Thoroughly enjoyed a few meals and drinks here. The service of Stuart at the bar was particularly hospitable and welcoming. He took very good care of us and had some wonderful recommendations on food and drink. Ask for Stuart!

Courteous staff, took on board that we needed to be out for the ballet and timed everything so there wasn't a rush but no delays either. Well located for several theatres and the Concert Hall. Managed to get booked easily. Food was fine, nothing spectacular but well prepared and portion sizes were reasonable. Interesting way of portraying the items on... More

Restaurant is in a good location for Theatre Royal and has nearby parking. Staff were friendly and polite throughout the evening. The problem we had was with the timing of the service and attention to detail. A couple of side dishes didn't arrive by the time we had finished our main courses and there was little point in bringing them.... More

Popped in here for a drink on our way to our hotel after a show at the SEC. A very beautiful bar and extremely busy too but strangely enough, it wasn't noisy. Service was excellent. Drinks were good and my wife also had a sausage roll. It was delicious and huge. A very nice bar and I will definitely return.

Dined as part of our stay, we ate in the dining area closest to the reception. Good choice, staff aware of the menu content and good service. Not bad value overall

We have eaten here many times over a number of years and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. Today our lunch was delicious. Standout for me was the slow cooked beef, whilst my husband loved his cod dish. Service is always good and the food is served well. We will definitely return.

Started off well apart from so many supplements on a pre theatre menu and having to pay for veg. The service was quick, a bit to quick. 3/4s of the way through our chicken dish discovered it was raw in the middle Notified staff but was told it was a vein. It was blood red raw. No apologies were given.... More

Prior to a Celtic Connections concert at the Concert Hall we had a pre theatre meal at La Bonne Auberge. Location and atmosphere are ideal for this iconic Glasgow restaurant. Food was excellent in the opinion of all four of us. Menu was ideal for the occasion but I did not appreciate the optional gratuity being included on the bill... More

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.
