I don't mind paying for a high standard of food but I couldn't help feeling that the value of this place is really poor for Glasgow. Many of the mains (which they sneakily call "plates") do not come with anything but the main ingredient even though they are already £14-£17 - you have to order sides to turn it into a meal! The soup starter at £5.50 was not even served with a slice of bread which just felt a bit mean. Many similar establishments go round offering fresh bread for free as standard. I'm guessing the value isn't there just because it's the "Merchant City".
The tables are also tightly packed in together and the chairs are not very comfortable at all - small, wooden and rickety. The type of music was also rather annoying for a restaurant and more suited to a bar in my opinion. Service was sufficient - neither particularly good or poor.
Don't let any of that detract from the fact that the food we did receive was well cooked and tasty but there are many other restaurants of a similar calibre offering far better value for money. I'd probably revisit for a breakfast or lunch but I'm not so sure about dinner.
