Bocadillo Bistro Review

  • Rating Bocadillo Bistro a jewel in the Glasgow Food Crown (Rating 5.0/5)
    I was surprised when reading the menu on their website at the unusual combination of ingredients. As I was going for dinner with my "foodie" friend I felt it was different enough to take a chance. What a great decision that was!!!! The Waitress and the Manager were very friendly and it was obvious from their manner nothing was a problem. The restaurant was spotless and the music was great as it was loud enough to hear but we did not have to shout to talk to each other. It was also a pleasant change that it was not chart music. We were shown to our table and within minutes a large jug of water and glasses were on the table - without asking. The menu gives a good description of each tapas dish and I would be amazed if you could not find plenty to tempt your pallette. We opted for the 2 Meat, 3 Fish and 1 Veggie. The Slider Mini Burgers were absolutely amazing and surprisingly very filling. The Scallops, Langoustine Tails and Prawns were all cooked to perfection. The Corned Beef Sausage Roll is made in house and is scrumptious. The Goats Cheese Crostini had a scattering of nuts which complimented the cheese very well. The Manager made us aware of a special which was available - an Australian Shiraz which was vitually half price. This was an excellent choice and was consumed with gusto. I could not resist the temptation of the cheesecake with berries and I selected Tablet Ice Cream on the side. They have around half a dozen flavours of ice cream. My friend opted for an Irish Coffee - she was very pleased and commented she reckoned it was one of the best she has ever had!!!! Praise indeed. This is a fabulous restaurant and well deserves for some more customers to discover it. We will certainly be back soon - to try some of the other tapas. Ideal if attending the Kings Theatre as only a few minutes walk. Do yourself a favour and go pay this eaterie a visit soon before it is discovered by the masses and you cannot get in!!!
