Took my wife, mother, uncle, sister & brother-in-law here for a pre-theatre meal. Despite the staff knowing our time scale the meal was slow in coming. This meant it was rushed in the end and we never even had time for a sweet. I am...More

Staff here are amazingly friendly and courteous. The food is very good- restaurant is located in Holiday Inn Theatreland where we stayed- very convenient - especially for breakfast. We enjoyed the hotel and the restaurant.

Description
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.
