Scottish

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

                                        My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with a lovely meal. It felt very special and was made memoriable with the great food and service from Daniel and Shaun.

                                        Very poor/limited choice on menu. Happy with fish but would like more choice. Not as good as it used to be sadly.

                                        Christmas lunch - menu very limited and the Fruit de Creel was not value hit money at. £85.00. Online it said £6(.00 but was £85.00 we asked go Ref bread for the table- ( people were at the table and 3 rolls came. Dessert- we thought the waffles would be heated but there weren’t and as a result quite chewy.

                                        Arrived for 3.30table booking to find it wasn’t the full menu until 5 a bit annoying but as restaurant was not even half full we sat with a drink and waited as it was too late for us to go elsewhere, bar upstairs closed.

                                        Charged £39.80 for 2 glasses of Prosecco. £40 service charge for 6 people! Tiny portions of food. Seafood broth was a thimble full of broth with muscles that were still closed, scallop starter had 2 tiny scallops £40 for a small steak and monk fish main course was dry and also tiny. Disorganised and blasting DJ music. Overall poor. Wouldn’t to go back or recommend 😞

                                        Always such a nice treat going to blythswood for dinner! The food was incredible quality, beautifully cooked and presented; the service was great and we didn’t feel rushed in any way; and the space is so special. Well worth a visit!! My only issue was with the caramel sundae, the arran ice cream was tasty but could have done with a little more caramel, and unsure about the marshmallow addition... Plum trifle on the other hand was 10/10!

                                        Totally amateur , inattentive staff ; indifferent food-desiccated presentation of oysters and portion of monkfish the size of a fish finger which was probably a blessing ; disco noisy ; ambience of an aircraft hangar . Needs an overhaul in terms of staff training . I can't see this place surviving and have cancelled a forward booking.

                                        It beggars belief that the food served in this beautiful restaurant within a luxury hotel can be so terrible. The lobster benedict was awful - a few slithers of lobster completely overcooked by a dismal, underseasoned hollandaise, plonked atop some soggy, tasteless spinach and the thickest, breadiest "muffin". Orkney crab, barely dressed or seasoned and served with a limp, greasy rosti. The desserts were even worse, lemon "meringue" waffles so thick and stodgy, lacking any finesse, served with a soapy tasting lemon curd and soft mallow, not meringue. Banana bread slice served with raisins, very unappetising on the plate and equally so in the mouth. If it weren't for the Moet event we were booked for, we'd have sent the food back and gone elsewhere. The event was fun and gave the restaurant a cheerful, festive vibe with a choir and DJ. Without, I fear it may have felt quite soulless, which is a shame as this place should and could be so much more.

                                        Main course missing two main ingredients, to fix this the brought over a bowl of cheese. We were hotel guests and asked to charge to our room but they called us at our room before coming up with a card machine. Also had breakfast at the hotel, poor continental and over charged us. The did take £2 off the bill after that. No salt and pepper on the table

                                        Food was outstanding. Only issue was that it cooled down really quickly. Plates need to be warmed especially the side orders. By the time you are ready for them the food was cold. Lovely place and staff were friendly and attentive. All round it was excellent and I'll definitely be back.

                                        First time here now that it’s a seafood restaurant, ordered the platter which was very nice however my only critique is that they should have given a lobster pick as we couldn’t get into the lobster claw , warm wet towel would have been lovely after eating something that you need to use your hands for or a lemon wet wipe , these are things we get for our usual seafood place that we visit , However as I say a small critique overall very nice

                                        Quality was excellent, however timing issues were very apparent and led to disappointment. Steaks and fish main courses came out approx ten minutes apart meaning the food was cold for some of the party. Drinks service was slow and some of the waiting team didn’t know basics about the food or the drinks. This is understandable when new, but it seems that few of the staff were experienced. Service was friendly but lacked finesse. Things just weren’t as we would have expected for this price. Sadly lacking in the timing and finesse that you’d expect for this price.

                                        I booked a table of 6 for a working lunch and we had a wonderful meal. The setting is beautiful and the service was warm and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was truly delicious. The booking process was a little confusing. I booked via OpenTable and they left a voicemail saying I needed to phone to confirm the booking. When I phoned there was no record of the booking so I had to rebook. I received double confirmation emails. Anyway, in the event it didn't matter and we had a great time.

                                        our waiter,Daniel, was excellent, very courteous, polite and helpful. The food at diner was on the whole very good but my daughters main had to go back and then getting a replacement took an extremely long time. Breakfast was a different experience. The service was poor, badly managed and food took a long time to arrive.Extra tea didn't arrive until we were leaving our table. Such a shame but there is obviously some work to be done to tackle service issues. Food is excellent.
