About Atlantic Brasserie
Yet again great meal at Atlantic, always excellent, with efficient and friendly staff. Keep up the good work folks.
Wasn't quite sure what to expect as I descended the steps to the restaurant and there were only about a dozen others eating at 8.30pm on Tuesday night. Inside the restaurant though the décor was fresh and attractive; the welcome very friendly; the table service friendly and efficient; the food fabulous; and value for money which surely cannot be beaten - £15.95 for two courses from the excellent Menu Du Jour. Unhesitating strong recommendation from me!
Classic French brasserie in city centre
Located on St Vincent Place, Atlantic Bar and Brasserie is a French restaurant on the lower ground floor, underneath sister restaurant The Anchor Line. Inspired by an early Glasgow pop-up restaurant which was built for the Empire Exhibition of 1938, Atlantic offers a contemporary French brasserie and bar in a sophisticated and glamorous vintage setting
Modern and classic French dishes
With a full rotisserie and Robata grill, as well as conventional stoves and ovens, there is always plenty of theatre in Atlantic’s open kitchens. As well as rotisserie chicken and 21-day dry-aged steaks cooked on the Robata, the chefs offer onion soup, steak tartare, oysters and snails in garlic butter.
There are warming beef Bourguignon stews; duck breasts in aromatic orange sauce and Perthshire lamb rumps roasted with thyme. Fish lovers will appreciate the whole lemon sole or La Bouillabaisse – the classic fish stew from Marseilles. Having finished off with the tarte Tatin or crème brulée, diners can sit back (perhaps with a Cognac or calvados) and congratulate themselves on having bien mangé.
