Martin Wishart at Loch Lomond

Leven, West Dunbartonshire, 45-60£
18/03/2017: We visited while staying nearby with relatives, having previously dined here while staying in the lodges by the loch. On both e occasions the dining experience was fabulous. The food innovative, fresh and so full of flavour. The tasting menu we each had was skilfully designed to hit all your taste buds - which it did with perfection. The staff were friendly and helpful. They showed their knowledge of the menu and provenance of the food in a most helpful manner. The only downside is that we live in England and cannot visit more often!
17/03/2017: Recently returned here for a lovely meal with family. Not as good as our last meal here 6 months ago but still very good. Apple and chestnut dessert was a big miss for all of us though the cherry and chocolate dessert afterwards was stunning. Great staff. Friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Bit odd seeing hotel staff using guest toilets in a 5* hotel though he wasn't from the restaurant team.


Ranjit's Kitchen

Southside Central, Glasgow City
18/03/2017: Just back from a great visit to India where we (mostly) loved the food, my wife and I fancied an Indian for lunch and chose to visit Ranjit's Kitchens based on it Trip Advisor reviews, and the fact that we were staying in Shawlands for a few days. The quality of the food matched that of our favourite restaurant in Jaipur. Completely authentic feel and the prices, while not quite matching those in India, were very reasonable indeed. Would recommend the Panjabi Thali - but everything looked good. Friendly service. Bench type seating is nice - but probably not the place for a romantic dinner.
12/03/2017: I've been making ad-hoc visits to Ranjith's since 2015 and 9 out of 10 times, I have come away satisfied. The menu is simple yet fulfilling and the food is made with fresh, seasonal ingredients with a home-made touch. The menu has changed little since two years but they don't need to make any changes as it's working so well. In Glasgow, where indian curries taste the same in every other restaurant, pulling wool over customers' eyes ( and palate!) it is refreshing to return to Ranjith's to rediscover what authentic panjabi vegetarian cuisine is really like. If this were in the city centre or west end, it would blow the competition out of the loch! Quantity, quality and price ticks every box and long may it continue. If there is an area they could look into, it would be the cooking oil floating in some of their curries. At times there is none but at other times, there is some. Same with the levels of hot spice.The sweets are tasty although, I guess it would be too much to ask to make them with a sugar substitute like Stevia/date syrup/gur. Ranjith's works for me because it is different from every north Indian restaurant in town in a very good way. Thanks to the mediocre standards of other Indian restaurants, I will be making future visits to this last place of hope in Pandora's curry box.


Number 16

Partick West, Glasgow City, <20£
18/03/2017: We had a late Valentine's supper because this wee restaurant is so popular we hadn't booked early enough to get a table for the 14th FebWe were brought iced water without asking, always a good sign. Excellent rolls with balsamic flavoured oil also without asking. We ordered a bottle of the house red, a South African Pinotage, which was good. For starters we had very tasty squid with peppers and tender smoked duck breast with salad. For mains a very good pan fried halibut with beetroot and cauliflower and the other dish was very juicy tender venison with veg. For puddings a chewy macaroon with cream and raspberries and a creamy raspberry desert in the absence of the profiteroles which had all been taken. Excellent espresso coffee.
18/03/2017: This is a great place and the food is beautifully cooked with real flair. The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient, yet didn't get in the way.


The Fish People Cafe

Govan, Glasgow City
19/03/2017: Visited this restaurant last night and had a very enjoyable meal. Only slight criticism is that we had to wait for our table to be ready and then waited an hour for our starters. That said, the server was very pleasant, the food excellent and we really enjoyed our dinner. It is a little bit pricey, especially the extra cost for vegetables and potatoes but the food is cooked to perfection and served beautifully.
19/03/2017: This restaurant was recommended by friends . We were not disappointed . I had a delicious crab starter with Melba Toast followed by seared scallops with spring onion in a light ginger sauce , delicious . My husband had the crab linguini with chilli which he said was wonderful . The restaurant is small but makes up for it with the friendly attentive staff and nautical themed interior . Fish lovers will not be disappointed as the fish is supplied by the fish shop next door . A definite Glasgow stop for gourmet .


