restaurant ideas

Can you help?

Visiting elderly aunt and want to treat her to lovely Sunay lunch or possibly Sat evening meal - we are flexible. 2 teenagers in tow as well - so need something for us all. Want it to be a memorable occasion. Would really appreciate local inside knowledge!

If you are on the south side of Glasgow and have transport I can recommend the Uplawmoor Hotel,especially for an evening meal.

It is slightly old fashioned,with good staff and excellent food.

If you are driving, check out the Lodge on the Loch. It's right on the banks of Loch Lomond, really nice setting, if weather is good and about a 30- 40 minute drive from Glasgow City Centre. Check out their website for more info, they used to do a lovely Sunday lunch there, you would probably have to book.

Another place is Duck Bay Marina, in the same vicinity, I think it has had a recent upgrade, it's a few miles closer to Glasgow, probably a little cheaper.

Not too sure about city centre...............most Glasgow folk tend to sleep late on Sundays........unless they're at church of course........ and don't really go in for the big lunch thing!!

However some of the city centre hotels may have buffet/carvery style sunday lunch, check out the Moat House (think it's still called that!) beside the SECC, or Langs, city centre.

West Highland Gate.........a beefeater, I think, in Milngavie, is clean, reliable and the menu both for evening and sunday is varied and reasonably priced.............popular for family get-togethers. Paperinos, Byres Road, west end good for families, Oran Mor good food in the Brasserie, traditional style.

As for Saturday evening meal..................where would I begin, how much do you want to spend, what do you want to eat etc.etc.

One tip, you must book at least day or so in advance, anywhere that is good will be booked up particularly on Saturday evening.

Hope that's of some help!!

Happy eating.

I recommend Guy's in Candleriggs - good choice of well prepared dishes to suit everyone, efficient, friendly service and a tastefully decorated, yet comfortable dining area. Excellent.

Cafe Gandolfi in the Merchant City. It's a class act, great atmosphere. Glasgow instiution.

There's a good selection of places in Merchant Square. Food isn't always brilliant, but the cafes and restaurants have a good atmosphere. Same with the places in Princes Square.

Or try Ashton Lane - Ubiquitous Chip is generally good - or Byres Road in the West End.

It's best to book for a Saturday night. Sunday should be OK.
