    Another great night at Shandon Belles

    I do not come to the Shandon Belles often enough! I realised this half way through my first course of west coast seafood salad in a filo nest. Followed by a splendid aubergine and cauliflower curry and accompanied by a nice Sangiovese. My dining partners had the beef which was also excellent and very tender. Puddings were fabby too. We were served by charming and efficient staff on cosy and quirky surroundings. We will be back a bientot!

    Had a fantastic meal at Shandon belle as the food was excellent and all the staff made us feel very welcome. Four of us had different starters all excellent, we all had the beef and as promised by our waiter it cut like butter and tasted delicious, advisable to have some sides. Hadn't been for a while but won't be leaving it long before we go back forgot how good it was.

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.
