Visited last night. As always excellent service. New menu with lots of choice. Ginger the chef is excellent .Food of highest quality accommodates requests and the food is beautifully presented. Can never find fault with the food here and amazing value for money.

Amazing food, each course was beautifully cooked and presented. Staff were friendly and helpful; efficient and attentive without being intrusive. Relaxed atmosphere. A wee bit out of the city centre but well worth the walk (or taxi fare). Good variety of choices for each course....All the dishes were exceptional but the passion fruit cheesecake was sublime. Prices were very reasonable for the quality with freshly prepared and cooked ingredients.More

My wife and I visited this super little restaurant during a weekend in Glasgow. It has a varied menu. The ambiance was great, the service perfect and the food excellent. Brilliant value too.

I can’t thank the team enough in helping to make my husbands surprise party just perfect. The food was lovely, the wine delicious. The staff were very patient and considerate when we were still there late. Noting was too much trouble from an extra table...to wine from the Buttery. There was 16 of us and once the restaurant had cleared or felt very intimate as we had the place to ourselves. Great night has by all.More

Delighted to be back here - visiting Glasgow with my best friend, to whom I'd given an IOU for dinner here as part of her relatively recent 60th birthday present, as I've been banging on to her for years about how much I love this...restaurant - she loved it & is definitely a fan!. Food was outstanding, especially my crispy gnocchi & wild mushroom starter - I asked for a spoon to finish every last bit of the delicious sauce, as licking the plate was not an option! Staff as polite, friendly & charming as ever, & the complimentary bottle of wine courtesy of manager Rory because of a mix-up when I was in Glasgow earlier this year was a lovely touch, so thank you for that. I hope the charming gentleman from Brisbane who we met at our hotel & to whom I recommended this restaurant managed to dine here. As I've said before, I can not recommend this place highly enough & look forward to my next visit when I am in Glasgow again.More

I reviewed this restaurant just over 4 years ago with the title “Great food, value, service...everything”. Many restaurants have ups and downs as waiting staff/chefs/management change but, after various visits since my last review, I’d like to confirm that every single time has been an...absolute pleasure. If you’d like some fresh, flavoursome food, reasonably priced and served in a friendly and efficient manner don’t hesitate to visit. My only disappointment was being too full to order a dessert, they all sounded delicious!More

In Glasgow for the weekend and came across this bistro. Everything about it is fabulous, the food and service is 5 star and I can not recommend enough. It’s great value for money and definitely al a cart. Couldn’t have asked for a better night...without the hussell and bussel of Glasgow City Centre on a Saturday night. Cannot believe the quality of the food and wine for the price and once again can not recommend enough. Go if you are in Glasgow.More

If you mean to get to the restaurant in the basement, then no, there are stairs.
