I used to go to this place lots but haven't been in a few years. I now won't be going back. First of all when we arrived the place smelled subtly of the toilets. Our menus came fast but it was about 20mins before we were asked for a drink or for our order. The food was alright, nothing special or imaginative but tasty enough. We asked for ketchup but this never came. When we had finished the waiter saw our empty plates but never took them. He was doing other stuff for other tables, nibbling food behind the bar and then sat down. The only other member of staff was then standing behind the bar cleaning glasses. After a while I just went up to pay the bill as we would have waited ages to get it. There was another table nearby who had their empty plates in front of them the whole time we were there. I would not recommend this place at all.

Some friends took me to Stereo as they go a lot, and it lived up to my expectations!

the haggis fritters are divine, as are the tempura veg, pizzas and sweet potato chips. some reviews on here say the service is bad - maybe we were just lucky but the staff were friendly and approachable with lots of smiles. wine choice good and liked the atmosphere, played some good tunes too! definately be back.

Being tucked away up a lane doesn't seem to have caused much of a problem for this place. No doubt that is because of the delightful tastiness of their food! The interior is quite basic/minimalist with a weird toilet set-up, and perhaps the hard wooden benches could do with some cushions, but don't let that put you off this wee hidden away gem.

This bar/restaurant is tucked away down a lane in Glasgow city centre but is well worth finding. The service is always good and the food is excellent with a great choice and there are usually daily specials as well as the main menu. It is great value for money as well as being great food.
