It’s simple really, our calling card is sustainable Scottish seafood.

Our name comes from the Gaelic word for fish. It’s a wee bit tricky to pronounce, but it’s no bother if guests don’t get it quite right. With delicious fresh produce served by our very own Head Chef, Sean Currie, you'll feel the energy in the way we go about things – our warm welcome, enthusiasm for what we do, and, of course, a splash of Glaswegian banter.

Serving sustainable Scottish seafood is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why £1 on every bill goes to The Firth Forth Lobster Hatchery, who hatch, rear and release lobsters to ensure stocks remain plentiful for future generations. Sea more on Instagram: @lobsterhatchery

    Food was beautiful, highly recommend the duck main! But our overall experience was great due to our server Finlay, he was so friendly and a really genuinely nice person. Will definitely be back and recommend.

    Food took a while despite restaurant being very quiet and we only ordered one main dish and a side. Food must've been left on the pass a while as got cold rather quickly. Poor value for money for what we ordered.

    Lovely food but very expensive. Ambience ok but a bit dark. The bar should be lit up. Despite nice lighting the room lacked beauty - too cavernous.

    Unfortunately, a HUGE disappointment this time.. We have a tradition for NYE weekend dining at our favourite eateries included Iasg. For a ‘high class’ seafood restaurant within a 5star hotel to tell you they have no Lobster and then virtually no seafood is simply unacceptable. We were anticipating the seafood platter and my husbands favourite, lobster, this Hogmany and were increasingly disappointed . For what we ate, we could have eaten a dozen places elsewhere - we’ll be rethinking our restaurant choices for Hogmanay 2024 & thereafter. Such a shame.

    Was a quiet night at restaurant which made it easier to chat with friend however did make it a little ghostly in a large room. The staff were attentive and polite and timed courses and interruptions well . The food was good quality and flavoursome and no complaints on any of it. I think the prices a little inflated in particular on starters and desserts. Overall a pleasant and enjoyable meal in attractive surroundings, though there was a sense of being in an hotel restaurant, though that could have been due to quiet night.

    Had lunch and dinner in the restaurant, my lunch was amazing so no complaints however the choice available for my wife was limited. Seems a strange choice of having a seafood restaurant in a hotel and then with only limited non seafood items available. Is a stand alone type of restaurant advisable ? My wife had as a dessert at lunch cheese and crackers. 2 crackers, a portion of cheese that was the same size as a portion of butter, tiny, and 4 tiny batons of apple. Very poor. Evening meal was Rib eye at £48. Quite possibly the worst steak I've had, the steak knife struggled to cut it, I was chewing for ever and we both took about 3/4 of the steak home for our dogs. Very over priced and very poor steak. The staff however were amazing but so many better restaurant options in Glasgow

    In summary there were elements of the service that could have been better, but the staff were friendly. The food was very good, but we were only offered a set menu . ( Sunday lunchtime) . The restaurant area itself was well decorated and maintained but it had the feeling of a large “ barn “ or canteen and lacked any character , so overall for the money a disappointing experience.

    We arrived at hotel and stood some time waiting at the restaurant reception desk which was unmanned, lots of staff walked by , no one asked if they could help ,had to go to main reception and was told someone would be with us shortly. Table was OK although a little close to diners on each side, white wine was warm and had to ask for a cold bottle. Water glasses were not routinely filled and again had to ask. I have soda in my wine and it took ordering three times for it to arrive. Food was again OK, the cod scotch egg was the highlight of my meal, mussels were cooked perfectly however the goan curry sauce was lacklustre. Hubbies lamb was again OK nothing exciting. The restaurant lacked any sense of a special night out, it was disappointing. I cannot remember a restaurant when you have after dinner coffees there is no shortbread/ tablet/ small chocolate or some small delicacy. Having previously eaten here ( pre pandemic ) on many occasions I don’t feel that the iasg restaurant provides the five star experience that I used to get. It was pricy and really not worth the cost as I could have been eating OK food anywhere there was nothing that made it a dining experience. We wont eat here again, such a shame as it used to be one of my favourites for a special occasion.
