As we are regular visitors to Glasgow, we tend to stick with the places we know are good, but we passed by Guys and thought how attractive it looked and the menu was very appealing. We went in and reserved a table for that evening, Monday.i had a great feeling as we were greeted immediately by a friendly young woman... More

We went for Sunday dinner using our itison voucher. We were made very welcome and were very happy with the whole experience despite some of the negative reviews below. There were 4 choices for each course (with an amuse voucher starter). We had black pudding and poached duck egg for starters, spinach/butternut squash/feta filo parcel for me and veal escalope...

I really enjoyed eating here. I went on a recommendation from a friend and I wasn't disappointed. This is a long narrow restaurant and be warned, you can end up sitting close to where people stand at the bar. The food was really good. The duck egg and black pudding was my favourite. However, the sole that I had as... More

I will come back. Every time I visit Glasgow. For the food (the mussels are amazing, as is the duck and the beef tartar), for the ambiance and for the music. The only thing I regret is not coming here before. Two problems. Both are easy to solve. Guy's do not accept american express. And they ran out of champagne... More

Guys is a charming little place with lovely décor and friendly staff. The Glasgow Green Gin Cocktail is light, refreshing, garnished with an edible flower and to easy to drink! The menu itself is vast and has a good variety of dishes and ingredients. To start I opted for the Poached duck egg & Stornoway black pudding on a toasted... More

We were given an Itison voucher as a xmas gift for 4 courses, with a glass of Prosecco, tea, coffee and sweeties. On arrival we were given our menu which consisted of only 4 mains choices, one of which was steak with a £5 supplement, 2 others were sold out and had been supplemented. Our choices were therefore, steak, veal,... More

4 course meal sounds great, but left us wanting at every turn. The amuse bouche was completely different to what was advertised - a pile of tomato and omelette squares on a slice of candied orange anyone? My beef carpaccio was microscopic and flavourless, saved by the spiced onions. The lamb rack for two was about the size of one... More

It is two years since we last visited and nothing has changed - apart from the fact that on a mid-week lunch, whilst busy, the previously slightly harassed staff were no longer so and were not only efficient but engaging and friendly. The four course lunch - spread very nicely over a couple of hours - was excellent.

Would... More
