About The Shandon Belles
We hadn't been to Shandon Belles for a while, for no better reason than no longer working as close by. The meal was lovely, the service very good and it didn't feel (as other restaurants can) as though the 5pm menu was skimping on their usual standard. A very enjoyable meal.
Went here for dinner and was really impressed. The restaurant is lovely inside, smaller than I expected but cosy and has lots of lovely vintage decoration. The service was great. Only one guy on but he was attentive and helpful. The food was amazing! Very tasty and definitely worth the money. I will definitely be back!
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.
