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.

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.

Although a small menu, the food here was lovely. Great attention to detail from the chefs and I would highly recommend. However, inattentive staff and sighs regarding minor requests, such as a glass of water, negatively affected the experience. It was also very busy on my visit so I would recommend booking in advance. Top Tip: You can exchange Tesco... More

Ate here whilst staying in the Holiday Inn. Had two courses for £16.95 plus a pudding, a very nice pate to start followed by the cod fillet which was also good. For pudding chose the Tunnocks ice cream thing which didn't work for me personally. Not bad but given all the choice elsewhere in Glasgow would probably try somewhere different... More
