This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
What the Cabin lacks in location (a rather uninspiring spot on the Whiteinch-end of Dumbarton Road) it makes up for in quality cooking and bags of character. The outside is decorated with sophisticated art deco-style lettering, but inside it is refreshingly unpretentious and snug. First opened in 1890, the restaurant is now run by James Haldane who greets customers with smiling, friendly banter. The menu is carefully considered and constructed – a typical selection of starters includes Thai meatballs with noodles and mango oyster sauce dressing, or king prawn and salmon fishcakes with salad and sweet chilli sauce and garlic mayonnaise, which are gone all too quick. For a main, the breast of guinea fowl with black pudding and cider and apple cream sauce is deftly prepared, and there is a changing seafood and vegetarian dish of the day. Head over here for the ‘Saturday Night Live’ offer – a choice of three-course meal from the à la carte, priced £30, and then live musical entertainment to enjoy.