Fanny Trollope's

Anderston / City, Glasgow City, >100£
18/03/2017: Went here on basis of trip advisor reviews. Was not disappointed. Small and focussed on their start - the food. Warm & welcoming and good food. Parking is a challenge and location may give some cause for concern but well worth the visit.
17/03/2017: We visited as a wee pre-show treat and ordered from the A-la-carte menu.We started with the Pan seared scallops, parsnip purée, roast chorizo & an apple gel - delicious. 4 scallops and the accompaniments completed the taste perfectly.I then had pan seared sea bream, king prawn & spring onion kebab, crispy potatoes, salsa verde. Wow, is all I can say, again the combination of flavours were exquisite and the food was cooked to perfection. My partner had one of the specials (Venison), and again I could find no fault at all with it. Perfect.Finally we finished off with the Banoffee cheesecake, caramelised banana, banana curd & salted popcorn for me and the Jaffa cake artic roll, dark chocolate ganache, orange jelly for my partner. A lovely completion to a lovely meal (don't be put off by the Jaffa Cake Arctic Roll title, there wasn't a jaffa cake in sight, but a deconstruction into an arctic roll was a delight).House red was tasty, unlike some of the stuff you get in other restaurants.The service and attention was excellent and the staff knowledgeable and passionate about their product.The seating was comfortable enough, if very slightly cramped. It's a small venue which has to make the most of available space, so understandable.Thanks guys, we'll be back.


Cail Bruich

Hillhead, Glasgow City
16/03/2017: Since my last review I've visited Cail Bruich several times so feel it's time for an update. The restaurant, comfortable, service, impeccable, but it's the food that's the star. Today I had the tasting menu with paired wines, every course delicious and the wine selection perfect. The sommelier knew his stuff with the wine pairing perfect for each course. No doubt I'll be back soon to this superb restaurant.
14/03/2017: My wife and I celebrated my birthday last Saturday evening with a dinner in Cail Bruich. We had not been before but read the reviews in TripAdvisor. The food was very unique and the combination of spices and cooking give it a memorable experience. The staff were most helpful and friendly and services were all first classWe will certainly return and recommend this restaurant to others


Gamba Seafood Restaurant

3 offers
Anderston / City, Glasgow City, 30-45£
13/03/2017: We returned to our favourite restaurant in Glasgow after a 3 year break when we retired and were not disappointed.Gamba continues to outshine anywhere we have ever eaten and excels in producing the finest fish and seafood all beautifully presented by professional and efficient service. Thank you
12/03/2017: Initial impression of Gamba was fine seafood restaurant and the meal lived up to that expectation.However, and I don't like starting off negative but the only negative aspect of this experience occurred at the start.After entering and being shown to the bar, where the other members of my party were waiting, we greeted each other and had small conversation. Then one of the members of the party, the main booker in fact said that they were still waiting for the table. The woman behind the bar, who was eavesdropping obviously, butted in quite defensively and corrected the party member in what I perceive as a hostile and rude tone. She essentially said that the table has always been ready and they were just waiting on "them" (pointing to me and my fiancé) she then tried to salvage and asked if we'd like to be seated and she would go and get someone to show us to the table. I felt like saying no but it wasn't my booking and it's not my celebration. But it was not a pleasant way to start our dining experience and if she hadn't said that I would have given five stars. Anyway, now that I've gotten that out of the way. The rest of the staff were so friendly, accommodating and attentive. My only suggestion to improve would be to add more cocktails to the menu. Our party weren't dazzled by the list but I guess cocktails are more a trendy restaurant accompaniment as opposed to a fine dining establishment beverage.The choice on the menu was decadent and I mean that in the best way. Everything seemed so eloquently placed and created by an obviously skilled chef.I had the Sashimi yellow fin tuna and it was delicious! It was accompanied with finely sliced scallops. The tuna was delicately situated on the plate to create a Rose. If you're okay eating cold fish with chopsticks then I recommend this.One of my party had the Portland crab and it was the starter of the night. It was so creamy and rich, or so I was told by everyone at the table. I never got to try it! But next time I'll try it!Another party member had the soup and they said it was beautiful and delicious, again I'll have to take their word on it as I was the only one that never had it! I'll order two starters next time so I can taste it!And the last party member had the salmon and that was amazing but you can never go wrong with some salmon, especially if its done properly.MainsI had the Monkfish tamari steam cooked in paper. It had to have been one of the nicest fish dishes I have ever tried and I would have no trouble in recommending it to anyone. All the proteins in that paper were so tender and succulent. It was the first time I had tried steam scallops, which accompanies it, and they were so tender and juicy. My preference remains seared but steamed was still amazing!One member of my party got the seared king scallops with black pudding and I never knew how well those two things went together until now. Bravo! The Seabass was the main of the night as it contained spicy elements on the plate that reminded us all of the Mediterranean and tapas. The fish was expertly cooked and combined with pepper, garlic and prawns; perfection!Lastly the halibut and that contained an unusual combination of mango and crab but to my surprise it was delicious. The sweetness of the mango and the saltiness of the crab (maybe due to this member liking salt too much) went perfectly.We all had a desert each and they weren't the best in the world unfortunately. The cherry and amaretto creme brûlée was too sweet and sickly, their special bake well was also too sweet and sickly. My cheesecake was not overly sweet to my surprise considering the other deserts but it was rather bland with only the slightest touch of a peanut butter like taste.Perhaps that was what they were going for when making it. Overall, we were all very happy with our meal and the service. Food was outstanding and better than most places in Glasgow. Please don't take my nitpicking to mean the food was in anyway bad, it just wasn't matching the presumed taste in my head.I would definitely suggest trying Gamba to everyone who loves seafood and fine dining.Thanks for reading!

