Great selection of food. Very classy restaurant. Great service. Fabulous food. However, I would take your glasses if you wear any as when you sign the bill at the end of service you can see if they had overcharged you or not.

Nice and cozy premises. Good tiny bar for the aperitif or for a couple of drinks! Enough wide menu' with the possibility to enjoy both fish and proper wine selection in a peaceful environment. Food was good. Absolutely to visit in Glasgow !

After visiting Scotland, I would say this is the best seafood we had during our visit. Everything we ordered was delicious and well prepared. Make a reservation in advance. Service was excellent and all courses came out in a timely manner. Try the seafood chowder...More
