We came here for my birthday dinner and we were not disappointed. I emailed to ask for a nice table and they arranged that for me. The service in this restaurant is always excellent. The food never disappoints and I would recommend the house red...More

This is the place. A gentle hub bub reflects the fantastic decor of the old Buttery, and I do like a restaurant with a table cloth ! From the moment you enter the, you know it is something different, something special. I am going to...More

Great food. Great service. Often these Glasgow institutions don't live up to their reputations and you feel let down by the service or the food. Not here. Very welcoming. Perhaps a little formal for lunch time but none the less a lovely atmosphere. Menu is...More
