About Bell & Felix
More than just a bistro
Don't be fooled by the unassuming exterior, Bell & Felix is much more than just a coffee/cake house. By evening the premises are cosily lit, making for a romantic and intimate atmosphere. Food is of a really good quality, varied with something to suit everyone, fab seafood, great choice of specials & well presented.
Fab wee restaurant! 1st visit, great food, great cocktails and lovely staff! Loved the fairy lights! Would definitely recommend!
Scottish café bistro in Shawlands
Bell and Felix is a family-friendly and proudly independent café bistro on Kilmarnock Road in Glasgow’s Southside. Hung with pictures of Glasgow, Bell and Felix features both exposed brick and whitewashed walls. While the interior design is clean and simple, the warm and friendly welcome reflects the venue’s status as a cosy neighbourhood hangout.
Fresh, local produce and home-style cooking
At Bell and Felix, the kitchen likes to use local and seasonally sourced ingredients and they prep and cook as much as they can in-house. The emphasis is on simple recipes and home-style comfort food. A slight Italian influence peeps through in dishes like the salmon and pea risotto which appears from time to time on the specials.
During the day, it is all about colourful salads, ciabatta and sandwich fillings, daily changing soups, tarts and quiches which reflect the seasons. Top quality tea and coffee are a given while the superb range of cakes always make choosing just one fairly tricky.
In the evenings, the changing menus might offer a starter of fresh goat cheese with walnut salad followed by a Thai style king prawn curry, roast chicken or the Bell and Felix burger. There are always specials and a catch of the day like the monkfish and chorizo risotto topped with a chimmi churri sauce.
