Located as an integral part of the Holiday Inn Glasgow - Theatreland, this was my first visit to this restaurant. I'd checked in to the hotel about an hour earlier, and didn't really fancy going out to eat. I was warmly welcomed and seated at a table. The menu was brought over and my drinks order was taken. There's a... More

Ate here last night with my partner, the food was absolutely amazing, we had the scallops with black pudding then sirloin and fillet steak with all the trimmings and it really was amazing and cooked to perfection, then 2 Irish coffees to follow before going up to our room in the adjoining holiday Inn. worth a visit

Saw the ad for "3 course dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine for £49.95" (restaurant seems to call it 3-2-1 [3 courses for 2 people with 1 bottle of wine]) in my opera programme. As I was off on holiday and spending the night in Glasgow, this looked worth a go. The food was on the better side... More

I was in town shopping and wanted a light lunch. We went there to have a filling bowl of soup in nice surroundings. Their French onion soup is always amazing and it is just right for a quick, light lunch.

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.
