About The Shandon Belles
Will make up for not visiting before. So so nice. Lived it !!
Great restaurant with lovely staff
We really enjoyed our visit - the food was very tasty, the staff very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere perfect for a lovely night out with a friend. We would definitely go back.
We both had duck with poached pear to start and it was cooked perfectly, very good and a good sized portion.
My friend had chicken with Isle of Arran haggis and she thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the Cajun salmon with fennel and orange salad and it was delicious. We had a huge dish of new potatoes as a side dish too.
My friend had cheesecake and I had the lemon tart with white chocolate ice cream as dessert - both yummy. I don't know how we had room for the tablet that came with our tea / coffee but we did! A thoroughly enjoyable evening and many thanks to the staff for making it so.
Cosy bistro towards Glasgow West End
Sitting in a quiet residential part of Glasgow’s Argyle Street, on the western side of the M8, The Shandon Belles is a cosy little bistro. Part of the Two Fats family, it nestles below Two Fat Ladies at The Buttery. With exposed stone, stained glass features and walls lined with curios, it is a warm, inviting and quirky space. The decor has more homely charm than the grand, historic setting of the upstairs restaurant but The Shandon Belles has the same emphasis on thoughtful cooking using top quality ingredients.
Hearty cooking, affordable prices
Dishes from around the world can be found at The Shandon Belles. The menu changes regularly but typical starters might be the smoked chicken and chorizo terrine or the goats’ cheese and caramelised balsamic red onion crostini.
Main courses might be a saag aloo curry, chicken saltimbocca or the house cottage pie. Each day, there is also a fish and meat special. Dessert choices could include a trio of Scottish cheeses; creamed rice pudding or the Shandon Belles’ cheesecake. The prices at The Shandon Belles mean that visits do not have to be restricted to special occasions. The cocktail menu and wine list are just as attractive.
