“First evening in Glasgow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

On the day we arrived in Glasgow from Germany our daughter arranged through 5pm.com for us to have dinner at Cail Bruich. The deal included a glass of prosecco each and the choice of a 2 or 3 course meal. The food was excellent in every way. I especially enjoyed the Scrabster cod starter (fish from my old home town!). The waiter was attentive and showed evidence of a keen sense of humour. This is an excellent restaurant & we look forward to future visits.

Hello Happy Reise,

You'll have to pass my thanks on to your daughter - I'm very happy you all enjoyed your time with us - when you are back in Glasgow do let us know again.

Thank you for taking the time to also leave the review. We all really appreciate it here.

Kind regards,

Chris

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Took my wife here for a birthday dinner in march and cannot rate the experience highly enough, attentive service, food to die for and drinks to match, thank you to Paul and Chris for making me look good on my wifes birthday. For anyone going along I would advise getting Paul to match up your wines with your meal as the sweet chenin with the foie gras was magical.

“lovely lunch, going back to try dinner!!!:”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

First class, felt at home the minute we walked in the door, nothing was too much trouble for "mum" and even though we had the taster menu voucher, we felt really valued,chef even agreed to make a couple of changes for hubby who doesn,t like parmesan and me who doesn,t like anything from the sea. Overall would highly recommend it,

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Booked Cail Bruich at short notice. Would have preferred a restaurant somewhere in the city centre, however it was a delightful find in the west end and close to Subway stations. After entering from the cold outside through thick curtains, the restaurant was nice and warm. Staff were friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. The smoked mashed potato was lovely.

With it being a scottish restaurant I would have liked to have seen cranachan on the menu, however this is a minor point.

Hello there Ediski,

Thank you for your review, we all really appreciate it. If you don't mind me saying we do actually have it on the menu occasionally, but we like to change things regularly too so customers can try different desserts they might not otherwise have. I'd be happy to make a batch up for your next visit if you let me know when you are coming.

Thanks again,

Chris

Hello JHL950,

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Occasionally depending on the event we do different tasting menus, watch out for some of them in the future. Until then I hope we'll see you again soon.
