The forward thinking wine list focuses on natural and organic wines that are complimentary to our food offerings, whilst the cocktail list has some fresh and striking combinations.

I visit every couple of months or so. Food is always of good quality with many interesting dishes to try. A couple of grumpy waitresses aside i’ve always enjoyed my visits and looked forward to returning. Most recent visit though was tempered with a noticeable increase in prices and reduction to n quantity of main ingredients. We paid £65 for five dishes without any drinks. Sliced onglet had 6 slices of meat for £13.50!! My son was served this during my brief visit to the loo and had finished it by my return. Similar sized portion of lambs tongue. £7.50 for tiny ramekin of chocolate mousse served with tea spoons to make the taste experience last. Will be reconsidering if I return at these prices and portion sizes.

We had an utterly brilliant night- and how refreshing to have good that tastes so good but not with a massive price tag! Customer service was second to none and our waitress explained the menu perfectly. Can’t wait to visit again!

Hi I used to love this restaurant but unfortunately for me the food tastes as if it’s lost all care put into it. This was my first time coming since the new chef has been in place, and won’t be back again, this is sad cause it used to be one of my favourite restaurants, but the food felt like it was made carelessly and without any creativity. Sorry, thanks

Very strange flavor combinations - we didn’t care for the sea bass ceviche, the goat cheese, asparagus and lovage or the quail. We also thought our drinks were unextraordinary. Our table was immediately asked for back in less than two hours (which ended up not being a problem), but not a welcoming way to start a dining experience.

We had a really lovely time here. Really delicious food, very helpful service and a lovely buzzy atmosphere. My only caveat is that we ordered far too much food - although these are small plates they are still pretty substantial. Excellent value for money

We used to love this place, but sadly the departure of Rosie Healey has left it a bit lost. We were served garish, psychedelic looking and massively overworked versions of the kinds of things we used to get here. A mullet cevice arrived fluorescent orange with chilli powder, a pea green oil, and chopped chives which totally overpowered the delicate fish and orange. Octopus arrived again bright orange with chilli powder, so unbelievably salty it again drowned the taste of the octopus and lemon which was apparently in there. What sounded like a fresh, delicate dish was in fact barely edible. Cauliflower with zero texture lost in a sea of zhoug. And they ran out of desert by 6.30pm on a Sunday. Also, service wise -we sat with empty glasses for 20 mins trying to order more drinks (the restaurant was half empty) and our water bottle was taken away to make space on the table (never been necessary before) with the assurance she would keep it on the bar and keep topping us up -never to be seen again. Such a disappointing experience at what used to be the best restaurant in Glasgow. We won’t be back, and we’ll be eagerly awaiting Rosie Healey’s new venture.

excellent food and service, however, we were sitting downstairs and with the low ceiling and it being full, I found it very loud (not to say we didnt contribute) but difficult to hear over the table

Reduced menu. Food was innovate but lacking in the wow factor this place once had. Not what it was until quite recently

Really enjoyed the dinner. Thought that the menu could make it clear which dishes were served cold, as three cold plates for dinner didn't feel like value for money. The bread and oil was to die for and the service was excellent.

The quality of the food is exceptional; every dish inspires a gasp of Wow! All the staff are briliant and we have been fortunate enough to have the outstanding Mona looking after us on our last two visits. The overall experience is a solid 10 on all counts.

I hate this requests for feedback on the staff - just seems to me like management wanting customers to grass up the staff, in an exercise that is dressed up as asking about your 'dining experience'. I wish you would stop doing it. For the record we could not have had more charming, delightful and attentive service.

All dishes tried were excellent. The pork was possibly the best we have ever tasted being incredibly tender and flavoursome. The cauliflower was cooked to perfection. All round an very different range of textures and flavours all of which were delicious.
