Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Opening in October 2012, Glasgow’s latest Spanish-themed restaurant occupies a Cardonald site that’s housed a succession of Italian restaurants over the years. An appealing menu lists 29 tapas and four paellas, and some interesting options include grilled mackerel with a citrus dressing, morcilla (Spanish black pudding), a typically Andalusian dish of slow-cooked leeks with garlic, and a salad of roasted pear with Serrano ham. Prices are a bit below average, with tapas going from about £3.75 up rather than the more typical fiver – order two or three tapas per head and the difference will be noticeable – and there are good lunch and pre-theatre deals. Decent tempranillo (red) and airen (white) house wines will also help keep the bill down to a modest level.
