Description: Brian Maule left his Ayrshire home town to train in the culinary capital of France, Lyon. Whilst there he worked with some of the country's most respected chefs. In 2001 he returned to Scotland to open his own restaurant in the city centre of Glasgow, Le Chardon d'Or. Since his return he has been acclaimed as one of Scotland's most prominent and accomplished chefs. He perfected his craft by leading a brigade of 18 notable chefs in the famed Two Michelin Starred restaurant Le Gavroche in London, alongside culinary legends Albert Roux & Michel Roux Jrn. Every year Le Chardon d'Or plays honoured host for these lifelong friends, Brian & Michel Roux Jnr to re-unite and deliver what is the most exclusive and sort after culinary event to take place in Glasgow, the'Le Gavroche' evening. 15 years on, Brian and his team still deliver an unrivalled fine dining experience to Glasgow residents and visitors alike. Brian's name isn't just above the door. He works in the restaurant every day where his flair & dedication to train his team in house shines through. This results in a meticulous standard whereby, no dish will leave his kitchen without him being completely satisfied. Paying homage to the bounty of the Scottish larder. Brian and his team experiment with flavours and imaginative combinations to create exquisite recipes which change with the season. As the restaurant celebrated its fifteenth anniversary in June, Brian knows that he has made a significant contribution to the UK industry. He is a staunch supporter of getting young people into the catering industry and is actively involved in the Culinary Excellence programme, helping youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds to experience life in a professional kitchen and dining room. Under Brian's training his youngest Chef Emma Grant(17)became Rotary Clubs winner of Young Chef Of The Year 2016 having out-shone 5000 other candidates. Brian is no stranger to recognition in the hospitality industry collecting many awards over his years. His most notable in 2013 when the prestigious Culinary Institute of Scotland titled him Chef of the Year. On the back of winning SLTN Restaurant of the Year 2015 - Le Chardon d'Or now await the verdict of 2016 as they are awarded shortlisted for the same award yet again.

“Excellent private party”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Attended private party in downstairs area. Good seating with drinks prior to meal. Excellent meal in private dining room (15 of us). Outstanding service throughout the evening. Could not fault anything. Not cheap but worth it!

“A dining experience to remember”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

As a restauranteur I am often dissafisfied with either the quality of food or the high prices paid in 'fine dining' restaurants, not with this restaurant. Niether pretentious or assuming, simply fine dining cooked to perfection, well priced and portions that left me feeling very well fed, not often the case in such restaurants. If it is good service and good food you seek this is the place to go, certainly when I return to Glasgow this will be my first port of call.

Just gorgeous, from the surroundings to the food to the staff. Pre theatre is a good way to sample their delish fayre but not massive portions
