Have been to the restaurant about 6 times over the years, the menu has changed significantly since our last visit! Why would you go out for a meal to what is supposedly one of the better restaurants in Glasgow just to get mince and tatties, or fish and mushy peas. Staff and food all remain good, and is good value... More

Took me back to the old days of bistros French style service. Menu was limited but that's a good thing. You know the... More

my bf and I found ourselves having a baby-free Tuesday, so decided to go out for dinner. had a quick look on 5pm and saw a deal for Shandon Belles for £8 for 2 courses. I had been before (and liked it - see previous review) so decided we couldn't really go wrong. Tbh, we weren't expecting that much, because,... More

Really looking forward to visiting here after having a fantastic experience at the sister restaurant 'Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery'. Really disappointed with the quality of food and service. The choice was poor and even the dishes the food was served in were poor, we were also over charged for wine. Won't be back!

I was looking for a restaurant in Glasgow that had a particularly romantic setting and this definitely fit the bill. I have also dined at The Buttery and even though that restaurant is typically more renowned, I actually prefer Belles. There is a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere unlike most other places in the city centre and the price of... More

We tried to get a table at the Two Fat Ladies, but it was full. So we went to the Shandon Belles and were pleasantly surprised. Cosy place, good food, good value.
