What started as a great evening ended up in heated words and an abrupt departure , To put it in plain words the waitress decided to remove all drinks from our table whilst I had visited the bathroom , on return and questioning her the waitress said she would replace , however after consulting her manager the tune changed ,...

We don't live far away so Brel is a great option for us. We have been back time and time again, always receiving excellent food. This time was a valentines dinner with my other half and my visiting sister and her partner. Food was excellent. Just didn't give a five star as service occasionally a little slow.

Popped in for drinks and food after a visit to the cinema. Nice atmosphere and have been here for drinks before. Food was adequate for price. Beer garden looks like good place to hang out if we get some decent weather.

Went to Brel for a family meal whilst visiting our daughter in Glasgow. Food was excellent, especially the pud, belgian chocolate mousse cake was absolutely delicious. My only criticism would be that I like to see what I am eating and I found the lighting to be a little too subdued, it was too dark.

Belgian bar / restaurant located on the cobbled Ashton Lane just behind the Hillend subway station. Nice and bright and would be lovely on a summer's day. When we came in early February, thought it a little drafty and cold.

Went for early evening meal ahead of theatre visit and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent with very attentive and friendly staff. One of the party has a garlic allergy and the restaurant went to great lengths to ensure they provided a garlic free meal. Excellent food and lovely surroundings.

Visited today for lunch with my sister. We both had the Puy Lentil and Beetroot Salad with added Goats Cheese. It was absolutely delicious. It is also great value for money, as it features on the lunch menu, at a promotional price. I visit Brel for lunch, almost every time I am in the Byres Road area. The conservatory dining... More
