“Best food :)”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

A lot of people go here for the drink but they dont know what they are missing by not ordering some food. Its a simple menu but with lost of flavour - the chicken wings rock!

“Bit Disappointed”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Kelvingrove cafe is another cool bar in Finnieston and I have been looking forward to trying it out for some food.

We got a nice table by the window, the staff were really attentive and the menu had a nice variety - unfortunately, the quality of the food didnt live up to the promise.

I had the fish and chips and my wife had a selection from their sliders menu. The food was ok but it wasnt as good as I would have expected. The presentation was good but the food lacked any depth in flavour and it just didnt have the finesse I would have expected.

Its still a really nice bar and we will go back - just didnt quite deliver on this occassion.
