My meal here in the Shandon belles was FANTASTIC. I dined a couple of months ago with my brother before we went to a concert. The food was delicious, the service was great and the atmosphere was lovely although quiet for lunch it was a great ambiance. The waitresses were lovely and knew all the ins and outs about the...

The continuing adventures of introducing my good lady to some of my favourite Glasgow eateries although this was one I hadn't revisited for quite a while. I was surprised and a bit disconcerted to see how quiet it was on our arrival at 7pm on Friday but it filled up quickly as we dined. From the outset, the service was... More

We had arranged a meal here with a group from the gym. From the word go it was organised to suit us and an extremely competitive deal was agreed .All our requests were met in full and the meal was excellent! The staff couldn't have been nicer and everyone enjoyed the evening. I have been to this restaurant several times... More

A regular dinner out where we like to try new places, and, although we had both been to Shandon Belles before we hadn't been there together. So, we both knew roughly what to expect and had booked a table, very necessary as it remains as popular as ever, quite rightly so. We had the full 3 courses, which were all... More

We decided to go along here after reading some other reviews and we were all delighted that we did. The staff were very friendly and professional. They remembered who ordered what without having to ask when they brought our food (and drinks). The food??? Amazing!!!! Really tasty and good sized portions. Each member of our party was singing its praises... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants and we often go for a meal here. However it has to be said that our last visit was not really that good. VERY limited menu with choices that were more akin to pub food. Sausage and mash and macaroni cheese. In fact, had we not ordered drinks before looking at the menu,... More

This is the little sister restaurant to Two Fat Ladies. My husband and I ate here on our first night in Glasgow. It is a very short walk from the Hilton Hotel. The ambience is intimate and casual, the service friendly and quick and the food excellent and a great value. It feels like a locals favorite spot.

Fantastic, tasty food at a reasonable price. Atmosphere is great with the mismatched, vintage crockery. Service is always good. Will be returning.
