Everything from the aesthetics of the restaurant to our waiter to our artful and really delicious but not pretentious food was perfect. My friend and I couldn't have... More

What an absolute gem of a place. I actually am so proud of this restaurant even though I don't know the owners. They just have everything spot on which is rare and the food.... My goodness it's so so good. Proper Scottish food but with an artistic twist. I wish I could afford to eat here more often. It's fantastic.

AMAZING food and service. I wish we could have eaten there every night of our stay in Glasgow. Near the University, it is a small gem worth going to.
