“Good as ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Was taken here for birthday meal and it is as high a standard as ever. We went after a concert but the place was buzzing when we arrived. What a marvellous atmosphere! The service was impeccable, prompt and friendly and the food was delicious. They have a knack here of making you feel really welcome and recognised, no matter how long since the last visit, a tip that many other restaurants could use. We'll be back again before long..

“A pleasure to visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

This is the first time in many years that I have had the pleasure of dining here. Recommended by my sister on a shopping trip to Glasgow yesterday we booked online for our evening meal. Wow! The ambiance and energy in the restaurant is incredible! A delightful dinner, equal to the professional service and the anticipated luxury of a short wait for fabulous food. Thank you!
