survey result

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

For a “unique experience with food to match”, head to this acclaimed city-centre basement, that’s long won renown for its “simple fish dishes, well cooked and well presented”“I visited Glasgow in May 2016, and this was the best of the six restaurants I tried”.

Summary

This city-centre basement continues to maintain its reputation for the “best fish and seafood in Glasgow”; the latter comes “cooked simply or not at all (sashimi)” and “they also do good cocktails” (“the Yuzu Margarita is not to be missed”!)

Summary

Fewer reports of late on a city-centre basement that has had quite a name for its fish and seafood in recent years; it’s still tipped for its “competent” cooking, albeit “at a price”, but there has been the odd gripe about “unexciting” fare of late.

Summary

“The best fish soup in town” and “superbly prepared seafood” help evidence the “very serious cooking” at Derek Marshall’s city-centre basement – a “cosy” (if “rather dim”) destination, that has long been one of the Glasgow’s culinary standard bearers.
