Called in on spec a few days ago as my colleague had recommended the restaurant. Great welcome and the family were able to accommodate my son and I for a meal at what seemed to be the only available table as so many reservations had been made. Food was superb - best cleaned and tasting mussels I have had in... More

Excellent freshly made food, prepared by family members, suitable for all ages as a children's menu is available. You can eat anything from a sandwich to a three course lunch or dinner, everything is of the same high standard.

I used tripadvisor to find a local restaurant as we usually travel into Glasgow central. We booked a table and were not disappointed, what a great find. I had the Con Gamberetti which was lovely and full of prawns. The steak that arrived was also very tasty. For a small Bistro they have a great selection of wine, and the... More

The starters (meatballs and mozzarella) were amazing both in flavour and size! both my wife and myself had the chicken parmigiana which was succulent and tasty with veg(for my wife)... More

I've been to the bistro a couple of times and I must say it's absolutely fantastic. The menu has so much to choose from and the portions are generous too. The menu is also very reasonable priced , You really won't be disappointed when you come to the Bistro. I would defiantly recommend booking a table as they fill up... More

Myself and 5 other family members went to the bistro to celebrate a 65th birthday. The staff were very welcoming and the place very comfortable. Staff were attentive and constantly checked everything was ok. The food was amazing, one of the best meals I have had in a long time. I love mussels and ordered the mussels in white wine... More

My husband and I visited The Bistro for his birthday after trying to decide on somewhere new to try. The reviews on TripAdvisor were excellent so we decided to give it a try. The full meal was delicious, we couldn't fault a thing! Very reasonably priced for a three course meal with a wide selection of choices that would suit... More

Went for a meal with 3 girlfriends last Thursday. 1st time we'd ever gone there. Table was booked for 7.30. Arrived on time & 4 cocktails took at least 20 minutes to arrive, & all at different times. We all ordered pasta dishes which were fine. However, when we went to order desserts at 8.45 were told, you don't have... More

Firstly can I say how sorry I am that you didn't enjoy your experience at the bistro. We take great pride in looking after our customers and we have done so for over 20 years. The Bistro is not on a main road therefore we have no passing trade, all our business is through bookings for this reason we close... More

Cracking little restaurant, quality food cooked perfectly. Extensive menu - kids menu has more options than most places full menu - all cooked from scratch, not a bag! Very well stocked bar too, nice selection of malts. I'm reliably informed the French Martinis were spot-on too.
