Summary

“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!”

Summary

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.

Summary

Chris Charalambous’ ambitious West End venue continues to attract nothing but upbeat feedback. There is an à la carte, but the focus is on the “excellent” and “excellent value” tasting menus with “interesting wine pairings”.
