I've eaten here over a number of years and the quality of the food has never been anything other than excellent. It's one of these places that every time you go, you wonder why you hadn't been back sooner. It's not the most salubrious (but it's Glasgow we're not into that really) and it's small (intimate is good in my... More

Superb dining experience in Byres Road. Modern approach to traditional Scottish fare - halibut and venison first class - good wine and excellent service. One of our favourite Glasgow restaurants.

We ate here at lunchtime with friends and everything from the food , the atmosphere and the staff were superb. The flavours in the food were amazing. We can highly recommend the smoked duck starter which was incredibly tender and also the smoked haddock croquettes. For main course we had sea bream, which came in a deliciously delicate but flavoursome... More

We visited to celebrate my 60th birthday and had a lovely meal plus champagne. The quality of the cooking, presentation, tastes and textures of the food was excellent. The lighting was just right and the atmosphere even on a Monday evening was good. The waiting staff were helpful and overall the cost was very reasonable. We had a very enjoyable... More

We went to sixteen for a birthday celebration meal. Having previously emailed to ask for a glass of bubbly to start our meal, acknowledgement was swift and exceedingly welcoming. Service was superb, excellent staff always aware of our needs and prompt to satisfy those. The meal itself, and we were on the cheaper early evening menu, was both interesting in... More

We have eaten here at least a dozen times. Mostly lunches, which have had a small and limited menu. They have been uniformly excellent however. And the service has been prompt at lunch times. The place is often quite quiet at lunch times. We have eaten dinner here two or three tomes over the past few years. Again, excellent cooking.... More

Now - I wracked my brain trying to find something to fault...so I did. The mens toilet could be a few inches bigger and it was raining last time I visited! What can I say - a usual favourite. Excellent food, homely atmosphere and welcome. You feel like you are arriving at a friend's house. Recommend!

Like other reviewers I thought the menu a bit pretentious but when it was served to me by the lovely enthusiastic staff, the presentation and taste were fantastic. I had the oxtail followed by venison. They were exceptional. Nice bottle of Malbec helped the tastebuds explode. A salted caramel ice cream just put the icing on the cake. Would have... More

Interesting menu, probably not the best choice for vegetarians (although I am one!) but the food is very good.
