Review: Bo’vine, Byres Road

It’s pretty much a given these days that if you want to eat steak at a restaurant, it’s probably going to cost you. Not at Bo’Vine it’s not! I know what you’re thinking – if it’s cheap, surely it’s not very good quality? Wrong again. Bo’Vine specialises in steak and boasts some of the finest meats and wines in Glasgow. Well, I decided to go and sample their new menu and it is safe to say I wasn’t disappointed. Their… Keep Reading

Review: Alla Turca, City Centre

What is it about going swimming that makes you hungry? I could eat a 3 course meal and still be starving after a few lengths at my local pool. And so it was that on a quiet Tuesday I found myself in Alla Turca on Pitt Street, post pool sesh with damp hair and a ravenous appetite. It was quiet for lunchtime (two other tables), however it was a Tuesday so we weren’t expecting it to be full to the… Keep Reading

Review: Bread Meats Bread, St Vincent Street

There have been a lot of mixed reviews regarding this burger joint, and I’m not entirely sure why. With so many similar restaurants popping up, I guess it’s hard not to compare one to another, and perhaps that’s why Bread Meats Bread has had some negative response. I visited for what has to be the third or fourth time and, despite a couple of hiccups, was thoroughly impressed. We walked in the door and were immediately greeted by friendly staff,… Keep Reading

Review: Bibi’s, Dumbarton Road

Despite having opened its doors in 2007, if you tell people you had dinner at Bibi’s Mexican Cantina, most of them will stare blankly back at you. Unfortunately, the reason that the restaurant is so unknown to most is because of its location. It is situated at bottom of Dumbarton Road, deep in the West End, where most city-goers just wouldn’t venture. Well, I took a trip there and I can honestly say, it’s worth the journey. When we walked… Keep Reading

Review: Viva Brazil, City Centre

After hearing about the Viva Brazil’s concept of bringing you meat until you tell them to stop, I was naturally very excited about visiting this nirvana. Located a stone’s throw from Central Station, Viva Brazil is unlike any other restaurant that I have ever been to. First impressions of the place are great. Upon walking through the door the friendly hostess approached us immediately to assist and, as we were waiting on two other members of the party, we were… Keep Reading

Review: Central Market, Merchant City

Given my penchant for a cocktail in the Merchant City, it was always surprising to me that I hadn’t ever ventured into Central Market on Bell Street. Particularly given it won 2013’s most stylish restaurant at the Scottish Style Awards and was more recently entered into the prestigious Waitrose Good Food Guide for 2014. But a few Saturday’s ago that changed when I stumbled in there for lunch with a couple of extremely reliable drinking buddies. Which leads me on… Keep Reading

Review: Inn Deep, Kelvinbridge

Inn Deep, on Great Western Road (just across the river from Kelvinbridge subway station), is an affordable bar and restaurant with a focus on craft beer and hearty food. Situated right on the river Kelvin, Inn Deep has a fantastic little beer garden with some nice views over the river, small park below and the spire of St Mary’s Cathedral. Given we were here a few weeks ago though, on one of the coldest nights of the year, we didn’t… Keep Reading

Review: Sapori D’Italia, Cathcart Road

I first stumbled upon Sapori d’Italia on one of those slate-grey November afternoons when the rain is unrelenting and practically horizontal. Since that day, I have returned several times, joining a group of enthusiastic regulars who enjoy the trattoria’s cozy, unpretentious atmosphere, authentically warm service and consistently delicious Italian food. A small restaurant occupying a corner space just off Cathcart Road, Sapori d’Italia is intimate without feeling too cramped, with ten or so tables all offering a view of the… Keep Reading

Review: Jayz Bar & Restaurant, Shawlands

With the winter weather set to stick around for the foreseeable future, most people are still looking for places to warm up on cold, dark nights with great food and drink. With this thought in our minds, a friend and I headed along to one of the South Side’s most recent additions, Jayz Bar and Restaurant on Kilmarnock Road, in search of comfort food and warming service. Jayz has managed to achieve a friendly, local-bar-feeling, at the same time as… Keep Reading

Review: Burger Meats Bun, West Regent Street

Although it’s only been around a short time, Burger Meats Bun on West Regent Street has managed to generate a buzz around Glasgow quite unlike anything we’ve seen for a while. They’re now in the top 9% (143rd out of 1,654) of restaurants in Scotland’s largest city on TripAdvisor, and their social media reach is nothing to sneer at. After feeling the usual 5pm pangs one Thursday, I knew it was high time to make the 5 minute journey round… Keep Reading
