“Superb food in special surroundings”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

If you want a special meal in Glasgow, One Devonshire is the place to go. The setting is an elegant townhouse in the leafy west end. The restaurant is part of the Hotel du Vin - frequented by royalty and film stars (though they probably eat privately).

There are four inter-linked dining rooms, a large reception room with bar and a whisky bar. The rooms ooze elegance - dark panelled walls, crisp white linen and candles create a romantic atmosphere. The tables are well spaced so that it feels intimate, even when full.

The food is superb. On my most recent visit I had ham terrine, game casserole and pear sorbet- all bursting with flavour. Son had crab bisque, truffle tagliatelli and a huge slab of sticky toffee pudding with cornish ice-cream - and cleared all the plates. Bread is home-made and delicious. Coffee comes with fudge, mini sponges and cinder toffee. All of this on the fixed price menu for less than £20.00 a head booked through 5pm (coffee and drinks extra). You can pay more (lots more) for the a la carte and the Tasting menu - I'm sure they are worth it - but for me the chance to eat in a great restaurant for very ordinary prices makes the deal. You can also pay big prices to try some exceptional wines - but the staff will be happy to help you to choose a nice glass (or two) to match your meal.

The service is excellent. Friendly waitresses who make you feel welcome but are also efficient. We had a delay between the main course and dessert - some hiccup in the kitchen. It wasn't a problem and we hadn't complained - but we got an extra course ( a blackcurrant sorbet) as compensation for the delay.

I've eaten out in a lot of places - but for special occasions I keep coming back here. The setting, the food and the service have always been excellent- and always made for a memorable meal.

“Brilliant from start to finish”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The restaurant is situated in a large old townhouse, with lots of different rooms, which makes for a more intimate experience. Staff were all professional but friendly. The lovely trainee sommelier was keen to try out all she had learnt and had us trying a Uraguayan dessert wine - Alycone Tannat, which really was delicious and I don't generally drink sweet wines. All the food was superb, the atmosphere is very relaxing and for a special occasion (or any occasion for that matter), it is well worth a visit.

“star quality. be patient and experience the best in Glasgow”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Reading other reviews a consitent compalaint is timing in dishes - my suggestion, order from the bar then be patient and understand that starter and main come back to back when ready. It takes around 40 minutes to make an amazing starter from scratch -- 60 minutes a main. if that isn't good enough go to Nandos. This is a fantastic dining experience. The service is excellent and friendly - present but unobtrusive. It's akin to a great US dining experience in that what you put in you get back x2 or x3. If you expect to sit back and just get you might be disapointed but if you treat dining like theatre and contriibute to the experience you will have a great time. The food is exceptional, tge Chef a genuine star and if the bistro doesnt have a Michelin star in the next 12 months I'd be astonished.
