About Kelvingrove Cafe

In 1896 the Kelvingrove Café opened its doors for the first time and instantly became a favourite lunch spot for visitors to the recently finished Kelvingrove Park.

In 117 years it has had many different offerings but in 2013 we took it back to its Victorian roots and once again made it a contemporary European Grand Café. We are interested in knock out tastes and flavours that complement the social atmosphere of the café.

We were in for a couple drinks on Saturday for my girlfriends birthday and the girls that served us were brilliant and went over and beyond with cake/balloons. Will definitely be back to try more of the food and drink. Thank you very much!

Granted, my reservation was for 12 but we were given small round tables meaning people in our group were sat with their backs to each other. One waitress, I cannot fault, she was wonderful but the other girl repeatedly ignored a few members of the group and gave the impression of being angry and frustrated all evening.

Fantastic night! Food was delicious! The staff were very attentive, friendly and went the extra mile to provide a cake for our joint 50th celebration. Nothing but good things to say. Thanks to all the staff, I hope to be back v soon!

We had a great meal at the cafe and the team made us really welcome, ensuring we had all we needed to enjoy our afternoon. The atmosphere in the cafe is relaxed and the location makes it a great meeting place for friends and family alike. I am sure we will be back soon - thanks for giving us a great day!

Unfortunately when I arrived at the café for my reservation they had closed. No effort was made to contact me to make me aware of the closure. This was disappointing as it was our anniversary evening.

Good place for a drink but everyone was let down by the food. The chicken had very little meat on bone. The fish on bone was over salted to the point almost inedible, the cod was apparently underwhelming. The service was friendly but very slow and hard to get attention, The drinks were good especially old fashions

We were a little sad the menu had changed as we loved the halloumi! However I had a lovely aubergine and feta and my husband enjoyed his food. Unfortunately the whole place was absolutely freezing, there appeared to be no heating on anywhere in the bar, and though we were sat right beside the lovely open fire it was too cold to stay on for drinks.

I found the menu slightly limited and found it strange you had high chairs for kids but no kids options. My friend had a burger and said it was delish and my meal was nice. I appreciate lots of people like to take their dogs out but felt 2 of 3 in the one party roaming around off the lead a bit much especially when one of them peed on the floor! Girls who served us was lovely but on her own so service a bit slow which is fair enough as she was the only front of house serving. I would return but wouldn’t rush back.

I booked online for four I was not prompted to give details of the diners - I arrived late however my son and nephew had been waiting for 30 mins when my daughter aged 11 and I arrived we were told we could not stay as under 18 were not allowed inthe bar after 6. Saturday before Xmas nowhere to eat! Nothing on internet to say kids couldn’t eat - nothing online when booked to say kids not welcome - manager dealt with the situation quite well waiting staff appalling bar manager appalling overall terrible experience
