celebrities. Bar has wide selection of cocktails available as well as specialist ales. Restaurant menu varies throughout day from quirky breakfasts to snacks, coffees or light... More
