Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

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.

  • High point: Well-preserved art deco dining room
  • Low point: Lighting so low you may squint a bit
  • Notable dish: Grilled fillets of sea bass with crab bon-bons, steamed greens, fennel and citrus dressing
