How is it possible for one of Glasgow's original foodie restaurants to offer a 3-course bistro menu downstairs for 15£?? NO IDEA. But it was outstanding. Plus 15£ bottles of wine. Friendly service and terrific food. Brava to the chef making it happen on her...More

Been here several times and very good. On recent visit very disappointing. Limited menu. Standard of food no better than average/poor pub - fish and mushy peas, dry steak pie and over salted stir fry. Will not go back.
