Colourful, eclectic and friendly Dennistoun bistro with varied menus centring on locally sourced produce.
Tibo has been serving up hip high-quality food and drink to Dennistoun residents for over a decade, long before the so-called gentrification of the area began. Recent menu changes and the addition of a smaller outpost across the street – Tibo To Go, serving takeaway coffees and rolls – suggest that the restaurant might be shaping up to nail its colours to the wall. For the time being burgers and pizzas still hold their place on the extensive menu, the best of which can be found on the short but sophisticated list of main courses, where Scottish meats take centre stage and are artfully arranged. The roast guinea fowl is skilfully cooked, and served alongside haggis samosa and parsnip purée it wouldn’t look out of place in one the city’s priciest restaurants. Their popular breakfast menu runs until 5pm on Sundays – a pretty familiar list (eggs, French toast) all done very well indeed. Tibo’s mismatched dark wood interior is lit by paper lanterns and fairy lights – an inviting boho oasis to spend a few hours in, and still one of the coolest places in G31.
