    Gorgeous afternoon tea

    This is maybe the nicest afternoon tea I've had in Glasgow. Literally everything on the stand was delicious. Loved the hot savouries, especially the chipolatas! Also the chocolate mousse on the top tier was incredible. Restaurant was very quiet, but our waitress gave us loads of space, so it wasn't uncomfortable. Amazing value, will definitely go back.

    La Bonne Auberge review

    I went here with my friend for a 50th Birthday treat before a show at the Concert Hall & we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea with bubbly. The only thing that spoiled it was the service charge they placed on the bill. We prefer to decide on what to tip and not have it imposed especially as it was nearly five pounds. It would not put me off going back but I don't agree with the charge.
