One of Glasgow's oldest restaurants, this art deco venue offers classic dining with a touch of old-school glamour and smart, snappy service.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
Reserved for the likes of special occasions, celebrations and the high society, this plush octogenarian holds a staunch reputation as being one of the most high-end restaurants in Glasgow. The dining room’s incredible art deco interior – all corals, golds and sultry lighting – give the place more than a touch of old-school glamour, helped by super-efficient service. You can choose from ‘Rogano classics’, such as Loch Fyne oysters, Scottish seafood fruits de mer, or grilled lemon sole – all on the menu since 1935. Or go for more complex, contemporary dishes, such as a blue cheese brûlée starter, or a main of grilled fillets of sea bass with crab bon-bons, pak choi and fennel and citrus dressing. You might presume that a starter of langoustines en croute would be a French-style dish – so don’t be too surprised when they arrive individually wrapped in crisp filo pastry with a red pepper aioli for dipping, making them more like delicious, high-end spring rolls filled with succulent shellfish. Chocolate mousse with honeycomb is everything that you might expect of a fine-dining dessert – and more.
