We have visited Mharsanta many times and always enjoyed our visits. On this visit we brought along our two friends and am delighted to say we were not disappointed. The choice of food was excellent and there were clean plates all round although my friend struggled to finish fish and chips as fish was really big but very tasty.
There was a good choice of wines etc.
Service was excellent and we were very well looked after.
Our friends really enjoyed their meal and the ambience and are putting it on their ‘hit’ list of Glasgow restaurants.
Would encourage anyone who enjoys good, Scottish food to visit and enjoy.

Food was great and staff were lovely. Did feel we were holding them up as we were the last diners in the restaurant a lot of banging around and door banging. Felt we had to leave. I suppose that’s down to covid and dwindling numbers.

First time eating at Mharsanta last night. The food was amazing! Service was great, all staff were friendly and food and drinks were served promptly.
The haggis scotch egg and the mussles in particular were outstanding.
Decor and atmosphere was very relaxed. Will definitely be back and will recommend highly.

Very disappointed. Visited on Friday afternoon and the food and service was really good. Visited again the following afternoon to let another friend experience it and it was very poor indeed. Asked for bread instead of fries with the muscles and was provided with what I can only describe an dense dry and in my opinion a few days old stale bread. After the starter there was a good 15 mins wait before the main came out and then almost a half hour wait for the dishes to be collected after the main. Barely seen a staff member outside the restaurant where I was sitting at all. Even witnessed another couple who waited so long to give their order they ended up leaving. My annoyance was enhanced as the place wasn't even that busy. Last issue was the toilets. Went to the cubicle and found a used mask on the door abandoned. I wont be back sadly.

Hi George, this is most certainly not the standards we strive to deliver or are known for. All of our food is locally sourced and fresh daily. We will look into this further with the team as aim to deliver excellent hospitality

In Glasgow for the first time and wanted something traditionally Scottish so fortunately we were lucky enough to come across this restaurant. Covid appropriate as soon as we crossed the threshold and made to feel welcome straight away. Both decided on a cocktail starter then only had a main meal each, sharing a bottle of wine, but the portions were generous so no need for a dessert. Happy to report that the staff were excellent in their knowledge of the area and great recommendations to enhance our enjoyment of the city. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant, and more importantly the staff who supported us

Clearly very short staffed affecting the quality of the service & the drinks. It was our second visit and we were very dissapointed as the cocktails & service had been great last time. Let’s hope management improves & it doesn’t represent a slip in standards. Staff were very apologetic - it wasn’t their fault.

Good lunch deals, drinks a little over priced, £5.90 for a cider, is above average. But doesn't take away the fact its an incredible eatery.

There were 4 of us and I think two were very happy with their food and 2 were not. Choice of meals may have been the decider.
The streaky bacon on the burger and club sandwich was very fatty and under cooked. The sandwich had very little to commend it. The chips were a little soggy and there were too many.
The croquettes and soup starters were very nice and the mussels were great. I had heard really good things about the food but I think a restaurant that can't get a club sandwich right is doing something wrong....its not rocket science.
