Colourful, eclectic Dennistoun bistro with varied menus centring on locally sourced produce, with friendly service and regular entertainments.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
This cheerful bohemian bistro exudes warmth from its corner location on bustling Duke Street. Cute little lanterns and flickering candlelight give a gentle and peaceful feel to the dining space, while the interesting art on the walls add to the eclectic, artsy vibe, nicely complementing the varied, globally influenced menu. To start, haggis croquettes are hearty and full of flavour beside a rich, creamy Drambuie sauce adding a luxurious element to the dish. Fishcakes are full of bright, zesty flavours that work well with the accompanying chilli and lime salad. Mains include a towering burger complete with tasty pastrami and gooey Applewood cheddar – perfectly paired with chunky home-style chips. Beef and Stornoway black pudding chilli is rich and flavoursome, thanks to the addition of dark chocolate, and, with coriander rice, is an excellent example of fusion food. A wide range of pizzas, baking and daily specials means there is plenty on offer throughout the day. The charmingly friendly staff work hard to make customers feel completely at home in this neighbourhood favourite.
