Restaurant with a difference
The food was lovely. Good value. Restaurant is 70's style but works well. The TV which is now a fish tank was quirky.
There was an 'open mic' evening at 9pm. The musicians were very good. It wasn't too loud either which suited us as we could still chat.
We really enjoyed our evening and would definitely go back day or night.
Cakes thoroughly recommend
Food is decent here and staff welcoming. The home baked cakes in particular are absolutely outstanding. Really perfect cake and I have tested many in my lifetime! Got lots of cuddles from the friendly dog at the next table which was a welcome bonus
Informal Milngavie café, bar and restaurant
Milngavie’s Main Street plays host to Finsbay, an endearingly quirky restaurant, bar and café. Serving everything from breakfast through to dinner and cocktail nightcaps, it is a welcoming neighbourhood hangout. The retro chic decor is fun and will bring back memories for anyone who remembers the Seventies. G Plan furniture, a Tretchikoff-style portrait and a wall decorated with rotary dial phones set the tone. Open mic nights and regular gin club evenings keep it lively.
Scottish produce, global flavours
Offering brunch, lunch and dinner menus, Finsbay’s chefs like to combine Scottish ingredients such as Stornoway black pudding and Arran cheddar with recipes from around the world. You could start your day at Finsbay with a full Scottish breakfast or a lighter bowl of berries, yoghurt and granola. Lunch might be a gourmet sandwich, salad or a croque monsieur.
The dinner menu is very flexible with a range of small plates and sharing platters. Typical starters might be the chicken satay skewers or the salt and pepper calamari. Along with pots of mussels and a selection of chunky burgers, there are main courses such as beer-battered haddock, beef stew with Parmesan mash and a grilled pork chop with chorizo and black pudding hash and peppered spinach.
