Visited some friends in Glasgow and they took us here for a meal on a Sunday evening. Very good food, very reasonably priced, nice setting and atmosphere. Service could have been a little sharper but overall, a very enjoyable evening. Definitely recommended.

This is the second time this year I have made a point of turning a one night stay into two nights specifically so I can have dinner here. First time I've been here that hasn't been a Friday or Saturday, so it was quieter than the other times I've eaten here. Staff are wonderful, friendly without being intrusive, & seem... More

This restaurant sits beneath Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery. The food is wonderful and the Service attentive without being OTT. A bottle of water is brought tot he table as well as fresh bread. A very good range of interesting dishes and excellent value.

Been here a number of times but our latest visit left us disappointed. Still has the cosy atmosphere & quaint decor which is embellished by the warm welcome from the pleasant, attentive staff. However, on a visit to the ladies' loo, there was a strong smell of dampness & areas of wall appeared to be affected by damp. The amazingly... More

Went here for a birthday dinner with 12 people and the place had just the right atmosphere. Small and cozy, but also a fancy quirky touch. Staff were very nice and we had two great courses for £12 (or £15 for three) and a bottle of wine for another £12. Given that the food was very fresh and very good,... More

Very nice decor and ambiance; tables well separated; terrific young, friendly and efficient staff.Well cooked and well presented food .Restaurant has chosen to offer 3 course for about £18, so portions are modest, and choice limited.Unusally, drink prices are very reasonable too.Noboby in Glasgow can match them in the £60 or so category for 2. Outstanding.

Four of us went to the Shandon Belle's for a Sunday late lunch. Everything about this restaurant was ideal. We sat downstairs and even the decor is lovely - smart yet homely, makes for a comfortable dining experience. The staff were lovely, chatty and willing to help if we asked about particular dishes or drinks. I had the hummus which... More
