Came here for a small family meal without a reservation but they were very accommodating and squeezed us in. Everything was perfect. Food, atmosphere, service. Best night out I'd had in Glasgow for a long time. Highly recommended

The 2 Fat Ladies upstairs is one of my fav restaurants in Glasgow. We were heading out with friends and thought we'd try downstairs. So glad we did. Amazing food just like its neighbour. £15 for a 2 course meal is just fab!

Really enjoyable early dinner before attending a show at the Hydro. Pleasant welcome with a nicely relaxed service throughout. Food was delicious and good value - £45 for two courses plus bottle of wine for two of us. Definitely worth a repeat visit.
