I had never visited this renowned, long established restaurant until my brother and sister-in-law took me there for lunch. We were the first in at lunchtime and my brother ordered a bottle of Prosecco with no offer from the barman, who had no one else to serve, to carry it over to our table in the bar so we had... More

Had the set 2 course lunch and found it to be good value. The pate starter and soups were very good. The mains of pork loin, cajun chicken and mushroom risotto with asparagus, like the burger, were all very good too. Overall, the service was very good and I would recommend.

Had dinner with my husband. Menu has a good selection of food and wines etc. Service is a little formal. the décor is lovely - it reminded us of a restaurant we had dined in on a visit to Paris. The price was reasonable and I would definitely eat here again

My wife and I have eaten here a few times in the past few months – especially good for the pre-theatre menu – good value for money. The menu is quite varied and is essentially Scottish produce cooked in a French style for a not bad price. The staff here are all really friendly and I would advise booking in... More

Went here with wife before concert . Nice interior although tables bit close together and could here other guests conversation. Food was great good quantity and quality. Price wise we used taste card and saved a bit but for 3 courses each plus cola was around 65 before card reduction so not cheap. Would go again

Description
The original La Bonne Auberge first opened its doors on Bastille Day in 1975, and it's had something to celebrate ever since. Glasgow's first French-Mediterranean brasserie and Bar, this smart restaurant with its aproned waiters and blackboard menus now has an AA Rosette to confirm what the locals have known all along. Set in the fashionable Theatreland district, this is a feast of Riviera cuisine.
