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. Set in the fashionable Theatreland district, this is a feast of Riviera cuisine, with dishes including wild mushroom and leek risotto cake with grilled asparagus.

I use Groupon and Amazon local to source deals for restaurants all over Glasgow. In terms of variety of choice the menu was limited,however each dish that the four of us sampled from the three sources was excellent. This together with attentive but not intrusive service and nice surroundings made for a hugely enjoyable evening. Plus remember that they also... More

I cannot recommend this restaurant after our experience. I was surprised to see the restaurant half empty on a saturday night but you can understand afterwards. I must admit it all started very well and I was very impressed about the staff concern for our dietary requirements since the time we booked the dinner over the phone. They were ready... More

We held our Annual Shakespeare Birthday Dinner in the Function Suite. We had a pre-ordered dinner for 24. The meal was excellent, the staff were very organised with our choices and courteous. All in all they helped to make it a very successful evening. The room looked most attractive as the Oval table had candelabra making the room look warm... More

Afternoon cream tea for 2, 5pm deal £30.00, very disappointing to say the least, had to share 1 portion of cream and jam for 1 miniature scone each, selection poor quality, the manager had no customer service skills and very unwelcoming, tried to charge us extra, when found out no apology.

An American friend was staying overnight in the Holiday Express and had invited us here for dinner. All four of us chose Beef Bourguignon which was delicious. It had been a number of years since we had eaten here and I had forgotten how narrow the dining area was and how noisy it could get. Very welcoming staff.
