I stopped in here for a casual birthday dinner. Being from the States, I was happy to see a restaurant with a creole food offering. I had the chimichurri fish tacos and the cheesy jalapeno shrimp and grits - both were really wonderful and food you wouldn't normally get in Glasgow! It was a lovely day and there were plenty of people dining outside, but we enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere inside. I would go back again, either for food or a casual drink!

I visit this bar occasionally and when I do I usually wish I hadn't bothered struggling through the particularly non user friendly door. Last time it was being run as a club hut for the DJ and his cronies to try out some truly awful music. Two guys sat in the corner playing video games. The barman looked completely pissed off. I left.
