We booked the afternoon tea via 5pm. I had walked passed on various occasions and thought I should give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely decor and the very friendly staff. The afternoon tea was lovely and had a great selection with excellent portion sizes. We were serviced quickly and the staff were highly personable. I... More

I was given a voucher for this restaurant for a gift, for me and a partner to have a bubbly high tea i.e. a glass of prosecco each & sandwiches, scone & cakes. The service was very good, the food was very nice, the scones in particular were served with clotted cream & jam. The prosecco was chilled and the... More

I booked afternoon tea for my Mum and I, as I was taking her to the cinema, and the location was ideal! We are not particularly fussy, so I wasn't worried when I couldn't find the menu online. When we arrived the host was pleasant but after being seated, we were left for about 20 minutes. I eventually caught a... More

Lovely meal, the staff are a delight, very polite and helpful. The steak was fabulous and I'm told the gammon was the same, certainly looked great. The dessert was to die for. Best to book as this is a popular restaurant at all times of the year.

I visited with a friend for Sunday lunch, we hadn't booked ahead but they weren't too busy and found a table for us. The food when it finally came was delicious but we waited for almost half an hour before our order was taken. When we finally got a waitress she tried to sell us a side of chips with... More

Description
The original La Bonne Auberge first opened its doors on Bastille Day in 1975, and it's had something to celebrate ever since. Glasgow's first French-Mediterranean brasserie and Bar, this smart restaurant with its aproned waiters and blackboard menus now has an AA Rosette to confirm what the locals have known all along. Set in the fashionable Theatreland district, this is a feast of Riviera cuisine.
