About OUIBar + KTCHN @ Radisson RED
Enjoyable and great value for money
OUIBar + KTCHN @ Radisson Red
Voucher was value for money in the technical sense. There was a short queue when we arrived, being a Friday night, but we were seated quickly. However, we then sat for 20 minutes without a drinks order or a menu. We flagged someone down and she brought us the 5pm menu over, which was a small card without any actual descriptions of the food options. By the time we had ordered, we had been there almost 40 minutes and then we had a twenty min wait for our food. Pizzas were of a good size, however toppings were limited and the pizza overly cheesy. Our waitress was lovely, but the wait staff seemed a little stressed as the restaurant filled up and I noticed quite a few people waiting for their food.
I would probably not go back, also not helped by having to pay £6 in parking due to the long wait for food. I imagine some of these snags will improve once the hotel/restaurant has been open for longer.
Hip dining at Finnieston Quay
Describing itself as a ‘neo-canteen’, Oui Bar + Kitchen at Radisson Red hotel is a chic and unique dining spot. With an interior decked out in red, black and white; cutting-edge design and wall murals by comic book artist Frank Quitely (plus a prime location right next to the Hydro), its cool credentials are plentiful. As well as offering a groovy setting to drink and dine in, the bar is also a social hub complete with TV snug and pool table.
Oui Bar’s menu offers contemporary cuisine accompanied by fine wine, chilled craft beers and cocktails, all in a striking waterfront location. This would make a great dining choice before heading to the Hydro, SEC, Clyde Auditorium or the many bars of Finnieston.
Contemporary bar dining
Oui Bar + Kitchen serves gourmet pub food such as pizzas, burgers, sharing boards and hearty mains.
Dishes can change, but choices might include the pot of Inverlussa mussels, the Scotch ribeye steak, the scampi & chips and the cauliflower cheese tart.
Pizza choices might feature the mozzarella with sun-dried tomatoes and homemade pesto, the prosciutto with milano salami and taleggio, and the spicy pulled pork with chicken tikka, pepperoni, jalapeños and chilli sauce.
If you are a burger fan, then you can wolf down a gourmet choice such as the BBQ pulled pork rib bun or the Amazing Mrs Barrach’s secret recipe vegan burger.
Sharing boards include the charcuterie & cheese, the pickled vegetables and the Campbell’s pork & haggis sausages.
