Description: We are a quaint, petite Italian/ Scottish style restaurant located on North Street in St. Andrews. Right across the road from the famous St Salvadors Quad and Chapel we house a 40 cover restaurant that serves delicious Pasta dishes and the infamous Hand Stretched Pizza's (we are the only restaurant in St. Andrews that does this!). We also offer a bi-daily special that normally includes Seafood that we source locally, but we renowned for our Seafood Linguine. This smoked paprika white wine dish drives the locals and tourists mad with its fresh taste and excellent value for money. This venue is an ideal location for couples, families, tourists and students as we deliver an unrivalled service that shapes itself to your specific requests.

Reviewed 21 August 2014

An excellent meal again at the Glass House. Fantastic and attentive service. The lasagne was gorgeous and trying to choose a desert was hard they are all lovely. Another great meal, a regular favourite restaurant of mine.

“Top notch but not too expensive”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

My wife, my 6-year-old son and myself had dinner at the Glass House tonight. The food was absolutely superb with a big tick for the kids pizza, the calzone, not too saucy, and bramble cheesecake, but the service was even better, never too much nor too little but just attentive for us to realise that we were being properly looked after. My son also loved the care and attention that he got with the playsheet and crayons. It's just a great place to eat where you're not really aware of those around you, there's a nice view of a big medieval-ish clock tower and chapel across the road and you can sit outside upstairs if the weathers good. It's not that expensive either but offers fantastic value for money.

“Great Value - Great Taste - Great Service”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

My girlfriend and I were in St Andrews for a family wedding and needed a meal to aid recovery the next day.
Taking a walk we stumbled on this little boutique restaurant, all the staff were friendly from when we entered and Jack our waiter was very helpful. The service overall was very good. I had the carbonara (a favourite of mine) and after trying my girlfriends smoke salmon pasta would recommend both. If you are in St Andrews I would highly recommend a trip to The Glass House.

“Perfect atmosphere service and food”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Coming from London for the weekend we were looking for an intimate place to have a nice meal, this was the perfect place, from the outside looking in the decor is immaculate, something which sets your expectations high before even taking a step inside, our expectations were met and exceeded.
From a warm welcome though the front door till we left the service was fantastic, friendly and effortless. Two young men served us, an Australian and a Scottish waiter. They are a credit to your business :)
The food was rich and a satisfying amount. I can't say there was anything to fault.
Thank you so much for everything, next time we are in town we will be visiting!
From managing bars and restaurants there are a lot of places that could learn from the glass house.

“Good service”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

So impressed with this restaurant and we didn't even eat there! We were early for a wedding in University Chapel, very windy day and we needed a coffee. Very nice chap said they were really a restaurant but there was a free table for two and he could do us just a coffee. Excellent coffee with shortbread ....just what we wanted. Full marks for hospitality and the food we saw looked delicious. We will come back to eat very soon. Thank you.
