Very welcoming and the views are stupendous. Food selection was unfortunately very predictable. The availability of gluten free food was poor. My husband was offered an omelette which is not what is wanted when going out for a meal. It struck me that there was a distinct lack of knowledge or interest in specific dietary needs.

We went there on the recommendation of my brother who is a local. The Catalan fish stew was one of the best meals I have ever had. My partner had the same and we agreed that it was excellent. Will definitely visit again.

We had 2delicious meals at the Osborne. The staff were friendly and very attentive. The choice of food was excellent and the lamb meal was outstanding. We were very impressed and would recommend this restaurant. The added bonus was the view over the Clyde ....wonderful!

You will sit in front row with view of firth of Clyde and the boat traffic. The Osbourne has got a small team but everyone... More

wonderful food and quick, friendly service. If you're over this side of the river for lunch or dinner, this is the place to be. If you have a good appetite, the portion sizes will definitely no disappoint
