The original La Bonne Auberge first opened its doors on Bastille Day in 1975, and it's had something to celebrate ever since. Glasgow's first French-Mediterranean brasserie and Bar, this smart restaurant with its aproned waiters and blackboard menus now has an AA Rosette to confirm what the locals have known all along.

This is certainly fine dining at its best! We have visited before and, as before, made to feel most welcome and not rushed. The food was superbly presented and very tasty! Great location for theatres etc with parking nearby. Look forward to our next visit.

The food is always excellent, the staff are obviously well trained and very attentive without being pushy and the cost is very modest. A great place to eat and enjoy a glass of wine!

The restaurant decor is tasteful and cosy and the restaurant is really warm. The staff were friendly and attentive, especially... More
