The tastiest fish I've ever had. Absolutely delicious. I had the sashimi to start which was beautifully presented and had deliciously spicy wasabi. For the main I had the stone bass which was incredibly amazing. The broth was coconut with light Cajun and the addition of the lime brought the whole dish together. The fish as exquisitely cooked and the... More

Finally some decent food in Glasgow. I went for the scallops and monkfish cooked in ginger in the paper bag. Delicious. Lots of flavours. There was a table of 12 japanse to our left. Over 50% went for the same. Lots of empty plates. I passed on the starter and then went for the bakewell tart. Again lovely. I can... More

A delight on the palate as everything served to us delivered the finest balances of flavour from a highly skilled and passionate kitchen. Well done ! And thank you... More

My husband and I visited for dinner on Thursday 14th July 2016. Before our meal we sat in the bar area for a pre dinner drink. Our first impression was that the bar and restaurant area were stunning and beautifully decorated. For our starters I ordered the crayfish and mango cocktail and my husband ordered the seabass. Both our starters... More

Excellent food as always. Before leaving I was given a bag tied with blue ribbon containing some of the restaurant's delicious home made tablet. If... More

Visited on a quiet Saturday afternoon. Opted for set lunch with different starter. Food was good and service was friendly enough. It is however overpriced for what it is.

This was a pleasant surprise ... located a short walk from the city centre up the hill and in a basement it could easily go undiscovered. The food was excellent ... lovely seafood and clear notes about where ingredients were sourced. We were recommended the Wine of the Month ... which were unsure about ... but the recommendation was spot... More
