Located on the seafront, the Commodore has ample parking to the rear. Booking isn't required as the restaurant/bar is large. We've never not managed to get a table. In the colder... More

It had been a while since we last visited the Commodore for a meal so after a fine walk along Helensburgh's promenade we were hungry enough to give it another go. Considering it was a Saturday evening and the place was very busy the friendly staff soon had us seated with a drink in our hand. Minutes later we were... More

Haven't been to the commodore for three years and after tonight don't think I would return. I started with the prawn and lobster cocktail which was lovely. My partner had chicken wings to start with. Three measly wings definitely not worth the money! He then had the hunters chicken which he thoroughly enjoyed so much so he was scrapping the... More

We had dinner here with some friends on a busy Saturday night. Despite the number of customers the service was fairly good. Our waitress had an American accent, sorry didn't get your name, but she was pleasant and made up for the not so hot food, which was a pity, we would have mentioned it but didn't.

We've visited the Commodore 3 times and each time we've been served by nice attentive staff. The food is pretty tasty and is good value. Decor is tasteful and welcoming. Would def recommend a visit to the Commodore if you're in Helensburgh.
