We came to Shandon Belles for a 2-course lunch. The soup starter was nice but my friend's haggis starter did not have any turnip nor did the bacon cream sauce taste of bacon, or in fact anything. My friend had a chicken pie for her main course that only hard one piece of chicken in it. My main was gnocchi... More

Decided to try somewhere I hadn't been before although one of my friends had been a few times and had liked it..she too was disappointed with the menu we had. The place was very quiet for a Friday lunchtime..the dining area is nicely set out and quaint. Welcome was fine and we were given our menus and I decided on... More

We fell into this local gem as it was a short walk from the Marriott Hotel and we were tired from a long day of touring. It is downstairs from their parent restaurant Two Fat Ladies which is top rated but very expensive. Shandon Belles was more of a local hangout but offered a wonderful experience for a reasonable price.... More

I had a lovely meal - while the regular menu looked great, I was particularly intrigued by specials for both starter and mains. Excellent food, carefully cooked rare steak as requested. Service was charming and I couldn't believe how cheap it all was!

Been meaning to visit for a while, so finally made it along with the girls. The very reasonably priced menu and wine made it an attractive mid-week option. The food was ok, but nothing was overly impressive, and that was disappointing. My starter of feta and beetroot salad with orange yogurt was not well balanced. I had a goats cheese... More

Visited some friends in Glasgow and they took us here for a meal on a Sunday evening. Very good food, very reasonably priced, nice setting and atmosphere. Service could have been a little sharper but overall, a very enjoyable evening. Definitely recommended.

This is the second time this year I have made a point of turning a one night stay into two nights specifically so I can have dinner here. First time I've been here that hasn't been a Friday or Saturday, so it was quieter than the other times I've eaten here. Staff are wonderful, friendly without being intrusive, & seem... More

This restaurant sits beneath Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery. The food is wonderful and the Service attentive without being OTT. A bottle of water is brought tot he table as well as fresh bread. A very good range of interesting dishes and excellent value.

On every occasion we have thoroughly enjoyed our visit. With exceptional value for money, a restaurant staff who have taken very good care of us each time, but above all delicious top quality food.
