This restaurant probably deserves a 4 star review. The food was excellent and the staff also were excellent. Even though it's a good quality restaurant the food was probably a bit over priced. A fillet steak main course on its own costs £30. My reason...More

Used a 5pm voucher for two courses including a glass of wine for 2 people. From the moment we arrived we received excellent service and were made very welcome. Meal and wine delicious and not rushed at all. A must visit in my opinion.

The original La Bonne Auberge first opened its doors on Bastille Day in 1975, and it's had something to celebrate ever since. Glasgow's first French-Mediterranean brasserie and Bar, this smart restaurant with its aproned waiters and blackboard menus now has an AA Rosette to confirm what the locals have known all along. Set in the fashionable Theatreland district, this is a feast of Riviera cuisine.
