This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Glasgow’s newest French restaurant celebrated its first anniversary in March 2013, and has already established itself as a firm favourite with many. Run by Frenchman Richard Dupupet, veteran of several Paris bistros, together with head chef Andrew Stott, le Bistro Beaumartin is an independent with real strength of personality that prides itself on marrying the spoils of Scotland’s natural larder to authentic Gallic cooking techniques. There are plenty of cosy quirks in the mismatched chairs, black-and-white photos on the walls and wood-burning stove crackling in the corner, although the long, high-ceilinged space is a little awkward to fully convey the stylish-yet-homely feel. Salads, in starter and main portions, include an exquisite endive and roquefort combination with diced ham, cherry tomatoes and a mustard vinaigrette. The confit duck is served as a kind of pie, with heavily seasoned shreds of off-the-bone bird nestling beneath a fluffy layer of herb crushed potatoes. You won’t taste many better desserts than their dark chocolate and cherry tartlet, its rich textures complemented by a drizzle of milky crème anglaise. With dishes that good, this place deserves to become an institution.

French bistro/bar in the centre of Glasgow
To bring you the best authentic tastes of France, our in-house chef uses traditional French recipes which he learned over his six years working in Paris to cook all his food fresh, daily, from locally sourced ingredients (apart from the frogs' legs, snails and pain poilane - which are all imported from France).
As well as a fine dining experience you can relax and unwind over a glass of wine in our front of house lounge and bar area, where we carry an extensive range of imported French wines as well as beer, spirits and coffee and for those indulgent moments or celebrations our Piper-Heidsieck champagne!

Le Bistro Beaumartin adds a French flavour to Glasgow's culinary palette24 Apr 2012
‘French’ tends to be a label that’s very loosely slapped on a restaurant in Glasgow – often truly being ‘French with a twist of this or that’. That’s changed, however, with Le Bistro Beaumartin popping onto the petite-yet-elite scene to teach Glasgow a…
