About The Shandon Belles
Return in a heartbeat
The salmon/pancetta dish was delicious. Suitable for intimate dinner or family occasion
Dinner for 4
Really enjoyed our visit with friends - first time for them! The deal was excellent and food first class. House wine is a great bargain and well received. Some quirky twists on familiar dishes e.g. Curried haddock risotto or salmon and garden pea pasta. Loved the service being prompt, attentive and not intrusive. We'll be back again soon.
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.
