“Best oysters in Glasgow”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely perfect oysters, the best I've tried in Glasgow so far! The all-crab crab cakes are a must try as well, as are the seared scallops. We had a mid-range Sauvignon which was very pleasant and the staff were all wonderful. Interesting daily special menu as well.

“Brilliant Seafood restaurant”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

I had razor clams, (they were called something like spoots? which I think is the scottish name for them) and hand-dived Scallops all from the West Coast of Scotland. Totally fressh and brilliantly cooked and presented. Lovely wine too. Our table was up in the little gallery which is a characteristic I like in these Glasgow restaurants. Lovely!

“Beautiful fish friendly knowledgable staff”
Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

A regular favourite tonight and the food was exceptional. Queenie Scallops always a favourite were very tasty and the Hake with a Hollandaise sauce was as nice a piece of fish as you could get. Staff were attentive, knowledgable and friendly as usual. All rounded off with a very nice glass of Spainish white wine.