Black Sheep Bistro

Hillhead, Glasgow City, 20-30£
18/03/2017: This is becoming my favourite place to eat. We had a 6:30 pm reservation, it's a busy wee place so you have to book well in advance. It's cozy and welcoming; and the staff are lovely. My partner had prawn cocktail and balmoral chicken, I had crab cakes and pesto haddock. All were delicious. We had coffee and soft drinks. The portions are big so I had to rely on my boyfriend to help me finish:) the bill was £58. Happy with that.... although we were unable to do much we were so full for the rest of the night! A great restaurant, well done Black Sheep Bistro
14/03/2017: Lugar bem gostoso. Bom para se estar em casais, famílias ou grupos. Aconchegante com comida deliciosa. Meu prato favorito é Salmão com purê de banana da terra. Suave, combina muito e satisfaz .


Chin Chin Bar Restaurant

Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery

Anderston / City, Glasgow City
19/03/2017: We were back at the Buttery and had an excellent meal once again. Very nice atmosphere, staff are very attentive and helpful. Food it perfect! Staff also noted it was our anniversary and brought out a selection of treets with "happy anniversay" written in chocolate which was a nice touch. Highly recommend Two Fat Ladies at Buttery. Huge thanks to Maddie and Ryan help sort out wee mix up with booking reference
17/03/2017: I was given a gift voucher for my birthday last July and have just got round to using it!! We were last here in February 2016 and were looking forward to going back. We were not disappointed!! I had the Flash Fried West Coast Scallops for my starter - yummy! Beautiful caramelisation on the scallops which offset the sweetness of the bacon, butter onion, lettuce and garden pea cream!! There was a great choice of main courses but I opted for the Mignons of Perthshire Beef Fillet with Stornoway Black Pudding Crush and Pepper Sauce. The beef was cooked to perfection and the black pudding with potatoes was a great accompaniment. Dessert consisted of a brandy tuile basket with a trio of ice creams. Yummy (again!) Food is consistently good as is the service. Hoping it won't be another year before I go back (but it is my birthday again in July!! - hint, hint!!)


Ox and Finch

Anderston / City, Glasgow City
17/03/2017: A varied menu of small dishes for sharing is a perfect way to eat in my book, and that's just what the Ox and Finch provides.
16/03/2017: The food was fabulous to a dish and the staff were even better. They had just the right amount of care for us without overdoing things. They also have a beautiful choice of wines.


Da Claudio

Motherwell South East and Ravenscraig, North Lanarkshire
18/03/2017: I know the title doesn't mean much but it as a really nice restaurant with welcoming staff and excellent food. Our second time there to watch St Johnstone beating the home team. An easy walk from the station and from Air Park. Strongly recommended.
15/03/2017: Best wee restaurant in Motherwell. 5 Star service, 5 star food. Will definitely visit again. Fantastic atmosphere.

Calton, Glasgow City
20/03/2017: Fantastic food, fantastic staff. Just. Damned. Good! Somehow cheap as well? How u do dis?

The Pot Still

Anderston / City, Glasgow City, <20£
14/03/2017: Amazing selection of whiskeys. Special offers available (Whiskey of the week and whiskey of the month). Extremely knowledgable staff. Just ast for a recommendation. Great atmosphere, not many if any tourists. Definitely a great place to go for an after-work pint.
13/03/2017: Fin beliggenhet, flott og avslappende atmosfære, kunder i alle aldre og av begge kjønn, flotte trivelige lokaler, svært hyggelig og kunnskapsrik betjening - som mer enn gjerne bistår med gode råd. Stor variasjon av både utvalg og priser (de server dagens whisky for £2,50), men uansett hva du velger så får du kvalitet. Anbefales.
