8 top places to eat in Dennistoun

I moved to Dennistoun in July 2016 from Shawlands, thinking I would miss much of the lovely food scene in the Southside – but glad to say, the east end of the city proved me wrong. Dennistoun has changed much in the past few years, and quickly. The streets of Duke Street, Alexandra Parade and…

Red Onion

Here’s our review for Red Onion, on 257 W Campbell St, Glasgow G2 4TT. This place combines classic Scottish food with some international twists. The menu isn’t too large, but it does seem to have a good range of different meats – duck, chicken, beef, fish, plus a number of veggie options. Inside, the place is big,…

Drygate

The place We’d been in the bar upstairs, renown for having one of the best beer terraces in Glasgow, but this was our first time in the restaurant downstairs. It’s got a great atmosphere with panoramic views to the brewery and nice comfy booths. The walls have some of the designs from the cans which…

Cafe Rogano: 5 reasons why we were dissappointed

A well-known seafood restaurant, Rogano has been established in Glasgow since 1935. For a place that’s been in the city centre for over 70 years, I was looking forward to visiting this place and both of us had high expectations. Sadly, the place didn’t really impress us.

Cafe Sono, Argyle Street

Visited in August 2017, Cafe Sono can be found under the rail tracks, just past the 4 Corners. It is that area of town that most go out of their way to avoid.  It is also one of our greatest finds.  It is a small place with a few chairs in the back and a sofa….

Côte Brasserie, West Nile Street

Date of visit:mid-weekend of May 23rd, 2018 This restaurant is part of a French brasserie chain. Quoting their website, Côte is “inspired by the brasseries of Paris, championing relaxed all-day dining and serving authentic French classics made from great quality, fresh ingredients.” Did it feel Parisian? I can’t say it did, but what we did…

Bill’s, West Nile Street

Date of visit: mid-weekend of May 16th, 2018 Bill’s is a chain of restaurants and the one in Glasgow is right in the centre of the city, on West Nile Street. The moment we stepped in we were pleasantly surprised with how nice it is inside. It’s finished with original brickwork and wood panelling –…

Charcoals, Renfield Street

Date of visit: mid-weekend of May 9th, 2018 A friend of us recommended this place for indian food. He said it didn’t look as much from outside, but that is was nicer inside. Funnily enough, I’d been walking past it every day for 2 years on my way to work and hadn’t ever noticed it….
