Eight of us former workmates met for lunch last Monday. Restaurant pretty quiet. Food was reasonably good though tended to be a bit spicy for our taste.

We booked as a group of 9, we were offered a special price for three courses which included a bottle of wine between two. The food was excellent, wine lovely and the waitress really pleasant.

Was here for lunch but the place seemed rather lifeless - the service was good but we did feel that there were more staff than customers. Food was average - there are lots of better places to eat in Glasgow. However, if you want to be handy for the theatre/concert hall/cinema then it does the trick.

We were the first in at lunchtime and my brother ordered a bottle of Prosecco with no offer from the barman, who had no one else to serve, to carry it over to our table in the bar so we had... More

Had the set 2 course lunch and found it to be good value. The pate starter and soups were very good. The mains of pork loin, cajun chicken and mushroom risotto with asparagus, like the burger, were all very good too. Overall, the service was very good and I would recommend.

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.
