Harden's survey result
“Really carefully thought out and extremely well executed dishes” – “some of the best in Scotland” – “showcase the best of Scottish produce” at Paul & Chris Charalambous’s under-the-radar, yet exceptional West End outfit. “Even when a dish is a little challenging – such as a pre-dessert of white asparagus parfait with black olive meringue and marinated strawberries – when eaten the combination was a delicious revelation”. “A slight refresh to the décor has worked well, though there’s not much they can do about the unprepossessing exterior”.
“Top-notch in every way, and a league apart from their competitors” is the general verdict on this West End venture from brothers Paul and Chris Charalambous (“a slightly more formal setting than you’d get in, say, trendy Finnieston”). “Flavours are bright and clear, in classical combinations showing off the largely Scottish produce, and the dishes as a whole all work extremely well”. It’s “not much to look at from the outside”, though, while the lighting inside is a bit dim “for the intricacy and delicacy of the plating, as well as for reading the menu!”
When it comes to “Scottish contemporary cooking at its best!”, some cognoscenti tip brothers Paul & Chris Charalambous’s West End venture as “the best fine-dining currently on offer in Glasgow”. “It’s not on one of the most prepossessing stretches of road (if you weren’t going here, you’d probably hurry past), but at night there’s a subdued warm glow from the dim-lit interior, which has a vaguely French brasserie-cum-bistro feel: a bit old-fashioned, but nice and comfortable, dimly lit and cosy”. The cuisine is “always inventive and majors on fresh local ingredients”, from a variety of set menus, including a tasting option.
